This Hacienda has it all! Great service, great food, and so many things to do... or just relax by the pool and enjoy the scenery. The resort is great for people of all ages. We brought our 8 month old daughter along and there were other guests in their 60s and up!
The drive from Quito is not short, but there are so many things to see along the way, including stopping to stand on the equator. On the way back, we also stopped in Otavalo at the market. If you love to bargain over prices, that place is heaven... otherwise, you pay full or over-price, and yet everything is still incredibly cheap. And the finds can be great quality. My Otavalo tablecloths have stood up to washing better than my Crate & Barrel ones!!
We went horseback riding, hiking to waterfalls, and I got to go white water rafting while hubby stayed with the baby :) All the guides are so nice and helpful. You can just feel that everyone there wants to make sure you are happy and having a great time. Knowing that they all care so much made such a difference in the quality of our stay.
The food was excellent. Lunches and dinners are prepared at pretty flexible hours. They usually figure out when you will be done with your morning and afternoon activities and adjust the timing accordingly. Breakfast is whenever you wake up. Make sure you ask for the "Ecuadorian breakfast", which consists of last night's leftovers fried up with rice and an egg. Great energy for your morning hike! All the juices are freshly squeezed and they have a pretty great selection of wines.
Our room was clean and tastefully decorated. The beds were comfortable, and my husband is very sensitive to this. Each room has it's own bathroom and balcony, and the views are breathtaking.
Our stay at the Hacienda was by far the best we have ever been on... and we have been around the world a bit. You couldn't ask for better views or friendlier staff, and the activities are plentiful. Would highly recommend!
