My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights at Finca del Sol and loved it. We stayed in the Bamboo Cabin Lodge which I highly recommend out of the 3 options. It is beautiful inside with a lovely tile floor, nice tile details throughout the bathroom and plenty of space with fresh air flowing through the many windows. No AC but you hardly need it with all the windows (plus there is a small fan which we used at night to keep us cool). The two hammocks on the porch are ideal for relaxing in the morning after one of Finca del Sol's delicious, filling breakfasts (french toast, pancakes, or eggs with a big bowl of fresh fruit). It was nice to have the cleaning service daily- our little home was always clean when we got home from a day of adventuring around Ometepe.
Sheri & Cristiano were lovely hosts. Sheri helped us rent a motorbike just outside Finca del Sol's gates. The men we rented the bike from were very nice & helpful and it was a great way to see Ometepe. Sheri also helped us organize our hike of Volcano Maderas, with a very nice tour guide named Efrain. The hike is amazing and very easy to arrange from Finca del Sol. Sheri & Cristiano have a beautiful space: flora & fauna galore, great views, with good access to restaurants and the beach in Santa Cruz (easily accessible by foot). Enjoying breakfast in their outdoor garden space every morning was a great way to meet other travelers and hear about their favorite parts of Ometepe. We can't wait to be back!
