We stayed 9 nights in room 10. It was very private with a beautiful view. It had 2 chairs and a sofa in the room. A big screen TV could be raised or lowered at the foot of the king size bed. Both sides of the bed had a lot of cabinets so my husband and I had totally separate...

For a solo traveler, two nights was the perfect amount of time to relax, enjoy the amenities and recoup for more CR adventure. Any longer and I would have been too bored. Here are a few tips I thought I would share: -if you are on a...

I just returned from a 3 night stay at Villa Caletas. It was magical! The views are just incredible from the rooms, pool and restaurants. The infinity pool is peaceful and has equal parts shade and sun. The food was reasonably priced considering the location. Our room was clean and well maintained. The walkway to the rooms/suites feels like something...

I love the view and nature around Villa Caletas, but the hotel is not in the best conditions, the rooms are very old, beds are not in good shape. The room amenities are poor and the AC makes a lot of sound. The restaurant is very good but very expensive compared with other better hotels in the area like Marriott...

Dear Friend, thank you for your review. Even though we understand that all taste are around we are quiet sad and puzzled for the use of the word "Dirty". It is almost insulting for all our dedicated staff that spend hours to be sure that each and every corner of the hotel is ready to received our guests. From main...

We just came back yesterday from a stay at Villa Caletas. I stayed for 3 nights with my 6 year old son, my sister, and her 7 year old daughter. We all thought that the hotel was absolutely amazing in every way! It sits up high on a mountain overlooking the ocean and rainforest. We had a junior suite, which...

We had an excellent 3 night stay at Villa Caletas in mid-April. The hotel is beautiful with an amazing infinity pool and nice private beach. The prices are a little expensive for drinks and food, but well worth it!

This trip with my best friend was all that I could imagine. The photos online cannot do it justice. The staff was amazingly nice, but do not be cheap on the tipping. Notable staff were Jockson (restaurant) and Giovanni (bellhop). We had a Junior Suite Superior, which was well worth its price. The room was very spacious, and the bathroom...
