My wife and I just returned from a belated honeymoon at the incredible Villa Caletas.
You arrive and are greeted with cool towels and ice tea at check in. They help you to your room with a smile and make sure you want for absolutely nothing. The restaurants are wonderful and the servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Most of the staff are fluent in English making the experience that much easier for those nervous about traveling abroad and any potential language barriers. The Villas are beautiful, with exceptional views but the absolute best value at Villa Caletas comes int he form of their brand new Jr. Suites on the opposite site of the property. With room numbers in the 80's (ex. 85, 86, 87,...) these rooms are gigantic, clean, new (about a year or so old) and come with a hammock and private jacuzzi on their 100ft wide private terraces.
Traveling into Jaco for provisions (water bottles, soda, snacks) is only a $13.00/15 minute one wway trip. Complaints about the trip are without merit.
The infinity pool is perfect. The right temperatur, the right view, never crowded even when the hotel is fully booked, and with staff always available to bring you a drink or snack.
The spa has the same view as the infinity pool and is run in an efficient, clean, and very soothing way. Our couples massage was lovely and rivaled those we have found at big name spas here in the states.
Please do yourself a favor and stay here once in your life. You will talk about it forever.
