My family and I recently spent four nights at Playa Cielo in March and can not say enough about this hotel. We loved having our own bungalow, which was stylish and well appointed with a comfortable bed, little kitchen, beautiful outdoor bathroom and day bed and trundle for our two kids. The outdoor patio was the perfect place to sit... More

For our 3rd trip to Santa Teresa, we finally had the pleasure of staying at Playa Cielo. It is far and away the best accomodation - after having stayed at 4 other high end properties in the area during past trips, this is our favorite. The casitas are fully equipped with all of the luxuries we wanted, while maintaining the... More

Playa Cielo is a beautiful property in an incomparable location. The rooms were clean, cool, and airy. The grounds are lush and beautiful. We spent our days on the beach, afternoons by the pool, evenings watching the sunset, and slept to the sound of waves. Our children made friends, chased hermit crabs, played and swam. After only four days we... More

My husband, teen-aged sons and I were so fortunate to have stayed at PC from Jan. 3, 2014 to Jan. 8th. The accommodations are luxurious. I was very impressed with the attention to detail in the design of the villas. We were lucky to have stayed in both the one bedroom and the two bedroom villa. We preferred the one... More

I just got back from Costa Rica TODAY and I wanted to say how amazing Playa Cielo was. We stayed for 5 nights. Eti, the property manager, was amazing! She scheduled activities for us to do every day and always made sure we were happy. (She even gave us her fan from her desk when it got too hot one... More

If you want to be on the beach and steps away from the main street- this is the only place to stay. Luxurious rooms and beds and kind attentive employees. I have stayed at other hotels in the area and trust me- this is the only hotel I would recommend to anyone. Beautiful rooms and you get the privacy you... More

I recently stayed here with my wife and 3 and 4 year old sons and had a great time. We stayed in the large 2 bedroom house which was the perfect size for a family and the staff was great. The beach out front and pool were amazing and we will definitely be back.

We stayed at Playa Cielo during last year for the Thanksgiving weekend. It was a collection of beautifully secluded private luxury beachfront villas each with an individual style which made it feel like a home from home. The hosts (Adele and Sol) were very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed daily Boogie boarding with fantastic surf and loved spending time on... More

Beautifully secluded on the beach, yet the most conveniently located in walking distance to local attractions, Playa Cielo is not only the nicest place to stay (as close to a Relais Chateaux as you can get in Santa Teresa), it has an amazing restaurant, (Habanero), overlooking the ocean. The food is incredible with to-die-for dishes you can't get at home!... More
