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

This, by far, was The BEST restaurant y casita set up in Nicaragua! William and Xavier are the most engaging owners we have come across in our travels. This is up country tranquility with an ocean view, lots of open space, a few friendly locals, and some of the best food around! We cannot say enough other than we WILL... More

Wow! We loved this place. The two French owners have built it up with love and care and you can feel it. It's remote and feels like you've stepped away from the hustle and bustle that comes from travelling; to a lodge-like setting with beautiful views of the local valleys and farm lands. Relax in a hammock in the big... More

We first visited Al Cielo for a couple of dinners while staying in Northern Nicaragua. The meals were great with Xavier and William (the two French owners) very welcoming, exhibiting great humour and an enthusiasm for Northern Nicaragua that was contagious. We then headed south to carry on with our trip. Long story short, when renting an expensive house south... More
