This is a great place for a relaxing lunch not far from Cuenca. The grounds are beautiful, and if it is a nice day, eating on the patio is refreshing. When they have a buffet, the selection is adequate, and the setting is hard to beat.

We had bad experience in this place . Dusty curtains which generate allergy. Structure of the bed failed. Basic breakfast. Not worth the cost. Very nice place to stay for the day but not for a night. I hope owners take care of this for next guests. Sorry to say the truth

Was surprised by my partner with a stay here for my birthday. April 5th this year is Easter which can be a good or bad thing in a Latin American country (depending on your preference). Good news for me the place had no one staying here except the 2 of us since a quiet retreat was definitely what I was...

What's not to like? For families this hacienda is perfect: animals to pet, a well-kept pool, large grounds with multiple playgrounds, and ponies. For parents: a bit of quiet in a beautiful valley, plus excellent food and good service. We had planned to go explore the rest of the valley, but ended up spending the entire time on the hacienda...

We have had 2 lunches here lately and each has been delicious. Even the coffee is excellent. The grounds of this resort are magnificently landscaped in many colors. Although we did not stay overnight this time, we will do that in the future.

I didn't stay here, I only had lunch. The hacienda is located in Paute, near the three country arts and crafts villages of Sigsig, Chordeleg, and Gualaceo. There are also large rose farms located in Paute. This is an extremely attractive and well maintained property on many acres. The buildings are spread out with courtyards and terraces between the buildings....

This hacienda is absolutely beautiful. We went her pe with a small group for lunch. The food was very good! Appetizers ranged from empanadas to soup....all were very good. Then the mains consisted of Ecuadorian plates of chicken and beef. We sat outside and had a very enjoyable time. Definitely would go again!

“Get one of the larger/more expensive rooms if you have little ones--they're spacious enough for 3-4. The one we took, had a bit of a view and some sun. We checked out all the rooms, and thought they all looked decent, however.”

“I would think that a room on the second floor at the front of the building would be ideal as one would have a view over the property. We were on the main floor around the breakfast area but it was private and very quiet.”
