Hotel Rio Celeste Hideaway

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Gorgeous hotel tucked away in the rainforest. Each room is an individual bungalow, and there's an easy path to the Rio Celeste behind the hotel. Tenorio National Park won't let you swim, but Rio Celeste Hideaway will! Will absolutely be back, we loved our stay here.

What an incredible place, truly a one of a kind. I can't wait to go nack. The only drawback was the dinners, it's was only "fair". It's disappointing to get a $28 steak that's tough and bland. But that would not keep us from going back at all. Just don't go there thinking you'll have a gourmet dinner.

Hotel in the middle of the mountain in touch with nature. Access to light blue river. Amazing food.

We love this place! It does require a 45 minute ride with a 4x4 vehicle (they call it the "Costa Rican Massage"), but once you get there it is incredibly beautiful. The staff welcomed us at the front door with a delicious fruit drink and it just kept getting better from there. They have carved out a little paradise in the middle of the rainforest

Overall fantastic experience, truly in nature with comfort. Fantastic rooms and great food for price. Very secluded so they heavily depend on tours. Drive 5 min from hotel and you find same tours half the price. All tours will require kids to be atleat 8-10. Not much to do with toddlers other the walks in beautiful forest.

Great out of the way location with nice big rooms and great outdoor shower. Rooms are very damp and have mildew growing all over so everything in my bag smelled after we left. Hike was fun and we also did tubing which was great. Would be back if they fix the mildew!

We had a wonderful time at this hotel. We stayed for 5 nights and had diner at the hotel every night and the food was amazing. The only downside was the location, we had to drive at leat 1.5h to get to other locations and the road was very "Costa Rican".
