I loved my stay at the Rio Celeste Hideaway. I took my wife and kids and stayed there for three nights. What amazed us the most is the experience of being inside a rain forest. It's amazing how the clouds can come in and out off the area and how hard it can rain and then be sunny a few...

This hotel was the 2nd stop of our 2 week vacation. This is our 2nd time visiting Rio Celeste Hideaway, and won't be the last, hotel grounds are beautiful, rained each day we were there, can't complain, you're in the middle of the rain forest, that's what makes everything green and beautiful. We didn't go to see the waterfall this...

Hidden gem in appropriately remote location gives the feel of an oasis in the Rain Forest. Rooms spacious and lovely, outdoor shower was beautiful (don't worry theres one inside too), architectural design and interiors have calm contemporary Indonesian vibe, food was above average, service high quality. Have already recommended to friends and will return myself. Close to several National Parks...

We visited The Rio Celeste Hideaway a couple of months ago. After a long drive, it was a blessing to see such a beautiful hotel. The room was great and clean. The path to the river was great since you can walk 5 minutes and be at the river in no time. The food we had at the restaurant was...

Credit must go where credit is due, and Juan Pablo the bellman is probably the most valuable asset this hotel boasts. He is truly an ambassador of goodwill and happiness, fulfilling the reputation of Ticos as friendly and making each and every person feel welcome and cherished. If I owned a hotel I would hire him away in a heartbeat!...

This place is amazing for the adventurous type like ourselves. We went for our honeymoon in August. The drive to get there was stressful as the roads went from paved to gravel roads with washed out mini canyons from the frequent rains. This hotel was off the beaten path, but beautiful, natural, and eco-friendly. Right on the Rio Celeste river...

Get ready to ride a rocky road to this beautiful hideaway. When driving on your own it is best to navigate from town to town. This is a beautiful place with exotic dark wood furniture, a great pool and hot tubs. The individual cabins are beautifully decorated with the same furniture, elegant sitting area, private jacuzzi & outdoor shower. This...

Getting here is an adventure (our driver had to try 3 times before making it up the last hill--I wouldn't want to drive it myself!), but it is beautiful, peaceful, and secluded. The "casita" accommodations are wonderful (private balcony, outdoor shower), and the pool features 3 hot tubs of varying temperatures. There is also a hiking trail to the river...

A very beautiful and relaxing place to visit. The entire staff was very friendly, very professional and their service was exemplary. Juan Pablo and Felix with their golf cart shuttle were also very helpful in giving information which made our stay and our visit to the PArque Nacional Vulcan Tenorio very enjoyable. Gustavo in the restaurant was fantastic, even entertaining...
