      Stayed here in mid January this year for two weeks. If you don't want to do the all inclusive thing, ( which we didnt - boring !) then this Hotel is for you. Perfect location : 2 mins walk to the beach and the same to fifth avenue where all the action is (yet just far enough away not to be noisy). Hotel spotlessly clean and rooms very comfortable with the restaurant attached being one of the best in Playa , charging very reasonable prices..We loved our time in Playa del Carmen and Hotel Cielo definitely contributed to that. We would 100% recommend this hotel to others and hope to return ourselves very soon. PS.The staff here deserve a special mention.. Miguel, xSimone and the others were very helpful and always had a smile on their faces with nothing ever being too much trouble for them.

      Hotel Cielo had helpful and friendly service, fine rooms, and was really close to both the beach and ferry pier. Our room was a little noisy at night, due to the restaurant downstairs, but we enjoyed the half-price breakfast there in the morning with a view of the beach down the street. The price was reasonable, especially in expensive Playa, and we'd recommend it to friends.

      Matt883 for taking the time to write your review. Some times we experience a snafu here & there, I had looked in to this & found out the restaurant had forgot to close adjoining door which is done at 10:00 pm every night. so please accept our apologies. We are delighted that you enjoyed your the rest of you vacation, appreciate the kind words & thank you for the recommendation. We know there are many hotels in Playa del Carmen, so thank you for choosing Hotel Cielo & we look forward to your return to the beautiful Riviera Maya.

      I chose Hotel Cielo based on my Tripadvisor research and I was completely happy with the experience. More than happy. There was a mix up about how many beds we required in one of our rooms so the staff gave us a free upgrade to the family room which was beautiful and overlooked the street. After staying in a cookie cutter resort in Playa del Carmen, the Hotel Cielo allowed me to experience real Mexico. I loved the small quaint design of the building, the beds were amazing, the staff was incredibly helpful, the location was a total surprise as it was central to all things bustling, and the restaurant made me fall in love with Mexican food and beer. We were shocked at how great their prices were and kicked ourselves for not booking more time there. I will absolutely stay at Hotel Cielo again next year and would recommend this spot to anyone who wants a great price in a central location with great food.

      Room Tip: The family room was much louder than the interior rooms simply because it was right on the street.

      We stayed at Hotel Cielo again this month and loved it! The location is perfect. The room was was very nice, with lovely tile decor, lots of storage space and a really comfortable king sized bed. There was a great cable television and free wifi too! The best feature of the hotel is the staff, they are awesome, super friendly and helpful. It was a quick three minute walk to the beach in the mornings, and lots of great restaurants within walking distance-if you feel the need to go beyond the great onsite Mexican restaurant. You can comfortably walk to the bus station from the airport, but taxi's are plentiful too. Overall a great experience. We will be back :)

      Thank you Kinich for taking the time to write your review. We are delighted that you yet again had a wonderful stay & we appreciate the kind words. As much as we appreciate the review, it is I that must say a few kind words about you. Just so everyone knows, Kinich is part of a veterinarian school that has been staying with us 2 times a year for the last 6 or 7 years (getting old, cant remember). They train down here with marine & canine, as part of the canine they help local dog & cat shelters that are overwhelmed, I was able to see them in action & it is really heartwarming how they care. And the few people like Sylvia the owner Byblos restaurant who also runs SOS el Arca, the people who run Cocos cat shelter & Peanuts animal shelter. We all know how they needed your help, so thank you for being so kind. And for all of you animal lovers out there…. they save the lives of Turtles & Dolphins that are in despair. We know there are many hotels to choose from in Playa del Carmen, so thank you for continually to choose Hotel Cielo & we will see you in July.

      Hotel Cielo is a very comfortable place to stay. The staff was excellent, rooms very nice and breakfast at half price was the best! The beach club that they offer is excellent. It's just a few blocks away and worth going. Great location on the beach with waiter service. Outside rooms can be a little noisy in the early morning from the street cleaners. Other than that, great place to stay.

      Room Tip: Inside rooms if your a light sleeper
