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

This place is better than what we expected. Well the only reason I didn't rate the location excellent is because the drive up to the hotel is a bit rough. After the drive up, you arrive at a true BEAUTIFUL hideaway! The staff was attentive from the 1st to last minute of checkout. If you land in SJO I recommend... More

Spent the weekend up at Río Celeste Hideaway looking for a relaxing escape from the city. Unfortunately we picked a bad weekend as there was a large group of families and kids there that had swarmed the main restaurant and pool area - making it a little difficult to disconnect as we had planned. Not exactly the hotels fault though... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. Just at the beginning of the rainy season, this place was so very nice. The rooms are little houses. VERY highend amenities and as tropical as you can get without living in the jungle... You need to be prepared for the ride there. It's 12K off the main road and if it's raining,... More

Walking paths through jungle gardens to every bungalow! This hotel was a breath of fresh air! We loved the area. Fewer tourists and the nicest Costa Rican locals. The bartender invited my husband and friends I was traveling with to the local rodeo in Katira. What an experience! He was so sweet, even introduced us to his family! The rooms... More

This hotel is incredible, especially considering the price. My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights when we first arrived in Costa Rica and were blown away by the hotel's beauty. Though the road to get there is rough if you come from Bijuaga (TIP: If you're coming from the south or west, drive the extra distance to Upala!... More

We can't recommend this hotel enough- it was truly a mix of authenticity, comfort, and beauty. The grounds are so well maintained. Don't miss the walk to the river - and make sure you swim when you get there - it's unbelievable.

We spent 1 night at this hotel and I wish it could have been more! The hotel room was amazing with a great balcony that has a view to the forest. It is truly stricking. The bathroom is very pretty and spacious, I particularly liked the fact that there is an outdoor shower so you can choose where to take... More

I will summaries by saying that you need to visit this hotel! It is set in an incredible location and the fact that it has a walk down to the river with swimming facilities is just out of this world! The hotel pool and ground is beautiful and the fact that the room look onto the rainforest is just incredible!... More

The hotel is a true hideaway.It's off the key tourist tracks, requires either a SUV or a good driver willing to take a sedan up the gravel road. The hotel is 1500m from the entrance to the great Rio Celeste River National Park and even has it's own jungle path curved out to reach the river. BTW, there is a... More
