For our wedding, we decided to take a trip to Costa Rica. The (now) Mrs looked everywhere for a place that had JUST that view and feel that she wanted, and settled on Villa Caletas. Boy, was she right. Villa Caletas is AMAZING. First, when you turn onto their drive, prepare for an ascent into the heavens. Caletas is built,...

My husband surprised me with a trip for my birthday, and we stayed at the Villa Caletas for 4 nights. It was amazing. We went in June, which is the rainy season. It would rain sometimes at night, and maybe half an hour in the daytime. The weather didn't hold us up at all. The staff was great! So friendly...

Me and my wife stayed in a Villa for 5 nights that we booked through Groupon.

My friend and I visited Villa Caletas with a Groupon. I do hope the Villa offers this again via Groupon. I would love to return. It is a wonderfully unique older establishment with 5 star service.

We had sunset drinks and dinner at Caletas. I can't speak to this place as a hotel as we didn't stay there overnight but if you are in the Herradura/Jaco area I'd make sunset here a must do. The view is spectacular. I will note that if you are a nervous driver the ride up to the hotel is steep...

This was our first time to Costa Rica. We stayed in a Junior Suite at Villa Caletas for four days. We absolutely loved it.
