My husband and I stayed at Playa Cielo for almost a week for our honeymoon. This place is amazing. We loved it and would highly recomend it to anyone planning a trip to Santa Teresa, CR. They arranged to have a car pick us up from Tambor, the driver was the best. He ended up driving us throughout the entire... More

I stayed a week at Playa Cielo and wish it could have been longer. Next time! I want to thank Adele, Sol, Gaby, Sivon and Eti for making me feel like part of their family. The casitas are amazing - so relaxing and peaceful. I loved the open air shower! The setting is right on a beautiful beach. I loved... More

How else can you describe this awsome jewel other than a Bungalow that's Heaven on Earth. The comfortable Canopy King bed with shaded glass doors opening onto your covered patio with views across the pool to the huge surf. The stunning views from the restaurant and bar are one of a kind in this part of Costa Rica. It's on... More

If you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to stay in the tropics with the added bonus of a restaurant and some wonderful excursions at your disposal, this is definitely the place. I can't call the folks at PC "staff" because, by the time we left, they were like friends to us - my wife actually teared up when... More

We stayed three nights at Playa Cielo and loved it. The room was great and spacious. The bed was comfortable. It was nice to have a small kitchen, but we spent most our time on the patio in the hammocks, lounging on the couches, or sitting at the outside table looking at the ocean. Everyone there is very helpful and... More

My husband and I just spent 5 nights at Playa Cielo. We had a wonderful time. The room was beautiful and very clean. We loved the comfy king size bed! It was also nice to have a little kitchenette. We enjoyed making coffee in the morning, and we used it once to cook lunch. We also enjoyed having the table... More

We decided to venture to Costa Rica for our honeymoon and through Trip Advisor, found Playa Cielo. What a wonderful place! We landed in San Jose, spent the night at the Double Tree by Hilton and took an early flight out to the Tambor Airport (if you can call it that). Playa Cielo (per our request) arranged for a taxi...

My husband and I spent five nights at Playa Cielo in December 2011, and it's taken me this long to write a review because doing so forces me to acknowledge we are no longer in paradise. This was our first extended trip away from our young kids, and we couldn't have picked a better place to relax, recover (from five... More

Our first trip to Costa Rica was spectacular. We traveled to Playa Cielo for a family surf vacation and were thrilled with it all! Our hosts, Adel and Sol made us feel so welcome from the day we arrived and our bungalow was well appointed and very private. The property is gorgeous, even better than depicted in the photos! The...

Had an amazing time at Habaneros! My family and I rode quads over from Montezuma to have dinner and watch the sunset at Playa Cielo. I highly recommend eating here. The food was amazing but mostly because of the employees. I had a wonderful waitress who offered good advice for my next year in the area and the warm hearted... More
