I stayed at Poco Cielo Resort for 1 week in late January / early February 2016 and found the accommodations to be very nice. Gary & Josanne were very helpful not only with everything involving the resort, but also, with helping me get the most out of my stay. I was very attracted to this location when I noticed online...

Poco cielo ( a little piece of heaven) is totally an appropriate name for this beautiful little resort. Located just up the road from the little town of Atenas (not Too far from San Jose) It is up in the mountains just enough to cool it off a bit. The owners Gary and Josanna are spectacular hosts and their place... More

I stayed here for four nights while traveling alone to visit my son in Atenas. Gary and Josana could not have been more accommodating. Gary arranged airport transportation and a car for me in Atenas. The property is truly heavenly. Darling cabins with comfortable beds. Very clean and a great location.

Friendly, kind, very accommodating hosts. Beautiful landscaping, gorgeous pool/rancho. Light, airy, comfortable cabins. Great value for a central base to visit many CR attractions. First consideration in CR.

Poco Cielo is hands down the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. The cabina was immaculate, the grounds are pristine, the views more than breathtaking and Gary, the owner, is the friendliest host I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He was very accommodating and extremely informative with regards to the area and attractions. I would recommend Poco... More

My husband and I were booked to spend 5 nights at Poco Cielo but our plans changed and we arrived 2 days early. We didn't know if we would be able to stay but Gary was able to re-arrange some things so we could check in early. The rooms were very clean and well maintained as were the grounds and... More

My husband and I spent 4 relaxing weeks in Cost Rica in January. We stayed the entire time at Poco Cielo. This was our base and from there we were able to do day trips and explore the surrounding areas. The grounds were well kept and the view from our casita was great. We loved sitting in the two highback... More

The Poco Cielo resort is well laid out with the casitas surrounded by plants to create privacy and little pathways to the pool and ranchero area with a great view of the valley. Some casitas have a full kitchen, others a kitchenette with a full kitchen available in the ranchero. Gary the owner is super friendly and makes sure you... More

We stayed at Poco Cielo in October and December of 2014. We have visited Atenas several times and Poco Cielo became our favorite accommodation. The cabins are exceptionally clean, attractive, and airy. The grounds are beautiful and inviting. Gary and Josanne and the staff balance helpfulness and privacy exceptionally well. It is a short ride to downtown and there are... More
