Reviewed April 1, 2014

I traveled to Costa Rica for a yoga retreat and found paradise at Vista Celestial. When you search for images of Costa Bellena, you see pictures of the "Whale's Tail" and the stunning coast. This is YOUR view at Vista Celestial. The location is breath-taking, the villas are modern, warm, private and beautiful. Konrad and Jennifer have achieved a perfect balance of providing luxury in the middle of the jungle. I recommend without hesitation and cannot wait to return. -MMK

As a seasoned traveler its hard to get me excited these days, and the trip to Vista Celestial tucked away in the jungle with killer views of the Pacific overlooking the whales tale, amazing food, luxury in the wild, I can tell you memories were made! The villas are a perfect home away from home with space and luxury surrounded by the toucans, monkeys, and the sounds of nature. We were spoiled by our hosts Jen and Konrad (with their ridiculously perfect son Alexen). This wasn't just a hotel it was personal, and they made sure we had the best experience while we were there and no details went unnoticed. This is what you dream of when you travel something new, an adventure, relaxation, great food, to be pampered and there is no way I won't be back! If you want to really discover Costa Rica and all it has to offer, this is the place to be. It's been hard to get back to work ever since…..I have to be honest.

I went to Costa Rica with a group of 12 people to stay at Villa Celestial, explore, enjoy any number of activities, practice yoga, and yes, relax.

The facility is modern and clean and new -- dramatic, beautiful, no detail missed... Amazing views everywhere...

Our hosts, Jennifer and Konrad were more than attentive and knowledgeable. They were completely devoted to our having a good time... and we did. The foods were delicious, too...

Be sure and ask about 'breakfast cookies' as we called them...

Room Tip: I didn't really use room service or a fitness center, so I can not comment. I stayed in Villa P...

This mountaintop five-villa resort nestled in the jungle is a blissful place to experience Costa Rica. Enjoy delicious, healthy food and perfectly blended cocktails by the infinity pool as you watch the sun sink into the Pacific. Available excursions include surfing, white-water rafting, horseback riding and snorkeling.

The view of the "whale's tale" is breathtaking! Both the pool/bar area and the villas are beautifully designed with a view of jungle or ocean at every turn. The food was fantastic, something different and delicious every night! The couple who owns the place is so hospitable and friendly. Overall, probably the most amazing place I have ever stayed!
