Jaco vicinity luxury beach hotel

We are trying to decide between Villa Caletas or Alma del Pacifico Resort at the end of May for 3days. Any advice?

Villas Caletas is not really a beach hotel as it's perched high on a hilltop overlooking the coastline. Alma de Pacifico is much smaller but it's right on the beach south of Jaco. Suggest you check out hotel reviews and traveler photos on this website for both spots and see which appeals to you most.

Villas Caletas …is very much what you are looking for…incredible location and just 20 minutes from Jaco…well now days and for a few more days…maybe longer since a road repair around there…but no t a big deal..

Villa Caletas is beautiful, but as CRfan says, it's not on the beach. Alma is on the beach and has big beautiful rooms, but is in a pretty isolated area and there is not much around it.
