The ideal place for your Costa Rican vacations!


Villa Caletas is a luxury boutique hotel inspired by tropical colonial architecture, with a touch of neoclassical influence. Reflecting the eccentric, colorful style of French owner and interior designer, Dennis Roy, the property is chockablock with artifacts, from European art and oriental rugs to terracotta masks and a host of Latin American earthenware.

Located on a rainforest hilltop in the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica, it is prized not only for its location near Jaco beach, but also for its outstanding facilities and first-class service. Views of lush tropical rainforests complement some of the most breathtaking sunsets you will ever see, while pairs of Scarlet Macaws fly overhead.

At the bottom of the mountain, Villa Caletas is fortunate to have its own private beach. Guests are welcome to soak up the sun, either in the secluded volcanic-sand cove or up the mountain, at one of the hotel’s magnificent infinity pools.

The stand-alone Zephyr Palace is located within the grounds of the hotel.  Surrounded by rainforest and nestled on top of a hill, this spectacular mansion affords panoramic views of the Gulf of Nicoya.

Romance, luxury and comfort are the words that best express the essence of the living quarters at Villa Caletas. The hotel has 52 rooms and suites, proffering views of tropical gardens, mountains and panoramic vistas of the Pacific Ocean. From Standard or Deluxe Rooms through to Suites, guests will enjoy spacious terraces, private hot tubs and all the comforts of a luxury hotel.

The 12 Villas are spread throughout the property, offering guests the privacy to enjoy the sounds of the rainforest, and even have breakfast delivered by room service.

The Superior Suite was designed with honeymooners in mind, featuring a private deluxe plunge pool overlooking both the rain forest and the ocean.

The Master Suites are the epitome of elegance, comfort and privacy. They all possess a spacious terrace with lounge chair, hammock, dining table, and a private infinity plunge pool with panoramic ocean view.

And if you enjoy period styles, the Zephyr Palace has seven themed luxury suites, such as New WorldEgyptian or Oriental, all offering breathtaking views of the Nicoya Gulf. Each and every detail of these suites has been carefully chosen to transport you to a different place and time.

Infinity Pool & Serenity Spa

Back on the mountain, a lagoon-like infinity pool, complete with its own waterfall and full-service bar, creates the illusion of being one with the Pacific Ocean and for total relaxation, the Serenity Spa offers massages, body treatments and facials, all with organic Costa Rican products to rejuvenate the skin and heal the mind.

Pelicano Beach Bar & Restaurant

El Pelicano Beach Bar and Restaurant is open on the hotel’s private beach from 9 am to 4 pm, serving lunches, snacks and refreshing tropical drinks. Shaded gazebos with beach loungers are provided for guests, as well as a Jacuzzi, showers and restrooms. An hourly transfer runs back and forth from the hotel.

Skin & Beauty Salon

Situated on the hotel grounds, the Bella Vista Hair and Beauty Salon offers a professional service for weddings and special occasions, or everyday glamor. The salon also offers a body-spray tanning service.

Fitness Center

And in case you need any motivation for working out, the Fitness Center benefits from what may be the best views of any gym you have ever visited.


The hotel’s Boutique stocks a selection of jewelry, souvenirs, gifts, and toiletries; and the concierge desk will help guests organize all their activities including tours, car rentals, plane tickets and private transportation.


The hotel has two restaurants. El Anfiteatro, a Greek-style amphitheater with spectacular Gulf views, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner outdoors on the terrace. The same landscape provides the backdrop for candlelight dinners at the elegant El Mirador Restaurant.


Traveling to the hotel’s private Caletas Beach is an adventure in itself, as four-wheel-drive vehicles descend the rocky mountainside path past iguanas, agoutis, macaws and monkeys. Energetic guests may choose to hike to the beach on the Friends of the Forest Trail.

The Villa Caletas private pebble beach offers a beautiful, wild area to relax and unwind, with wooden, curtained gazebos for ultimate privacy.
