My 4 friends and I had a an amazing time in Playa for our senior year of college spring break. We didn't want a typical spring break, but a place to relax, eat good food, be close to the beach, and not have to pay too much! Hotel Cielo fit everything we were looking for. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! We stayed in one room with 5 people and our own bathroom, which was small, but it worked for us, and had lots of windows where we got nice cool breezes and woke up to the natural light! We also had a balcony overlooking the street, the beach, and were right above the restaurant Carboncitos.
Carboncitos had great deals for drinks and food if you stay at Hotel Cielo, and we didn't really get sick of the food there. Because Playa isn't very big, we wanted to walk to some other local (even better priced) places to eat, and the hotel staff had great recommendations.
The WATER jug dispensers were an AMAZING surprise at Cielo. When it's that hot, you need to keep drinking water, but that can also get pricey. We all brought our own reusable water bottles (or you can just buy a disposable one when you get there) and refilled several times throughout the day!
Overall, this was an excellent stay that I think a variety of people would be able to enjoy, not just college kids on a low budget. It was so beautiful, especially for the price we paid! I would definitely go back and recommend this to anyone!
