Probably my favorite place on earth. I don't even have the words to express how beautiful, amazing and perfect this place is. The infinity pool is amazing and you look out over the private beach and ocean with lush tropical greenery. We had a private large tub with a giant window and watched scarlet macaws fly by many times. The...

We came across Villa Caletas two years from a recommendation from a lovely couple in Jaco. They told us it was the best spot to see the sunset. Wow. They were so right! So 2 years later we came to spend our honeymoon. We stayed in Villa #30. Spectacular, stunning, beautiful! Our view was incredible. We overlooked the ocean and...

I was pretty confident that Villa Caletas would be a decent gamble for my first trip to Costa Rica based on all the positive reviews and stunning photos. But they were no match for my initial amazement when setting foot in our Junior Superior suite room. It was incredible. Large and airy with an amazing view through the glass patio...

Villa Caletas is a MUST if you're in Jaco/Herradura area if you're in need for some R&R.

We stayed in a Junior Suite that looked over the Pacific, with...

The Spa, Workout Room, Infinity Pool, Restaurant and Service are only surpassed by the view! OK, it's a long drive to the beach but you ARE on top of a mountain! It's simply dreamy and I highly recommend you staying a few nights at this place and a few nights down in Jaco right on the beach.

I was married at this hotel more than a decade ago, so I am quite partial to its concept and surroundings. The view is unparalleled and the amphitheater brilliant. However, on this trip we had already stayed at several 4-5 star accommodations all over Costa Rica, and compared to other similar properties Villa Caletas just isn't keeping up. Our bed...
