We loved staying at Hacienda El Porvenir. Roberto was a wonderful host. The hacienda is very beautiful, nestled in the base of Cotopaxi. We stayed in a room that was cozy and appreciated the hot water bottles in bed to keep us toasty. The food in the restaurant was top notch-very creative menu and wholesome food. As a vegetarian, I...

We spent two nights in December at the Hacienda. We had 4 rooms - they were all fantastic. The adults had suites - large rooms, fireplace which was lit in the evening, fantastic hot water, coffee machine etc. Upon arrival, we did the two hour hike and then enjoyed a leisurely evening in the lounge. The horseback ride the next...

Short story: more like a hostel than hotel, but great food, fun activities, and a great location. Long story: we began to doubt that we were headed in the right direction after the road went from pavement in Machachi, to cobblestones higher up, and finally to mud and dirt. Remote is one way to describe it- rural another. But as...

We recently booked 2 nights at the Hacienda Porvenir with our teenagers booked into the Machai Rooms. When we arrived at the property we were shown the Machai rooms and were surprised to find that the rooms weren't rooms at all. The space is a long hallway divided by straw mat walls with curtains for doors. You can see into...

It was a rather bumpy ride to the hacienda, but well worth the trek! The accommodations and service were fantastic - beautiful lounge with a fireplace for reading or having an after dinner drink. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. We did the horse ride, which was really fun. They provide chaps and ponchos so we were comfy and dry...

My wife and I stayed here for one night in October. This place is historic, beautiful, and fun. We had a great 2 hour self guided hike on the property. The area is beautiful and reminiscent of the american west 50 years ago. We had a beautiful room upstairs which was very cozy and inviting. The property oozes history. We...

Hacienda El Porvenir is a good spot to relax while enjoying Cotopaxi. It's not the easiest place to get to but the seclusion is nice. The night sky is clear. The volcano is close by. The staff are helpful and arrange any tours you need and requests you have, and the food is good and reasonably priced. Hot water showers....

In our two weeks in Ecuador we stayed here for one night but wished it had been for many more nights. Beautiful location, rooms with character and lovely furniture and a great, reasonably priced, restaurant. Most of all lovely staff who made our stay so enjoyable. Walked in the mountains nearby and then headed to Cotopaxi. Wonderful.

We only stayed the night, arriving after dark and heading back out just after breakfast, but Porvenir was certainly a promising spot if we had had longer to enjoy it. The dynamic and impressively fit manager is a fabulous character; the welcome drink & snack were the most interesting (delicious!) we had on our trip; and the rooms and common...

Neither my wife, nor I, are what you'd call experienced horse riders. We thought looking at the volcanoes from the Andean highlands on a horse would be fun though, so we booked an excursion from here. To be clear, we did not stay here overnight (though I wish we had) - this was a day trip for us from Quito....
