We were not having fun on the last leg of our trip, so we talked to one of the managers at the Los Suenos Marriott and she suggested that we rent a car. She got out a map and circled places that we should check out. This was the one she said we should go to for sunset. We got there a bit early and were so glad we did. It gave us a chance to tour the grounds and oh and ah about how beautiful and unique this hotel is, in fact it is a member of "small, distinctive hotels."
The bar is above the amphitheater that looks over an expansive ocean. We sat at one of the tables above the amphitheater and ordered delicious cocktails before the sun started its decent. Delicious cocktails, I should add, and very reasonably priced.
The waiters lined up pillows on the steps of the amphitheater to get ready for the big show. We were not disappointed. The clouds made for a spectacular sunset. Who ever thought to carve an amphitheater on that hillside was brilliant!
There is an infinity pool as well. We walked around it and just drank in the ambiance. Well done Villa Caletas! Well done!
There is a restaurant that we will try next time and perhaps book some nights at this hidden spot. We were so glad that we were sent to this Villa. Memorable. Special.
