The people are as great as the place!
Whether you are looking for a hoseback adventure or just a place to kick back, The Rancho is perfect. Its a solid 15 minutes to San Juan if you wish experiece the evenings at the bars. We ate at the ranch every evening We had a car, but were offered rides if staff were heading to town. The food quality and fellowship was outstanding. Blue's rule: nobody leaves hungry! There is a ton of home cooked options. There is an honor system for ice cold beer@$1. Wine and spirits also available. Wine and beer are included with the evening meal. There are well cared for horses for all levels of riding and the ranch hands are great. I had the chance to improve my Spanish with the staff, but if that's not your thing, english is spoken here. Only stay here if you want to be treated like family, (quite possibly better than your own).

Nice hotel quite and very hospitable
Excellent staff!! They do really make you feel like family. Sam our guide made it possible for our horse riding experience which was the reason we were staying there in the first place. Blu the owner is very sweet, she will answer any questions you may have. My wife and I will be back!

Beautiful peaceful experience in paradise
Rancho Chilamate is a wonderful experience for someone wanting to see Nicaragua in all its glory. It is rich in its views and to calm the spirit if that's what you need. We didn't go horseback riding, just stayed by the pool and took in the peace and quiet. The dinners were wonderfully prepared by the 2 young gals staying and working there and the conversation was never dull at the dinner table. We became family listening and understanding one another and getting a big beautiful dose of community with Blue at the head leading the way.

Led to believe the air would be cooler at night
Not happy, nice staff pretty property but was led to believe that it would be cool at night, their website mentions that, but it was like an oven. Worst sleep I've had in years. If you're sensitive to heat I would suggest elsewhere, for such a nice and expensive place I would think A/C would be a standard.

가기 전에 읽었던 많은 후기들 대로 친절한 staff과 특별함이 있는 곳이었다. 숙소의 곳곳이 이뻤고 특히 저녁식사는 정말 예술이었다. 몇시간 전부터 고급 재료들을 아끼지 않은 저녁 식사에 정말 감동하지 않을 수 없었고 감사한 마음까지 들었다. 영어가 짧은 우리를 많이 신경 써 주었다. 편안했고 안전했고 평화로운 곳이었다
