I was due to stay here for 2 nights with my husband. I booked months in advance following reassurance that our vegetarian food requirements would be met. Initially I was very pleased, they wanted to know the sorts of things we did and didn´t like etc.
Upon arrival we were shown to our room which had an overwhelming smell of damp. Following this we went for lunch, we were given the veggie menu, which contained 5 things (nothing specifically for us as we were led to believe). The evening meal was from the same menu and the quality of the food was not that of a ´chef´´.
We complained to the manager, he spoke little english and offered to allow us to leave the following day but pay for both nights, much hand wringing later and my production of a copy of the email from the overall manager re food, and we escaped, paying for 1 night only. Although we had to pay for a taxi back to quito ($60) which had been included initially.
I wouldn´t advise anyone to go here unless you like paying a lot for crap.
