Mariana who is absolutely amazing to deal with and on top of her skill set up our entire wedding for us. We chose the beach for the setting of our ceremony and it was amazing.

We just had our 25th anniversary and booked the honeymoon suite #29. Wonderful. Loved the hotel, people were fabulous. I know it was off season but the service at the pool or lack of it was my only complaint.

Villa Caletas and Zephyr Palace are by far one of the most luxurious properties in Costa Rica. I participated in a FAM trip and had the privilege of touring some of Zephyr Palace's unique suites. Each one is different and offer unmatched amenities--from private jacuzzis to in-room gyms and spas. The food was exquisite, and the sunset view over the... More

Villa Caletas is a total gem hidden up in the clouds! Everyone was beyond friendly and it was the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. The hotel staff was more than accommodating to us. We had an airport hiccup and had to postpone our trip for two weeks time. The day of our supposed arrival, the hotel was able to... More

We stayed in a Jr. Suite. Large room with potential of sleeping 3 people comfortably. Parking was an issue. Also we booked a room with an ocean view with Trip Advisor but didn't have an ocean view. When asked, the hotel staff stated there was no guarantee of room with an ocean view. Restaurant was overpriced for the quality of... More

Beautiful hotel nestled in the rainforest. The hotel is located 2 miles off the roads in the mountain. Beautiful views of the rainforest, mountains and ocean. Didn't get to see the famous sunset due to overcast but truly stunning hotel. Food at hotel was much better then outside. Zip-lining and waterfall climbing very fun.

My daughter and I had a wonderful escape. Beautiful view from our private patio and incredible sunsets. Service was outstanding and food was divine. The infinity pool and setting was amazing. The beach is rocky but the trip is worth it. Easy access to all of the nature trips
