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

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
