Super romantic place to go and take your partner. The food is great, the view is absolutely incredible, and the whole place has an air of luxury, but with totally reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend this place.

Being warmly greeted as we did, we quickly realised that we were going to be happy here, which, along with the fantastic surf made this place even more enjoyable, true the guys certainly know how to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and as long as you don't beat them at Petanque (sorry that must of hurt! :)) they will easily...

I love Al Cielo! William, Xavier and all the staff are an awesome compliment to an amazing dining experience and setting. Playing Petanque (sp???) was a great memory the cabanas are simple and reasonably priced. THe local surf scene is a quick drive to great waves. I won't be staying anywhere but here when i return in 2014! I'm glad... More

We could not have asked for a better place to spend our last week in Nicaragua!! The location is stunning, the food incredible and the service and atmosphere unbeatable. William and Xavier are such welcoming, warm spirited hosts, they really made us feel at home. Of course the petanque course is also surely worth the trip, hands down best one... More
