"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."

"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."

"They provided some wonderful vegetarian evening meals ( and breakfasts) and were very welcoming.
The hacienda is beautifully restored"
"It's just off the main road and there isn't much freedom to wander on foot, but we were being collected by Fernando and taken out on both mornings and were happy to relax around the house the rest of the time.
The accommodation is very comfortable. Our room was fine, quite well equipped, and overlooked the front garden.
Maria is very keen on maintaining Ecuadorian food traditions and so we tried a variety of foods, including Lupin seed salad!
I do think it's worth noting that there is a bull ring in the back yard, which was a bit of a shock to me. Several people I know would have been very upset!"
"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."
