Let's get it right out there; you are NOT going to save money by eating here. Then again, you get what you pay for. We stayed at Villa Caletas for a week, and ate at the Amphitheater Restaurant often, and each experience was better than the next. Yes, the restaurant is expensive, but we felt it was SO worth it!...

this place is amazing, it has a great view, its very fancy, expensive (but worth it). The food was great overall and the service as well. I am giving it 4/5 since of many things we ordered, all were great but one, the ceviche was not a ceviche, was just a bunch of shrimp with no liquid, just regular shrimp... More

Despite I have great references of Villa Caletas Hotel and their SPA [which I plan to try very soon] I have never stayed in the hotel. And the ONLY reason is that my father lives just a few minutes from there, and every occasion I am around is an opportunity to spend time with him. But where do I go... More

I've been all over the world to many well traveled resorts and some off the beaten path places as well & this is near the top. The staff attended to all our needs with that certain pleasure that makes it seem as though they enjoy doing it. The food was great with a generous range of items on the menu.... More

Someone suggested I have dinner or at least drinks at this restaurant as the view was without a doubt one of the best in Costa Rica and they were so right - wow! I was amazed at the beauty of the sunset, nothing highlights the beauty of this country like this place. Check and be amazed!

This is a deluxe hotel and has two restaurants- one, the Mirador is , I think open only at night- the Amphitheater Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner. The place -perched on the top of a hill is something of a wonderment- fancy rooms of all kinds- and accommodations so elaborate that they give tours of the... More

We had lunch here in Feb 2017 while visiting Puntarenas on a cruise. The restaurant (actually this is a resort) are nestled into the top of a bluff and the views are impressive. The grounds and buildings are beautiful. We were not able to sit in the main part of restaurant due to a scheduled wedding. We sat on the... More

We had a lovely meal. It was a price set menu, limited options. We were both very pleased with our meals. However, if that is not your style, you may want to inquire. The service was exceptional.
