Poor and very disappointing, where to begin, they were late picking me up at airport, noise place, food was limited and I was starving the whole time I was there. I would not go back, nor recommend. Sorry :-(

This ranch was a perfect location, excellent care from a kind nurturing staff and the food was incredible!!! My recovery was expedited as there are places to walk and the temperature is cool. The owners are wonderful and even provide a BBQ on Sunday's for all of us. This is the place to come!!!

CheTica, for me, is the kind of facility I needed to recover from extensive surgery. My first trip was in November of 2014, I stayed 13 days, my second trip was in February and March of 2015 when I stayed 5 weeks. The first thing you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you a... More

I recently returned from CheTica Ranch recovery center and I would like all that are considering plastic surgery in St. Jose that this is the best place ever! Each cottage has a special theme representing a different country.. I stayed in the Grindelwald cottage which was build to resemble a Swiss Chalet with fresh flowers in brightly colored boxes.My room... More

The owners are nice. I liked being in the country. The diesel food smell is awful in town. The Nurse Francis is outstanding. Magda the massage therapist is bar none the best ever! Now for the bad stuff. The food is good but no fresh pineapple and I was told we would have it everyday all I could eat. the... More

I've just returned from a 4 week stay at CheTica Ranch after having had multiple surgeries for skin removal due to a large weight loss. (Lower Body Lift, Arm Lift, Inner Thigh etc) . The owners Ruben and Lorena are the most Loving and Caring people, I immediately felt as though we were long lost friends! The staff reflects the... More

I will never forget relaxing outdoors and looking into the beautiful blue sky and two red Macaws flew by going straight up in the air like two little rockets. Will never forget how I felt seeing them outside of a cage.

I stayed at Chetica for 2 weeks and felt that the experience was wonderful, far beyond my expectations. The nurse Frances was always there, the hospital bed was a regular size, the food was delicious, brought to my room. You can make special requests, like a bowlful of fresh fruit for breakfast, maybe with some oatmeal. When I was healed... More

I recently had a double hip replacement at Hospital Clinica Biblica in San Jose. It was a great experience, the doctor and nursing staff were exceptional. I was looking forward to recovering at Chetica as it seemed like a peaceful and comfortable place on their website. Wrong. The owner picked me up at the hospital and drove me to the... More

I spent 33 days at the CheTica recovery ranch, August to September 2014. To say I was pleased would be a huge understatement, I loooooved my stay!!! I can’t imagine being better taken care of anywhere else. Truly. The owners, Ruben and Lorena, their children and family and the staff are kind, elegant, spiritual, self-less, professional and so much more.... More
