Don't miss this lovely hacienda steeped in history from the early days of the Jesuits in Ecuador. This place is right up with the best of modern hotels in comfort, service, and excellent cuisine.
It has a very special aura about it. it is a very cozy and welcoming place. I loved setting in the big common room warmed by a huge fireplace. I spent hours gazing out the huge windows at the llama family grazing peacefully in the field beyond the well tended lawn. Two nearby snow capped mountains set the scene and added to the ambiance.
Before coming, I was a bit apprehensive about staying at such a high altitude because I do not like to be cold. Our room which had a huge (California King?) bed, quality linens and puffy comforter was excellent. The room itself had heating in the floor as well as a wall heater. We could step outside to a lawn with ancient trees. The spacious bathroom, with the dual vanity and huge shower, was the nicest we found in any of the small hotels where we stayed in Ecuador.
Maybe it is because the owners have another fine hotel in Quito that Santa Anas has the services of an outstanding chef. The staff were all well trained even the local guides that took us to Cotapoxi and to the waterfall were superb (we have limited Spanish, but we did fine).
This is a very special place. You do feel very peaceful here. You can understand why the
Jesuits chose this spot a long time ago.
