From the moment we arrived at Hacienda Santa Ana we were relaxed and felt at home. The open fire and warm drink brought to us by Patricio followed by Miguel, the owner, sharing his family's involvement in the Hacienda were lovely personal touches.
Originally a Jesuit retreat, in opening the Hacienda as a hotel the family decided to develop a place that had a sense of belonging, rest and reflection. Surrounded by the beauty of the Cotopaxi National Park both the interior and exterior of Santa Ana more than achieve this.
There is no Internet or phone connection and yes you do have to go along a bumpy road to get to Santa Ana but that is what helps make it so special.
The service was spot on, friendly and aware of our needs but not intrusive. The beds and rooms were sensational, and the hot water bottle was a particularly nice surprise.
The meals were delicious and very reasonable and we were lacking for nothing.
An absolute highlight had to be the walk to the waterfalls with Martine and Patricio through local farms and pathways. We got to meet people from the community, see and hear about medicinal plants, see amazing vistas of the falls, community and surrounding volcanoes and above all hear local community stories - a very special morning.
Without a doubt we wanted to stay longer and certainly highly recommend Hacienda Santa Ana.
