Celeste Mountain Lodge, Arenal Volcano Region
Hidden gem provides simple elegance by Rio Celeste
We booked our stay at Celeste Mountain Lodge as a place to crash after hiking Rio Celeste. As such, our expectations were minimal. We could not have been any more pleasantly surprised. Our stay was fantastic and we wished we would have been staying longer. Our group was our family of 4 (2 kids ages 5 and 2.5) and grandparents. (Although Celeste Mountain Lodge was not 'childproof', they were very accomodating to our young boys and we had no issues.) Upon arrival, we were greated by Joel, the owner, who provided us with a personal welcome and brief overview of the property. The personal touch was unexpected, but very pleasant. After checking in, we found the rooms to be plenty big and functional without many extravagances, but also not lacking anything. The architecture, decor and ambiance fit well in their vision. Meals were definitely a highlight of our stay. As a frequent traveler, I've come to have low expectations for hotel food. By contrast, the food at Celeste Mountain Lodge rivaled gourmet meals from 5-star restaurants in the US. They crafted fresh local foods and drinks into gourmet masterpieces. Overall, their vision of responsible tourism coupled with peace and tranquility in a natural and pristine environment was executed flawlessly. Celeste Mountain Lodge is a true gem that provides simple elegance.

Lovely retreat...close to Rio Celeste Falls
This was a lovely find for getting away from it all. Beautiful setting...peaceful and quiet. The owner and staff were very welcoming and kind. This is an eco friendly lodge with an upscale refined ambiance. Excellent meals with a Costa Rican fusion prepared in state of art kitchen and served by respectful staff. This is really a retreat from the hectic city. Beautiful grounds and exotic birds on property. Amazing view of rain forest. Selma was especially kind and helpful. The staff treats you like family.The owner speaks four languages and is gracious and welcoming.We will come back.
