Perfect breezy beachfront location, unconstructed peaceful area, surrounded by rich nature. What a charming place to spend several days, relax and enjoy doing a lot of fun things in the hood. The rooms are big, clean with comfortable beds, a big refrigerator and a nice porch with chairs and a hammock. Large variety of fruits, pancakes, toasts, yogurt, eggs, cereals... More

I was looking for a comfortable place to stay that was not expensive. The rooms were clean and fresh. Santino helped me with any questions I had and was very helpful. The breakfast in the morning was included and was varied and plentiful. I loved sleeping at night with the rain. And the pool was great, the beach view is... More

Stayed here for one night. We didn't like that there was nothing nearby to do, eat, or anything. Great for people who are just looking to relax and read a book by the pool. Restaurant was not very nice and breakfast was limited. We went to montezuma looking for some more buzz and people.

We rented a house a few properties down from Hotel Celaje for 8 days. On our first day there, other renters told us about Hotel Celaje, their food and lovely pool area. We were thankful for this recommendation, as we went there and found that by ordering drinks or food, the owners welcomed you to use the pool on the... More

We were travelling by car & we were looking for a nice hotel in Cabuya. So, we checked a few hotels/lodges & we finally found this lovely place. The Celaje Hotel has the best value of money in Cabuya for sure! It's a clean place with beautiful bungalows & a big pool. (You need a pool in this area, since... More

We live in Costa Rica and have been to El Celaje many times. We love to spend weekends here with our family as it's quiet, close to the beach AND has a pool and also has great food! My daughter especially loves the fries and lemonade. The staff and management are professional, friendly and help make every stay wonderful. We... More

I have been coming to Cabuya regularly for ten years and have come to know the various businesses quite intimately. Hotel Celaje--with its perfect beachfront location, welcoming staff, meticulously kept pool and wonderfully rustic bungalows--rises above them all. Located just at the edge of the town (if you can call Cabuya a town), the property is serene enough to draw... More

The hotel Celaje is charming. Cabuya is a tranquil escape from the busyness of typical resorts. It is undeveloped and natural. Our two most relaxing days out of the month we spent in Costa Rica were spent at the Celaje, and we wished we had booked in there instead of the busier Montezuma. It was quiet, and the cabins were...

Tucked along the shore in Cabuya, the Hotel Celaje is a wonderful base for explorations in the area. While the Montezuma hotels bustle with activity and noise, Celaje is relaxed, casual, and friendly. We stayed for 4 nights and loved every moment of our time there. Upon our arrival, Marco (the owner) kindly took our young son and showed him... More

We left santa teresa because it was too noisy. The beaches were beautiful, but it was just too much. We found el Celaje and were warmly greated and shown to our lovely treehouse type cabana. The grounds were clean and the large pool was inviting. We watched the colors of the sunset reflect upon the ocean water. Following our beach... More
