We spent 3 nights in peaceful serenity, in the midst of beautiful flowers and birds with wonderful accommodations. The room was very nice, well decorated with beautiful wood floors. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the early mornings sipping coffee and listening to the Howler Monkeys above us in the trees. The restaurant was very spacious, opened up to the beautiful fauna surrounding it, and the food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the breakfasts. The swimming pool and the Jacuzzis wer...

We stayed just one night in December. Sadly it rained the entire time so we didn't get to enjoy the hotel as much as we could've given how beautiful it was. We did do the hike to Rio Celeste but due to the rain is was more grey than blue but nothing anyone could have done about that. I echo every review that complains about the damp smell and dampness in the rooms. The hotel could easily save this by turning on the function on the A/C units that allow them to dehumidify rather than just cool. Ev... Read more

We spent three lovely nights at Rio Celeste Hideaway and it exceeded all expectations. Our room was gorgeous. Huge, very clean, very comfortable bed, Big deck with lounge chairs, massive bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, lots and lots of closet room and space for suitcases. The staff at the hotel were extremely gracious - all of them. We had exceptional service from the check in staff to the restaurant servers to the launderers. Everyone was warm and friendly and very eager to ensure ... Read more

This is the kind of place I was looking for when I thought of Costa Rica: In the middle of nature, but very well cared-for. We arrived in our own rental car, but we were glad we'd rented a sturdy vehicle as the roads are rough! I understand that they offer shuttles from the airport, but this was part of a larger road trip around the country for us. We only stayed for two nights, but we found that to be plenty of time. Staff helped us book our Tenorio rafting excursion, and guided hike of Rio Cel... Read more

We visited the Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel on our third trip to Costa Rica. It was posh, relative to most of the places we have stayed. Each guest room is a separate building with huge bedrooms with a sitting area. The four-poster king bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was gigantic and had a jetted tub. There was ample space to put away our luggage, including a large closet with a small safe. There was a deck on the front of our unit that was very comfortable and semi private. In the back, t...

This hotel really is a hidden gem, like another reviewer said. We stayed here last week during Hurricane Otto - and despite the terrible weather (we weren't able to take advantage of any tours and we lost power and plumbing due to the storm), the staff took great care of us during our stay. The location is off the beaten path, so give yourself time to get here as the roads (like many in Costa Rica) are rough on the way up. 4WD is essential as well. But once you're at the hotel, it is a PERFECT ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights/ three days at Rio Celeste. The hotel is small and friendly with good facilities in a stunning location a short walk from the magnificent blue Rion Celeste. We enjoyed our room (26) and made good use of the pool and the 3 hot tubs of different temperatures. The night walk with Anderson was great...saw two snakes...only small...and lots of interesting nocturnal creatures. We also,used the hotel,as a base for visiting Cano Negro reserve which is mind blowing if... Read more

The room is very spacious. Loved the seat facing the balcony where monkeys would occasionally come visit (make sure you have the door locked though). There is a nice walk path from the hotel that would lead you to downstream of Rio Celest (the blue river that run off the water fall) where you can actually have a dip in since it is outside of the national park area. The receptionist were super helpful in making sure we know this. The Tenorio Volcano National Parkis only opens from 8am - 2pm, this... Read more
