This place is absolutely amazing! This was one of the nicest hotels that I've ever stayed at. It is small, unique and well kept. The views are the best in Jaco. We were looking for a place that was private and quiet, and this was the perfect. The staff is amazing and they treat you like royalty. We stayed in... More

We stayed in a 2BR suite at the zephyr palace - felt like we were the only residents there . most people seem to stay at the attached / nearby Villa Chalets. The suite was large but slightly outdated and a little unkempt. The wrap around balcony with ocean views was unreal - you could not tear your eyes away... More

There is a very long driveway leading to the Villa Chaletas property. (check in at Villa Calletas) Very private with lush landscaping and lots of bird varieties. The "palace" is located beyond Villa Calletas. Impressive property with a spa, amazing views, there are hourly shuttles to take you to the almost private beach with cabanas and other services, the exercise... More

My daughter's wedding was here. The venue is gorgeous with fantastic views of the Pacific. Our wedding planner Our Costa Rica Wedding turned the pool area into a magical setting for the wedding. The reception area provides an elegant setting matching the properties formal "European Castle" decor. The service is top notch. The rooms provide excellent views and nice balconies... More

The palace sits on a hilltop and has breath taking views. The sunset view is stunning considering that you are watching it from your private jacuzzi attached to the room. We booked two suites namely Nuevo Mundo and Anos Veinte for Christmas 2014. Now for the fly in the ointment. The Anos Veinte room had very strong musty odor. Very... More

Beautiful is an understatement. One of the finest places I have ever seen or stayed at. The hospitality was outstanding along with all the amenities. Coming back next year! The pools are wonderful and the view and privacy from the room cannot be beat!

We could talk and praise this place for hours but you need to experience this place first hand, otherwise it's just talk. The good: We have found a piece of paradise, with a unique design, unmatched privacy and outstanding service. We've had the African suite for a week. The suite is a piece of art in itself, with original art... More

When my husband Jason first mentioned having a destination wedding, I was not thrilled about it. But I told him that there was one place that I had been in the world that I thought, “if I ever have a destination wedding, this is where it would be.” That was the Amphitheatre at Villa Caletas. Villa Caletas itself is high... More
