I simply can't say enough about this charming hotel which is set in a spectacular setting. Gabrielle and his wife immediately embrace you and make you feel like you are family. The rooms are clean and so charming and have wood-burning fireplaces which they set up for you each evening. There is a living room actually a couple where you... More

My husband and I spent a day horseback riding with Gabriel before our trip to the Galapagos and we're thrilled with the experience. Gabriel was extremely friendly and managed our trip very well. Having the day ride all to ourselves was a big bonus! While we didn't have the opportunity to stay at the Hacienda overnight Gabriel still made us... More

We did the Cloud Forest and Volcano rides in July 2015. In all honesty it exceeded our expectations in every way. Gabriel and his family and staff are wonderful hosts. The horses are loved and well treated. The accommodation and food are five-star. The Hacienda is absolutely beautiful. This does not even mention the rides which were spectacular. Everything from...

My girfriend and I stayed two days at the hacienda. The room was really beautiful and it was fun walking the grounds of this old estate. We ate family style in the informal dining room and the home-cooked meals were great. My lady friend had no riding experience other than a bad wreck as a child. The gave her a... More

Our Active Adventures - Tapir group stayed here for one incredible night. The Hacienda is well laid out in the midst of a beautiful landscape. The accommodations and hospitality are first-class. And despite the rainy weather, our horseback ride went without a hitch. Highly recommend staying here. Truly remarkable experience.

The hacienda is beautiful, food is delicious, rooms very comfortable, views of surrounding volcanic mountains stunning, hosts welcoming, and best of all, the horseback riding is unbelievably great. I rode with Gabriel, Rodrigo, and four other guests for a week. Horses are surefooted on the rocky climbs, scenery we rode past was fantastic, I have nothing but good to say... More

From the century-old family home & farm to the breathtaking beauty of a horse ride through the Andes, you will never forget your time here. Gabriel and his family help even the most inexperienced horse riders learn to ride and experience the beauty from a viewpoint you've never had before.

My husband and I had a superb time at the Hacienda la Alegria. Maricio and Gabriel took pains to make us feel welcome, and the service otherwise was top notch. Our room was luxurious yet comfortable and welcoming with a terrific view of the mountains. The hacienda and grounds are gorgeous. The hacienda specializes in horseback adventures ranging from a...

During my layover in Quito, I spent a day together with my KLM friend and colleague at La Hacienda Alegria. Beautiful place with lots of atmosphere. We had a wonderful time, lovely hike and delicious lunch together with Patricia. After that she took us to see the milking of the cows. Thank you for the warm welcome, we felt so... More
