My family and I recently stayed at the Fidelito Ranch as we really wanted a to stay somewhere different to the usual beach hotels. We all absolutely loved it the place. Brigitte and Leon have built this working farm from scratch which is a great achievement. They seem to have a great life there. The hotel feels like you are... More

She also made delicious homemade bread and delicious fresh breakfast! It's in a beautiful area of CR close to Curu National Park, close to the ocean and to... More

I think I need to preface this review by saying that we are not your typical travellers. We came to Costa Rica not as tourists, but as foreign investors who had recently purchased land nearby and this trip was to go down and see it. (Our previous visit to C.R. was to the Guanacaste region and we stayed at the... More

Fidelito Ranch welcomed us and offered a lovely (tailored to our vegan needs) meal in a great outdoor gazebo.The accommodations are very comfortable, nicely decorated & includes a kitchenette & large bathroom. Brigitte & Leon are very friendly and Brigitte took us on a very pleasurable horse ride with happy horses and beautiful paths thru their countryside. A great place... More

It was great to be in such a centric place, surrounded by nature but will all commodities on site. Our son rode horses, milked cows, played with dogs, listen to monkeys, saw macaws and iguanas. Additionally, breakfasts were delicious and fresh everyday! We'll be back!

Our family of 5 was so glad to have found Fidelito Ranch and our wonderful hosts, Brigitte and Leon. We have lived in Costa Rica for over a year and have stayed in many hotels, but Fidelito will be one of the very special places I will long remember. The room was quite spacious and perfect with its well outfitted... More

For what kind of people is the Fidelito Ranch? You should be looking for a place a little off the road. The ranch in the middle of nature and it feels very remote there but in the most positive way. There is so much to see just by lying in the hammock, enjoying the surroundings and the nice view. You... More

Dont be alarmed by the dirt roads on the way to this property IT IS WORTH THE DRIVE, It is beautiful getting there and even better once you arrive.
