From the minute you arrive to the minute you depart this Hacienda is absolutely wonderful. We were greeted and welcomed by the owner and the manager and of course the dogs.
The rooms are tastefully decorated, comfortable and clean and so charming. We had two rooms separated by a living area with chairs and a fireplace and a large window with a beautiful view of the volcano.
We contacted the hotel in advance and arranged horseback riding. The dogs guided us on our rides and were pleasant companions who ensured our safety and guided us back to the hacienda.
Everyone was so accommodating and friendly. The food was also very good.
Hacienda Manteles is a place where you truly feel welcome and that the owner, manager and staff are honestly wonderful people who take pride in being ambassadors for Ecuador and in the hospitality which they offer.
I would recommend Hacienda Manteles to anyone visiting Ecuador.
