My wife and I spent two nights here with our daughter and oldest grandson. Accommodations were comfortable, food was excellent, opportunities for extended walks, tour the grounds, wander into the town of Zuleta and visit local crafts people. Had we been horse riders, we could have done that as well. Not sure the views are of mountains - if mountains...

Incredibly beautiful working hacienda in the picturesque Andean Highlands where we were treated like royalty. The staff is so nice, patient, friendly and accommodating, genuinely appreciative that you have chosen to be their guest. Our guest room was delightful with a small wood stove to warm us at night, a comfortable bed, private bath and view of the courtyard. The...

This hacienda is just great. First of all, it is an absolutely beautiful old building, that oozes historical charm out of every cobblestone of its wonderful large courtyard. Then, it offers so much to see and do, from walking in the Andes, to horse riding, fishing, milking the cows, seeing the condors at the rehab centre, to watching the hummingbirds....

My wife and I stayed at the Hacienda for two nights on our way to Quito and the Galapagos. The house and rooms are very comfortable and the walking trails well laid out and challenging. If you don't horseback ride there aren't a lot of activities. Meals and hospitality of staff are excellent. Meals are communal so be prepared to...

Dear Robert and family, Thank you for your review, and I do understand your point about the comunal table, it is not for everyone , that's is why we are now building our new dinning room. This new space build in the oldest part of the farm, will have the same family style character , with all the sitting options...

I cannot say enough good things about this hacienda. It is still owned by the family and Fernando (one of the grandsons) still lives and runs the operations. The countryside is gorgeous with expansive windows to always ensure you have the best view. Unique touches like fresh roses are delivered throughout the buildings on Fridays make this place standout. So...

I have to say that this was one of the most special places I've ever visited. Everything about it was out of this world - the facility, the food, the activities and of course the people (and owner). Really felt at home. Loved the wine and cheese in front of the fireplace at 5:00 pm daily. Our room was so...

Hacienda Zulenta is a beautiful property in the highlands of Ecuador. The staff is wonderful, and has tremendous pride in all that they do. The common rooms of the hacienda are elegant and filled with history of the area and the owners (former presidents of Ecuador). You are likely to meet a least one family member while you are there...

Stayed her in July 2016, not cheap but worth every penny.

Fabulous. Couldn't have been more perfect. Imagine staying at someone's luxurious ranch and having every last desire catered to. We loved it! The staff is always there when you need them, but you are also incredibly independent on the grounds - exploring as you wish. Nothing is off limits. We will definitely be back!

  • Old embroidery samples reflect Zuleta's role in the industry. (That's my scarf)
  • A comfortable triple room (the boys' larger side with a patio is too messy to photograph!)
  • Fabulous roses everywhere! Everything is simple and beautiful.
