I stayed here for 5 nights as part of a photographic group. The view from the deck was outstanding, lots of hummingbirds at the feeders and the low cloud circleing over the mountains. The rooms are along one corrider leading from the reception/ seating area. This means that anyone sitting talking at the seating area can be heard by the... More

This place is for the birds but in a good way - ok- it's for the birders, of which I am not - I accompanied friends who are and they were in hummingbird paradise. The accommodations are very basic and clean; food is good, staff great. We were there 3 nights. The cooks adjusted meals to provide non-dairy vegetarian fare... More

We just returned from Ecuador, and stayed at Tandayapa Bird Lodge 4 nights. We purchased a package that included meals, bird guide and driver as well as lodging - it was an outstanding trip and my wife and I believe it was good value too. The Lodge is very clean and comfortable, with plenty of hot water for bathing, and... More

Beautiful view, lots of colorful birds extremely friendly staff, the rooms however could use some improvements like hot water for washing up after the day. I might suggest some sort of ATV to transport luggage up the hill. I would recommend goods sturdy foot wear with traction for the climb up the narrow stairs to the lodge.

Miguel was our birding guide and he was wonderful. Smiling and friendly and a hard-worker and of course knew every bird and his enthusiasm was catching. Stallone was his side-kick and was also great in everyway as were the ladies who prepared the delicious meals. Miguel and Stallone worked long hard hours, changing hats constantly. A mud slide meant that... More

I was part of a film crew filming a wildlife documentary and we stay for 4 nights in early September 2014. The staff are incredibly helpful, welcoming and knowledgeable. The food is to a very high standard and all of the overall amenities are very good. The scenery and wildlife is incredible. This place is for true wildlife and bird... More

It was extremely hard to find, not signposted and unknown to "locals". By the time we found it it was cold and dark. Though the rooms looked ok there was no hot water. For the price we paid we could have stayed at the local Hilton. I did get to enjoy the birds though.

Our room was clean and comfortable, as was the whole resort. The food was varied with a mixture of Ecuadorian and western dishes. We could not believe how many species and numbers of hummingbirds were there. We photographed about 18 species in our short time. Other birds and flowers also make this a great place for photographers. The resort is... More

This lodge is owned by Tropical birding, with whom we were doing a 3 1/2 week birding tour. We stayed here six nights. The lodge was some way from Quito but felt like another world. The entrance road was cobbled and a bit overgrown, which made a great entrance. From where the vehicles are parked there is a short but... More
