I stayed there for just over a week with some friends and it was amazing! It's so central to everything and the whether is beautiful all the time. The cabins are so cozy and the grounds are very well looked after. Would highly recommend this place to anyone!

We were a family group of 8, stayed 3 nights and it was great. The rooms are cozy, extra clean, fully equipped and the Rancho is great for cooking with a lovely view to the pool and mountains. We really enjoy our days off, every time we come to Poco Cielo!

We loved our time at Poco Cielo. Our casita was surrounded by lush vegetation, trees and tall flowering plants, all of which kept the place cool during the warmer parts of the day. It was very well screened to keep out the majority of insects and it had an effective air-flow system using screened air-vents on the walls close to...

Poco cielo ( a little piece of heaven) is totally an appropriate name for this beautiful little resort. Located just up the road from the little town of Atenas (not Too far from San Jose) It is up in the mountains just enough to cool it off a bit. The owners Gary and Josanna are spectacular hosts and their place...

I stayed here for four nights while traveling alone to visit my son in Atenas. Gary and Josana could not have been more accommodating. Gary arranged airport transportation and a car for me in Atenas. The property is truly heavenly. Darling cabins with comfortable beds. Very clean and a great location.
