This trip with my best friend was all that I could imagine. The photos online cannot do it justice. The staff was amazingly nice, but do not be cheap on the tipping. Notable staff were Jockson (restaurant) and Giovanni (bellhop). We had a Junior Suite Superior, which was well worth its price. The room was very spacious, and the bathroom...

This hotel was an oasis in what was a great trip. We stayed in the Oriental Suite and was blown away with the privacy and beauty all from our balcony. If you have time, stay a night or two...it's great.

Villa Caletas is perched high up on a ridge with unobstructed views of the ocean and mass foliage surrounding the property. Outdoor dining allows you to feel connected with nature with enjoying a variety of options for each meal. The property is sizable with a few buildings - there is a slight, but manageable walk from the suites to the...

My husband and I recently got married at Rancho Caletas venue at Villa Caletas. From start to finish, we had great correspondence with their staff (Mariana). The venue is beautiful and if you are looking for an amazing wedding, definitely think about this venue (especially for a more casual feel and less ornate). The staff did an amazing job and...

The Villas Caletas is by far the best place we experienced on our recent trip to Costa Rica. The adventure starts the moment you turn to go up the steep winding road. Upon arrival we were met by Giovanni who continued to be a wonderful host and guide throughout our stay. From Rodrigo in the front office, to Lauren in...

I was prepared for something too flashy- and while some of the suites might qualify, the public rooms were tasteful and the open air lunch area felt like we were in a refined restaurant on the French Riviera-- Our salads were great- and not the prices were not at all inflated. Service was professional and the view was worth the...

The hotel is visually stunning. Off the beaten path about 10ish km north of Jaco it doesn't have all the hustle and bustle of the beach town, so it's a lot quieter, but does make it hard/expensive (just b/c we had a cabbie charge us $40 once) to get around if you don't have your own car and want to...

We met friends here for lunch on terrace, The drive up to the resort was curvy and steep -quite an adventure! The views however more than made up for it the long ocean view will long be a pleasant memory. The lobby, restaurant, and terrace were exquisite and the service superb.

Standard room with 1 king bed had 2 full bathrooms; Jr suite with 2 bedrooms had 1 bathroom (??).

Dear Friend, thank you for your review. We are sad to know that you did not enjoyed all the hotel has to offer. Regarding the number of bathrooms in the standard room you were, some are equipped with an extra bathroom for disable travelers, explaining why there were two. We are going to share your comments with the department involved...

We had trouble finding this road, and it was the one time google maps failed us. Try WAZE. It’s a fun and funky mix of architecture but the views are quite stunning. The road is very windy, so everyone who urged us to go up for sunset drinks we think got it wrong: unless you want to take a taxi,...
