My husband and I spent the first 6 nights of our honeymoon at Playa Cielo and couldn't have picked a better spot to start our trip. We traveled at the end of August 2012 and had such amazing weather and gorgeous sunsets. The grounds are immaculate and we loved our ocean front villa. The porch area in front had the best ocean view and was our favorite spot for relaxing all times of the day! It was such a peaceful stay. Adele, Sol, Carlos and Jose made our trip unforgettable and made us feel apart of their home. Playa Cielo is centrally located which makes it very easy to access surf and restaurants. We walked a ton on our trip and didn't find the need for a rental car. You can set up ATV rental and activities right on the property. We highly recommend Pabros tours! He is AMAZING and such a treat. We had the best time on all his tours! He takes tons of photos along the way and is very informative. Thanks Playa Cielo for a honeymoon we'll never forget!

We spent 10 nights at Playa Cielo in late August of this year (2012). We are a family of 5 with two teenaged boys and a baby and we stayed in the new two-bedroom house at the top of the hill. The house is great, the bathrooms and outdoor showers fantastic, the king sized beds comfortable enough that our sons did not complain about sharing a bed and setting up a pillow wall between them. The owners, Adele and Sol, were incredibly gracious hosts, we saw them every day at the restaurant for drinks. The manager Carlos was wonderful and willing to help us at any time. They will become lifelong friends I am sure. We were awake early enough to see the howlers come down to the ocean, rode horses on the beach, relaxed and recharged our batteries. We highly recommend this jewel. And the low season was great, we felt like the beach was ours alone.

My Wife and I stayed here for 17 magical nights, and had the best holiday ever.

Our bungalow was lovely, with tastefully decorated interior, four poster bed, ( really comfortable) and the bathroom had a great view of the blue sky, or the stars through the really clever glass fronted inside/outside shower area.
Outside there was a really comfortable lounging area on the terrace; the view of the ocean and the tropical trees and plants was stunning.
It was great when the sun went down to light a few candles, listen to the ocean, and have a few drinks whilst deciding what to have for dinner at Habaneros, (see seperate review) the delicious Mexican restaurant just along the garden path.
For a few nights we had myriads of fireflies outside our bugalow lighting up the garden like a mini galaxy - wow!
Theres a great pool area a few steps from the beach, and a breathtaking vista of the Pacific Ocean and the amazing surf, that comes free with every stay here!
Adele, Sol, and all the staff made us feel like being one of the family, and every care was taken to ensure we were comfortable and happy during our stay, we are coming back next Summer so that says it all!

Room Tip: We had the butterfly bungalow, but all of the bungalows are well situated for privacy and views.

My husband and I came here on our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Adele, Sol, Eti, Jose, Antonia, and the rest of the staff go out of their way to ensure that you have everything you need.

We arrived late after riding the ferry over and were there for over 24 hours before WE asked whether they wanted the money for our room. Very nice to not feel pressured for money but totally different from things here in the states.

Eti arranged all of our activities upon arrival; listen to her recommendations! You cannot go wrong!

We spent two of our five nights eating at the restaurant which had amazing food, there's really nothing on the menu that you won't enjoy.

The rooms are amazing; king size bed, outdoor shower, kitchenette, air-conditioning, amazing front porch, with each one having a wonderful view. We spent a couple days just hanging out on the property; there was always someone around to talk to and spent quite a bit of time getting to know Adele.

All in all there is nothing neither myself or my husband would change about our stay here except maybe skipping the coffee plantation and staying a few extra days!

The location is perfect - just steps from the beach. You can even see the ocean from your room. The rooms were very clean, bright and beautiful. The outdoor shower was very nice..however the water temp had a mind of its own - from cool to warm to hot without touching the dial. Jose, the groundskeeper was very friendly and always looking out for you. Carlos was also fantastic and extremely helpful. Although we did receive fruit each morning, I would expect that a hotel in this price range would include a breakfast with more variety. Habaneros was delicious!
