Playa Cielo is a very beautiful property located in the very cool town of Santa Teresa. Check out some of the pictures of this place and you can see why you are paying the extra money to stay here. Try to think of the bungalows as more of a vacation rental than a hotel as it was lacking some of... More

There is no other place like Playa Cielo in Santa Teresa!!! Wow IS all you can think while you're walking up to your villa surrounded by all the lush gardens. The grounds are so beautiful and are kept immaculately well. The atmosphere as you go down the walk way passing all the wonderful plants and features is breath taking. The... More

Perfect spot to bring your lady. Beachfront, private, secure, quiet, warm, inviting. Hard pressed to find a cooler place to stay. Thanks to the owners for sharing this awesome place with the rest of us. Would stay again in a second.

My husband and I stayed at Playa Cielo for our honeymoon in mid Novemeber. This was our first trip to Santa Teresa and definitely not our last. What a spectacular place to stay! The grounds are beautiful with 4 casitas, a pool, and a restaurant right on the beach. The owners, Adelle and Sol make sure all your needs are... More

There are no words to describe the magic of this place that would do it justice. Perhaps, that is why it has taken us so long to sit down and put together a worthy review. Our 16-night stay at Playa Cielo began on July 11th, and believe us, when the time was nearing to pack and go, we did not... More

Spent a glorious honeymoon week at Playa Cielo. It was the greatest place we have ever stayed. We made ourselves at home, and they made us feel at home..... without being at home. Everything was perfect. Fresh fruit every morning. Extremely comfortable inside and out. Immaculate grounds and room. The staff was AMAZING!!! I cannot stress enough how great it... More

My husband and I spent the first 6 nights of our honeymoon at Playa Cielo and couldn't have picked a better spot to start our trip. We traveled at the end of August 2012 and had such amazing weather and gorgeous sunsets. The grounds are immaculate and we loved our ocean front villa. The porch area in front had the... More

We spent 10 nights at Playa Cielo in late August of this year (2012). We are a family of 5 with two teenaged boys and a baby and we stayed in the new two-bedroom house at the top of the hill. The house is great, the bathrooms and outdoor showers fantastic, the king sized beds comfortable enough that our sons... More

My Wife and I stayed here for 17 magical nights, and had the best holiday ever. Our bungalow was lovely, with tastefully decorated interior, four poster bed, ( really comfortable) and the bathroom had a great view of the blue sky, or the stars through the really clever glass fronted inside/outside shower area. Outside there was a really comfortable lounging... More
