OUT OF THIS WORLD🌬️💖✨
Truly magical experience! Three days if pure bliss! We arrived at Hacienda Zuleta to a beautiful paradise. We were greeted by the friendly and professional staff to a warm welcome. We were taken to our beautiful rooms. Went and had lunch in the wonderful dining room. The food was traditional Ecuadorian cuisine. The grounds are lovely! Accommodations are deluxe. The bedding feels like you are sleeping on a cloud. The service is outstanding! Our host Amable took care of every detail that came to mind. The staff could not do enough for our family. We cannot wait to visit Hacienda Zuleta next year, it is OUT OF THIS WORLD!!
What an extraordinary place! An oasis of calm, with great personal service (e.g. Mauricio - and Marguerite of the owning family), and fresh open air all around. A sanctuary. And do visit the Condor Reserve where the superlative Jan will show you the condors, both captive (rescues, would no longer survive in the wild) and circling high above in the thermals.
Oasis of Calm
This place is wonderful. We have to leave tomorrow and I will be very sad as it’s such a lovely relaxing place to be. Our room is amazing. The bed is huge and so comfortable. We slept 10 hours last night. Breakfast is delicious but I was sad not to be able to taste everything because I was too full. I’ll try again tomorrow. The shower is a delight. Huge and with a rainhead so it’s perfect. We visited the cheese factory & the condor rescue - both well worth seeing. The condors even flew about while we were watching. Wellies are a good idea for the walk as it gets pretty muddy but the hotel have loads you can borrow. The vegetable garden is one of the best bits for me. They grow so much food here & it’s incredibly well managed. Thanks Maurizio for showing us around. Sitting by the fire on a comfy sofa drinking really nice complimentary tea & writing this. Trying not to think about leaving. If you can afford this, do it!
The hotel was an old hacienda with a lot of history and very pretty with lots of hikes or riding available. We had a large fairly simple room with a good shower room. The room was well equipped with sockets and a very comfortable bed. It also included a log burning stove. This was our only problem with the hotel. The bedroom was either exceedingly hot if the stove was on or cold if not. We were also provided with hot water bottles which was rather nice. The staff were excellent, the food was good and nicely served.
Great activities - homey vibe
A great hotel where the activities made the stay. Here's what we did: - horseback riding. - visit to a condor conservation center - remote picnic - downhill mountain biking - hiking some nearby peaks - milking a cow (a must!) The rooms feel more like a home than a hotel. Throughout the property are several living rooms serving evening house made cheese in front of a roaring fire. Food is fine - enjoyable but nothing to get excited about. Most meals were a soup followed by an entree. Not quite as luxurious as the price might have you believe (especially the honor bar prices which are silly for make-your-own drinks). During our stay we had to vacate our room by 3PM, well in advance of our 6PM departure, despite the hotel being 75% empty.
