Playa Cielo was simply amazing! It’s like having your own beach house for a few days (or however long you are lucky to stay!) and it’s a refreshing break from the typical hotel. It’s very welcoming and private, perfect to fully enjoy the freedom of beach living with the comforts of home. The property is a wonderful complement to the... More

I have traveled all over the world and stayed in the most luxurious resorts both abroad and in the United States. I have to say that Playa Cielo is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. You are on the beach steps away from the ocean. The views are magnificent. You can literally see the ocean...

We just got back from a 5 night stay at Playa Cielo and it was just what we were looking for. The villa was very large and comfortable and had a small kitchen. The patio was fantastic - couch, 2 hammocks, and a dining table... perfect! It was a nice spot to get out of the hot sun and do... More

This place is amazing! My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was paradise! The place is new, very clean and really beautiful. Best of all it's located right on the beach. You literally walk out your bungalow door and you can see the ocean. Check it out if you have the chance - you will NOT... More

We fell in love with the small town of Santa Teresa, as we did with Playa Cielo. We were immediately welcomed by the staff and shown the property. It was gorgeous and the aroma of lavender permeated the air. We were lucky that there was one bungalow open that day. So we took it! We were hidden away safely among... More

Without an itinerary, reservation or plan, I was looking for a place to spend a few nights. Upon entering the property, I was warmly greeted and shown the accommodations. I need not look any further; paradise found! My single room bungalow was spacious, elegant and luxurious. I was delighted with the thoughtful, eco-conscious design and local materials used. From the... More

While looking for a place to stay in Santa Teresa, we decided to check out Playa Cielo. After seeing what was available around the area, we weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised when we saw inside one of the bungalows. It has high ceilings and was clean & nicely furnished with an American touch. It has a comfortable king... More

Loved the accommodations. Very comfortable and clean with excellent on-beach location. Beach is not great for swimming, but very beautiful. Adele (owner) was very helpful in recommending and setting up activities. The main part of Santa Teresa was a bit of a walk, but a market was in short walking distance.

We stayed with our 3 young children and had a great time. I believe it is the best place in Santa Teresa. The casita was very nice, the kids loved the outdoor shower! We walked the 50 yards to the beach every morning and the kids really liked stopping by the pool to release the crabs that had fallen inside... More
