Reviewed 3 July 2010

We only stayed here one night during a tour of Ecuador, but this was one of the most memorable hotels I've been to. The rooms are beautifully done-out in a rustic style and the beds are enormous. The food is first class, and there is a lovely sitting room, with a real log fire, where you can relax with a drink. The service is excellent and really friendly. The Hacienda has its own lovely grounds, but the highlight of the stay had to be the fantastic views of the Tungurahua volcano, which was erupting at the time. The nights might have been a tad noisier than is usual, but it's a night I'll never forget!

A “Five-Star” Recommendation!

We spent a week at the Hacienda Manteles and had a great experience (their 4 night/5 day family package is an exceptional value)! We were particularly impressed with the prompt and thorough communication we had with Maria Clara before we arrived and with the warm welcome & wonderful interaction with the staff during our stay. They really care about the experience they are creating for their guests and they work hard to meet your needs! Their passion, their attention to detail, and their commitment to deliver excellent guest service, made this a week we will never forget. We left Hacienda Manteles with amazing memories and wonderful new friends! Thanks Maria Clara – when we return to Ecuador, you are the person we will call to help us make arrangements to see more of your beautiful country!

This hacienda is a germ just a short 40 minutes scenic drive from Banos. I loved the atmosphere, the friendlyness of the staff and the welcome of the owners. It felt like visiting friends and once there you don't want to leave again. I had a fantastic time and also did some horse riding up into the mountains with stunning views over the valley. The food is outstanding and the place certainly invites you being back again.

This is one of my absolute favorite places to go. The ranch is so beautiful and the staff are so gracious and welcoming. I highly recommend staying here and experiencing the warm and welcoming culture.

We stayed at Hacienda Manteles for 3 nights as part of our 3 week honeymoon adventure around Ecuador. The hacienda itself is lovely with wonderful gardens, beautiful rustic, luxurious rooms, plush gardens with hammocks for relaxing in and great views down the valley to the often erupting Tungurahua. We also had fun playing in the gardens with the 3 friendly dogs; I think my wife wanted to take Sissy home with us! The best aspect of the stay however was the warm welcome from our hosts Ernesto and Cesar; friendly, helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend although note that it's located around 30 minutes by car from Banos town, but if that isn’t a problem book it..

We booked a room in this hacienda to be in vicinity of banos. After our late arrival of the plain we called them and they guided us the whole way to the place (we rented a car while traveling around in Ecuador and navigation in Ecuador is not so easy). They waited for us with the dinner and the food eas realy good! THe place is very clean and rooms are quite big. The guide (Ernesto) is very friendly and also the owner of the place was realy friendly and wanted to learn about OUR country.
The only negative thing was the weather there but hey, it was the rainy period ... I really recomend this place - one of the best stays in ecuador (some other haciendas are too big, but in this one your realy feel like at home) especially if you want to relax and trek around the countryside (the drive to the city of banos takes around 40 mins by car but).
Realy worth a visit!!!

We stayed for a night but would have stayed longer if our travelling schedule would have permitted. The hacienda is beautiful and the rooms are very well appointed, clean, nice sheets and confy pillows and mattress. the views of the valley and volcano are unforgettable.
The location is a little bit out of the way, isolated, peaceful. Banos is about 45 minutes away along a very winding road.
The food was very good, we had lunch and breakfast.
Cesar welcomed us like guests of this own home. Ernesto took us hiking to the waterfall. We couldn't do the canopy tour because it was rainy.
Will go back for a longer stay to enjoy the outdoors, go horseback riding and relax.
