We booked 5 nights and we felt so good there we decided to stay all the rest of our vacation. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the kitchen is very convenient, especially with a young kid. We were woken up by the sunrise through the trees l, the bird songs and the monkeys calls. The Tambor beach is desert and is probably the only beach safe for young kids (no waves). The area is not touristic at all but you're at 30 minutes from more popular beaches if you miss the crowd.
The hosts are fantastic and very welcoming. They took a lot of time to let our son connect with the animals of the farm, an experience he's not about to forget.
A wonderful place

We booked a last-minute two nights at Fidelito while driving from Tamarindo to the Southern Nicoya peninsula and consider ourselves extremely lucky for having come across the place, with its unique setting, ideal location, wonderful hosts, and reasonable prices, certainly if compared to other options in Santa Teresa and Malpais.

As a working ranch in the hills above Tambor coast, one gets a rare glimpse into the rural lifestyle that Leon and Brigitte have built for themselves over past 2 decades. And they are more than happy to share their stories and expertise in the area and travel in general. There is a wonderful central outdoor social area which is a natural hub in the evenings. The welcome juice is delicious as is the milk from the farm!

The cabins are spacious, clean, and more than adequate. They are fitted with a small kitchen in the back for preparing breakfasts and even dinners if desired.

The location, about 10 minutes from Tambor beach, is ideal for exploring other parts of Southern Nicoya, including Montezuma, Malpais, Santa Teresa, and Curu. The Paqueras ferry to Puntarenas is about an hour away.

For families, couples, anyone who does not feel the need to be right on the beach, and wants to explore nature from a different perspective, a stay at Fidelito will prove unforgettable.

Thank you Leon and Brigitte - until the next time (God willing)!

I have to say that this was one of our most unique and pleasant vacation stays. We always look for quaint and economical places to stay, and we found just that. The cabins/rooms were huge and beautiful, the location is not the easiest to get to but well worth it. The owners were really the best, we only stayed for 2 nights but we felt like family and were truly sad to leave. This is a place for people that like to go off the beaten path. We drove to the beaches, which are only 15 minutes away as there is only so much to do at Fidelito with kids, but they truly loved it. We drove to a little "sodita" within town and had great meals for next to nothing. The experience was truly unique, we would definetely love to visit this wonderful place again.

Our stay at Fidelito was very comfortable and Brigit and Leon did everything to make our stay beautiful. They are such nice people.
Our appartment had our own terrace, overlooking the jungle. And there is a central place to hang out. Leon is ful with great stories about his travels around the world. And Brigit helps you with everything to make your stay comfortable and gives the right advise where to go.
They have two private apartments which are great for families!
So if you want to stay of the beaten track with beautiful hosts and enjoy the quietness of nature, this is the place!

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.
