I think our room was the Honeymoon Suite. The panoramic views were breathtaking and our mini-infinity pool and the jacuzzi were well used on the deck. We have lived in NYC and Los Angeles and traveled all over the world. Chef Ramon's food at the hotel restaurant was some of the best we have ever had. Every dish was outstanding:...

This could be a 4 or 5 star depending on what you want from your holiday. If you are after a relaxing weekend...week.. without any connections, interruptions etc this is the perfect place . The views are amazing and so the infinity pools and you have all the privacy needed. If you want to visit or go to the beach..this...

I surprised my family with a long weekend birthday getaway at Villa Caletas and we could not have been happier with our stay. We stayed in a junior suite (superior) which was huge, accommodating easily our family of four. Our children adored having their own private jacuzzi and the semi-private pool a quick hop away. The views are gorgeous and...

Villa Caletas was recommended as a top property in the area by a friend and local business owner. The property can be seen from the road below, and following a slow steep drive we arrived at our destination. The view from the lobby was spectacular! We were escorted to our junior suite by a bellcap that hand carried our luggage...

Amazing views. The property is very well kept. We took the shuttle to the private beach. What a great beach. We were surrounded by monkeys, turtles, saw crabs and hermit crabs. Great lunch and drinks on the beach. We will be back again.

We made reservations for dinner in the hopes of seeing the sunset but since it is the rainy season in Costa Rica at the time, we did not get a good sunset. However, this did not take away from the amazing experience. Instead of the sunset,we were able to basically have the rain forest come to us. It was misty,...

This is an extraordinary place, and we've been to many boutique hotels in Mexico, the Caribbean and the South Pacific. The view is breathtaking, including both the Pacific and the jungle from your room balcony. A troop of white-faced Capuchin monkeys walked by our balcony one morning--just 20 feet from us. From the same spot we saw Scarlet Macaws and...

Went to have a drink and watch the sunset. Even though it was rainy season we had a beautiful quick glimpse of a Costa Rican sunset. Drinks are a little expensive but the view is worth it!

We visit Costa Rica almost annually. This is my favorite hotel to visit-- we usually make it the last leg of our trip, as its an easy drive to the airport.

Visited for 4 days and location is one of the best in the world. Sadly it's let down by one or 2 niggles. We booked 2 rooms and were allocated room 9&10 that are adjacent. Same price for both but massively different in space and room standard. Room 10 much bigger and has a great veranda. Room 9 is nice...
