We recently stayed at Villa Caletas as one stop of many in our stay in Costa Rica. The sunset views are spectacular and the grounds are very nice, but overall our experience was disappointing. If you have any desire to spend time in Jaco this is not the place for you, it is a $40 round trip cab fare away. It does have a private beach, but it is mostly rocky and doesn't measure up to some other more beautiful and sandy beaches in Jaco and neighboring areas close by. We also found members of the staff, specifically the front desk to be the least friendly and inviting people we encountered in our 10 day trip. Overall, the resort comes across a lot more pretentious and impressed with itself then we thought was warranted. With all of the wonderful places you could stay in Costa RIca we think you can do better.
