Poco Cielo Resort was always clean, quiet and totally relaxing for the 2 weeks we stayed there. Roberto the grounds keeper always did a good job, pool was cleaned everyday. Grettle kept the cabins clean and tidy. She went out of her way to always help us with whatever we needed! Gary and Josanne were so accommodating and the hospitality... More

I hesitate to say how much we enjoyed our stay here, because I want it to be available next time we visit Costa Rica. Our one bedroom bungalow was beautiful with granite counter tops and a wood plank ceiling. There is no A/C but it really isn't needed with the perfect Atenas weather. Gary and Josanne are wonderful hosts, and... More

We tasted Artesian Spring water. We talked, shared and truly bonded. They are what travel is all about. its the people. Poco Cielo is exactly what I... More

We were a family group of 8, stayed 3 nights and it was great. The rooms are cozy, extra clean, fully equipped and the Rancho is great for cooking with a lovely view to the pool and mountains. We really enjoy our days off, every time we come to Poco Cielo!

This was part of my parents first time going out of Canada. Their goal was to relax and have a comfortable weather. The area is beautiful and tremendously enjoyed the setting Gary and Josanne have set up. Both of them were also great hosts, helping out whenever they could, may it be doing a quick tour of Atenas or helping... More

We loved our time at Poco Cielo. Our casita was surrounded by lush vegetation, trees and tall flowering plants, all of which kept the place cool during the warmer parts of the day. It was very well screened to keep out the majority of insects and it had an effective air-flow system using screened air-vents on the walls close to... More

Wonderful hosts, excellent accommodations; Plentiful hot water, very good kitchen, clean and comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, comfortable bed. The grounds are very pleasing and each cottage offers a degree of privacy. The community rancho is very well stocked, the pool is large and well maintained. The internet is not the best as is common in Costa Rica but if... More

Poco cielo ( a little piece of heaven) is totally an appropriate name for this beautiful little resort. Located just up the road from the little town of Atenas (not Too far from San Jose) It is up in the mountains just enough to cool it off a bit. The owners Gary and Josanna are spectacular hosts and their place... More
