Eco-colonial. The Dalton family’s ancestral home was transformed and enlarged with quality materials and great taste. Gurgling fountains, rugged stone walls and red adobe roofs lend historic charm.
Bed and Bath
The 20 spacious rooms (from 240 to 1,200 square feet) have high beam ceilings, tile floors, working fireplaces and king- or queensize beds fitted with Pratesi sheets and Guatemalan throws. The luxe bathrooms include his-and-hers sinks and antique-tiled showers. Spend mornings on the patio with a cup of the hotel’s coffee prepared with your in-room grinder and French press.
The menu at the stylish Pergaminos restaurant globe-trots with international cuisine. A quarter of the hotel’s land is dedicated to an ecological reserve perfect for outdoor activities, from hiking to mountain biking, jeep trips to mule rides. Also on-site is a gym and, of course, the coffee plantation, where you can join tasters sampling different blends.
In the Area
Take a tour of the resort’s working coffee plantation or explore it via mule ride. The surrounding mountain trails can be explored on foot or mountain bike. Filadelfia’s guides will take you birdwatching to try to spot some of the 170 different species found here. Or you can get up into the trees yourself with a zipline adventure. Be sure to spend at least a day exploring the 16th- and 17th-century churches, convents, monasteries and palaces of nearby Antigua, one of the Western Hemisphere’s best-preserved colonial cities. The city’s fine art galleries and street markets are among Central America’s best places to find locally produced textiles and crafts.
How to Get There
We just visited the resort, during a very slow time for them. May felt like, no one is around. Such a beautiful resort all to yourself! At the same time we had purchased some beautiful items and they disappeared there. We called them, no resolution So be be vigilant! I guess. I’d rather stay in downtown next time. Disappointed the resort did not report back on theft.
Well we took the Canopy and Coffee tour, and everything was going fine until we ride one of the zip lines and one of tour guides used a very derogatory, and disrespectful comment about one of the guys, so one of the guys in the tour was 6.3 (1.92M) and 140KG (300 pounds), when it was time for the long zip line, and the guy started the zip line the tour guy said "big potato on the way". In today's world we should stop using this type of language on how we treat other people, yeah some people laugh, but the person when he heard that was upset and his face completely change, so please Finca Filadelfia please take this into consideration!!!
Other thing, if there still a group taking the coffee tour at least keep the store open until the group comes back, at least the coffee tour guy gave a coffee sample!!!
Having lived in Central America for years, we thought we knew all about coffee production. We. Were. Wrong. Kind of did this trip to fill some time, and it was fantastic. Our guide Sergio, was so knowledgeable. The farm is gorgeous, and we learned so much. Highly recommended.
I have been 3 times and have enjoyed it every time. We have done the horse back riding and also other tours. I really enjoy seeing the process of coffee being made and how it is so labor intensive for me to enjoy one cup in the morning!
The restaurant is amazing and a great place to relax and have a dessert and fresh roasted cup of coffee. I highly recommend this tour!
Finca Filadelfia is more than a resort. It’s beautiful and refreshing to see the beauty hidden here. You can see volcano on a sunny day. It never disappoints me. I finally took coffee tour. I was amazed and excited to learn how coffee is cultivated. You must have mole. Delicious... I highly recommended.
