There is nothing on earth like this resort! Spectacular views, complete privacy, super awesome staff! I would recommend this resort to any couple looking for a romantic get away. This place is pure magic. Thank you Mr. Frenchman for creating such a beautiful place on earth. Your vision is absolutely breathtaking!

This hotel is in a stunning location, high in the rain forest overlooking the Central Pacific. Our villa was lovely -- we could see a wonderful display of nature from our window-- and the staff very friendly. The pool was lovely and I had the BEST massage ever at the spa, owned by a lovely American woman who hails originally... More

I cannot comment on the standard room I booked through booking.com at $116/night because, as the father of the bride, I was upgraded to suite 18 which was on the main level and had its own pool and deck - very sweet. The hotel is built on a hillside so most of the rooms require a healthy walk up or... More

My husband and I spent a magical anniversary weekend in Villa Caletas. Our junior suite was perfect, with a private jacuzzi and right in front of the pool. The views from everywhere in the hotel are magnificent, especially from the main pool and the amphitheater. We enjoyed our Caletas breakfast the most, as well as the Caletas cappuccino and our...

This is a truly remarkable hotel. Perched on a mountain overlooking the ocean, the rooms are spread out among buildings reached by beautiful paths. Our patio was suspended over the jungle and we watched toucans and other wildlife play in the trees. You can spend an hour just exploring the grounds. The hotel has a beach which is reached via...

I could go on and on about the beauty of Villa Caletas, and all the wonderful amenities, but just assume those are all excellent, because they are. My favorite part of staying here, by far, was the incredible staff of Villa Caletas! Every single employee here was GENUINELY friendly and helpful, and I found it extremely refreshing.

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

My friend and I decided to spend a little extra with this place since our other hotels were cheap. Let me start by saying it was absolutely beautiful!!!! The infinity pool has a view which is just amazing. We actually walked around the entire place. The drive in is beautiful, you're surrounded by plants and trees and statues. The food... More
