My friend and I just spent two nights at Al Cielo. Everything about our stay was top notch. The cabins are simple, clean, with great panoramic views of the neighboring countryside to the ocean. The setting is tranquil, the stars at night amazing. The meals were flavorful and inventive. William our host could not have been more helpful, as was... More

Fun time, fun employees, very informative of rums! :) Pizza was supposed to be out of this world, but it was just okay. Food was pretty good, we had two chicken dishes I believe.

Al Cielo is magical. I came for dinner and was so enchanted by this place that I ended up staying in one of their cabans throughout my vacation! It is absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend it. First of all the location is beautiful, a wide and open field sitting atop of a hill with stunning 360 views of the... More

Everyone, including my husband, loved the pizza. I can't eat it since I'm gluten free, but the steak was AMAZING -- I cleaned my plate and went on the the chocolate mousse! Breakfast was really good too, with fresh baked bread hot from the oven. This is a wonderful place, both for the restaurant and the hotel!

Our friend from Padre Ramos/Jiquilillo took us to the Al Cielo. He has mentioned this place several times and we finally took him up on his offer to go there. In short the grounds and vistas from Al Cielo are spectacular!! When we arrived I immediately ordered a Victoria Frost Cerveza and took a stroll with my kids around the... More

We arrived after sunset so we were unable to take in the beautiful view. The food was great and reasonably priced.

Found this treasure over the weekend while I was on a mission trip in Jiquilillo. I'll be back my next trip down!

From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and at home. This was our home base for over a month. The food was consistently awesome as were the staff. This is definitely a place you want to visit and then visit again! The owners William and Xavier are the best, if you are lucky you can beat them at Petunk... More
