The hotel is located in a gem spot. Most beautiful views and the grounds are gorgeous as well. Hotel feels very private, secluded from the rest of the country site. However the place could use a few improvements. SPIDERS !!! It be nice if they would at least try to take them down near room entrances and by the path... More

The main attraction of the hotel is its fantastic location. It is a wonderful complex with great views. It's great to see the sunset from the amphitheater and the beautiful pool. In general, the staff does its best to provide a good service, but it is not enough. I miss the warmth and conviction, which we saw in the rest... More

Villa Caletas is a beautiful, secluded small hotel on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific. A wonderful place to really get away for a time. We were there during the "rainy season" (in quotes since it barely rained at all during our stay), and due to hotel vacancies we were upgraded from a Junior Suite to Junior Suite Superior. Our large,... More

Subject: Villa Caletas Location: Jaco, Province of Puntarenas, Costa Rica, Central America Title: Room with a View ID#: 293470714 This hotel, has an old European feel. The room/suite was enormous as was our terrace. The hot tub on the terrace was great. The hotel needs some updating like new bedding/blankets, and perhaps a clock radio. The hotel is very hilly...

From the moment we made a right turn down the mile long, incredible, tropical, picturesque entrance, we knew we were in for a magical experience. Villa Caletas is a very special place. The staff couldn't be nicer. They gave us a free room upgrade without us even asking. Our view of the Pacific coast was breathtaking. Our room, although on... More

Beautiful boutique distinct hotel. View beautiful. Sunset block by clouds most days. Waiters Rainier and Jackson and other staff are nice and friendly. Outing canyoning repelling on the water fall outstanding. Infinite pool good for the kids. Need water shoe for private beach. Hiking down to private beach is strenuous. Need hiking boots or good shoes.

Villa Caletas was recommended from someone we met in the pool at Los Suenos hotel. Soooo glad we listened. We took our two kids (12 & 10) for appetizers in the "stadium seats" and watched the sunset. Spectacular! Dinner was to follow on the patio. Food and service was excellent. So much better than the mediocre food we had been... More

I choose this hotel at the last minute due to a change in travel plans. I picked the hotel due to the SLH rating in Costa Rica. We had stayed at other hotels on the list and they were fabulous. I found the hotel not worthy of the rating or the prices. The hotel was not well maintained. Many areas... More

Dear Friends, thank you for your review. We are obviously not feeling well after reading your comments. Even if our maintenance staff does a wonderful job, from basic to technical tasks, we still use a local window service and have to order the glass custom cut. It takes some time here like many other things that are not addressed directly... More

We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a regular villa for a friend's wedding. The only flag I'd raise is that guests should be aware of the amount of walking up/down steep hills and stairs needed to navigate the resort. If you're in shape, no problem! Some of the less in shape folks in our group were struggling. Other... More

Dear Friend, thank you very much for your review. It is true that the hotel is located on the top of a mountain, 300 meters over the pacific ocean and the rain forest. To be in such a place there are some tribute to pay to mother nature !! : ). As you nicely say, our guests can contact us... More
