client reviews

Mr Neil Ritchie

"Beautiful and relaxing location but they were struggling with the heating and very cold at night. They gave hot water bottles after dinner so we were fine in Bed! The altitude took a bit of getting used to especially coming straight from Napo. "

Jo and Mike Bassett
"A somewhat tortuous car journey, the latter 20 miles or so over cobbled roads, but well worth it to arrive at this idyllic hacienda in the heart of the countryside. Although we arrived at 2.30 pm they willingly supplied a delicious 3-course lunch. Horse riding up into the mountains on the last day was also a great experience and we just about caught sight of the snow-capped summit of Cotopaxi mountain, normally shrouded in cloud."
Mr. Aubrey Fox
"Brilliant setting. Lovely room. Every so welcoming and genuinely pleased that we had come to their country. Very peaceful."
J & C Morley
"This Hacienda was very nice and the staff friendly, however the underfloor heating had obviously been a problem as there was an electric heater in the room. We were told the heating was on and would heat up soon, but it never did. We feel this should not have occurred"
Mrs. Anne Kirkham
"Surprisingly good considering out of the way location. Food especially but hospitality great."
