This hotel is awesome! The owner is a very friendly French man who made our stay so very pleasant. The meals are pre-fixed and not very large, but satisfying. Meals are at a certain time (not a restaurant). The rooms are adorable. Try to get the upper level. BUGS will get into your room. Place a towel under the door...

An incredible open concept eco lodge - one side facing Tenorio Volcano (actually consisting of four peaks) is open and the views are fantastic. The owner Joel has created lights, planters, cushions and just about anything else you can think of to make with recycled materials. The grounds and hedges are meticulously manicured and there are trails on the property....

Thank you madam, sir, for your so nice comments on our eco-lodge. We also are sad you didn't enjoy our food. Which is not that fancy, yet using local ingredients that international visitors do not know.. banana plantain, yuca, sweet potato. We owe you that one! Please come back and we'll do your menu at your taste. We thank you...

I thought this was an excellent hotel. From our room we had great views of the mountains and the room was quite spacious. Breakfast and dinner were of very high quality and what I liked the most was that we sat down at tables were 6-8 people could sit. This arrangement allowed to meet the other guests and it was...

I photographed 13 species of birds in the lodge gardens on my arrival afternoon. The day trip to Cañon Negro was even better! And the gourmet food can't be beat nor Alex as an excellent guide. Then Tenorio Volcano National Park is one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica, right next door! Excellent choice for my birding trip!

Everything about this place was amazing: the price, the accommodations, the people, and the FOOD. I cant rave enough about it. We spent two awesome nights here and felt so at home interestingly enough given such a blend of cultures. The food itself is worth making the trip, you will never leave a meal disappointed. The property overall is beautiful...

We loved Celeste Mountain Lodge. The location, the architecture and the food were all outstanding. The owners and the manager are always there to serve the guest and offer suggestions on what to do. There are lots of beautiful birds all around the property. The meals are delicious and healthy. We recommend this lodge highly.

Very clean, quiet room. Seahawk colors! Excellent views. The grounds were so breathtaking to walk through and enjoy the vast variety of flowers. Owner was a great host. Food was divine. Close drive to Tenorio National Park. Was just a great place to stay in the mountains.

We loved everything! The warm welcome, the delicious cuisine (the owners are French and Brazilian), the multinational guests, the open and airy feel of the building and the beautiful view at sunset... I could go on and on. Of the 5 places we stayed in Costa Rica, this is my favorite. It has a very modern, green, yet festive and...

This place is really special. Owned by a European and has a very European and modern look and feel. Unfortunately the weather was bad when we were there so we didn't get the views that must be fantastic in clearer weather. Really enjoyed the communal dinners. Very innovative food. The owner could not be a more enthusiastic and attentive inn...

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. It was a change from the beaches we had stayed at earlier in our vacation. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and they even have their own hiking trails. Very close to tenorio national park, which is why we decided to stay here. To our surprise all of our meals were included...
