This definitely is a beautiful hotel, tucked away near Tenorio Volcano national Park. The drive is a bit un-nerving for those unfamiliar to driving in Costa Rica. But every bump in the road was worth it. We came to Rio Celeste while friends were visiting from the US. After a wonderful mountain view horseback ride with David, and traditional Tico... More

This place is a little paradise! Semi-private terraces, outdoor showers, VERY large rooms, modern amenities, awesome pool/jacuzzi, great food, and a wonderful atmosphere. We were greeted immediately upon arrival and offered freshly-made juices. Everyone we encountered was more than helpful and very polite. There is a pathway to the Rio Celeste. The road getting there was not easy. It is... More

We spent two nights at Rio Celeste Hideaway during our 2 weeks in Costa Rica. While it rained and poured for the entire time we were there, I cannot complain since we were in the rainforest and we did visit during green season. I could not have chosen a better place to spend 2 very rainy days. Since it did... More

Stay here for 2 nights , nice hotel. Cleaned and we'll Keats. Very large rooms. Friendly staff and reasonably priced. Highly recommend the horseback riding, wear bug spray tho. The road in can be a bit tricky in a small car but we had no problem. Very humid climate so if no one has been in your room for a... More

The rooms are fantastic. They're spacious bungalows, with a nice outdoors shower, average but good beds, nice terrace and an airco. The pool was also good, with three hot tubs on the side. But the atmosphere just wasn't right. The service was friendly but lacked efficiency. There was some very annoying '50 - '80 music on the background at all... More

My cousin and I stayed at the resort for 4 days, and were treated like royalty the entire time. The staff was amazingly kind and hospitable, always helpful. The hot stone massage was decadent, and the food was very good. The room was as even nicer than the pictures on the website, absolutely beautiful and relaxing! Since the room wasn't... More

We had quite some rain, so we were lucky to have a 4 wheel drive :-) The service was awesome and the hot jacuzzi made the day perfect. Note: remember to take Moscito spray with you I also recommend the boat safari. Was a highlight. still you can go there with your own car and get the trip cheaper. the... More

This resort is one of nature's beauties. It is tucked away in the rainforest and away from any and all outside noises/distractions. The spa/massage was amazing and the staff were incredibly nice. They were always waiting on us hand and foot. The rooms were all private and gorgeous. Outdoor shower and beautiful wood throughout the suite.The only negative we could... More

My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica for 6 nights, and spent 3 nights at this hotel. It was definitely the right amount of time to spend here. It's pretty remote, so you wouldn't want to have it be the hub of your trip, but it was just such a magical place, you definitely want to leave enough time... More

Our family recently spent four nights in this beautiful hotel in the heart of the Costa Rican Rainforest! The rooms were incredibly spacious, well-appointed and clean. We loved our outdoor shower and the total privacy of the jungle surrounding us. All of the bartenders and waiters provided excellent service, and we were very pleased with not only the food selection,... More
