The viewing area is resembled as an ancient Greek theatre. Everyone sits on the steps of the theatre and has a drink and watches...

We were really excited about staying at Villa Caletas, given that it is advertised as a boutique and luxury hotel. It's also in the same family as Hotel Grano De Oro in San Jose, which was fabulous. With that sort of distinction, you expect for there to be good service and great food. Honestly, we were disappointed. It may be...

I cannot explain in words how amazing this hotel is. We recently had our wedding there, and we haven't stopped hearing from our USA guests how beautiful it all was.

Over the top bling, even to the point of overkill, if you can believe that! Setting of one of the main lobby is more like a mansion, with different rooms, for sitting, Billards, tv, etc. We were first in room #1. A/c was leaking all over the place, & you needed to run it b/c there was an area 'burn-off...
