Stayed in one of the villas for 5 nights with my fiance. Absolutely amazing views and scenery. Both restaurants had great food and the staff was awesome! The infinity pool during the sunset was the spot to be. Definitely staying there in the near future.

A hidden treasure in a mountain rainforest. The view doesn't get any better than this. We were kindly given an upgrade to a superior suite (thank you very much). However I'm quite sure any room type here is just as amazing. Service was outstanding from reception to the restaurant to the beach to the pool. Cheers and enjoy!

I have known this hotel for many years, and it is always a treat to go up to the Amphitheater bar and restaurant for the spectacular sunset. 2 weekends ago I got married at the Zephyr Palace ( part of the same hotel) and it was spectacular. It was an amazing day with and without rain and with views like... More

I am not sure about all of the negativity. We were there for 5 nights and our experience was near perfect. The staff was great. No one ever failed to understand English when I pointed out a couple of small issues. The room as unbelievable. Our private pool was cleaned everyday, even thought it didn't really need it. Saw a...

Great way to view a sunset during dry season. It is ideal to have a 4 wheel drive (or hired car) during the rainy season. Spectacular, romantic place with a lot of interesting history. Just over an hour from SJO and a perfect place for couples!

My husband and I come to Costa Rica again to attend the wedding of a dear friend. It was my husband's 3rd trip, my 2nd. (But our first time at Villa Celetas) We stayed in a villa, room 30.
