Villa Caletas

Romantic hilltop boutique hotel with an incomparable ocean/sunset view. Villa Caletas is part of the Small, Distinctive Hotels of Costa Rica. Villa Caletas is a couples paradise in a spectacular setting with beautiful decor. A dramatic amphitheater overlooks the Pacific, and is perfect for concerts, weddings, and enjoying the spectacular sunsets. It also has an infinity pool and larger Suites with private pools.


Standard and Standard Deluxe Rooms

Very elegantly-appointed rooms in the main building of the hotel. The standard rooms at Villa Caletas (like all the rooms) are airy, modern, light and tastefully decorated. Not all standard rooms have good views, but all are spacious and cool. The main building sits at the highest point on the mountain. Standard rooms have 2 twin beds, whereas standard deluxe rooms have 1 queen bed. The standard deluxe rooms have partial ocean views.


Villas at Villa Caletas are slightly larger than the standard rooms and have a terrace. These units are spread across the mountaintop, so your view will vary depending on the villa's location. Set apart from the main buildings, the villas offer privacy but also require a short walk to the main amenities.

El Rancho

El Rancho is a 1 room beach bungalow on Caletas beach. With a large terrace complete with jacuzzi, you can lounge and listen to the ocean. The small kitchen and living room are below a mezzanine bedroom with 1 queen bed. For those who truly want to get away, this is located below the main resort with no tvs or phones.

Junior Suites

Junior Suites are spread throughout the resort with wonderful ocean views from their terrace. With 1 queen bed and sitting area, they provide more room and more elegantly appointed. Each suite will have a jacuzzi or jacuzzi tub for two. Superior Junior Suites are all located in a 4 story building with views of Herradura bay and a private swimming pool. They have 1 king bed, sleeper sofa, large closet and large jacuzzi tub. Each unit has a terrace with a freestanding hot tub.

The amphitheater is a stunning way to enjoy the sunset overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Often hosting concerts, this venue offers a one of a kind experience. The restaurant and bar are adjacent to the amphitheater, providing food and drinks.


Villa Caletas has a large pool with an infinity edge, giving the illusion of blending into the ocean below. A garden island and small waterfall add to the lush, tropical atmosphere. Drinks and lunch a la carte items are served poolside for the ultimate lounging experience


Mirador restaurant serves elegant dinners in a large spacious room bordered by floor to ceiling windows. Diners are rewarded with incredible views and artful food. Anfiteatro is the bar and restaurant near the amphitheater which overlooks the ocean with terrace dining from 7 AM to 10 PM. El Pelicano is the snack bar at Caletas beach, serving lighter fare in an informal setting.


The beach area below the hotel has a sandy terraced area bordered by a breakwater rock wall with the ocean surf located below. Where the water meets the shore, it is rocky with only a short swath of sand. The beach is very private with sunning beds, bathrooms, snack bar and showers. For the adventurous, you can hike on a rainforest trail about a mile from the hotel down to the beach. Shuttle service is offered on the hour during daylight hours.
