“Flawless!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

The lodge was spectacular; the rooms immaculate; the service impeccable; the views exhilarating; the food gourmet. This was our Christmas present to each other and was one of the best we have ever shared. It is difficult to describe the peace and serenity of this unique piece of paradise. The facilities were everything you could expect but the service took it over the top. Virtually everything is included in the price making it a good value but the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff made this experience memorable. Each time we would arrive after a long horseback ride, the staff would have tall cold glasses of fresh squeezed lemonade ready for us on the front steps of the lodge. The owner, Pepe Escobar, was always there and shared much of the history of the property and the area making it come alive. The chef was very accommodating to any dietary wishes and the food was as good as any we have enjoyed in Ecuador. The cooking class was wonderful and sampling the creations was great fun. The whole experience was wonderful and we will definitely return soon.

Room Tip: Corner rooms, 4, 5 and 8 are the best views.

Our group of 6 motorcyclists stayed here on the second day of our 2 week tour of Ecuador. Although the entrance gate was a welcome sight after navigating the dirt roads getting to the lodge, even better was the warm welcome by the staff and the sight of the pool. After making the difficult choice as to which were the best rooms we retired to the pool where the staff graciously attending to our refreshment needs prior to serving us dinner in the dining room. Our only regret is that we were only staying one night as this is a place that deserves a much longer stay to appreciate all it has.
The staff went above and beyond when one of our group left his glasses behind and they personally delivered the glasses to the hotel in Quito, Casa Gardenia (another 1st class place to stay) where we would be ending our tour.
Fabulous place to stay in a fabulous setting!

Room Tip: End corner rooms seem to have the best view as have wrap around windows but you really can't go...

As we turned off the main highway and began our bumpy dusty ascent through the back roads of Ecuador I must say I wondered what we had gotten ourselves into. Thankfully the scenery was outstanding, the most beautiful I have ever seen and I was able to quell my worries. When at last we arrived it was truly as if arriving at an oasis. The hacienda is serene and gorgeous. But with out doubt the warm and inviting staff made our stay the best experience I have every had. Alex, Pedro, Jose and Byron went out of their way to be sure we were always happy and happy we were. I hated to leave and will make this place a "must go back" destination next time I have the luck to be visiting Ecuador again!

Room Tip: All rooms are basic and comfortable with beautiful views from private balconies.

I recently visited the Hacienda in company of my 14 years old son. It is an amazing place to unwind and see nature at its best. Timeless! We did horseback and hiking to the near by waterfall. The staff went out of the way to make our stay a memorable one. Alex, Jose Luis, everyone that we came across were great. I am looking forward going back again...I already missed being pampered with the great food and company of everyone

We have recently returned from the Hacienda after a memorable week. It is in a beautiful cloud forest area in northern Ecuador.
There is so much to or so little to do. Horse back riding, rafting, walking along the banks of the the Rio Blanco, venturing into the coffee plantation, milk some cows, visit the local villages, or some of the larger towns within easy distance. (these are for the shoppers; markets, leather and much more)
Or you can just laze around the pool, relaxing with a cool drink and freinds.
The rooms are all very comfortable and roomy (not that you need the space) and all with views of the Andes or surrounding forests. All the amenities you need are supplied.
And if food is what you are looking, all meals are included. And damn good meals that. Lunch is the main meal of the day, and one could be excused for an afternoon nap and a three course meal.
Breakfast and dinner are also substantial, which is great if you have had a physical day on horseback. If you can, have fresh local trout from the trout farm a few kilometers away.
All in all we had a great week, and hope to return one day in the not too distant future,
Our thanks to Pepe, Julie, Alex, Jose, Pedro (the Chef) and all the other staff, it would not have been the same without you all.

Room Tip: The three rooms on the corners 4,5, & 8 Broader views.

We visited with friends, and the whole weekend was magical. It was an inspiring place to unwind and get away from the hectic life pace of the city. Nature as far as the eye can see. We trekked uphill, halfway on horseback, the rest on foot. At the end we were rewarded with an amazing waterfall where the kids splashed and jumped. On the way down we went a bit off the trail, picking oranges, tangerines, bananas whenever the kids got hungry. The food was delicious, everything was perfect. I truly would not change a thing. From the always attentive staff, to the rooms with the best views, the pool; absolutely perfect. I'd definitely go there again. We had a blast!!

Room Tip: Rumor has it there's a room where every couple who've stayed there get pregnant....Be warned...

The entire time we were at Hacienda Primavera, my family and I couldn't stop saying "This place is incredible." The location is stunning, the activities are fun, the food is DELICIOUS and seemingly never-ending, and the rooms are clean & comfortable. But what really makes the place special is the staff. Alex, Jose, Pedro, and all the other people there were so genuinely kind and helpful that we all felt like they really enjoyed having us. We honestly can't wait to go back. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Room Tip: The corner rooms are especially spectacular.
