Had a good 2 night stay at Finca Del Sol. Sherri and Cristiano are great hosts. The rooms are nice and clean. Great to see Eco friendly places especially where water is so precious around there. We did not eat here but the food we did see did look amazing. They helped us booking taxis which was very helpful!!! Beautiful spot and would love to go back again!

My husband and I enjoyed 2 nights in the yellow cabin. The cabin was comfortable, cozy, and well appointed, with a nice bathroom (complete with a very clean and eco-friendly composting toilet), hammocks, mosquito netting over the bed, and a tv with DVD player. The best part, however, was the orthopedic bed, which was by far the best bed I've ever slept on. Sheri and Cristiano were wonderful hosts, welcoming us in and giving us tips about the island, and even coordinating a hike on nearby Maderas volcano. Throughout our brief stay, it was very apparent how much the owners had thought about their guests and their comfort. I would highly recommend Finca del Sol for any travelers to Ometepe and I hope to get back one day!

My boyfriend and I (in our mid 20s) stayed at Finca del Sol in the blue cabin. Immediately, we were greeted with hospitality from Sherri, offering us waters and introducing us to her family of pets. The cabin was clean and well kept. Living here for just those couple of days, made me cognizant of how wasteful one can be. Sherri, Christiano and the staff do a great job of showing that you can live sustainably AND comfortably. There is free drinking water in the cabin and a TV/DVD player. We took advantage of the hammock and lounge chairs outside of the patio to gaze at the stars at night; with little light pollution, there were thousands of stars to behold in the clear sky. Even more, there were hundreds of fireflies putting on an awesome light show for us on ground. During the day, there was an awesome view of Volcan Concepcion in the distance. When my boyfriend became ill, Sherri was very hospitable; with a background in Holistic nutrition, she brewed up an herbal tea and offered us bread and some lemons to ease his illness. They offered great recommendations on restaurants and were able to organize tours/taxis with ease. We enjoyed our stay at Finca del Sol and highly recommend you stay there as well! Cheers!

I stayed in the Bambu Cabin with 3 of my friends. It's a magical spot overlooking majestic Volcan Concepcion. It was the perfect tranquil homebase for exploring the natural wonder of Ometepe. The cabin was spacious, clean, and beautiful, and the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was luxurious. We had a fabulous time hanging out in the hammocks or lounge chairs sunbathing or watching the sunsets, or nighttime sky. The hosts prepared us a delectable breakfast everyday and helped us feel completely at home. The TLC they've put into their property is inspiring. I loved their coffee, homemade bread and jam, omelets. I especially loved watching all the hummingbirds buzz around the flowering vines at the beautiful breakfast area!

Sheri was very mindful in accommodating my friend with food allergies. The cabin is also an easy walk to other restaurants and a long beach. Definitely recommend this place!

We stayed at Hotel Finca Del Sol for 4 nights. The cabinas had great character, were well looked after and were cleaned every day. The bed was very comfortable and there was a TV with a DVD player to watch movies on. The grounds and views were beautiful and the staff friendly and helpful. We had breakfast one morning and it was delicious, filling, healthy and prepared with love. We felt safe and comfortable. Lots of bugs despite the screened windows so bring your camera and bravery!

This little hideaway is just what the doctor ordered. Self sustainable eco-village of 3 huts provides intimate privacy, beauty and a chance to reconnect with nature. Homemade breakfast, central location to climb Isla de Ometepe and a great host to point you in the right direction for your holiday itinerary. Ask about the woodfire pizza nights, an experience to remember.

These adobe, sun powered cabinas are beautiful. We stayed in the cabina named Sol. One can feel the labour of love that went into making this unit. There are no sharp corners in this round space with completely pleasing organic shapes. This is place truly deserves to be called Eco. The entire place is solar powered with a passive solar shower and composting toilet. These folks knew what they were doing; it is all artfully done and functions nearly perfectly. It is a matter of walking the walk. Sheri and Cristiano obviously take walking lightly on the earth seriously. The breakfasts were excellent and plentiful. I enjoyed the added bonus of visiting with other guests at breakfast.
The paving stone road is great for walking and we found getting to the restaurants recommended by our hosts very pleasant. And I heartily embrace their choices. By following their advice we had great meals on the island.
Yes, it is a hike to reception and the breakfast table, but it is a charming 350 metres.
