A Fabulous Weekend
This was just a quick, solo, weekend stay before a business trip and I thought the facility was outstanding. The room number of my suite was 34. It was a large, decadent suite with a huge bathroom, shower, and jetted tub inside and a nice hot tub out on the patio as well. The patio was a beautiful place to start my mornings with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in the afternoon. I took the trail down to the beach one day which I really enjoyed. They provide walking sticks if you like, but I didn't grab one. I did it in my Chaco sandals and it took me about 45 minutes with many stops for photos and to enjoy the wildlife and views. I would warn that the the trail is fairly steep and treacherous in places with dry leaves making the trail slippery. I didn't have any falls, but if you're unsteady on your feet, this trail is not for you. I enjoyed a few drinks down at the beach and the staff down there is amazing. I just took the shuttle back up the hill. As for dining options, I thought the food was of a reasonable standard, but the serving staff was not. No classical fine dining training for the staff at either of the two restaurants. The service was choppy and teamwork was non existent. I very much enjoyed many cocktails presented at the bar. I found it very unprofessional that only designated staff could print checks and accept payment in the bar though. The sunset from the bar is not to be missed. If you're someone who enjoys a glass of wine in your room, bring your own.

The woman at check in was very rude. Every time we encountered her she was rude. Everyone else was very kind and hospitable. It’s too bad one person can ruin an otherwise nice experience.

Hotel Villa Caletas
Beautiful resort.....BUT about 100 steps to get to our rooms and no bathrobes were provided. We did not receive a key to our safe, so maintenance had to come to our room to fix the problem. The resort is truly beautiful.

Very good 8.0
We stayed here for 6 days over New Year 2020. Amazing location, good food, views are incredible. Beach isn’t really a beach as such - there is no sandy slope to the sea - but still a lovely spot to hang out for the day with private cabanas and a bar. Unfortunately the service was generally terrible. Time after time we had to ask twice or more for food, drinks, even the bill. No towels at the pool on ANY day we stayed there - we had to ask once or twice and wait for 5-30 minutes each time. We ordered room service once, called to ask for the leftovers to be collected as they say not to put them outside because of insects/animals. Understandable. But no one came despite me calling twice, so we spent the night with leftover burgers in the room. NOT 5-star. Oh, and 1.5L of water is $7. Not guest friendly when the nearest shops are 20-30min drive away. Really disappointing for what is a stunningly situated hotel up in the hills overlooking the sea. There is a general sense of “manana” about the place, no one really seemed to care about the guests that much. Shame

Amazing anniversary vacation
Great place to stay. My husband and I went for our anniversary. Very relaxing and quiet. The restaurant was delicious. ($30-$80 2 ppl) Drinks were good. Infinity pool was Beautiful and so were the grounds. The private beach was very peaceful but very rocky. Best of all was the views and service. Can’t wait to return.

AMAZING. Easily the best hotel in Costa Rica. The views are incredible, the restaurant is fantastic and the staff are the as courteous and helpful that you'll likely experience. The entire property is meticulously well kept and the facilities (especially the infinity pool) are really great, they even have a private beach (although there is not so much sand, so if that's important to you better to go to Jaco). We didn't need to leave the property at all, making it a truly relaxing stay. If you're looking for an amazing experience by the beach in Costa Rica, this is the hotel for you!
