    Lovely place, good food and a nice free breakfast. Nice chilled vibe when we were here. Also, the chef Fernanda, cooked us an amazing burger when we first arrived. Every hostel should have a Fernanda!

    WOW! What a hostel. I don't usually write reviews but I just had to this time. exceptional cleanliness and great beds, plug sockets, curtain, good shower, air conditioning in the room. Great value for money with a nice breakfast included. But the STAFF! They were so helpful and nice, good conversation and funny too! Specifically Michelle, she was so welcoming and always had a smile on her face. She went the extra mile to answer all my questions and really made my stay, she needs a raise! Thanks!

    Chilled atmosphere with good facilities. Bar and pool area are nice to chill around in the evenings. Staff are really friendly and go out of their way to help. A little bit out of town and the area seemed a bit sketchy at night. Overall a good stay and would stay here again!

    The AC is only in from 8pm to 8am. It is freaking hot during the day and evening!! Beds are very soft - too soft and also a little soggy. But it's clean. Showers aren't hot but not freezing cold either. Staff is beyond friendly and helpful. I could store part of my stuff there for a week for free until I came back to santa marta. Lovley areas to hang out and chill. I liked it.

    Staying at Cacao was a great experience. Staff was very nice, Michelle was wonderful and helping. It is a quiet place, so you can rest with no problem or noise at all. It is not the closest place to the bay, but still you can walk there with little effort. Breakfast was so so.
