English translation:dripping effect
Explanation:
It is a guess as I have never seen it before, but I imagine gotele comes from gota (drop) and has been "frenchised" as in gouttele. So, I would translate as drip(ping) effect...
Hope it helps...

structured stucco


Explanation:
Gotelé seams not to be a trade mark.
There are some LAm sites with "gotelé stucco" like one that follows:


BUILDING SPECIFICATION CLUB DE CAMPO
BUILDING SPECIFICATION CLUB DE CAMPO

(RESERVA DEL HIGUERON). Finish, Floors, Walls,
Ceilings. Dining Room, Stoneware, Gotelé stucco, No false ceiling, without plaster. ...
activares.net/higueron/building_1.htm

Phraseology with gotelé in Spanish:

...pintura gotelé
...acabado gotelé
...pintura gotelé de gota fina

(Google)

Should be stucco with drop-like structure.
