“Out of this world”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We spent only one wonderful night at this amazing place. If you want to truly get away from it all, here is a very special place to stay. We would have liked to stayed longer to soak up the peacefulness of this wild and wonderful coast and El Cielito Cabanas. The beach was empty, except for the small turtle reserve next door. This is one of those truly memorial places that you would never forget. Penny greeted us with a warm welcome and showed us our sweet and extremely clean cabin overlooking the endless beach and the infinity pool. What a wonderful escape from busier places in this world and only just one hour south of Puerto Vallarta. We also had a great dinner at their restaurant. This is truly a gem of a place. A romantic place for a couple, or a special place to spend quietly with your family. The only thing to do here is enjoy its so special location and each other's companionship.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the beach

I am reluctant to be the first to review this place as it is truly an undiscovered gem! Located about 2 hours south of Puerto Vallarta and 10 mins south of the small fishing village of Tehuamixtle, El Cielito Cabanas are secluded and quiet with breathtaking views. The cabanas sit perched on a small cliff overlooking a stunning, undeveloped, golden sand beach that goes for miles. The accommodations themselves are simple and rustic, but perfectly clean and seem to match the wild coast line. They have an onsite restaurant that serves wonderfully fresh and simple dishes with an emphasis on seafood...probably brought in fresh that day by one of the local fishermen in the area. The infinity pool is wonderful for relaxing around and is needed as the wild surf out front does not lend well for swimming. There's little to do here besides relax, walk on the beach, eat fresh seafood, drink cold cervezas and enjoy the company of your loved ones...which suited us just fine. I would definitely recommend El Cielito for a quiet getaway from the mega resorts of Vallarta...it's a place to unwind and escape from it all!!
PS The road to El Cielito is unpaved for about the last hour from Vallarta so be prepared for a bit of a bumpy journey.
PPS an additional tip: go for lunch at one of the restaurants in the nearby fishing village of Tehuamixtle. Order the oysters and watch your waitress walk along the beach over to the pier and have your oysters shucked freshly from the ocean by one of the local fishermen!
