Reviewed 22 June 2012

We were at MadreTierra Hotel and Spa restaurant in May while visiting our Daughter and new husband. It was so pleasant to stay there. The staff was very helpful and food at the restaurant was great! Each morning was would have breakfast on the our dinning area over looking the mountains of region. The mornings were started with a great cup of coffee, fresh fruit, eggs. The leisure time was so special. Our rooms were very comfortable and clean. It was great! We would stay there again if we went back to Ecuador.

This place was truly amazing. Both Gayle and Peter the owners made us feel very comfortable during our stay at Medre Tierra. There both very involved with the day to day activities and take pride in there operation. The food was the freshest I've ever had at a restaurant and looked forward to every meal. The home made hummus and Guacamole with there fresh sun dried chips with flax seeds were so full of flavour. I have to also mention the coffee, "WOW" there coffee was the best I've ever had almost had a hint of chocolate flavour, the freshest coffee in the world comes from Vilcabamba.

We had a very early morning when we were departing for our flight to Quito, Gayle was so kind to offer preparing us with some muffins, cookies, banana and water for the drive to the airport in the morning. Such a warm gesture that my girlfriend and I truly appreciated.
What a great place and we both can't wait to get back to Madre Tierra to see the owners, experience there amazing food and views.

I rode my motorcycle down to Vilcabamba about ten days ago, stayed four nights. It's a very nice place and they are in the process of making some improvements. But the staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is really laid back. Overall value is excellent with Superior Rooms costing around $55/night..but you get your own cabin with two to three beds, a balony with a fabulous view. The bathrooms were very clean and hot water was never an issue. The location of Madre Tierra is just outside of the village and getting into town is quite easy. The staff was very helpful and arranged a horseback trip for me into the mountains. This is a very clean, well run hotel, with nice rooms, great value and excellent food. You won't go wrong staying here. Highly recommended.

Wow...what a wonderful time my friend and I had here for 10+ days. We felt like we belonged immediately. It was so relaxing and rejuvenating. The hotel is owned and run by two families who were all such loving and friendly people. Especially Peter and Gayle and Ally their daughter who were always so gracious and caring. All the staff were very friendly and helpful as well and we made some wonderful friends amongst them. The views of the Andes and the village of Vilcabamba from our private balcony and the restaurant's verandah were glorious and we spent a great deal of time admiring those views while drinking cups of herb tea. Our room was perfect and the service we received was wonderful. The lush gardens around the hotel are gorgeous including the pool area. They have an organic permaculture farm as part of the complex which provides the restaurant with wonderful fresh produce. The food was delicious and healthy with many raw food items to chose from (we loved the raw key lime pie!!) and a hearty breakfast was included in the room rate. They have a lovely Juice Bar too that serves yummy smoothies etc. Gayle was also very happy to help create a tasty dish to our liking when requested. The Spa treatments were excellent as well. I feel I have made some new friends for life. I miss being there and am making it a top priority to go back there some time soon.
