    A bit disappointing

    We were in the older style comfort studio, the main picture shows the new apartments. The studio itself was in need of a bit of a refurbishment, it was quite dark inside. The bathroom was small and again quite dark. Small things would make a difference to give a bit more comfort, there is only 1 bedside table and lamp for the double bed, the safe is in a very awkward position on the floor in the bathroom, some of the cookware needs replacing as it was well used. The pool was nice but is too small for the amount of guests staying, only 4 sun beds around it and only 2 of those had a shade. Pool towels provided but you’re not allowed to take them to the beach so recommend taking your own. The property is close to the beach and many restaurants and the shops. Free secure parking.

    Convenient studio

    The place is a beautiful villa with a nice courtyard and salt pool. The studio was clean, bed comfortable and kitchen well equipped. It’s less than 5 minutes from the beach. Hosts were very helpful and friendly.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    With lush landscaping, a nice pool, and friendly staff, Villa Cacao is an excellent option when visiting the Santa Teresa area. The hotel is safe and secure, with sufficient onsite parking behind a locked gate. We stayed in a spacious two-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, large living area, and comfortable lanai. The beach is a short 200 meter walk away, and close to everything Santa Teresa has to offer.

    Tranquil retreat

    Villa Cacao provides a beautiful, tranquil, and nicely appointed retreat in Santa Teresa. Be aware if you are travelling from the ferry in Paquers, it's over an hour's drive on very rough roads. What awaits at the end of the difficult drive is totally worth it.

    Bra boende för familj i Santa Teresa

    Väldigt trevligt boende i Santa Teresa. Vi bodde fyra personer i deras apartment. Bra terass, ren pool och lugnt och skönt. Mest uppskattade vi den trevliga atmosfären både bland övriga gäster men framförallt personalen som verkligheten fick oss att känna oss välkomna.
