Super Hotel. Die Anfahrt ist eine Katastrophe

Posted Feb 8, 2015
Cons: Zufahrtsstraßen und mehr Licht.
Location: Nationalpark
Das Hotel ist sehr schön. Die Mitarbeiter sind super freundlich. Es gibt 2 negative Punkte: Die Anfahrt ist eine Zumutung und eine Quälerei für jedes Auto inclusive der Insassen. Die Lichtverhältnisse in den Zimmern und im Restaurant sind sehr schlecht. Ein wenig mehr Licht wäre schön gewesen.

Cons: They could put heaters in the rooms and dining area. It got pretty chilly in the evenings and mornings.
Location: You can easily hike to the Rio Celeste waterfall from the hotel. Lots of bird and wildlife watching.
This place is incredible. After driving 10+ km along dirt roads through the jungle, you get to this absolutely beautiful hotel with everything you could want.

Voellig verschimmeltes Luxushotel

Posted Jan 30, 2015
Pros: Ausstattung und Umgebung
Cons: Den Schimmel in den Haeusern bekaempfen
Location: Ganz in der Naehe des Nationalparks Tenorio
DAS Hotel hat an Ausstattung alles was man sich wuenschen kann, sehr schoene Haeuser, graeumig und mit allem versehen was man so benoetigt. Personal sehr freundlich, Umgebung schoen etc., ... leider sind die Haeuser innen total verschimmelt, man bekommt kaum Luft vor lauter Sporen, ein Frosch hat sich in unserem Haus sehr wohl gefuehlt. Wir sind nach einer Nacht gefluechtet, obwohl die zweite schon bezahlt war, nicht auszuhalten, echt sehr schade.

Secluded luxury and peacefulness.

Posted Jan 24, 2015
Pros: The grounds, location and seclusion.
Cons: Can they control the weather?
Location: Hiking the Rio Celeste river and the Tenorio volcano.
The staff at the Rio Celeste Hideaway was excellent and the Rio Celeste Hideaway exceeded my expectations. Loved the rooms and the outdoor shower. The separated rooms reminded me of the Crater Lodge and Ngorogoro crater lodge in Africa.

The pool was great and the staff very nice. The breakfast was good. I would recommend 2 days tops for a stay.

Awesome place

Just be ready for the rough road. A lot of car rental companies rent small sedan style 4x4 that have smaller street tires. These will get you through (it's what we had) but get something with better tires if you can.

Remote Paradise

Posted Nov 27, 2014
After traveling hours from most tourist, this hotel provides the remote paradise that I had been seeking in Costa Rica. Incredibly decorated bungalows provide an escape into unspoiled Costa Rican rain forest. The 24 individual bungalows provide privacy and ensure that you never feel crowded like other properties. The walk down to the Rio Celeste River provides an opportunity to swim in the cool refreshing blue waters. The restaurant, pool, hot tubs, reception area, and bar leave little to be desired. 5 stars from this frequent traveler!

Great HIDEAWAY, if you want to be far.

Posted Nov 18, 2014
Pros: The people, the food and the swimming pool are great. The excursions are fantastic, make sure you go TUBBING!!!
Cons: There are no sports channels in the TV. Maybe you dont go there to watch TV, but you would love to see the results at night. No internet in the rooms
Location: The excursions are fantastic, make sure you go TUBBING!!! But everything else is 2hrs drive from there.
The hotel is great and the people are amazing. However, we booked a hotel in the "Arenal" area but this is 130 miles away from Fortuna!! The hotel is 11kms inside a dirt road that REQUIRES a 4x4 car or truck. Once there, you will enjoy the place, if you like to be lost in the middle of no-where. The excursions are fantastic, make sure you go TUBBING!!!
