Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

What a lovely place. Visited 1 night with a Gate 1 tour. This place was a joy. The beautiful setting, great food, the queso fresco made that day,comfortable room, wonderful staff, and a cow to milk-what more could one ask for. I want to return and stay longer.

This hacienda wasn't just a place to stay, but a unique experience on it's own. This place really makes you feel like you are a member of the family who owned the hacienda and surrounding few rooms and surrounding farm. The members of the hacienda don't need to lock the doors of the main mansion/gorgeous living room and guests are welcome to make themselves at home. The staff was incredibly friendly, especially Fernando, who bears a resemblance to Barack Obama. The staff will take you on a tour of the farm, and you're free to pick from the garden as you please as well as play fetch with the dogs in the mornings and admire the amazing view surrounding the property. Gorgeous, fun, serene, with amazing meals.

Magnificent farm and hacienda with spectacular views of Tungurahua volcano. Meals were served in the main house with beautiful table settings and furnishings. Food was delicious, prepared with local produce and fish. Very warm and cozy atmosphere, friendly staff and host. Couldn't have asked for a better ending for a memorable trip to a fantastic country.

Room Tip: I heard some reference to a moldy smell in one of the rooms in main house. Since this is the oldest...

The staff here could not be more helpful. The hacienda is not easy to get to but once you arrive you are awed by the beautiful gardens and incredible view. Our dining experience was very good. The trout and camarones were delicious choices and the papaya turnovers were divine. Our room was clean cozy but the old wood floors were incredibly creaky and uneven. The walls are also on the thin side so expect to hear your neighbors.

We rode through beautiful scenery and winding, narrow roads beyond Banos wondering "How did anyone ever find this place? Where are we going?" To our delight, we arrived at the delightful Hacienda Manteles.
Our greeting and the sustained hospitality at the Hacienda made us feel more like a family friend than a paying guest. Having a room in the main house, just down the hall from the living and dining rooms, furthered the family feeling. Our room was furnished with two cloud comfortable queen beds, antique stand mirror, dresser, nightstands, and seating bench. There was also a small wood burning stove which we didn't use. The bedding was excellent and provided more than enough heat. The bathroom had a tub-shower with very good water pressure and hot water for a relaxing shower after a day of travel to the Hacienda. Room 3 has no view, but the living is only steps away and has fantastic views.
The local volcano, Tungurahua, presented a show on the evening we were there. It was magnificent to see nature's show.
Dinner and breakfast were very good and exceeded expectations since there was a large group at this time. No request was too much trouble for the staff.
Since our stay was only for an evening, we were unable to participate in the many activities available in the immediate area.
Internet was sketchy and the password was not readily handed out. Just sit back, enjoy the views,RELEX , and use the internet another day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the volcano.

This is a working farm where the main house has been turned into a hotel, several other buildings have been turned into rooms as well, all decorated with old world charm. The main house still retains it's origins , living room, dining room, both meant to be enjoyed by all. All the food is as fresh as one can get and beautifully prepared. This is a place that needs at least 3 or 4 days to fully explore it's beauty.
