Stayed at the HaciendaRumiloma for 5 days, and had some half day cooking classes with Chef Anita and staff. First of all, the Hacienda is a lovely property, with large comfortable suites( individual fireplaces with hot water bottles delivered to the foot of your bed each night!!), llamas roaming the property, spectacular views. My husband and I got a much-needed rest...but we also enjoyed the culinary experience. Each day, we worked with Chef Anita to create a luncheon menu( locro, ceviche, pescado encocado, for example) and then we got to enjoy it! Trips to the local markets helped to round out our understanding of the cuisine. This trip was a perfect mix of relaxation and activity.

This was suggested by our travel agent in the UK as a place to stay for our final night in Ecuador at the end of a three week trip. It was bliss! The restaurant food was outstanding, the bar quirky, and welcoming, and the room..........well! A two storey extravaganza of wonder with so many artifacts and delights that we could have spent our whole stay there and not come out at all. The service was outstanding and we only wish that we could have spent more time her to explore the grounds. This really is a lovely place.

We stayed here before going into the Amazon with friends and kids. The rooms are so incredibly decorated and cozy. Wood burning stoves are lit for you before you get back. They were incredibly helpful in organizing excursions that were age and experience appropriate. Fully recommend this hotel and restaurant
This was our second trip here.

A beautiful hotel overlooking the Ecuadorian capitol city of Quito. Located in a beautiful setting with mountain views in the daytime and the sparkling lights of Quito below you at night. The service was great and the food was the best I had having stayed at several haciendas in Ecuador. However, what really sets Rumiloma apart was the way all the rooms were furnished and decorated. I have stayed at many top level hotels and while all of them probably deserved the 4 or 5 stars, they all had a sterile same as the other hotel feel. At Rumiloma I felt more like I was visiting a good friend who was putting me up in their guest house. There was an instant feel of warmth that made you forget you were staying at a hotel. No two rooms were alike in design or furnishings. A wonderful place to relax or as a base to explore the area in and around Quito. I hope I have the opportunity to stay there again.

Our family, together with three other families w children, stayed at the Rumiloma after our adrenaline-filled week in the Galapagos. We were all booked in big name hotels but friends (who stayed there a week before) were able to convince us to move. When we drove up the driveway that evening, met Amber, saw our rooms and had our first drink in front of her fireplace, we knew we made the right decision. The welcome was so cozy and warm - as was the place! We were in a wonderfully decorated hacienda with first class food and wonderful people! And to think that this is all only 15 minutes away from the center of town. The kids were equally delighted with outdoor space, the big split-level rooms and the friendliness of the staff. The following morning, we woke up to squeals of excitement from our 9-year old: "Mom, Dad, there's a llama on our doorstep!". And the surprises wouldn't end. We loved the little details like the pre-breakfast tray (hot chocolate, coffee, muffins) brought to your room before you hit the breakfast buffet --- served with a warm 'Buenas Dias' and meant to wake you up with a smile. The cuisine, rooms, grounds, staff were top class, all orchestrated to perfection by the hostess-with-the-mostest, Amber de Freire. She definitely goes above and beyond to give you and your family that her fantastic version of a memorable and unique Quito experience.

Wow! It's boggles the mind to think about the time, thought, expense and love that must have gone into creating this place, an aerie high above Quito. The rooms are luxurious, tastefully decorated and amazingly comfortable. Ours was on two levels, bedroom above and living room below. The living room had a wood burning fireplace and a large picture window with a view of the city far below. The bedroom had an identical view and a great king size bed. The bathroom had the most beautiful toilet (yes, toilet!!) that I have ever seen and the tub/shower, the same bird's eye view of Quito. Sometimes the city disappears into the fog and then reappears as if by magic, which is especially beautiful at night. Sunrise was also particularly peaceful and lovely. The main building (below the rooms) houses the dining room and pub. Both are beautifully decorated and boast that magnificent view. Breakfast was an extragavant feast served in a room downstairs next to the pub. Our only disappointment was with the food at lunch and dinner, which did not match our expectations (overcooking seemed to be the Achilles heel). The staff was extremely friendly - eager to help and show the place off. Rumiloma is a gem for those who want to be pampered. The price here is as steep as the road up. But if one takes the time to savor everything this oasis offers, it is well worth it.

My husband, daughter and I spent several days in Rumiloma in July. My seven-year old loved the place and we did some exciting day trips, all arranged by the Rumiloma staff, to places like the butterfly garden, Cloud Forest, and the equator. The food was as good as any top-notch restaurant in the US. The rooms may seem a bit pricey, but once you see the rates on dull and dingy Quito hotels, you will realize this place is worth the extra cash.
