Wow! What a great family adventure. Excellent service and beautiful surroundings the food was excellent. Rustic accomodations and home cooked food. The guide was great and the owner, Mario couldn't have been nicer. I totally recommend!

I hate to be the first person to leave a three-star review of this place, but our experience here was just OK. Other reviewers have focused on the natural beauty of the surrounding area, the “authenticity” of the experience, the abundance of food, and Mario’s hospitality. Let me give you my take on each of those in turn. I will... More

We spent 3 days over there with our family and friends from costa rica. The place is very nice, clean and the food was delicious. We probably gained a couple of Pounds.!! The trip to RIO CELESTE was the most amazing trip, the guide was very nice and he had knowledge of the place. Fireplace at la POSADA, was awesome,... More

This was a beautiful location that truly demonstrated the eco-tourism in Costa Rica. The food and the staff is excellent. The Tenorio Volcano area is gorgeous. I really recommend the horse rides in the posada is fun and you can really appreciate the beauty of the area. "Pura Vida"

Mario, chico and the rest of the staff made us feel very welcome and involved in the beautiful, natural surroundings of the Tenorio Volcano area. Beautiful mix of being outdoors while still sheltered with a lovely seating area by the fireplace. Fresh, local food made 3 times a day as we ate family style. Did not feel like tourism.

Authentic, lovely, welcoming – the Posada Ceilo Roto was an amazing experience. We arrived her quite by accident due to a mistake with our other reservation. After a very rough road which we drove in the pouring rain, we arrived at the lovely open house and were seated for a warm lunch of tilapia, rice, beans, salad and tamarind juice.... More

This was a beautiful location that truly demonstrated the pura vida lifestyle. The grounds were beautiful, including a cascading river, rolling hills, a pond with a boat, and horses. The rooms were cute and clean, and the food was more than delicious! It was cooked on a wood stove, and our plates were piled high with traditional Costa Rican food,... More

We spent two nights at Cielo Roto and the owner Mario must have asked a thousand times if we were having a good time. He truly wanted to make our stay special. We stayed in the main lodge where the reception, kitchen, dining, and socializing areas are located. It felt like our own home and we had a great time.... More

A friend and I had a lovely weekend at Mario's place. He is a very kind and generous host, and the accommodations, while rustic, were very comfortable and enjoyable. We sat on the deck in the rocking chairs overlooking the trout pond and gardens, with a nice bottle of wine before dinner.... very tranquil and relaxing. This is a gorgeous... More

We spent two nights at the posada. The site is in a nice little valley where 14 horses are kept. The horses are quiet and secure even for children. Mario and Andre organized a ride for us and we were very pleased. We felt secure even if we had no prior experience in horse riding. There is poultry free on... More
