We chose Costa Rica for our honeymoon and this resort did not disappoint. The views from suite 35 were amazing! It felt like you were in a mountaintop treehouse. We spent a lot of our time down at the private beach. The staff including the receptionist, the many people that brought us room service, the lady down at the beach restaurant, the pool drink bar gentleman, and Romón and his team at the Amphitheater Restaurant were all extremely kind and helpful. Everyone there made our stay a truly great experience!

We had our daughters wedding here at Villa Caletas, including having most of our guests stay overnight in the suites at Zepher Palace. We could not have been happier with the accommodations, the service and the food. In addition to the quality of Villa Caletas facilities, the service provided by Michael Alvarado was absolutely outstanding!! Michael was so incredibly helpful - honestly, he helped us put together a wedding that was for the rich and famous. He found us live music, fire dancers, everything we needed. If this is something you are looking for, definitely use Michael; he was amazing. And if you want to see a fabulous sunset, Villa Caletas is the place place.

Nice clean room with both garden and ocean view. Restaurant was outstanding with delicious options at fair prices. Pool is the infinity type but water was cold. Private beach was good with snacks and drinks available. Water access impractical due to sea wall. Spa was good. Hotel is best for couples and families not single travelers

I spent four days at Villa Caletas following dental surgery in San Jose. I could not have wanted for a better stay. The hotel has been designed with impeccable attention to both luxury and privacy. It blends seamlessly with the natural beauty of the surroundings from forest to ocean. Every member of the hotel staff is more than happy to attend to your every need and they are fully committed to providing the safest practices for the pandemic. At a time when we are all weary of the challenges facing the world, my stay at Villa Caletas was the perfect balm for my soul.

This was a great experience, we really enjoyed our stay. the facilities are great, and the views will take your breath away. The infinity pool has the perfect surroundings, always fresh with all the plants and trees making you feel cozy and relaxed. The beach section with is small roofed beach beds are perfect to spend the day. Everybody was very special, and following the COVID protocols and social distance, but Don Jairo Cruz in the pool section was the one who really made our stay perfect with his attention and kindness. He was always attentive to our comfort, making us feel like home, and made very good recommendations of what to do or eat.
