The Habanero restaurant at Playa Ciela is so good and the food, drinks and service top end. The first day we even thought the prices were too good - and yes - the day after the raise the prices, but we went back, and went back. Niki made us feel very comfortable.

Our stay at Playa Cielo was pretty well perfect from top to bottom. The owners, Adele and Sol have put there hearts and souls into Playa Cielo and it shows in every conceivable way from the staff, the design of the villas, landscaping...etc. Pretty well every morning started out walking on the beach with our favorite dog Bambi, a small...

The new Habenero is some of the best mexican I have ever had. Had a great special of Lobster with Chipotle cream sauce, to die for. Staff and new Chef Gary and his wife Nikki make it so special as well. A must for great seafood with a fusion Mexican flare!

My family of four spent Thanksgiving 2011 at Playa Cielo. This property is gorgeous! We stayed in one villa and had plenty of room and felt very safe. We especially loved the outdoor shower, hammocks, fresh fruit and rolls in the morning. Our stay there could not have been better. The owners, Adele and Sol, are so accomodating and helpful... More

My husband and I recently spent the week before Christmas at Paya Cielo. The bungalows were perfect. We spent a fair amount of time just lounging around on the patio in the hammocks and seating area either before or after the days activities. While there we did zip-lining in Montezuma, horse back riding, surf lessons etc.all arranged by the hotel.... More

After spending a few nights at Nayara, an exquisite hotel in Arenal, my husband and I figured our accommodations for the remainder of our trip in Costa Rica could only go down hill. This couldn't be farther from the truth. Playa Cielo truly holds its own. The perfectly luxurious and beautifully appointed casitas, gorgeous grounds, ocean views from every inch... More

We were unofficially on our honeymoon and what a truly luxurious romantic stay. Better than the website pics. The owners were cool people and it was a pleasure to meet them as well. How can beautiful, oceanfront private bungalows perfectly decorated with big gorgeous terraces ever go wrong? The answer is never! Sunsets by the pool, relaxing mornings on the... More

If when you close your eyes in the midst of your harried work week, do you dream of white sand beaches, coconuts swaying in the breeze, a cozy infinity pool with an ocean view, a hammock outside your luxury cabana and an outdoor shower complete with starry-night view? If so, you'll love Playa Cielo. Adele & Shlomi, the owners and... More

Playa Cielo was the perfect beach getaway vacation, I only wish we'd had more time there. We were traveling with our 2 yr old daughter, and the owners and staff treated us as though we were family, taking care of everything we could possibly need. The casitas are so lovely and comfortable with beautiful eco-friendly finishes, canopy king bed, flat... More
