Bellavista Cloud Forest Lodge
Perfect location, lovely staff and amazing nature.
Hotel el Relicario del Carmen
Loved my hotel in Quito (El Relicario Del Carmen). It had an amazing character and was the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in! Also the location was perfect.
Napo Wildlife Centre
Second to none! The Napo Wildlife Centre project is just incredible. Built by local people in a pristine and most beautiful location, managed by local people and benefitting the local community.First-class service, first-class programme! You couldn't possibly ask for more! Outstanding experience overall, cannot recommend it more!
Absolutely loved the ship. The crew must have loved it too as they were very protective of it and kept it in a pristine condition. First class service and the food was just out of this world! Shame I can't remember the name of the chef now but the meals he produced were to die for! Never in my whole life I loved the food so much. Every single dish was just perfect. The lovely chef even prepared separate dishes for me as I have dietary restrictions. Unfortunately I was taken ill at the end of the trip but the ship owner dealt with that situation perfectly. The ship took me to Santa Cruz island. The owner arranged hotel and taxi for me, met me at the doctor's and helped me to get my antibiotics. First class care! The hotel Villa Laguna even upgraded my room for the second night to make my stay more comfortable! I couldn't recommend Samba more. Absolutely loved the whole experience and terribly miss the extraordinary cuisine!
