i was lucky to get an upgrade in one of the bungalows, surrounded by nature, very quiet and comfortable. It is a very traditional lodge, staff is very friendly and helpful, they can arrange everything around, and also a guide, Jonny was such a nice guy, he heard every bird, and spotted it for sure. There are paths around the lodge where you can walk by yourself, but it helps so much to be guided, i didn't needed my car for 5 days, i felt like queen mum. The lodge has a very high standard of the corona-measures. From the mirador you can hear the road, but the birdlife doesn't care about that, so many hummingbirds and others birds.

We spent two nights at the Sachatamia Lodge as a base from which to go birding, as part of a trip we'd arranged with an independent guide. The rooms are excellent and the food very good as well (especially the trout), but the standout is Johnny. He was amazing and did just about everything. When our guide had vehicle issues, Johnny agreed to drive us (with our guide) for about 8 hours the next day so that we didn't miss anything on our itinerary. When we set out in the morning, only to run into stopped traffic due to a landslide, Johnny stayed with the car while the landslide got cleared, enabling us to travel by foot with our guide to the lek we were trying to reach. After he met back up with us several hours later, he was helpful in pointing out additional birds. We also arranged for him to give us an evening tour at Sachatamia. He knew that my wife wanted to see frogs in particular, and he was amazing at locating them (especially the tiny Pinocchio frog) and very patient at finding the scientific names of each species for us. He also pointed out lots of other great evening critters--insects, lizards, and so forth. Oh, and in addition to all this, he was our waiter each night at the lodge. I think he's just superman! Our stay at Sachatamia would have been fine if we hadn't encountered Johnny, but his kind, patient, flexible, and accommodating service--coupled with a willingness to go way above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing experience--really set this part of our trip apart.

In this beautifull part of Ecuador, the Cloud Forest, only 1 1/2 hour from Quito we visited with friends yesterday and for lunch time we came to Sachatamia Restaurant that was a nice experience full of fun and good food, good service and ambiance.

Rooms have portable heaters and dehumidifiers. They are clean and spacious. Food is great. Service superb. Lots of birds with feeders in several areas. And birds in the forests with hiking trails available. Good idea to wear rubber boots because sometimes the trails are muddy. The cottages are set apart from the main area and it's a comfortable walk past some of the feeders to reach the reception/dining area. Unlike some of the others who reviewed this property, I was not aware of mustiness in the room.

The loaction is good, with lodges opening to the forest. The rooms were comfortable and clean, but smelt a little musty. The food was fine, though perhaps rather pricey. The pool and hot tub were lovely. I felt that the hotel was rather over-priced for its offering.
