Brigette and Leon are lovely hosts. Our room was bright and spacious with a little kitchen area and a peaceful deck. We ordered dinner for our first night and thereafter found great little restaurants and sodas. From the ranch we were able to visit Curu Park twice, for hiking and swimming in incredibly warm water; Cabo Blanco Sanctuary for hiking... More

This dutch-german couple are very helpful and welcoming. The room is big and contains a kitchen and two beds with different mattresses. The shower has got both warm and cold water. We paid for breakfast which were good and we could choose when we wanted it and how we wanted our eggs. The location is a bit away from Tambor... More

We were pleasantly surprised as the photos do not do this place justice. This place is gorgeously landscaped and the rooms were some of the nicest we stayed in while in Costa Rica. The entire place smelled of jasmine and ylang ylang. We got to watch a family of monkeys living in the surrounding trees. The hosts were interesting to... More

We spent two nights with Brigitte and Leon and visited several nearby beaches. They were very helpful and had our first introduction to the nature of Costa Rica. We should have spent more time there but were off to Monteverde and then the Osa Peninsula. It is an operating cattle breeding farm with an open to the forest setting for... More

We thought we would stay on an actual working farm, that's what we understood from the website. But it's not. It's a small and nice lodge, owners do their best. Breakfast was good, but not the best. We stayed in the familycabin, nicely decorated and comfortable. A pity it doesn´t have a view over the mountains, cut a few small... More

We did reforestation with local trees and aromatic trees to attract a big varaity of birds and monkeys. All this animals are eating the flowers and seeds of those trees. We dont want to cut... More

A wonderful place to go with your family. The fantastic owners make you feel at home and dedicate all their time to help you plan your excusions. The howler monkeys and macaws give you a early morning concert. Great breakfast with homemade bread. Fidelito is, besides a quiet oasis, also a fantistic starting point to discover southern Nicoya, with some... More

This house was gorgeous, everything we could ask for. We loved the scenery, the pool, the kitchen, AND Freddie & the horses. We grabbed groceries in Tamarindo and cooked some meals. We did go into Playa Junquilla for beautiful meal on the beach, had supper at a Tico restaurant. The highlight was Freddy taking us on an excursion and going... More

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
