We had 3 days to spend after getting off a cruise in Caldera and before having to return to San Jose. After a lot of research, we decided on Villa Caletas and overall were very happy with our choice. It worked out well for us re location, amenities and the experience. One of us was not feeling particularly adventurous anymore... More

I have traveled to Costa Rica for vacation many times. Villa Caletas is simply the best small boutique hotel. The staff is super friendly, our room was immaculent and as other travelers have said, the view cannot be beat! We stayed in the largest suite which had its own pool, a den/office and two bathrooms. The privacy of this hotel... More

Have had two amazing dinners @ Villa Caletas. The view at sunset is one of the best dinning experiences I've had. We stayed in Los Sueños and came up for dinner both times. Food was very good as was the wine. Enjoyed a special treat of a toucan bird just below us during dinner.

We just stopped for lunch here, but it was the most beautiful place we visited in Costa Rica. And the food was amazing!!! The staff was so accommodating and friendly. If I go back to Costa Rica, I woud definitely stay here or at least eat here again.

The staff was friendly and helpful at exceeding all of our needs, quickly getting us settled in our room. We enjoyed the most delicious nachos at the sunset bar....dinner and breakfast... More

This place was just OK. It has potential to be so much more. The view of the sunset was spectacular. But everything else was just OK. The service all around was just OK, not nearly as friendly as the other places I visited in Costa Rica. The poolside drinks were made from mixes in jugs, not fresh. My mojito tasted... More

I celebrated my 50th birthday with my 3 best girlfriends at the Villa Caletas and stayed in the Junior Suite Superior - it was amazing! - Service & Security - everyone was very nice and friendly.
