I had my wedding at Villa Caletas, and about 25 of my guests also stayed there. We arrived a day before our guests, so I loved seeing a new batch of jaws drop each time new guests arrived. Everyone loved it and had an excellent time - so whether the guests came as couples, families, or groups of friends, Villa... More

We got the super suite in the separate building. Our room is on the second floor from the top, which has a huge / gigantic terrace - must be well over 1,000 sqft. Around 10~11 am each morning we were there, two beautiful scarlet macaws would mate on the tree to the left of the property and then fly in... More

Amazing, beautiful, relaxing, perfect! We had activities planned during the day, but I almost chose to cancel and stay at the hotel. It was just amazing! Perfect for our honeymoon and the staff were very nice and even left fresh flower petals on our bed :)

This is one of my favorite hotels inthe world. It is perched high on a mountain with sweeping views of the ocean. The private villas are well appointed, the flora and fauna are everywhere you turn. When lounging in the negative edge pool, it seems like you are sitting on top of the world and visually could float right out... More

Its on a cliff that is breathtaking. Its so tropical and beautiful, the place is a real gem. I thought for the price, I got way more than expected. We were only there for one night and we were so happy. Breakfast, get the plantains with natilla. So good.

This place was a gem! It's nice because it's easily accessible by major hwys but far inland that you can't hear anything but the wilderness. The resort is located at the top of the hill and nested nicely in a rainforest setting. However, let me warn you if you're afraid of critters and insects... There are tons! Highly recommended bringing... More

It took my breath away as we walked into our garden suite! It was beautiful and the view was amazing! The people that worked there were very friendly and cleaned the rooms thoroughly. I would refer Villa Caletas to anyone traveling to Costa Rica!!!!

THIS IS THE BEST HOTEL IN COSTA RICA! I stayed in a beautiful villa with a direct view of the tropics and the ocean. The above average hotel staff were from start to finish, the most pleasureable group of people. When I arrived, I was greeted with a much needed cold towel and fresh iced tea! Then I was driven...
