I had my wedding at Villa Caletas, and about 25 of my guests also stayed there. We arrived a day before our guests, so I loved seeing a new batch of jaws drop each time new guests arrived. Everyone loved it and had an excellent time - so whether the guests came as couples, families, or groups of friends, Villa...

We got the super suite in the separate building. Our room is on the second floor from the top, which has a huge / gigantic terrace - must be well over 1,000 sqft.

Amazing, beautiful, relaxing, perfect! We had activities planned during the day, but I almost chose to cancel and stay at the hotel. It was just amazing! Perfect for our honeymoon and the staff were very nice and even left fresh flower petals on our bed :)

This is one of my favorite hotels inthe world. It is perched high on a mountain with sweeping views of the ocean. The private villas are well appointed, the flora and fauna are everywhere you turn. When lounging in the negative edge pool, it seems like you are sitting on top of the world and visually could float right out...

Its on a cliff that is breathtaking. Its so tropical and beautiful, the place is a real gem. I thought for the price, I got way more than expected. We were only there for one night and we were so happy. Breakfast, get the plantains with natilla. So good.

This place was a gem! It's nice because it's easily accessible by major hwys but far inland that you can't hear anything but the wilderness. The resort is located at the top of the hill and nested nicely in a rainforest setting. However, let me warn you if you're afraid of critters and insects... There are tons! Highly recommended bringing...
