My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica for a late honeymoon. Villa Caletas was an amazing experience. The majestic views begin with your drive up the steep mountain to get to the front desk. Upon arrival, you are greeted with first class service. Our room was well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. The view from our balcony was phenomenal. The private Jacuzzi on the balcony was the perfect touch. The view from the amphitheater is so picturesque that is seems surreal. However, I will agree with previous posts that the food at the hotel leaves a little to be desired, but it is not awful by any means. I suggest taking an early morning walk down the mountain to the private beach. It is a wonderful walk and we saw a lot of wildlife(including monkeys). Also, Caletas beach is prettier than Jaco and Herradura beach by far. In all honesty, I was not in love with the town of Jaco, but Villa Caletas was so phenomenal that it makes up for what the town lacks. All in all this trip was the honeymoon of our dreams. We truly enjoyed the Costa Rica and Villa Caletas. We hope to return in the future.
Side note***While in Jaco, Lemon Zest is a must. The food and service is great and consistent (we went twice).
