"Secluded paradise with top-notch staff found!"
This corner of paradise is a quick taxi and boat ride away from the Drake Bay airport, but feels like your own private island. Our family of four stayed three nights at Las Caletas, and wished we'd cancelled our next reservation and just stayed put. Situated just above the quiet, clean beach of your dreams, Las Caletas is all about service.
The staff is delightful and responsive to your every need, and the kitchen was at the top of their game for the duration of our stay. The meals are fresh, filling, and never repetitive, right through to dessert. The cocktail hour was a highlight, as I could sit with my drink of choice and watch the fireflies flit around the garden as the moon came up. Gregorio, their tour guide for our Corcovado day trip, was immensely informative about the flora and fauna of the country, as he studies biology at university, and has made a career of it. He took the time to discuss plants and animals we saw, and shared insights into viewing the most elusive of birds and animals on the Osa peninsula. Our dive trip to Caño Island, organized through Las Caletas, was another great success, and is a can't miss addition to your trip.
Our rooms were immaculate and well appointed, but an additional chair on the deck would have been well received. The beach is shared with the neighboring property, but excepting the arrival of guests by boat, I never saw more than two or three people on the beach at any time. It truly was our own patch of paradise. We'll be back!
