A very quiet, well located spot (about midway in the main street) with great hosts. Well taken care of with locked garage spots available. Pool has the sun most of the day. Easy access to the beach right in front.

We stayed in three different places during our 3 months in Santa Teresa, and Villa Cacao was by far the best. It is a beautiful and private hotel that is also centrally located near many good restaurants, grocery stores, shops and my favorite stretch of the beach. The owners are fabulous - super friendly and helpful. We were there with our 16 month old son and found it to be very family-friendly. We loved the pool and our private patio with a lovely garden, and the rooms were spacious and clean with a super comfortable King bed. Highly recommend it!

We stayed at villa cacao in the pink suite for two whole weeks, and we had the best stay. Jeffe, the owner, took great care of us. We loved everything with the place and would recommend it to anyone! We hope we can come back one day!

We stayed in this accommodation for 3 nights and it was amazing. Staff is very friendly. They can explain you what you can do in Santa Teresa and also provide a free map. The studios are very cosy, outdoor seating and a small kitchenette. The pool is very refreshing, although they could add more sunbeds. When we were there, they did some works on the roof. So if you want a perfectly quite hotel you might ask them if the works are done. They informed us beforehand about the works.
