We only stayed two nights, but it was very relaxing..and very busy..at the same time! Our room was not the best in the house, but just adequate(the floor boards did squeak quite a bit).The view of the garden was lovely and the room was very quiet! Enjoyed the free drink bar..coffee,tea, water just a few steps away..dinner was fine..good service and professionally done! Great cook and waiter,Gonzalo Silva. He really was the star of the show..the go-to man for everything His English is very good, having been an English teacher in a former life..now, he spends 24 hours (literally!) helping guests,with check-in, tours to Cotopaxi..he was our private guide for the WHOLE day..arranging the "llama experience" (see photos),taking my wife to the doctor, serving dinner, taking us to the airport..just a TERRIFIC guy..I would go back to PapaGayo just to see him again! The rest of the staff were all very friendly, but only the girl from Germany really spoke English, but they all go out of their way to help you experience the whole thing! Highly RECOMMENDED! This is the REAL Ecuador! GO and ENJOY!. Say HI to Gonzalo for me!
