Playa Cielo is a beautiful and intimate hotel. The cabinas/cabanas are absolutely lovely and styled in a wonderfully natural and beachy manner. Comfortable beds, pillows, towels, useful small kitchen, cozy outdoor patio area with dining table and chairs as well as two lovely hammocks, made our stay all the more peaceful. The very short walk across the property to the... More

First and foremost the hospitality at Playa Cielo goes way beyond good service. You literally become part of the extended family from the moment you roll in. When Shlomi and Adele described the amount of care, time, and detail they took when creating Playa Cielo you can feel it is not just a place to stay, but a real escape... More

We just came back from spending two weeks at this amazing property. We had never been to Costa Rica before and were nervous about renting a place unseen. Any fears we had were immediately alleviated after our first contact with the owners. They responded fast and were extremely helpful. They went out of their way to make sure all of... More

We had the pleasure of staying with Sol and Adele over valentines day this year and we were absolutely floored with playa cielo. We know by the pictures that it would be nice but we had no idea it would be so perfect. The owners have designed a stunning property that has spared no expense or amenity. We looked at... More

Playa Cielo is better than the website depicts. The photos cannot do justice to these beautiful villas and grounds. The villas are well set back from the dusty road with a security gate. They are clean, romantic, well appointed and there's daily maid service. The open air shower is huge and pretty cool, with no unwanted bugs or critters coming... More

I stayed here over the new year period just after the hotel opened. It is a truly lovely place to stay and as I write this 1 month later, I'd love to be back there! It is perfect for a couple or a small family who want a luxurious beachfront place to get away from it all. Great surfing out... More

We stayed at Playa Cielo for 2 weeks this January and it was an absolute pleasure. We have been visiting Costa Rica for 7 years and can easily say that this was the best bungalow hotel we have stayed in. At the moment there are only 3 bungalows , each luxuriously appointed and very private and what a great location.... More

We were lucky enough to stumble upon Playa Cielo while going to every hotel and trying to find a room along the beachfront. The driveway was innocuous, but we decided to see what was there. It turned out to be one of the best decisions of our vacation. The property was gorgeous and had immaculately maintained grounds that surrounded it.... More
