Hacienda La Cienega
Hostería La Ciénega is a characterful hotel converted from one of Ecuador’s oldest haciendas, dating from 1580.
Set in extensive grounds it is approached along an avenue of fragrant eucalyptus trees. Its well regarded restaurant, 34 guest rooms and suites are set around a series of attractive courtyard gardens, some of which are recent additions.
La Ciénega offers rooms with colonial and 19th century furnishings and has many other reminders of its past, including a private chapel.
Horse riding is usually available for guests.
