My husband, 12 year old son and I stayed at the Celeste Mountain Lodge for 4 days. It was the high point of our trip, and really, our year. Joel (the Innkeeper) is a thoughtful host who runs a beautiful retreat. The gourmet food was outstanding, and he even worked to create unique meals to suit our vegetarian family members.... More

This was at first a little out of our price range, but after we learned that all the meals were included it turned out to be very reasonable. Once we stepped foot inside we were instantly impressed.... More

We loved the open, modern architecture of the lodge and its rooms. The view over the close wooded mountains is outstanding! We experienced a guided walk to the breathtaking Rio Celeste... More

We did not do our research before hand and just picked this on a whim, and I am so grateful that we did! The road to get up to the lodge is not the best, but once you get to the lodge it is incredible! The room we stayed in was on the corner and had windows on both sides... More

The Celeste Mountain Lodge was included on a birding trip I took and I was very impressed with the facilities. The dining area was impressive with beautiful views and an open design that was comfortable in all weather. The food was wonderful creative and attractively served. We walked the well designed and maintained trails in the forest across the street... More

It was a surprise to me and didn't know where I was ending up until I walked it...and how enchanting was it! First, Joel Welcomes you right as you park and makes you really feel comfortable - just as if you were visiting and old friend! You set your eyes on the building and that's it...your eyes are in love!... More

This place is wonderful, eco friendly with sustainable architecture and very nice decoration. Its location is amazing near the Tenorio Volcano National Park and the Celeste River. The staff and owner are very kind and friendly always being aware of our stay (they speak English, Spanish and French too). Food was very good prepared with local vegetables, cooked as bistro-gourmet... More
