I stayed here about a month ago with some friends for a surf trip. The waves were consistently incredible and just a few minutes walk from the room. The restaurant was pretty amazing as was every restaurant in Santa Teresa. The staff was super friendly and helpful with anything we needed from atv rentals to airline reservations to restaurant reservations...

Beautifully landscaped property adjacent to a small patch of preserved forest- home to howler monkeys, iguanas and lots of birds, and overlooking an awesome stretch of beach. Great restaurant with friendly staff. Check-in: I rarely take note of the check-in process and certainly have never taken time to write a review about it. Here, however, I experienced one of the...

Villas were spacious and gorgeous. The restaurant and pool were nice too. Checking in here was a bit odd. There was no one there when we came off a 6 hour car ride from Nicaragua and exhausted. It was just weird to not have someone ready to check you in. Other than that, I really liked this place and it...

We arrived early after a gruelling night flight from Canada and long drive from Liberia airport and were so grateful that they were able to accommodate our early check in that we requested. We were greeted by Eti (manager) upon arrival and she immediately took us to our villa and showed up around. She knew we were exhausted so just...

My favorite thing about the room is the outdoor shower. It rained a couple of nights and it was a lot of fun showering in the rain..something...

Pura Vida! Thank you to the entire staff at Playa Cielo for making our vacation so relaxing and enjoyable! This was our first time in Costa Rica and Eti (looks like she's running for the place) made sure we experienced everything this side of Costa Rica had to offer. From day one she had a quad waiting for us which...
