We stayed here a few nights and we really fell in love with the village, the manager Juan and the beautiful and simple yellow hotel. The hotel is right in the middle of the village, on a very quiet road. Juan is extremely gentle and helpful. He is always there when you have a question and he is a valuable source of information. The rooms are simple but clean and every day the rooms are cleaned and you get fresh towels. Next to the hotel is a great soda where you can eat a real costa rican breakfast and dinner. It's like a diner in a wild west movie. Women running the place and men on high chairs eating, cheering and watching the women working. Horses park there alongside the cars. We also rented fantastic horses adapted to our different riding skills (arranged by Juan).. And they brought them right to Cacao. This was a great way to experience the village and its surroundings.
The garden of the hotel is beautiful, with a wonderful view of the volcano. The service is wonderful and the price is very low. We highly recommend this place!
