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

Our guesthouse is in the middle of our 60 ha farm, with cattles and horses. We offer hikes and horsetours and milking our happy cows. 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.

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

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!

We stayed at the place in the beginning of May 2014. We planned for 2 nights and eventually it was 5. Hosts were very kind and helpful people. Room was spacey, well designed and clean. We liked the location of the ranch as is it was out of towns hustle and not far from all surrounding attractions. We liked fresh... More
