There is no separate category for restaurant only for this Hacienda, so I am including it here. The place seemed like it needed some upkeep- the grounds and property were very basic. I would rate this place a 2.5. The service was quite slow for lunch. I believe it took us almost 2 hours for lunch which was far more... More

I travelled here as part of a large group and the owners went out of their way to accommodate us. The setting was beautiful and the facilities were top quality. The indoor swimming pool was great for pool volleyball and the surrounding area provided some nice walks. The food was tasty too and we even got to try guinea pig!... More

It was amazing to be a guest on such a special spot. The Hacienda is pretty well conserved, maintained and run by very friendly and helpful staff. A great place to rest in between climbs as well. The food was was simple but amazing, especially breakfast that looked more like a banquet.

The Hacienda Guachala, is a cultural delight! I believe it is the oldest hacienda in Ecuador! Yes, it falls pray to power outages, but listening to the wind dance through the trees is worth the outage. You do need to wait for fresh food to be prepared, but hey, I prefer it fresh. If you sit on the gorgeous veranda... More

Out of hundreds of hotels around the world this was the absolute WORST ever! Why stay somewhere for the owner to teach you a history lesson or to tell you stories? We were misled to believe the hacienda had this "ambiance" and "charm". Well, we did research the history which is fascinating and believed the older reviews which listed it... More

Wow,can't believe the rave reviews this place received! Let me preface this review with saying that I grew up in an old home and that we rough camp frequently.We drove 2,000 km all over Ecuador staying in hotels to hostels,living out of backpacks and this was THE WORST! Being into historic places and architecture, we were really looking forward to... More

As one of the other reviewers said, staying here really feels like you are sleeping in a museum. I felt really privileged to have the chance to experience it. The owner Don Diego is a wonderful story teller and can also arrange some fascinating local trips e.g. To thermal spas, to flower plantations and to archeological sites.

This place is rich with history and you can sample Ecuadorian food while listening to the History of this beautiful place. Be sure to ask why there are two churches on the grounds..

We have never stayed overnight at Guachala but we have visited many times with friends, for a quick walk around and for longer visits with lunch. This authentic -- not glitzed up or hyped up -- hacienda is full of history, and is well worth a stop on the way to or from Quito from Otavalo or points north. You... More
