Reasonably priced big rooms. Very Friendly and... More

This was a wonderful place to stay with everything one might need. Too bad other guests were smoking outside though. They board horses on the property and have beautiful grounds. There is a winery next door and a great restaurant within a five minute walk.

My second stay at Acara and another amazing experience. A very relaxing environment and an excellent centre for visiting surrounding places of interest. Fiona made us very welcome and even recommended and booked restaurants for us. Have already booked for next year!! Thanks for helping with the cycling!!
