Important: This hotel is now called the Tagara. It is tough to find things in Ecuador and having the wrong name on the signs does not help. This locale is beautiful, the pool gorgeous, and the staff, especially the general manager, Bernard, are wonderful. But this is more of a corporate retreat in style. However, a great escape from Quito or a great place to spend a night when making the drive from the coast to Quito. For Westerners I think the nightly stay with included meals is a fair price. It lacks some fine touches: no bathrobes, no AC, the hot tub is filled by transferring water by bucket from the main pool, and the rooms can have a certain scent to them, which is understandable in the humidity. The staff is lovely: warm, helpful, humorous, humble. The WiFi was down due to a lightening strike when we were there for a night in June. There might be equally nice places near by, but I do recommend this one, just please change the name to match the signs on the road: very confusing! I also note we easily reached this hotel in our compact rental car: the roads are very good.
