We decided to do the Rio Celeste hike before we checked into the hotel. This was a beautiful hotel to stay at. They greeted us with a fresh drink and towels to clean our hands which was greatly needed. Unfortunately, we were only able to stay here for one night but the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very nice and clean. It's a very remote place and that's the main attraction. Getting there was pretty tricky. We came from the side that has the bridge that was meant only for walking. We were lucky enough to stop at an info center for Rio Celeste and the man working there told us we had to leave our car at another cabina before the bridge and carry our luggage and walk across to the Hideaway. What disappointed me is that this hotel acts pretty fancy but they couldn't leave a sign on the bridge saying cars can't go through it? Or not even giving us a heads up when we booked to let us know that there were two ways of getting there and one was not recommended? The hotel staff were very nice though and came to help us carry our luggage which we really appreciated. Another thing I didn't like about the hotel was their food. The portions were pretty small and it was fairly overpriced. All the food seemed precooked and not very fresh anyways. The hotel is pretty pricey and we were shocked when we got our laundry done that they charged us per item!! Per sock too! That just goes to show that they are pretty cheap and for how much we have to pay a night, laundry service should be free. Otherwise beautiful hotel and great staff.
