Villa Caletas Review

Perched 1,200 feet above the sea on a promontory south of Punta Leona, these elegant rooms sequestered in the jungle have jaw-dropping views of the surrounding foliage and sea below. Spectacular sunset views should be enjoyed from the bar, even if you stay elsewhere. Freestanding suites and villas are gorgeous, but rooms in the main building are far inferior; if a villa isn't within your budget, do try to get a deluxe room. Victorian, French Colonial, and Hellenistic motifs are combined throughout, with Ionic columns, varied artwork, cookie-cutter trims, and cane chairs. The regular pool is rather small and chilly, but the Zephyr Palace complex has an impressive infinity pool with amazing views. The closest beach, Playa Caletas, is attractive, but small and rocky. Though a great place for romance or relaxation, this hotel has little to offer kids or active travelers.
