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

We went here on a day trip to rio Celeste and had dinner here. You can either stay in the hotel or just join for dining. Personally I was glad we didn't spend the night since there is nothing close by if you get bored. The place was beautiful and had coy fish and very good food! I highly recommend... More

I have traveled to several exotic locations, but I must say that this may be my favorite hotel ever. Traveling about 5 km along one of the worst roads in Costa Rica, one might think there can't possible be a remarkable hotel at the end. But let me tell you, Rio Celeste Hideaway is like a Garden of Eden in... More

Wow! This hotel is what dreams are made of. We arrived at the Liberia airport and rented a car. The drive from the airport to the hotel was amazing! Yes, we encountered the crazy roads everyone wrote about and yes they are crazy but this is what made the trip such an adventure. The service at this hotel was superb... More

We have stayed t this hotel with 3 kids and the grand parents. Its comfortable, very well maintained grounds, spacious rooms. Amidst the lush nature of Costa Rica. Its a cloud forest climate so be prepared for high humidity - our bed linens were humid on arrival, do not panic, just get used to a different environment. The shower under... More

My wife and I just returned from our second visit to the Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel and our experience was fabulous. The service we received throughout our stay was outstanding. Our meals were delicious and the portion size was just right. The room was beautiful and offered privacy. All the facilities and common areas were clean and well maintained. We... More

The overall experience was very good. I would recommend that you fly into LIR airport instead of SJO as it is a FOUR HOUR, very rough drive. The hotel arranged for transportation to pick us up (for $200). Our driver Eddie was very nice and even stopped to show us a sloth in a tree on the way. Once we... More

Before I write about the other aspects of this amazing hotel, let me just say that the service is the highlight. It is hard to quite describe just how amazing they are in general terms, so maybe a few examples: 1- I had a flat tire. They noticed it before I did, called me about it, and offered to send... More
