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

We spent a week at Tandayapa Bird Lodge in early May, having had heard about it for years. The location is excellent and the property has wonderful feeders for hummingbirds, plus great trails for walking. We travelled on our own which made our birding slower, but information is good and resources are available for help with ID etc. Pablo does... More

We arrived to find several people sitting behind huge cameras with at least 2 flash guns on stands each and lenses that would double as drain pipes, taking fantastic pictures of humming birds on feeders. Each had 10's of thousands of pounds worth of equipment. My wife quickly hid her little panasonic(which takes great pics)! And I didn't get my... More

While we are not professional birders or photographers, we love experiencing nature and observing birds when the opportunity presents itself. While in Ecuador, we really wanted visit the cloud forest, and picked Tandayapa so we could be guided to see some birds too. The place is quite secluded, really calm and has comfortable rooms. Food is tasty, and the very... More

I spent 7 nights at this lodge. I joined a friend for the first 4 days with a pre-arranged photography tour. Pablo was our guide and proved to not only be extemely knowledgable and helpful in finding and photographing birds, but was lots of fun. He had a great sense of humor and added to our experience at the lodge... More

I decided to end my trip in Ecuador in the cloud forest at Tandayapa Bird Lodge and what a great end to my holiday. The lodge was very comfortable, with spacious rooms, clean toilets and comfortable beds. Suggest asking for a blanket as the nights are cold. The bird feeders on the balconies of the lodge, attract many species of... More

A birders paradise set the cloud forest. Comfortable and relaxed lodge with good fresh food. Lots of information given about bird species. Guides like Pablo and Jeremy are very passionate about their chosen subject. If you are like us and not avid birders, then 2 nights is perfectly enough time to see some wonderful birds. An hours drive takes you... More
