Best all-around resort in Costa Rica!
Most resorts we have experienced in country, have the benefit of Costa Rica’s rich and verdant environment. Only Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel accomplished the blending of natural surroundings, passionate service, and exquisite meal offerings. Not only did we enjoy the flavorful breakfast offerings, but we were able to watch Toucans and other colorful birds feed within arm’s reach. Each of the vegetarian meal offerings were tastefully presented and full of flavor. A romantic tenor graced the evening meal with a song of our choice. Waiter, Gustavo, took time to memorize each of our names. Room service turned down our room each day. The pool was clean and inviting. Walking the paths between villas was a rainforest adventure; the greenery embracing us with verdant arms. We are enchanted and will return soon.2022-01-31

Serene, peaceful and close to adventures!
The hotel is located in the beautiful rainforest and steps away from private trails to lush trails. The rooms were spectacular, very clean with comfortable beds. The staff at this place made all the difference. They spoke immaculate Spanish and English which was helpful for me as I am non-Spanish-speaking.I would recommend the Rio Celeste Hideaway to anyone who is seeking gorgeous accommodations with great stuff, that is extremely close to the Rio Celeste waterfall!2022-05-06
Absolute luxury hotel located in the jungle
Absolute luxury hotel located in the jungle. The villas are equipped to a high standard, are huge and offer a beautiful view of the jungle. There is a hotel trail to the Rio Celeste and night walks are offered. The pool area with bar by the pool is also great. The restaurant serves delicious dinners and great breakfasts at fair prices. The park entrance is less than a 5-minute drive from the hotel.2022-04-24

We’ve already booked a trip to return next year!
It was an incredible stay. We had the very best time at your special hideaway in the rain forest with our four children. The service was outstanding. A very special thanks for Nelson for taking great care of our family with very careful attention to detail. He pointed out wildlife and made sure we learned about all the special places the area had to offer. He took care of us for every meal. We loved the New Years Celebration as well! The concierge, tour guides and all of the servers and staff are so appreciative and knowledgeable of the area. Truly a special experience!

Hôtel, restaurant, personnel au top
Parfait à tout point de vue. Magnifique bungalow immenses au milieu d'un jardin exotique avec de nombreux animaux. Très bon restaurant, belle et grande piscine. Personnel très accueillant. Et une promenade dans la forêt primaire qui vous amène jusqu'à la rivière bleue.
