What a great place to be at! Leon and Brigitte make it real personal, showing our kids how to milk a cow, great conversations and good tips on what to do and see. Accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable.

My room was huge... More

This is a lovely place to go and relax. The owners simply can't do enough for you. They make you feel completely at home, our 3 years old son absolutely adored this place and so did we. You want a day trip? They will help you to organise it. You want to see some wild life? No problems, they will... More

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

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

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
