What a find! Our driver located this Hostal and what a surprise awaited us behind a stucco wall with a plain wooden door. We were greeted and welcomed into this little paradise. The reception area opened up into a dining room, sitting area, bar and entry into a courtyard that was home to a very elusive long tailed hummingbird. Our...

My daughter and I booked a one night stay and then were unable to travel because she became ill. They had the ability to extend our stay an extra night, good business right?! But I want to comment on how kind and thoughtful they were regarding her. Specific tea was suggested to help her and specific food requests were honored....

We spent two nights at Posada del Quinde recently. Susy was a dream to work with! Every e-mail of inquiry I exchanged with her was answered promptly and clearly in English.

We stayed at Posada del Quinde for three nights. After a few hours, we were dreaming about living there permanently! This hotel is more like a very spacious country mansion.
