Paul and Rosie think of every single thing to make your stay amaaaazing! Take your meals with them as their cooking is the best. We did all breakfast and most of our dinners with them. We were extremely happy with each and every meal! They accommodate your needs. I recommend asking tons of questions ahead of time, we did and it made our stay perfect! The house is fantastic, the pool and grounds are the best place to relax. Have Paul and Rosie help you with your excursions as they will set you up with the best of the best. We did not want to leave. They have two fun kids and a talking dog that will add to your adventure if you are open to that, we were and we never failed to have fun laughs. If you are going to Costa Rica, then hands down this is the place to stay!
Our family had a great visit to Casa Cielo! You won't believe what a great home, and great view this is. Paul, Rosy, Stef, Luke and Jr (sweet pup!) are outstanding hosts. The breakfast and dinners Rosy made for us were the best we had in all of Costa Rica. Trust Paul on the various excursions, we loved all of them - hiking the hanging bridges, whitewater rafting and ziplining.
We were a group of 5 friends traveling to CR for the first time. Usually we stay in resorts or hotels, but this time we wanted to try something different. I'm so glad we did! It was better than staying at a resort. Paul was beyond helpful with information, recommended activities, and made it so easy to contact him before & during our stay. His maps were a lifesaver since we got a rental car. One tip: don't follow GPS, use his directions!!! The excursions he set up for us were the highlight of our trip (zip lining, repelling, hot springs, hiking). He really does know everything about the area. The included breakfasts were delicious, we all loved the 'family tico' one. One of the best meals we had all week! Fresh fruit, juice, and omg the hot sauces were awesome. And they serve it with really good coffee poolside and a waterfall near the pool that just makes your morning....the house is beautiful and looks just like the pictures but larger. There was so much room and it was an open floor plan. There's even a bar and hammocks upstairs where the best view is. It was spotless and had everything you need to cook, prepare food, or feel like home. We didn't do any cooking, but ordered some pizzas and sangria off of the house menu. It was so good! Everything is homemade. Casa Cielo offers family dinners, poolside massages, and even to go grocery shopping for you. Definitely great for families. There were plenty of towels and pool towels too. The view from upstairs was insane, I loved waking up to the volcano each morning. Casa Cielo was the perfect package. You get great hosts, tasty food, and beautiful house. Don't forget to ask for a visit from Junior, the most adorable dog. We visited 3 locations in CR, Casa Cielo was our favorite. Highly highly recommend!!! The only thing to mention is that there was no AC, but it was never too warm; lots of fans and blinds.
We started our trip with a rocky start due to airline delays but we soon forgot that when we arrived to Casa Cielo. We were greeted by Paul and his two sweet children as they showed us around their beautiful home. I could not thank them enough for providing a new crib for our 6-month old baby to sleep in along with a mosquito net. It meant a lot to us that they went above and beyond. We ordered the Costa Rican BBQ dinner that night, and that's when we got to meet Paul's beautiful wife who prepared the meal. It was so delicious, the rub that Paul makes was fantastic and the cornbread and beans made by Rosy was out of this world.
The upstairs master has an open view to the volcano, which was a nice sight when waking up in the morning.
Breakfast was served daily, so delicious and fresh.
Paul always went out of his way to make sure we were doing fine, helped us with maps and excursions and just made everything so much easier for us. The home had everything you needed so you were comfortable.
I highly recommend this home if you're ever in Costa Rica and want to enjoy the Arenal Volcano and Hot springs. We just wished we got to stay here longer.
Until next time...thank you Robinson Family!
This is the perfect place to be if you feel like being surrounded by beauty and still close enough to enjoy all the area has to offer. Half the time, we didn't want to leave! The property and home are beautiful and our hosts were available and willing to help us with anything we needed, which was awesome! The meals prepared by Rosie and Paul were AMAZING and we really enjoyed getting to know the family. This was definitely a highlight of our trip!
