We stayed 6 days in a junior suite for our honeymoon. I couldn't have asked for a better location. There's little better than relaxing in the hot tub on the balcony, while looking out on the Pacific Ocean, and listening to the sounds of nature. Upon entering the room we were greeted by a toucan in a tree. One night we saw a tree sloth in the tree off the balcony. We even experienced a thunderstorm from the hot tub on the balcony. It was amazing watching the storm roll in over the ocean, then seeing the mist rise off of the tree cover.
The sunsets from the infinity pool must be seen to be believed. Every night is a different show. The most striking was seeing a lightning storm beside the changing colors of the sun.
One thing to be prepared for is the cost of food and drinks at the otherwise excellent restaurant. We had lunch our first day there for $80 with two meals and two drinks. Expect to pay US prices. It is a resort, so you get what you pay for.
We hiked down to the private beach, which is another excellent feature of the resort. Be sure to find the waterfalls just off the path.
We loved Villa Caletas and are planning our next visit.
