Poco Cielo My husband and I recently spent six incredible weeks in Costa Rica. Centrally located just outside Atenas in the Central Valley, we chose Poco Cielo as our home base while we explored the country and immersed ourselves in the serene and endless beauty that defines Costa Rica. To our good fortune, Poco Cielo is a perfect microcosm of all... More

Homey cottages, with perfect views of the mountains and surrounding villages. True Canadian hospitality, clean and nicely decorated cottages, friendly staff, all within a half hour of the airport. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Excellent chocolate chip cookies. Gary and Josiane have built a beautiful little resort!

We loved our stay at Poco Cielo. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we were delighted with the accommodations. The cabins and rancho are located so they have magnificent views of Grecia and the Poas volcano. The cabins are very comfortable, clean and spacious and the grounds are lush and beautifully maintained. The area is so tranquil... More

We had a great stay at Poco Cielo. These cabins are exceptionally well-built and ventilated. (No air conditioning is needed in Atenas.) Grounds are well maintained. Pool area is lovely and the ranchero has saddle-topped bar stools! Canadian owners are very helpful (and nice!). A few times during our stay they staged movies at the ranchero in the evening. They...

Everything was just as we wanted it, informal, clean, comfortable, and gorgeous. The owners were out of the country at the time but Douglas and Roberto made us more than welcome... More

We stayed in mid October and we were amazed and delited from day one. The resort is located in a lush, tropical paradise. The owners Gary and Josanne were much more than accommodating, going out of there way to meet our every expectation. Would highly recommend this resort to all, whether first time visitor or seasoned traveler.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our property is set in the mountains of Atenas, overlooking the central valley below. We have 4 private cabins available, two with a kitchen and one queen sized bed, and two cabins with two queen sized beds and small kitchenette. The cabins all have Wi-Fi, 32" LED flat screen TV,DVD player , Cable TV and the rancho has surround sound an iPod dock and once in a while we do a movie on the big screen. All guest have access to the kitchen located in the Rancho pool-side. The "cabinas" are very private and surrounded with tropically manicured gardens and lawns that are frequently visited by toucans and parrots. Sit back and relax in our large Rancho area while you socialize with family, new friends, read a book or listen to your favorite music. There are some wonderful restaurants within walking distance or a short ride to town will provide you with many more restaurants. The grocery store in town is modern with just about everything you will need. Come and stay with us here at Poco Cielo for a little piece of heaven in the beautiful country of Costa Rica. ... more   less
