Villa Caletas is on the top of a mountain, great hotel, amaizing infinite pool. It is a 10 minute drive to Jaco, they have a very small beach down the mountain. Alma del Pacifico is actually in Esterillos a 30 minute drive from Jaco, closer t o Manuel Antonio and it is right at the beach.

Both are very nice hotels

Villa Caletas is a better hotel in my opinon, with outstanding views. The sunsets are the best in the area from the ampitheater at Villa Caletas. The downside is that it is not right on the beach, it is high on top of a mountain. If being ON the beach is important, then I would choose Alma Del Pacifico.

Based on having stayed at Villa Caletas and seeing the website for Alma del Pacifico, I would go with Villa Caletas. The view from Villa Caletas down to the gulf of Nicoya is breathtaking...one of the best views in Costa Rica. Their infinity pool is wonderful...I have never seen anything like it anywhere! Going down to their small beach is an adventure in itself...they will shuttle you down and up again. It's not really a good beach scenario...rocky, not really swimmable. Though we enjoyed lounging in their beach chairs and walking around the coastline. Buena suerte!
