Had a three night stay as part of our two week trip to Ecuador. Our guides were very knowledgeable, pleasant and professional. We stayed off site from the main house at a two bedroom lodge. Simply beautiful, cozy and private. Meals were excellent.

Sachatamia Lodge (and the reserve in which it's located) was the primary destination and highlight of our recent trip to Ecuador. Each of the two couples in our group stayed in a "bungalow superior" and found the accomodations comfortable and clean. Decent nature observation

It used to be a great place to stay but on our last family visit, the service and specially the rooms and other areas have deteriorated and show a lack of maintenance and care. Furthermore, there is no accessibility to older people. It is a safety concern. Food is fairly good.

The hummingbirds were amazing. The room was peaceful and quiet. The staff were very friendly. I wish they had screens on the windows so you could open them at night. Information or a map of the property would have been to nice to have had in the room. (Or some basic info

The Lodge is set in magnificent grounds, full of trees and feeders from which hummingbirds and tanagers among others flit and display. The view across to the mountains is lovely. We stayed three nights and stayed in Room 1 in the main lodge. It is at the top of the main building

Hey hello ! Thank you for your five stars rating ! Let me tell you a story , the house was the first building in all the property , was really difficult to provide the bathrooms in all the rooms of the house . More difficult to make it nice and comfortable . So thank you for your comments. Room number 1 is really special , my next plan is to change the door of the area down in the stairs , so is more private's . Our cabins are 5 minuets walking from the building , that's because we have a lot of persons visiting us that are not so younger to trip to the restaurant . And also Sachatamia is not going to grow more in capacity for the conservation and preservation of the habitat . It will be great you can write me directly to explain me the packed breakfast so we can improve , maybe by facebook . Hope you see again and meet you ! Juan Jose Salazar

Dear RM There are seven kilometers from Sachatamia to Mindo , it is better to get a taxi to go to Minto, after that ist´s possible to rent a bike in the town if you want. the majority our rooms have two beds, but the price is per person, no problem about that. however if you want a room with a single bed, you can ask for a room in the second flord the main building.

"Bungalows Superior" are great options"
"Ask for a room in the main lodge; otherwise, you stay in cabanas that require you to walk a trail to get to them."
"Check the cabanas for damp!"
"Stay in the cabins not on the main house, cabins are much much nicer...."
"Cabins 6, 7, 8 and 9 are the best for their location, inmersed in the forest."
US$120 - US$159 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
