My family stayed at Villa Caletas over spring break, and it was the most breathtaking experience. Breathtaking views of the ocean and rainforest, service, and food. We have 2 little girls, and they loved every minute. They had food the girls would eat, and the pool was amazing. We especially loved the little hot tub on our balcony. They took... More

My wife and I stayed at Villa Caletas for a wedding in March 2015. The Jaco area is not my first choice for a visit to Costa Rica because it is more crowded than some of the more remote regions, but as far as hotels go in the area, Villa Caletas is definitely among the best. You should know that... More

I can't understand anybody that posts a bad review about this fantastic place. Yes, for me it is a step up in class, I pushed the boat out a bit here. In terms of the stay and the room quality I could not fault it. The apartment had a whirlpool bath and outdoor jacuzzi/hot tub on the terrace with a... More

This place is absolutely amazing! This was one of the nicest hotels that I've ever stayed at. It is small, unique and well kept. The views are the best in Jaco. We were looking for a place that was private and quiet, and this was the perfect. The staff is amazing and they treat you like royalty. We stayed in... More

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.
