If I Have to Work Through the Weekend, at Least Give me a View to Remember

I attended my first Leadership Retreat 2 weekends ago. I wasn’t excited about working through the weekend but the hotel made up for it. I wasn’t expecting much since I was one of only a few who was booked for a single occupancy. My job took care of everything, including transportation via van, room, breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and snack.

We stayed at the Hotel Villa Caletas in Puntarenas Province, Jaco Costa Rica. The hotel is situated high in the mountains and has a private beach. Unfortunately, since I was there for work, I didn’t have time to go check out the beach. The room, however, was amazing and had the most magnificent views of the tropics and water in the distance. Just check out this video of the view…

The room was pretty big too, inclusive of a King size bed, 2 jacuzzi’s (1 on the balcony and the other in the bathroom), plenty of closet space and a changing room.

The hotel grounds aren’t bad either, inclusive of an infinity pool, amphitheater, spa, restaurant, bar and more.

The actual Leadership retreat was ok but I enjoyed the resort and plan to return leisurely. With the exception of the slow food service, the workers were all very nice and the golf cart was always available to transport you around the resort.
