My wife and I just spent a week at Al Cielo and had a fantastic experience. The staff was terrific and always willing to go the extra mile. We stayed in a bottom floor room named Fuego and it was very clean and had everything we needed. We loved leaving the windows open at night to hear the pounding waves a short distance from our room. We had zero issues with mosquitos the entire week.
Food was really good. Breakfast comes with a plate of fresh fruit and a plate of crusty bready with jam and honey. You can also get an omellete or anything else if you like. We had fish tacos for lunch and also had nachos and other snacks brought down to us at the beach. Margaritas and mojitos were very tasty and they have an extensive wine list. Dinners featured a "seafood catch of the day" and we enjoyed those every evening. Hogfish, red snapper and grouper were all tasty and huge proportions.
The beach--All I can say is wow! This stretch of beach is probably the best I have ever seen including Tulum and Great Exuma. To your left is the deserted Xpuha Palace that has a terrific cove and calm, clear water. On down the beach is an all inclusive Catalonia resort that has quite a few folks but like I said, it is quite a walk down the beach. You can look in either direction and only see may four people so we felt like we had our own personal beach. The weather was sunny and 85 almost every day. We only had it get rainy one afternoon for about 4 hours.
They also offer massages on the beach for $60 per hour and we did that about four times since they were so good and reasonably priced.
I rarely go back to the same place but will definitely consider. I highly endorse this hotel!
