Client Rating for Ecuador 5/5 from 82 reviews

What a place! A holiday in itself just to be there. Mad Englishman (different one) restores old Hacienda superbly, fills it with artefacts and Spanish/South American furniture, and creates amazing garden and grounds. Logs fires and hot water bottles. Humming bird at window box of bathroom on 1st morning!
