The stay was excellent. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The landscaping did not cease to impress. It is conveniently placed so as to easily access Baños. The food prepared by the staff was delicious and more than adequately served. The lodges superb with heated water and confort without the sacrifice of nature appeal.

Eugenio and Alvaro (the owners and administrators) are the real do-ers in making us to feel at home. We went to this eco-lodge for a special event that require a special diet and the use of their place at unusual hours (the event involve the use of traditional medicine).
