We stayed at Villa Caletas at the recommendation of our travel planner at Costa Rica Expeditions. The hotel and property are so beautiful and our stay exceeded our expectations. We had a junior suite with a jacuzzi on the balcony, and a gorgeous view of the rainforest and the ocean beyond. The views from the restaurant, the beach and the... More

The hotel is beautiful and the staff was fantasitc. The views are breath taking. We stayed in room 4. It was nice to be close to the pool, resturants, and spa. The room was large with a great balconey overlooking the ocean/bay. Highly recommend seeing the sunset from the ampatheather (or even the infinity pool). The private beach is good... More

What a fabulous resort! Attention to every detail! From arrival to departure the staff was very attentive. We visited the spa for one of the most luxurious massages. We wandered the beautiful property enjoying the toucans, hummingbirds and the stunning views. We made the best choice staying here for our 30th anniversary!

We stayed 6 days in a junior suite for our honeymoon. I couldn't have asked for a better location. There's little better than relaxing in the hot tub on the balcony, while looking out on the Pacific Ocean, and listening to the sounds of nature. Upon entering the room we were greeted by a toucan in a tree. One night... More
