This place has fantastic views. Starting with the infinity pool and the magnificent sunset accompanied by classical music, and continuing with beautiful flora everywhere! Every corner of this sprawling small hotel is touched with a loving hand and attention to details.
The room designs seem to be quite different from one another. No two rooms may be alike (we only saw our room and our friends’ and the catalog) but they are simply amazing. Worth upgrading since the price is still relatively reasonable for such a fabulous place. Our upgraded room had a lovely terrace with a warm jaccuzzi, a huge bathroom, a very large bedroom with a seating area—all beautifully furnished and fitted.
Villa Caletas has a private beach (requires driving or taking their shuttle) and it is nothing short of a scene from a movie, except that we were the stars. Upholstered canopied lounges and a private buffet where they make you seafood cervice or some exotic conconction of a drink made our day at the beach memorable.
The only thing this place needs improvement is the gym. The antiquated equipment was creaky, peeling paint, lacking basic technology. Every gym I know has replaced its equipment at least 8 times since this one had seen any change. Since our USA gyms sell their equipment cheaply each time they upgrade, it was baffling to me that Villa Caletas’s management has disregarded this part of their business.
