This is a great place to stay. Perfect 5 star. We had a suite with a garden view. 1,000 square foot bungalow with a king bed. Everything about the room excellent. Pool area, restaurant, front desk excellent. Quiet, secluded, totally relaxing. Right up there with the top places we have stayed all over the world. Thanks.

The Hideaway was the first stop on our Costa Rico vacation. This small resort was wonderful to spend quality time with our adult children. Everyone loved the bungalows. We felt like we had the place to ourselves. Meals were very enjoyable. The complimentary full breakfast was very nice. The hikes to swim in the river were very special. Guided tours with Pablo were also spectacular. (Highly recommend touring the park with Pablo as your guide.) Time by the pool & hot tubs was very relaxing. The Spa treatments were very reasonable. The staff was friendly and very helpful with all our needs. We had an issue with our rental car & the staff called for us to take care of it. Can’t say enough good things about this resort.

The beauty, elegance, and lush tropical gardens with trails to explore along the Rio Celeste River, made this my favorite stop on my six-week Costa Rican travel adventure. My 5-night experience at the hotel was so amazing that I wished I could just stay there forever. The hotel employs the most wonderful people and they take customer service to a whole new level of excellence, especially Kenneth, who was incredibly helpful to me and assisted me with whatever needs or questions would arise during my stay. My room was out of this world gorgeous, total luxury. The Night Tour is a must! The pool was stunningly beautiful and long enough for lap swimming. The Katalan Restaurant and poolside snacks & drinks were all scrumptiously delicious. Thank you to everyone and especially Kenneth for the most marvelous and memorable experience.

Everything about this place was first class. From the emails before I even made the reservation to check in and through our stay everything was perfect. The casita was beautiful with a private deck. The grounds were immaculate. The trails were great (both the longer and shorter options) and the nighttime walk was so cool. We loved the pool and had several nice meals at the restaurant. Everybody we encountered was helpful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this place!
