I have been remiss in my delayed review. When we walked into our bedroom, with a huge picture window facing the meadows and the mountains in the back, we knew we were in a special place. We felt so relaxed and pampered in this buccolic setting. The horseback riding was exciting and strenuous, the food delicious, the hot tub at... More

Hacienda La Alegria was the highlight of our delightful 17-day trip to Ecuador, which encompassed Quito, several peaks in the Andes, Banos, and a road trip down the coast. What’s more, having stayed in a variety of accommodations – chain, boutique, B&B etc – in over 70 countries, we can say with confidence that this hacienda leads the field in... More

We went to the hacienda for a day of horseback riding and a night at the hotel. We enjoyed our two rides around the hacienda, had some delicious meal at lunch and for diner; the breakfast was also nice. We spent some time visiting the lamas, vicunas and alpacas of the farm at the end of the afternoon. Our two... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about Hacienda La Alegria. The accomodations were fabulous, the grounds spectacular, Gabriel and his staff couldn't have treated us better if they tried, and it was an animal lover and Equestrian paradise. Gabriel arranged for someone to pick us up at the airport and for a guide to take us journeying the area the... More

Unfortunately we weren't able to make it to the Hacienda because of a plane delay, but Gabriel kindly refunded our entire deposit. He was most gracious in that and in all our contact in making the reservation. We will definitely visit if we're ever back in Quito!

We were at the Hacienda for a few days in March 2013, after we spent a week in the Galapagos and two or three days in Quito. This is a B & B and riding operation, also a small working dairy farm that has been in the owner's family for generations. My wife had been there for a week a... More

We loved Hacienda la Alegria. Patty and Gabriel were wonderful hosts, and Gabriel is a great teacher -- we had barely ridden horses before, and ended up learning to trot and cantor in only a few days. The food was delicious -- the soups were a highlight. (Also, bonus that beer was offered with lunch and wine offered with dinner.)... More

Hacienda La Alegria is a fantastic place to spend time in the Pichincha area. We used it as a base for day hiking at Ruminahui Volcano, Iliniza Norte, and Quilotoa Crater. We did not ride horses, but drove to these sites to begin our hikes. The hacienda is centrally located to be within 1 1/2 hours from these hikes. The... More

There are no words to describe the wonderful experience we had with Alegria. We went already on 4 trips with Gabriel. And all of them were magnificent! The Chagra Ride with the Parade in Machachi, the Cotopaxi Ride, the Cloud Forest…. Our kids, some of our friends and ourselves enjoyed each of the horseback riding trips so much. It is... More
