I personally did not like my experience with San Jorge. They came across as really money hungry to me and the prices they charge for food and dinner are more expensive than in many US places. Food is really cheap in Ecuador so I wonder if this is really neccessary? Also, they like to organise packages for you which end...

San Jorge Eco-Lodge recognizes that the guest was not happy with the prices at San Jorge/Quito lodge. We are not a hostel but an eco-resort and botanical reserve located within minutes of Quito, a large international city. San Jorge maintains 300 acres of forest, huge gardens, pristine trails, beautiful rooms and first class services. We compare our prices with the...

Granted it has been a few years since my husband and I spent several nights at the lodge. I was recently asked about it on the message board and realized I was remiss in not writing a review. In checking recent reviews it seems it's still as enchanting as we remember. We spent a week in bustling Quito then 4...

My wife and I spent 7 nights on the "Magic Birding Circuit" organized thru San Jorge - Quito. Altogether we spent 3 nights at San Jorge - Quito, 3 nights at San Jorge - Tandayapa and 1 night at San Jorge - Milipe. It's the dry season and slow season for birding, so we were about the only ones on...

I have some 1,400 birds from seven continents on my life list. I wanted to add the birds of the mid-to upper Andes, especially hummingbirds. To this end, I found the SAN JORGE ECO-LODGES & BOTANICAL RESERVES in Ecuador. They have three lodges at different altitudes to give a whole range of eco-systems. The guides were remarkable both in bird...

We stayed at the main lodge just up the hill. Our daughter was ill and the staff were extremely accommodating. We moved to the Radisson the second night. Sadly this placed has been left to go down hill as a property. The two chaps that were running it were great and tried their best to keep everyone happy. For bird...

Approximately 30 minutes outside Quito city you feel like staying in a botanical garden, in the mountains (3000 - 3200m high) with fantastic fiew on the town. Whole the Hotel looks like an old spanish Hacienda and you´ll feel at home directly. Jorge the owner and all staff will help you to feel comfortable at this exciting place. When weather...

Starting with the Internet booking by Cheryl everyone at San Jorge Eco-Lodges goes out of their way. Approximately 20 minutes outside of Quito this very charming old hacienda sits on a hill overlooking the town. The rooms in the Hacienda are charming, except for the charmless, cavernous bathroom. At night the staff will light a fire in the fireplace for...

San Jorge Eco-Lodge and Botanical Reserve is amazing. Quito, while quaint, is somewhat crowded. Yet this beautiful hotel is located on a mountain overlooking the city and it is a world apart. Serene, historic, and great service. I felt like I was going back in time to the days of the Spanish hacienda.

I should start by saying that we aren't bird-watching people - if you are, just take all the accolades I am about to heap on Jorge and his team and just multiply them tenfold.
