Small boutique resort with very intimate setting and an attentive staff that provided excellent service and made us feel special. The rooms are so private that you feel like you are all alone at the top of the mountain. The views are stunning and the small details make a big difference. The amitheater designed to watch the sunset, the private... More

Resort has beautiful views and accommodating staff. Navigating many stairs throughout the resort is a requirement as it sits atop an elevated region overlooking the Pacific. Beautiful views for dinner and breakfast from the deck overlooking the amphitheater.

Villa Caletas is in a class of it's own! The moment we arrived were greeted by our hotel provided driver whom welcomed us with a very warm smile.

We just got back from our honeymoon at Villa Caletas, at was just the perfect place for us to rest and recover! The hotel knew we were on our honeymoon, so they upgraded us to room #88, a Junior Superior Suite. It was PERFECT. It was a big room, but the best thing about it was the balcony. It overlooked...

This place is spectacular. We rented a casita with its own pool and a view of the heavenly Jaco coastline. The food was great, the staff friendly, and the sunset breathtaking. The architecture is amazing, the workmanship is all first class, with a very european feel. The Sunset Amphitheater just below the restaurant is worth the price of admission. Would... More

This hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel located near Jaco beach. To get to this very secluded gem, we drove up this winding road to the top of the ridge, where we were enchanted by the architecture and views. The only thing up there was the hotel and it's various buildings. We were given a room with views from our... More

This was certainly one of the best vacations I've had. The private accommodations with ocean view was incredible. The Villa staff (the creative towel animals) and Villa restaurant staff especially (yes, I must be that specific) went above and beyond to ensure our experience would be one to remember and cherish. As Georges G. said, ( my other half) we... More

Amazing views of the beach, top notch food and great service. Plus, very private accommodations which are great for couples. It's expensive, but very worthwhile. The beach itself isn't the best, but there many great places that are a quick drive away.
