We stayed at the Hacienda Manteles for one night while on a tour, but would have liked to stay longer. Although remote, the setting is beautiful overlooking the Cotopaxi volcano. Both the owner and manager greeted us personally and the manager made sure we were all comfortable and even offered the use of the Hacienda's clothes dryer when my daughter and I found that that our clothes were damp due to our suitcases getting wet during the transfer from our Amazon hotel to the bus.
The rooms varied. Ours in one of the outlying buildings was clean and comfortable and just big enough for the 2 double beds. The bath was modern and we had plenty of hot water.
Since we were there just before New Years, the manager arranged for us to view several traditional Ecuadorian New Years customs which enriched our stay.
