My entire family stayed at Playa Cielo over Thanksgiving 2013. We had 3 of the houses and couldn't have been happier. Wonderful location, on the beach, safe and secure, beautiful houses with super comfy beds, fruit plates in the morning and a fantastic Mex restaurant on the property. It was so great that we have booked it again for this...

Beautiful place. In the heart of Santa Teresa there's this piece of heaven. Five little houses right on the beach, each with their kitchenette with a nice atmosphere, great views, and conveniently close to the beach, plenty on details and the most important very clean. The restaurant on the beach is highly recommended. Their chef knows how to please every...

This hotel is beyond how words can describe it. I was lucky enough to stay in such a beautiful, fun, exotic hotel. The restaurant, Habenero, is the best restaurant in Santa teresa. The room comes equipped with so many things including a mini kitchen!! I enjoyed swimming in the pool, hanging out with my family in the hammocks, and sleeping...

My husband and I were married May 3rd right on the beach at Playa Cielo and it was utter perfection! Every staff member from the moment of our arrival to the second we left was attentive, courteous, and anticipated our every need. We now consider each and every one of them family. From Renee who greeted us, to Ettie the...

We have just returned from our fantastic trip through Costa Rica on which we spent the most fantastic three days in the wonderful Playa Cielo. I have never written any review before but this place is worth starting it although I would rather like to keep this gem as a secret place. The way we were welcomed by Adele and...

We couldn't have been happier staying at Playa Ceilo, they only have a handful of private bungalows on a beautifully manicured property. The staff was incredibly nice and friendly and they all felt like family by the time we left. The restaurant is one of the if not the best in town and having the fresh fruit delivered every morning...

My wife and I spent an amazing vacation here. The Casitas are very clean contemporary, but not lacking in a very stylish, rustic charm. Sol (the owner) & Eti the manager were more than accommodating. You certainly feel like they car as not request is too all or big. If they can help, they will. The grounds are located steps...

My husband and I stayed at Playa Cielo for almost 2 weeks in April. We had never been to Costa Rica before and had no expectations . Playa Cielo was a dream come true with the beach steps away, a wonderfully delicious restaurant on site, and the friendly manager Eti that met our every need. We rented an ATV and...
