Location! Location! Location! says it all. The view of Quito from the wooded hills of San Jorge Ecolodge is especially beautiful at night, and this 19th Century hacienda has been lovingly restored by the Cruz family. Typical Ecuadorian food is served in the onsite restaurant, and breakfast can be ready as early as 5 AM for those who want to... More

Our stay at the San Jorge Eco-Lodge and Botanical Reserve couldn't have been more enjoyable. It is a beautiful spot, located above the noise and bustle of Quito, yet close enough to have easy access to the city. The staff is courteous, accommodating, and interesting to talk to. Dr. Cruz helped us arrange a fascinating birding circuit, which he led... More

Our family recently took a once in a lifetime trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos. Visiting the Galapagos was certainly an unforgettable experience, we thought how can you top that? The trip to San Jorge Eco-Lodge & Botanical Reserve/Quito was equally wonderful. The Lodge is a lovely Spanish hacienda built during the last century in the hills above Quito (the... More

We spent a total of three nights here at the main lodge; two after our arrival in Quito and for our last night after returning from nights spent at the San Jorge lodges at Tandayapa and Milpe (please see my other reviews for those also excellent lodges). This lodge (the original one) is housed in an historical hacienda (18th Century)... More

My husband, 13yr old son, and I stayed at the Quito lodge. The room was very nice with plenty of bottled water, hot water, and electricity. We had a great time! Our first day was open and Dr. Cruz gave us a hiking map to some lovely waterfalls. We had great views of the city from above. Our second day... More

San Jorge Eco-Lodge & Botanical is an absolute must for the nature lover, bird and orchid enthusiasts. All arrangements were pre-made by Cheryl including all transportation, meals, accommodation and guiding. I met Dr. Cruz (Jorge), the owner in Quito and we quickly became good friends with our interest in nature photography, and particularly my love of wild orchids. Ecuador has... More

I visited San Jorge/Quito in late May-early June 2014, using it as a base for other excursions. The staff were all unfailingly courteous and helpful. Food was very good. I had two different rooms, both on the main level. Each room was comfortable, bathrooms worked just fine. I did not spend much time birding at San Jorge/Quito itself, but went... More

Stayed at the Quito Lodge - did not see any hummingbirds there but took the magic bird circuit and the owner George brought us to the Tandapaya Lodge where there was a fantastic myriad of birds feeding from the bird feeders and bananas left on trees! George is a lovely man and very accommodating with plenty of experience of birds.... More

This lodge is very close to Quito and a must for birdwatchers. The lodge itself is historic and the owner and his son run an excellent operation. All the San Jorge lodges are recomended. The views to the valley are beautiful and the trails perfect for birding. Rooms are nice and beds are comfortable. Do the Magic Birding Circuit!

We took a lovely day trip to San Jorge Hummingbird Lodge in the Cloud Forest an hour or so from Quito. George, the affable owner, himself picked us up at our hotel. The drive, once you are free of the astounding Quito traffic, was beautiful -- lots of breathtaking views. I doubt if you'll ever see more hummingbirds at one... More
