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
Beautiful place, staff and very good food. The rooms are very nice, the coffee fabric is super interesting and they give tours. We recommend to do the tour to understand where coffee comes from:) It makes you appreciate every detail involved until it comes to your mouth to taste it!
Finca Filadelfia is a large coffee finca right outside Antigua Guatemala. It is a beautiful facility that offers a variety of things to do. The finca has a good gift shop, a lovely place to eat, a hotel, horseback rides, birdwatching tours, a zipline...and more. Don't miss the tour of the coffee plantation, and wait for Faustino to be your English speaking guide. He is informative and charming, a real pleasure to learn from. He made our two-hour tour delightful.
I stayed at the Finca Filadelfia in early March and had a fabulous time. The grounds are gorgeous, the rooms are comfortable, and the coffee tour was interesting and enjoyable. It was a quick Uber drive for about 24 quetzales to get to downtown Antigua from the hotel.
I arrived and didnt even get a hello from reception, I just stood there whilst the 2 receptions helped anothet couple. Why they needed 2 staff members I don't know. There isn't even a room service menu in the rooms. I arrived before check in and sat and waited for 2 hours until I went to the desk and asked if my room was ready after check in time and it was. So they just forgot about me. Once in the room there was a dead bird in the fire place. I paid 175 dollars per night for a room and when I asked for more water to brush my teeth with they charged me for it. They give 2 complimentary bottles but I needed to use that to clean the dirty coffee making facilities in the room as you can't use the tap water. The grounds are beautiful but it's so not worth the money. There is a swimming pool but there was no one in it as it was just dirty, all it needs is a pool cleaner. All i wanted to do was relax by the pool - dirty and poor wifi
Breakfast is poor as is the coffee!!! At night you can hear people chatting away so loud. The reception staff need to deal with this and tell people to be quiet right outside the rooms. I was in room 3, other rooms get netflix but this one doesn't apparently and the is a big black blob on the TV screen. I can go on and on.
I went on the coffee tour and had a blast! The guide was super knowledgable and funny! I learned so much and am in awe of the process. We got a coffee sample at the end and it was amazing. I will order coffee from them in the future!
