Room was pretty spacious and even had a closet with some hangers to hang some clothes to dry out (rain, humid, you want to hang stuff to dry out). Would be nice with a few more hangers, though, and some towel racks to hang towels to dry. An electrical outlet present in room, but not too conveniently located for recharging...

This is the second time I have stayed at this lodge, the last time being two years ago. The access is via a steep road or zig zag path, so your fitness will improve. Rooms are large with twin beds, which are comfortable and warm. The windows have mesh over them so you can choose to open or close the...

This is a must visit place for Bird and Nature lovers. They have a great set-up for Hummingbirds multi-flash set up photography. The owner Iain Campbell is very knowledgable and friendly guy. This is one of the best Hummingbird Lodge with great food and serene location.

You go to Tandayapa for hummingbirds - to view or photograph them. For that it is perfect! The people are lovely and the service is great. We had a problem with water temp (too low), noise coming from dining area (too loud with large group and sound carries) and the food was just ok. That being said, we would return...

My sister and I took my parents to this lodge for two nights and we were all underwhelmed. Yes the patio with hummingbird feeders was quite impressive with many different species flying around but the seating was uncomfortable and the view of the gorgeous hillside and cloudforest was completely blocked. The patio that had comfortable seating where you could actually...

We were on a hummingbird photography workshop led by Matt Shetzer ( that was wonderful and deserves a review all on its own), and first on our stop and our stay was Tandayapa Bird Lodge. This was our first trip to Ecuador and therefore our first experience of a birding lodge in this beautiful country. It did not disappoint. It...

My first experience with a birding lodge in Ecuador and I was definitely not disappointed. This is a lovely spot with a nice big deck for watching the hummingbirds visit the feeders and perch on the low branches. Ricardo was very knowledgeable and helpful. Food was great, rooms comfortable and spotless.

Very friendly and helpful staff that served unique good food.Beautiful setting. Lots of Hummingbird species at your patio. Access to trails up and down towards the valley in the Andean rainforest. Staff arranged guided tours and travel. All quite a bargain.

We had a wonderful welcome from Nancy who made us feel right at home. Simple yet very tasty food, and decent sized, clean rooms with huge windows looking out onto the forest. Nancy and the volunteers (Kirsty and Sophie) couldn't do enough to make our stay and experience fabulous. Sophie and Kirsty had excellent bird knowledge which I appreciated as...

This lodge was our first while in Ecuador and did not disappoint. Wow! Amazing hummingbirds.... Feeding frenzy for sure. I could have sat on the back deck for hours watching the show but we had other locations to visit in the area which is another reason to stay at Tandayapa. There are so many birding opportunities within short driving distances....
