"This was our one disappointment. The hacienda is close to a main road and overlooks a steel factory. The itinerary suggested that cycling, horse riding and walking were available. Apart from walking down a lane heavily used by cattle, no other activities were available. We were the only guests so we were pleased to have our backgammon board with us! Apparently since the last eruption of Cotopaxi in 2015 business has been very bad.Response from the owners of Hato Verde: Hacienda Hato Verde is located 1 kilometer away from the Pan-American highway (main road), so strategically that it looks like a hidden place in the countryside. The main activity of the hacienda is dairy farming, so it is very normal to meet cattle and horses in their pastures. The tranquility that surrounds the house is felt at every moment because it is surrounded by native trees of the area. Yes, there is a steel factory on the opposite side of the highway approximately 3 kilometers away.And further comment from Tribes: In regards to the extra activities. The hotel has a book on the Hacienda´s history, which also contains the extra activities the hacienda has to offer and the rates. They do not offer the tours directly to clients, only when asked for. The owners advised me that the do not want clients to feel pressured to buy a tour."

"Nice Hacienda, but we had a very awkward situation on the second night when the family had personal house guests staying. We felt quite uncomfortable and felt as though we were intruding being amongst an Ecuadorian family and their friends in their own house before and during dinner. They were perfectly polite and seemed happy for us to be there, but it was a total surprise to us.Reply from the owners of Hato Verde:
It really was a pleasure to share with Mr. & Mrs. Morrison as well as the other guests, who were not family but Ecuadorian people who stayed for their holiday.
"Accommodation and hospitality were excellent. The only path is also used by the cattle, and as it had been raining a lot it was extremely muddy! A selection of boots to borrow would have been very much appreciated."
"It was interesting staying there and we were made welcome. There is not actually much to do there although we went for a walk down a farm road. The environment is not particularly scenic with industry not far away. We would have preferred to stay in the Cotopaxi National Park if possible. Tribes Response - Unfortunatly there is no good quality accommodation available within the park."
"By far the most luxurious place we stayed at. Wendy loved it here! The familly made us feel very welcome and not like staying in a hotel at all. Being a working farm it was a bit of an early start hearing the cows moving from the field, but that was part of the charm of the place. The food was of a very high standard but so was the price unfortunatley! I would have preffered if we had been told that there is nowhere else to eat here in the evening and if this was included in the price of staying here. I did feel that this was a bit cheeky. But that said it was an amazing place to stay if you dont want to feel like another faceless customer in a big hotel."
