This was our first trip to Ometepe and our stay at Finca del Sol certainly added to this unforgettable experience. The cabanas are absolutely beautiful, organically coexisting in peaceful harmony with the surrounding environment. We loved the quiteness and complete darkness at night. Sheri and Christiano are charming hosts and the guide they recommended for our Maderas hike was fantastic....

By far the best cabana we've ever stayed in. Spacious along with the best quality mosquito netting and window screening, solar hot water, green building methods with composting toilet and a wonderful view. Walking distance to the beach and nearby restaurants. As there are only three cabanas there's really not much of a travelers vibe, however. With so much privacy...

Finca del Sol was a bit of paradise. We stayed in the Bamboo Lodge, and enjoyed sunsets and a dangerously comfortable queen-size bed. (Dangerous in the sense that we didn't want to get out of bed.) Guests should be aware that they are staying in a natural environment, and will probably see a few (harmless) insects in the room. Finally:...

My husband and I had three great nights in the Bamboo Lodge. The queen bed was spacious and very comfortable. Very unique mosquito netting that is easy to use and doesn't make you feel claustrophobic. The breeze at night made it the perfect temperature for sleeping. I was surprised as I am usually someone who needs AC in hot countries...

We stayed 3 nights in the Bamboo Lodge and just loved it! My guess is that this may not be for everybody, but I think you can figure that out by looking at their web page. If you look, and say to yourself, "HOW COOL!", you will not be disappointed! The property is a paradise! We had a beautiful view...

We stayed here over New Year and what a magical place it is! The Island itself is amazing and what Sheri & her partner have done at Finca del Sol is wonderful. The whole place is an oasis of calm and serenity. We had Sheri's home cooked breakfast each morning and it was delicious. Would definitely recommend staying here while...

I picked this place because it is secluded, quiet, only 3 casitas and it's green and eco-friendly. Sherri, the owner, was great and helped with ferry pick up, breakfast and tour arrangements. I lied the fact that this place is a farm and the owners built ethe place themselves. The Casita had no AC, but we were never hot and...

What to get away from the daily rushing around for a while - then come here! Sheri and Christiano are great hosts. Happy to help organise trips, taxis and provide general info about the island. I agree with all the other 5* reviews...if you're looking for a relaxing place to stay, this is it - remote feeling but well connected...

Staying at Finca del Sol was a great experience. The cabins are like having your own little home with tons of privacy and a great view of Volcan Conception! For being a more "rustic" and off-the-grid style of accommodation we were pleased to find out that there was hot water and even a TV with tons of movies!! Keep in...
