This is probably one of the most beautiful places I've been to. The setting is amazing, but the views are what really make this place worth the money. Every morning I looked out of our window to see the mountains (from our own balcony). Every evening we went to one of three pools to watch the sunset. All meals where... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to spend our honeymoon and we were so blessed to find Villa Caletas online and book it! We purchased 10 nights, 9 days in room #20, a Master Suite and was so impressed. We had a private pool, a beautiful jungle and semi-ocean view, private terrace and a bed that is... More

We came in to the restaurant at 9.30 pm (open until 10pm) to grab something to eat and have a tea. Right at the entrance the manager (capitan they call him) said that THEY ARE CLOSING AT 10PM without even welcoming us with "good evening" or "hola" We said that's fine, so we still have time. We sat down at... More

Precipitous road (paved) up to a wonderful folly built in someone's idea of Victorian Tropical style....... Watch the sun go down from the infinity pool or the quasi roman amphitheatre (shades of Taormina in Sicily) have a drink on the terrace and just enjoy the view.

We had an absolutely amazing experience. The staff was very attentive and extremely nice. We came here for our wedding, and it was a very seamless process. It was one of the least stressful things I have ever done. Our wedding coordinator Grethel Jimenez was amazing! Our wedding was perfect because of her and the staff. Our family and friends... More

Our four day bachelorette party/mini vacation ended here at this beautiful Serenity Spa on top of the mountain overlooking the beach and forest. The spa experience was amazing. We got a facial scrub, body massage, and feet reflexology. You could hear the birds chirping, the leaves rustling on the branches, and the wind whistling. It was so relaxing. After the... More

Visited in August, 2014. In a word: incredible. The grounds are beautifully kept, the rooms are clean, and the views are magnificent. We stayed in a standard room and loved it. The large balcony with expansive views of the forest and ocean is awesome. The infinity pool is as advertised in the pics. The staff are very friendly. While you... More
