Stayed in the (cramped but cheap) dorms with a friend for 6 nights while we did acclimatising hikes, leading up to Cotopaxi. Everything was very easily organised with Gulliver through the helpful Papagayo staff. A lot of close attractions to see on rest days, just ask the front desk! Cotobikes, a day trip to Cotopaxi with a brief hike, lunch, and downhill biking, was a good day out.

No kitchen facilities, but the restaurant meals were reasonably priced and delicious (Papagayo Burger, yum!!!). Ask for your beers cold, and your Jacuzzi hot!

They had puppies, and we talked our way into a free Flamenco show!

Hosteria is in beautful gardens not far from Cotapaxi. Rooms were spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The restaurant provided delicious and well-priced meals. The staff member we dealt with seemed to be very stressed out and had a slight attitude which made us feel uncomfortable and was the only thing which detracted from our stay. We spent one day horse-riding which would have been fantastic on a clear day as you would have views of the volcanoes. However, during the wet season all we saw was farmland (which I still enjoyed). Overall it was a lovely place to stay with exceptional value that I would highly recommend.

I must say, this place is spectacular!
Its a little tricky to get there if you are driving a small car due to it being in the Ecuadorian highlands. Being only 45 minutes approximately from the city of Quito, its enough distance to forget about the busy city and unfold yourself to nature and relaxation.
To be honest its a very accurate place to go with your partner, being romantic and adventurous at the same time (You can even show your "awesome" outdoor skills)
I give such high rating to the hotel because it has many activities to be done, and the prices remain even in the high seasons. The rooms are very comfy, the attention is EXCELLENT, the staff is always looking for your maximum comfort and assistance, always offering with the best attitude any type of help.
Also as soon as I arrived, the person guiding us to our room even told us about the history of the hotel, making it a highly curious place to be in, with alot to tell about.
It has activities for all tastes, with good food and a nice deck to each or chill, a minibar, an amazing jacuzzi, and expeditions to Mt.Cotopaxi, Mt.Corazon, Mt.Quilotoa, hiking, horseback riding, and much more!

Great place, clean, awesome service, excellent food, the personal is very polite, we had a little problem with my friend glasses and the lobby personal did everything the can to help us repair his glasses, the hot tub is great, in the beginning the shower in the rooms didn't has hot water but once we tell the personal the problem they immediately solved the problem, they have a nice foosball, wireless internet (this is been written from the restaurant of the hotel) and they have nice tours, in bikes, horses or tracking. if you want to climb the Cotopaxi volcano they have the equipment for it. The bar has great music and good cocktails.

I totally recommend this place for a weekend or a full week trip.

it's really cheap for what it is.

I had with my boyfriend an unforgettable holiday in PapaGayo! it is really a charming old farmhouse in the middle of the andes. I´ve never slept higher (3200m!!!) and had better wake ups than in the fresh air of the high mountains and the great view all around. the team in the place is really charming and helpfull. we felt like a guests in a family. The kitchen is amazing, thanks to the cook David! our room was in a lovely style mix of modern and farmhouse with a warm and cosy bed beside the fireplace, which was enlighted by the stuff in the evening. we had a lot of nice trips vom PapaGayo to the area around, what we enjoyed a lot. If u really want to fell the character of Ecuador´s nature and people, u should not miss a stay in PapaGayo!

we stayed 2 nights and could have happily stayed longer.
the staff couldn't have been more helpful, the jacuzzi was great after a day travelling or biking or horse riding, lovely furnishings and grounds, blazing fire when cold, great food (massive servings), the guide for our hike and bike of cotopaxi - pedro - was informative, passionate and helpful, the equipment was fine, even drove us to the bus we were taking cos they didn't want us to have to walk in the rain.
