I was part of a film crew filming a wildlife documentary and we stay for 4 nights in early September 2014. The staff are incredibly helpful, welcoming and knowledgeable. The food is to a very high standard and all of the overall amenities are very good. The scenery and wildlife is incredible. This place is for true wildlife and bird...

It was extremely hard to find, not signposted and unknown to "locals". By the time we found it it was cold and dark. Though the rooms looked ok there was no hot water. For the price we paid we could have stayed at the local Hilton. I did get to enjoy the birds though.

Our room was clean and comfortable, as was the whole resort. The food was varied with a mixture of Ecuadorian and western dishes. We could not believe how many species and numbers of hummingbirds were there. We photographed about 18 species in our short time. Other birds and flowers also make this a great place for photographers. The resort is...

This lodge is owned by Tropical birding, with whom we were doing a 3 1/2 week birding tour. We stayed here six nights. The lodge was some way from Quito but felt like another world. The entrance road was cobbled and a bit overgrown, which made a great entrance. From where the vehicles are parked there is a short but...

We spent a week at Tandayapa Bird Lodge in early May, having had heard about it for years. The location is excellent and the property has wonderful feeders for hummingbirds, plus great trails for walking. We travelled on our own which made our birding slower, but information is good and resources are available for help with ID etc. Pablo does...

We arrived to find several people sitting behind huge cameras with at least 2 flash guns on stands each and lenses that would double as drain pipes, taking fantastic pictures of humming birds on feeders. Each had 10's of thousands of pounds worth of equipment. My wife quickly hid her little panasonic(which takes great pics)! And I didn't get my...

While we are not professional birders or photographers, we love experiencing nature and observing birds when the opportunity presents itself. While in Ecuador, we really wanted visit the cloud forest, and picked Tandayapa so we could be guided to see some birds too. The place is quite secluded, really calm and has comfortable rooms. Food is tasty, and the very...

I decided to end my trip in Ecuador in the cloud forest at Tandayapa Bird Lodge and what a great end to my holiday. The lodge was very comfortable, with spacious rooms, clean toilets and comfortable beds. Suggest asking for a blanket as the nights are cold. The bird feeders on the balconies of the lodge, attract many species of...
