My husband and I stayed in a villa at Villa Caletas for 7 nights. Overall, it is a beautiful hotel and our view was jaw-dropping. The view from the restaurant and pool is amazing, too. The staff are very friendly! However, when it came to daily life in the room, the bed, though very large, was hard & uncomfortable enough... More

Small boutique hotel. Our travel agency booked a Jr Suite but it's done in a French style, however it was ALL very PINK. It was well appointed and comfortable, but PINK. The view is amazing. The restaurant was HIGHLY overpriced and we waited constantly for water... we paid for each bottle but it was like you're only allowed 1 or... More

Place was great, food was great, staff was friendly, private beach is awesome. Real quiet, so if you want an active place this is not it. Did not use spa but it looked top notch. Main pool is absolutely stunning.

Absolutely one of the most beautiful facilities that I have ever stayed. The service and staff were superb. This place is the epitome of hospitality and graciousness. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with hot towels and tea to the last thing we left with unparalleled service. The concierge booked us into excellent safe and reputable activities...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Incredible views and rooms. Love the villa we stayed in and enjoyed the gym, infinity pool, and beach. The private beach area is wonderful though a little hike or truck ride away.

The view is breathtaking. Great for bird watching w binoculars, saw 2 Scarlett Macaws and many unique bugs (one that looked like a roach but glows in the dark) .

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay. The staff is friendly. It is very quite and relaxing. The views are fantastic. The beach set up is amazing! We really didn't want to leave. We will definitely be back in the future. The restaurant is a bit overpriced, but aside from that, it is a truly wonderful place!

I've been to Villa Caletas a few times now. It never disappoints. This hotel boasts the highest views in the area - a sunset lovers dream. The food and service is wonderful! I highly recommend staying here, dining here or at least ordering a smoothie and soaking in one of the best sunsets you can find.

I first visited this restaurant last year. It is just simply breathtaking. I was with friends, and we went only for cocktails and the view. Recently, a customer was visiting Jaco, and this is where we took her for dinner. Not only was the food great and service even better, it is the view that makes this place magical. While... More
