They have very good food, great staff and great mountain views as well as beautifull surroundings where you can go out for a walk or ride bikes they rent there (not cheap though, 10 dollars... More

We had a wonderful stay at Papagayo. Beautiful location with mountain views, the hosteria is a good place for relaxing, horse riding, climbing Cotopaxi and more. The staff are great people. The food was delicious. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable, and there's also a fun jacuzzi(: I truly recommend this place, one of the best in South America!

There is a very popular MTB race that takes place in PapaGayo, so this was the second year we stayed here before the race. Last year we took the last room available, which was pretty small, cold and far away from the main building. It got pretty noisy in the morning, when the race organizers arrived. This year we stayed... More

We stayed 3 nights and it was one of the best we had in Ecuador. The room is spacious and include all amenities. Breakfast is the best we had and other meals were of high quality. It has a nice jaccuzi, wifi and heating in the room. The hosteria is a farm with nice garden and various animals.

I spent a total of 6 nights at the wonderful Hosteria Papagayo as part of an acclimatisation program. It's a terrific base for tackling volcanoes within an hour's drive of the most popular climbs. Exceptional food and drink at every meal, great WiFi and fantastic service. Nothing is too much trouble - I cannot praise Luis, Raoul and the team... More

I spent one night at Hosteria Papagayo. It was booked as the part of the 2-days tour to Cotopaxi and Quilatoa. The place is so lovely. There is a small "zoo" with animals, children must adore it. Lovely garden, where you can read a book or just relax after you hiking or horseback riding tours. The breakfast is included and... More

This delightful inn is situated just of the PanAmerican Highway about an hour drive from Quito. There is short access along cobbled and uneven road but despite close proximity to the busy road the place is an oasis of tranquillity. The welcome starts on arrival with tea and chocolate cake served at check-in. The hacienda once belonged to the family... More
