This is absolutely one of the best places I have ever stayed in. The surrounding area is beautiful and the lodge is very relaxing and laid back. After a busy week in the Galapagos, this was exactly what we needed.
The houses are nicely decorated, clean and very spacious. It feels like a home away from home. Coffee, tea and soft drinks, as well as bottled water are in the house. The fire was lit for us every night and in the morning when it was cool.
The service here was excellent. All of the staff were very friendly and the owner was always available to help arrange day trips or to make sure we had anything we needed. Truly one of the nicest people we met in Ecuador.
After a busy day shopping at the market, the mountaintop lodge was a perfect place to come back to and relax. I highly recommend staying here (it is only a $5 taxi ride to the market but feels like a world away).
I would definitely stay here again and recommend my friends and family do as well.
