After long trek to the amazing Rio Celeste and its waterfall we arrived at his haven of peace and tranquillity. We were greated by refreshing mint infused cold towels and a delicious cocktail as Felix checked us in with the typical Costa Rican warmth and hospitality. The lodge we stayed in (number 17 of 26) was amazing, spacious clean, tastefully furnished with a veranda which faced the rainforest at just above ground level so we could watch the wildlife - including a cute white faced coati who ...

The hotel was comfortable, clean, lush grounds. Felt like staying in a little piece of paradise. Close to national park. Fun to swim in the river nearby. Fantastic pool. Food was good although as expensive as any resort in Hawaii.

This place is FANTASTIC. My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights so we could hike the Rio Celeste (beautiful!!) and visit Arenal. The staff is super helpful and over the top courteous. It's almost a little freaky how good the service is at this hotel. The rooms are very nice and clean. They are all bungalos which is a very nice touch. Our room had a porch that opened up into the forest where we watched for monkeys (yes, they are there!). It also had a cool outdoor shower (and an indoor o... Read more

This is our first , hopefully not the last , trip to COSTA RICA. We started in the QUARANCASTE region . By staying in the RIO CELESTE than moving to the LOS PINOS and , finally , finishing our adventure in the BOSQUE DEL MAR. HOT and HUMID but we loved every minute of it. We stayed with the best in laws anyone could hope for. We tried so many different things that we literally fell in bed by 900pm each nite. The nite trip into the jungle was really neat. We hiked the mountains by day and the ... Read more

Getting to the Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel was an adventure, but once we arrived, we were enchanted. We received a green-season discount of 50% and took one of their suites, with polished mahogany furniture and floors, an outdoor garden shower, and a private balcony in the jungle. We took advantage of the guided tour of Rio Celeste and the spa treatments, as well as the pool and restaurant. The resort was quiet and a little understaffed, which meant that one bartender was trying to cover the lo... Read more

Had a wonderful stay at Rio Celeste, this hotel knows what customer service means and makes everyone feel welcome. The location is less than a mile from the Tenorio national park, and they have their own small hiking train on the premise which is really the cherry on top. You are required to drive through a dirt road to get to this place, but well worth it. Will def be coming back, one of my favorite spots in all of Costa Rica!!!

This hotel is worth all of the bumps once you arrive!! The drive to get here is one of the bumpiest we've ever experienced. The setting is gorgeous, the bungalows are huge and comfy. Nice, plentiful included breakfast. Dinner was good, too. Staff are very nice and accommodating. We hiked to the Rio Celeste entrance from the hotel. FYI, If it's been raining, the trail within the park will be very muddy. Don't miss the hotels' trek on property....easy to do on your own, is quiet and not crowde... Read more

Beautiful lobby, grounds, and room. Cannot say enough about the atmosphere. They have a path to Rio Celeste that is very convenient. Only complaint is that the food was very disappointing. It was quite expensive for CR prices. Our dinner was $140 and the only things that tasted good were the beer and the coffee. The fish was not fresh (I mean VERY not fresh), and the steak was completely charred (we requested medium). I am hopeful that the poor food quality is due to our being there during... Read more

Well if you made it here safely then kudos. The road coming in makes you question the area, but we can tell you it's worth the hassle! The room was clean and the bathroom was really beautiful and big. We had a giant tub in our room and an outdoor shower which was amazing. One of our favourite things about our room was the walk out balcony with views of the rainforest. The hotel staff said that sometimes monkeys will come right to the porch which we were excited about. If you came here for the Ri... Read more

Where do I start?... The road that leads to this hotel is a complete disaster! to say the least, but I will admit that it lends itself to the Costa Rican nature experience. My strongest suggestion to anyone visiting any part of Costa Rica is "rent a 4x4 vehicle" and if you pick a SUV make sure it has a diesel engine as diesel is much better on gas and cheaper in Costa Rica. I could not imagine driving to this hotel without my Toyota Prado rental from Budget, which gave me a 6 day rental for $193... Read more

After an interesting drive, we arrived! We were staying in Guanacaste at an all-inclusive resort and decided to stay here one night for its location. I stumbled upon the hotel on Google and it was the best decision of our trip! As others have mentioned, the roads getting to the hotel are certainly not something we were used to, but that made for a fun adventure (and seeing some great views)! I would certainly advise you to use a vehicle with 4x4 to get there. Upon arrival, the gentleman at t... Read more

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed our experience. The rooms are huge with an amazing outdoor shower. The pool area is beautiful. I recommend walking down the path to the river - it is really lovely down there. We did the hike to the waterfall and were lucky that the rain stayed away so that the river was bright blue. The food is pricey but is well-prepared. As other reviewers have noted, the road in from Bijagua is really rough - you need to allow at least 1/2 hour to get to... Read more
