We just got back from our visit to Villa Caletas. It was one of four hotels we stayed in during our visit. Three of which were in the small distinctive hotel group. This was our least favorite of all. The views are beautiful from the outdoor balcony. The hotel is highly priced. For the price, all the other hotels included breakfast, and internet service. This hotel does not include breakfast, and internet is $4 an hour. It is out of the way, so you are almost forced to eat there unless you want to pay the expensive cab ride to and from town on top of the price of your meal. They advertise beach access, but let me tell you, it is not a beach one would use. First, you have to take the long scary drive down the cliff to the beach, this is NOT a walkable trip. Then, when you get to the beach, you realize that the water is not really accessible. There is a stone wall with steps you walk down to the water. It is rocky and rough with no easy access. We turned around and went back up.
I would not return to this hotel. It is pretty, but overpriced, and lacking amenities. If there were free transport to town, that would make it better.
