Nice small hotel right off 5th (the Main Street with shops and bars. ) It is far enough away from the party and bars so you can sleep and relax in this very unique Mexico hotel. The restaurant Carboncitos which is attached to the hotel is excellent with authentic Mexican food. The hotel offers a 50% off breakfast. We had more than we could eat for less than $10 U.S.D. We have been twice now and will go back again.

The best compliment for us above all others is that our guests want to come back. We so appreciate the time you took to write this and for shring it with the TripAdvisor community. Being a small boutique hotel, keeps us out of the eye of many. You sharing your experience with other shows what we have to offer in the best way possible, a personal review. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to Playa del Carmen!

This is our 3rd time staying at Hotel Cielo and it keeps getting better. This is an authentic Mexican hotel that is amazingly clean and well kept. I don't understand how someone can pass this up for those "Americanized" hotels that keep popping up in Playa...If you want to come to Mexico, stay at a hotel that you feel like you are in Mexico. The price of this hotel should be double (don't tell Steve the owner)...The restaurant attached is amazing and the staff is so friendly. We will be back for a 4th time as this is our favorite spot and it is right in the middle of everything. Thanks so much for the hospitality and helping us to make new memories!!

This charming hotel is really close to 5th Ave. The rooms are cleverly decorated, and the beds are comfortable. There is a super cool rooftop deck that is great for yoga or chilling with a good book, with awesome views of the Caribbean a short walk away. The staff is super friendly and there is a great restaurant, Carboncitos, on-site. Rates are reasonable, and the hotel is safe, immaculately clean, and close to everything. This is one of the last small, cool hotels in Playa, one we enjoy visiting every year.

The staff at Hotel Cielo is so great. They are helpful and so kind. The rooms are very nice and the rooftop has a great view. The location is central which is convenient but sometimes there is noise from the street or construction. Not a reason not to come, just bring ear plugs! I enjoyed my stay very much and am grateful for their hospitality.
