We recently hosted our daughters wedding reception at the Zephyr Palace at Villa Caletas. The best way to describe the entire experience is to say it was like being in a fantastic fairytale!!! Everything was better then expected. The rooms we(and all 44 guests) stayed in were beautiful and private with eye popping views, the food and views better then we could imagine! Online pictures do not do this place justice it's so much more beautiful in person! The staff was professional and went out of there way to make sure everything was what we wanted. Jockson followed our wedding party for several days tending to every detail of all the events hosted there. He was amazing! Maria del mar was so sweet and accomodating helping with reception. The food for every event and just regular meals while staying at Villa Caletas were wonderful! The wildlife and sunsets took our breath away everyday! This place should be on everyone's list of "must see"!!!

Room Tip: 17 beautiful private courtyard with plunge pool, 34,33, 14,15 all fantastic rooms with beautiful views

Check out the rooms, the place is off the chain, amazing rooms. Get inside Zephyr Palace.. unreal! Me and the gal stayed here in September 1-4, 2013. This place will blow your mind!! Infiniti pools everywhere, the staff is prompt, thoughtful sincere, and chosen for their timing! Get to Zephyr Palace, never seen anything like this place ever. Set on the mountain, errr hillside, every pool, whirlpool, hot tub and infinity pool has the most ridiculous view.

I think our room was the Honeymoon Suite. The panoramic views were breathtaking and our mini-infinity pool and the jacuzzi were well used on the deck.
We have lived in NYC and Los Angeles and traveled all over the world. Chef Ramon's food at the hotel restaurant was some of the best we have ever had. Every dish was outstanding: fresh seafood, interesting flavors, innovative ideas for both food and cocktails.
We were there at the beginning of the off-season which we thought was perfect: temperatures moderate and experiencing tropical thunderstorms from the cozy room was a highlight.

Room Tip: If you don't like climbing stairs, ask how far room is from restaurant and reception.

This could be a 4 or 5 star depending on what you want from your holiday.
If you are after a relaxing weekend...week.. without any connections, interruptions etc this is the perfect place . The views are amazing and so the infinity pools and you have all the privacy needed.
If you want to visit or go to the beach..this is the downside as you need to either hire a cab or rent a car.
So..for a romantic holiday..a 5 star as it is a perfect location.
For a beach and visiting..4 star.
Enjoy :)

I surprised my family with a long weekend birthday getaway at Villa Caletas and we could not have been happier with our stay. We stayed in a junior suite (superior) which was huge, accommodating easily our family of four. Our children adored having their own private jacuzzi and the semi-private pool a quick hop away. The views are gorgeous and we were so thrilled to be visited by monkeys, toucans and macaws. We ate often at the Amphitheater restaurant and enjoyed every meal, but especially breakfast with delicious fresh fruit and spectacular views. We also took advantage of the concierge who arranged a last minute zip line tour after our waterfall hike was rained out. All in all we were delighted with our stay and are looking forward to returning soon.
