This was our first time to Costa Rica. We stayed in a Junior Suite at Villa Caletas for four days. We absolutely loved it. The hotel is very unique, extremely private, with amazing views of the ocean. I can't say enough about the views from our room!! The food at the restaurant was good but a little pricy. The private...

My husband and I visited VC in June 2014 via a Groupon Deal. The views from our room (30) were amazing! Our room/bathroom were spacious. The staff/service were excellent. The food was great. The grounds were beautiful and relaxing. I will say that if you are someone who desires nightlife, does not enjoy nature, or has a physical disability, this...

Amazing room with exceptional views of the extensive coastline and the best sunset views in the country. The service is outstanding. The one exception is the incredibly disappointing spa. We went to the spa to book appointments, but the office was empty. We spent much of a day calling the office, trying to book appointments, but either nobody answered or...

Had a wonderful experience. The hotel was charming and peaceful. Staff very helpful and kind. And no complaints with food or drinks. Touring the grounds of the property and trail to the beach is a must do. Saw all types of wildlife. Overall, a fantastic experience.

This hotel could not have been any better. The staff was friendly, the grounds were beautiful, and the room was very spacious. We booked this hotel based off the reviews here on tripadvisor. The hotel is about 1hr and 20min from the San Jose airport so I arranged transportation through the hotel. I emailed them our flight itinerary and they...

We traveled with our adult daughters and Jaco was our second destination in CR.
