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

Currently on my ninth day of staying at Playas Cielo. Everything exceeded my expectations. When you walk from your bungalow to the beach, you may want to accidentally fall into the pool on the way. Because it is right there you know. Then walk on the beach for hours, if you like. Every part of a Costa Rican vacation can... More

My wife Sarah and I stayed here for a week honeymoon after our wedding and were stunned by the beauty of the property and the care of the staff. Sol and Adele have made their dreams come true by opening this piece of Heaven in Costa Rica and in turn made our dreams come true. The Bungalows are clean and... More

My husband and I stayed at Playa Cielo for the first 5 nights of our honeymoon. It was absolutely blissful. The bungalow was airy, clean, unique and the view was stunning. It has air conditioning, internet, cable and an adorable little kitchen that has everything you need. The king size bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept... More

After 6 hours of traveling to get to Santa Teresa, my boyfriend and I were completely exhausted. The roads into town were terrible so it was far from a pleasant drive. We couldn't wait to get to our hotel. Upon arrival I was warmly greeted by Sol who immediately handed me the keys to our bungalow. No drawn out check-in... More

We were lucky enough to be told about Playa Cielo from friends as we planned our trip to Costa Rica. Having just returned we can honestly say that we spent a week in paradise. Playa Cielo is not your typical "hotel". It's more like renting a private house with your own private beach. The surroundings are beautiful, the accomodations are... More

My wife & I were lucky to stumble upon this fantastic 3 villa-hotel in Santa Teresa, and stay there 2days. You can't go wrong with a private beach house on the most fantastic shore. The place is intimate and luxurious without being flashy and pompous like so many commercial resorts. Will surely return!

We just returned from a 12 day stay at Playa Cielo and we are so thankful to find this beautiful place. We’ve been to Santa Teresa before. The last time the place we had booked turned out to be nothing like it was advertised. It really took away from part of our vacation. We lost money because we had to... More
