We had breakfast at Anfiteatro Bar and Restaurant. The Shrimp Burrito is amazing! We had a party of 14. The view is breathtaking! It's beautiful. The prices were very reasonable as well, especially since we were not guest of the hotel and just went for breakfast. Fun ride up the mountain as well.

Villa Caletas is a quiet and elegant retreat. This was our last stop in a two-week tour of Costa Rica, and a wonderful place to end our vacation. Our room had a large balcony and hot tub, with great views of the valley below. Birds singing in the morning, bright stars at night. Watching the sunset from the edge of...

This is a beautiful and unique property. The view from our room was absolutely spectacular and our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable.

A gorgeous place for dinner and drinks to enjoy the breathtaking sunset. The service and food were top notch. It is a short drive from Jaco beach and is definitely worth the trip. The infinity pool is the best I've seen.

Las Caletas is a lovely hotel. The rooms are quite charming, and we always found everything to be clean, and shiny. The staff is eager to please. We never saw anyone who appeared to not be having a good day. The pool was clean, and pool service was pleasant and pretty attentive (they could have been a little more proactive...

Private infinity pools, great food. They do need to update their bathrooms. Not quite enough for a 5 stars. Staff is mostly friendly. The beach is a 10 minutes ride from the hotel and you will need your shoes to walk on the beach ( pebbles ) but at least it is private.
