We had an amazing stay in this quaint little hotel just 5 km away from Jaco Beach. We rented a car which I recommend to get to town and back. We had a junior suite with a personal jacuzzi overlooking a phenomenal view of the town and ocean. Great food, friendly service, and beautiful room. The concierge also got us... More

My friend and I visited Villa Caletas with a Groupon. I do hope the Villa offers this again via Groupon. I would love to return. It is a wonderfully unique older establishment with 5 star service. We wanted a quiet place with scenery, good food and drink. We received so much more. We rented a car in San Jose which... More

We had sunset drinks and dinner at Caletas. I can't speak to this place as a hotel as we didn't stay there overnight but if you are in the Herradura/Jaco area I'd make sunset here a must do. The view is spectacular. I will note that if you are a nervous driver the ride up to the hotel is steep... More

This was our first time to Costa Rica. We stayed in a Junior Suite at Villa Caletas for four days. We absolutely loved it. The hotel is very unique, extremely private, with amazing views of the ocean. I can't say enough about the views from our room!! The food at the restaurant was good but a little pricy. The private...

My husband and I visited VC in June 2014 via a Groupon Deal. The views from our room (30) were amazing! Our room/bathroom were spacious. The staff/service were excellent. The food was great.

Amazing room with exceptional views of the extensive coastline and the best sunset views in the country. The service is outstanding. The one exception is the incredibly disappointing spa. We went to the spa to book appointments, but the office was empty. We spent much of a day calling the office, trying to book appointments, but either nobody answered or... More

Had a wonderful experience. The hotel was charming and peaceful. Staff very helpful and kind. And no complaints with food or drinks. Touring the grounds of the property and trail to the beach is a must do. Saw all types of wildlife. Overall, a fantastic experience.

This hotel could not have been any better. The staff was friendly, the grounds were beautiful, and the room was very spacious. We booked this hotel based off the reviews here on tripadvisor. The hotel is about 1hr and 20min from the San Jose airport so I arranged transportation through the hotel. I emailed them our flight itinerary and they... More

We traveled with our adult daughters and Jaco was our second destination in CR. Upon arrival at check-in gate, our family was impressed immediately as we began the 1 mile drive (well-lit & paved) up the mountain. The walk to our room (#14) was a little adventure in its own, seeing wildlife and animal sounds along the way. We had... More
