The resort is very beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. One of the restaurants was closed so there was limited dining. Our waiter at the one restaurant, Norman, was excellent. The hotel offers the best of two resorts as you are on top of the mountain for a beautiful view of the rain forest, but you can... More

We spent 3 nights at Villa Caletas, and don't regret it! We went there as a couple after having spent 5 days visiting the natural parcs in Costa Rica. We had a standard room, but even the regular room was great, well decorated, super clean, with a nice balcony. The hotel is located in the rainforest, which makes it very... More

My friend and I came here for a quick getaway and overall, it was very relaxing. There's not much going on - there are a couple of restaurants but they close early and there's no entertainment. For us, it was a bit too quiet and isolated, and too far from other sites. But for couples looking to just relax, it's... More

We had an excellent lunch there as part of an animal tour there 4 days ago. The location and establishment is stunning. Elygen was our waiter and did a great job. Joevanna was our tour guide and provided well informed commentary at this hotel and throughout the tour.

The "Villas" aré beautiful with a jacuzzi outside and so private, the infinity pool has an amazing view, the food was delicious and Jocksan was great attending us at the restaurant, so kind, and made us feel good. The spa looks nice too, and the service to the beach was good, it is a very quiet beach. So satisfied!
