Excellent Hospitality! The owners came to Costa Rica on vacation, fell in love w/ the area and decided to purchase & run this place. They are wonderful people who are very welcoming and speak English, Spanish & Dutch. Great Food! They have a wide variety to choose from on their menu, as well as a continental breakfast! All the food...

Wow, this place is cool. Its like the raw Costa Rica from years ago. Clean cabinas and uniquely decorated. (Down side: dark, no mosquito net in ours). Beach is not swimmable at times, but get a kayak and have fun. The island with the cemetery is so worth it. Take hammocks and have the island to yourself. The restaurant at...

Super relaxing. Beautiful cabins, Beautiful grounds. Great food. What more do you want. This is also a bit of the beaten track just after you leave all the tourist noise behind. Added fun for us was that the owners turned out to be Dutch, as we are formerly from the Netherlands we really liked that. The nearby park is a...

My husband and I needed to relax so decided to spend our 3 week holiday here at the Celaje in Cabuya, a small sleepy fishing village in Costa Rica. Cabuya is a 15 minute bus ride (7 kilometres) from Montezua which has a large variety of activities, shopping, restaurants and sand beaches. First I will start with what we loved,...

We loved the grounds. We loved the pool (although it needs a thorough cleaning-the water is not clear, algae). We loved the breakfast, it was excellent. The bungalows were cute and private. We liked the hammock, swinging chair and outdoor table and clothesline. We liked the location - easy access to Montezuma and Mal Pais/Santa Teresa area. The bungalows were...

We stayed 3 night at Celaje and really enjoyes it. The bungalows are spacious but would need some renovation, the electrical hot shower is a bit dangerous, I got a few electric shocks...the mosquito nets have some holes. The garden is really pretty and the beach is right there. Celaje is a bit away from Montezuma or other restaurants but...

We stayed an extra (third) night because there is a lot to like here. The cottages are fairly basic but we loved falling asleep hearing the roaring surf nearby (plus an occasional howler monkey). The beach is rocky but beautiful and there is a nice sandy beach within walking distance along the Ocean, Cabo Blanco is nearby and there is...

I was expecting more from this place based on all the reviews. The location is nice and the bungalows are well placed amongst the trees through which you can see the ocean. The rooms are dark and a bit dingy and the bathroom is small with old fixtures. The swimming pool is nice and a definite bonus as you can't...

Wow, what a place. Perfect in every way. I am hesitant to right a good review because I sort of want to keep it a secret. I should say this is just your average place in Costa Rica, but I would be lying. Food, amazing. Atmosphere, amazing. Wow. Wow. Wow. Marco will take care of you. Its been a year...
