The Volcan Tenorio National Park is one of the most visited parks in Costa Rica and it might have to do with the fact that inside the park is the most beautiful and natural blue river you could ever see. So, we decided to visit this amazing Costa Rican jewel and also check out one of the closest hotels to the park entrance, the Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel.

Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel is a small resort nestle in the same rainforest of the Volcan Tenorio National Park. The property is surrounded by lush nature and amazing animals such as hummingbirds and coatis. The hotel has a great relaxed atmosphere, and offers 26 beautiful casitas (rooms) and top-notch amenities. Want more reasons to come and stay here? Well, you are in luck, here are 5 reasons to stay in this amazing hotel:



Rio Celeste Hideaway hotel offers very spacious casitas all separated from each other by beautiful natural gardens.  We stayed in a single room with forest view and it was incredible. The room offers a four-posted canopy king bed, a very comfortable sitting area with colorful throw pillows, a very useful desk, a huge bathroom with double vanities, a gorgeous shower with stone walls, and the most refreshing and magical outdoor shower surrounded by tropical plants. One of the best parts of this room is the balcony, made out of  all wood is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the beautiful view for hours, it’s also great for relaxation after an exhausting day on a tour or hike.


Kantala Restaurant in the main building is an incredible open-air dining room surrounded by beautiful tropical vegetation and a very relaxing pond filled with Koi. In here you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu offers an international gourmet cuisine, from entrees to main dishes and desserts. You will find dishes with meat, chicken, seafood and pasta.

We had the opportunity to have dinner here, and the food was just delicious, the dishes were delicately put together and decorated with such a good taste that we were blown away.



This hotel makes you feel on a tropical island from the moment you step in.

The main building is all made of dark wood, with plenty of areas to sit and relax. They offer an entertainment area with a pool table and couches to sit and play board games, or just enjoy some TV. The paths to the bungalows are made of grey river stone and are surrounded by the lushest tropical gardens you have ever seen. While you are here you must take advantage of the pool, surrounded by 3 hot tubs and a wet bar, this is the perfect place to enjoy your piñas coladas while working on your tan. At night you can enjoy your after-hour drinks in the cozy Cantina Delirio, located also in the main building.


Friendly and helpful staff is abundant in this hotel. Everyone welcomed us so warmly from the moment we arrived, it felt like we were coming to visit family. The service was exceptional, from the staff at the entrance gate, the receptionist, and our good friend that helped us get our luggage to the room. We also really enjoyed the service from the guys at the restaurant area, they were very attentive and polite. You will definitely feel very welcomed here and taken care of.



This is one of the best parts about Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel, the Volcan Tenorio National Park is right next door, literally!.

We really enjoyed this because it made it very easy to get up in the morning and drive less than 5 min and be the first ones to enter the park, and it's also very convenient that once you are done with the hike, probably all muddy and sweaty, your hotel is super close to take a shower, get refreshed and relax in the pool. 

We really enjoyed our visit to Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel, everything was exceptional.

This hotel made us feel right at home with their friendly staff, and their comfortable rooms gave us an excuse to relax and enjoy nature. If you are planning to visit Rio Celeste, this place is an amazing option to stay and enjoy even more the Volcan Tenorio National Park.

Thank you so much to Rio Celeste Hideaway and all their staff for having us and taking good care of us.
