"Exquisite and magical."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This was our third stay at Hotel Villa Caletas. There is no place like it in Costa Rica. It is beautiful, elegant and peaceful. The service is excellent (A++) and the rooms are out of this world. We will always stay here when we are in CR. Thank you!

"Great Location"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We got married here and loved the venue. Great for pictures and very romantic. We only had one restaurant to choose from which was why we rated it a 4. Getting in and out to the city for dinner can get very expensive so you felt stuck. The staff is amazing and gave great attention to excellent service.
