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.

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...

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...

Little did I know, that this trip would end up being the most amazing trip my husband and I have ever taken,mostly thanks to the kindness and hospitality offered by Playa Cielo.

We have been coming to Playa Cielo for the past four years, the last two of which were with a dear friend Missy. Playa Cielo is the perfect combination of a great villa on the beach and a laid back atmosphere. The villas are spacious and have an amazing out door shower. Nothing like taking a shower at night under...
