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

We stayed at Playa Cielo for a 7-night honeymoon and couldn't have been more pleased. More impressive than the rooms and the setting is the service. After spending months planning a wedding for 200 guests, it was so nice to show up in with literally nothing planned for the honeymoon. Eitte was extremely helpful. Between arranging day trips, setting up... More

Our family stayed for 5 nights at Playa Cielo and had a truly enjoyable stay. The casitas are spacious, spotless and stylish with great little kitchenettes, king size four poster beds (trundle bed for the kids) and open air showers. The outdoor living is space is large and very comfortable with a spacious sectional, hammocks and dining table. We happily... More

Just home from 8 of the best days I've ever had in my life. Arrived here after travelling around Costa Rica and this was the best place we stayed by a mile, out of several 5 star accommodations. Spotless, stylish and modern accommodation on an impossibly beautiful sandy stretch of Santa Teresa beach. Great pool, great restaurant on site.. I... More

My Wife and I visited Playa Cielo in November 2011 (yes it took me a while to write the review). This was our second visit to the area, we spent our honeymoon at Casa Chameleon in Mal Pais the year before. We absolutely love the area and it will always hold a special place in our hearts. We had very... More

We went only to the restaurant but it was amazing. Great service and prices, located beside the beach and the food was delicious! Great mexican food! Definitely comming back next time in Sta Teresa. Also the gardens and the pool area is really beautiful.
