“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

This place was incredible. The views, the landscapes, the pool, the food, the service all top notch!!! Great couples getaway. It is a bit isolated so you need to have your transportation set up, but totally worth it!!!

We dropped into this hotel for lunch and stayed for 6 nights! We initially said we would stay 2 nights and then loved it so much, we ended up staying for another 4. The view over the estuary and ocean are spectacular, with superb sunsets. The staff (particularly Alberto and Alonso) were brilliant. The hotel only has a few rooms but seems to rarely be full. It is very comfortable with a lovely warm infinity pool. Coyote beach is a short drive away and has miles of deserted sand. We also had a great kayaking trip up the river looking at birds and the occasional croc. Erick the Turtle man was a mine of information on flora and fauna during the kayak trip.

Room Tip: Room 5 opens onto pool and has views down the estuary

We had four wonderful nights and five days at this special place. Our room had a jacuzzi on the pouch which was wonderful. At night we gaze out to the ocean, with the river flowing next to the hotel and the clear stars above, it was bliss.

The rooms are large and nicely finished with a nautical theme. The staff is accommodating.

The views are fantastic!

If you want a place away from it all, this is it. Very remote. Beach is great for swimming along with the mouth of the river.

If you want quiet, remote and relaxing, who could ask for more.

We where in Casa Caletas in 2011 and we had the most awesome time there!
Fiorella is a girl who was working there and she really made us feel at home and she is the most adorable person! The room where we staid had a very nice view over the river and the ocean. It was very clean and beautifull decorated. The breakfast was great and full of nutricion so we could surf all day long.....:-))
We will defintely be back someday soon!

Located a little bit away from playa Coyote, the location of the hotel makes it perfect for enjoying the sunset without the surfers and tourists around. The access to the nearby river allows for observing wildlife - pelicans, monkeys, iguanas, etc.

The resultant served very tasty food, fresh fruit juice and ice-cold beer.
The room we've got (N1) is quite big and very clean. We did not have a "hot" water in the bathroom but the pipe water was very refreshing after 4-5 hours driving.
The staff was friendly and helpful.

The location is stunning overlooking the estuary. The view changes constantly as the tide moves. We both had the entire fish red snapper which was the special of the evening, and were very pleased with the selection. Staff was very friendly and efficient. The hotel had no guests that evening, so we had the place to ourselves. The grounds were immaculate and we both remarked that we would stay here. We plan on going back this week to sample a Tico breakfast.

We just got back from two nights at Casa Caletas. We booked the Junior Suite which had a jazuzzi tub on the little terrace, and the best views in the house. The room was ample, with a lovely big bathroom, a mini fridge, and a king sized bed. The bed was firm, and I slept really well, especially as the curtains blocked out most of the morning light.
There are definitely lots of bugs around, which doesn't bother me too much, it is Costa Rica after all, and nothing some bug spray doesn't fix.
The reception/ kitchen/ wait staff were incredibly accommodating, friendly and easy going. The reservation process was a little confusing as my emails were being forwarded to their sister hotel in Jaco, and hopefully the owners identify this problem to avoid the same happening in the future... but it wasn't a big deal.
The pool is gorgeous, with an incredible view of the river/ ocean. The dock was a big hit for the kids to go fishing on for hours. They have kayaks you can rent to explore the estuary, and they are close to a good surf break or two.
This was a weekend getaway for a friend's 40th birthday, we were 5 couples, plus about 9 kids and it was the perfect weekend away. The food and drink prices were very fair, breakfast was included (the typical or continental) but I ordered the omelette which was delicious.
Thanks Casa Caletas staff for making this a memorable mini-vacation!

Room Tip: The Junior Suite is worth a few extra $$...
