We were there during the hottest period, and this was a perfect oasis to relax and re-energize. There is a fantastic restaurant right there with a pool,...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Playa Cielo in Villa #3 that looks out past the well-tended garden and pool (for hotel guests only) to the beach. The villa is spacious with good a/c, a huge bed, a kitchenette and a great open air (but private) shower. Fresh fruit brought to the villa every morning but we recommend the 20...

Four luxurious villas located steps from the white sandy beaches of Santa Teresa. The unique blend of hospitality, on-beach location, and boutique hotel luxury, truly and almost unbelievably, exceeds expectations! My husband and I came with our two daughters (9,11) in February when Santa Teresa is very dry. The grounds at the hotel were lush and green, and beautifully landscaped....
