I found an amazing deal on Groupon where the cost of 3 nights were just shy of ~$400 USD (last night was free). I wish I stayed here all 3 nights!! Here are my reasons why:... More

We went to Villas Caletas for a birthday dinner celebration, and it did not disappoint. Very beautiful vista of the sea and sunset, and the facilities have more ambiance than anywhere else in Costa I have been. Truly a great spot for a great dinner.

My wife and I loved this place. It was literally on top of a mountain overlooking the jungle and ocean. Every day, we saw wild Parrots, Tucans, and other gorgeous wildlife. The walk down to the beach through the rainforest was the coolest experience. Our funnest part was taking the private boat tour from www.MachoFishingTours.com. The hotel recommended them and...

This hotel is in a great location in tropical rainforest with fantastic views of sunsets ideal for taking a cocktail. Our room was clean and good and we had a plunge pool. We were disappointed with the food quality which was more akin to TGIF than a 5 star hotel. The main French restaurant was closed during our stay, so... More
