I had a wonderful experience staying at Hosteria San Jorge.  The atmosphere and grounds are beautiful.  Everyone tried very hard to please and accommodate their guests.  You are not staying at the Hilton, but you are staying at the extension of the propriators home.  I would recommend Hosteria San Jorge for a unique experience.

Great time at the “San Jorge” Hosteria.  The Ecuadorian dinner on our first night was the best, and so was the folklore dance.  I loved the hospitality and the kindness from all the staff and thank you Jorge, Jr. for your great spirit!

San Jorge in Quito was wonderful, we loved the rooms, the pool, the sauna, the hot tub, the horseback riding and the personal service. The hiking was lovely. Everything about our stay here was perfect

We will recommend this place.

The perfect place to get away from Quito. An excellent accompaniment to our tour to Galapagos. I can not think of a way to improve . We loved everything Muchísimas gracias !

Everything was great. We liked this place as a nice transition from our trip to Galápagos. Food and service was great.

Horseback riding was great

Market yourselves to people visiting Galápagos and returning thru Quito to the US. This is a wonderful change from the city of Quito. !

I have traveled extensively throughout the world and have never experienced the customized and personal treatment given to me while at San Jorge. Once I exited customs, I did not have to worry about anything until I was on my flight home.

The Galapagos cruise is also a must-do. I cannot possibly describe the untouched beauty or biodiversity you get to experience on this trip.

If you are considering going to San Jorge, book your trip. You won’t regret it.

We took the San Jorge medicinal plant tour, the birding tour. My husband went horseback riding and the other family members took a long walk to the plateau. All of us (we were 17 ! ) enjoyed our time at San Jorge.

The children were very interested in the medicinal plants and all of us enjoyed the beautiful birds.

The were excellent and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was excellent and the rooms were very comfortable. We really enjoy the folk dancing all evening after dinner. You can certainly quote me!!

Just continue to preserve the land and return it to its natural state . You are doing very important work!!

We enjoyed the shamanic medicine plant tour, hiking the preinca trail and birding tours.
Food and tours were excellent. The rooms ,although lightly heated ,were comfortable.
We were so glad Natural Habitat offered this as an option on our Galápagos Adventure.

A very peaceful and tranquil spot at San Jorge/Quito. The room was pleasant and we enjoyed the views. The bed was extremely comfortable. All the staff were friendly and helpful. A relaxing therapeutic stay with a good variety of food. We hiked on our own to the San Jorge waterfalls in the morning and strolled through the grounds watching birds in the afternoon.

We visited San Jorge de Quito, Tandayapa and Milpe.
The transportation, lodging, restaurant, and hotel services were all very good.
San Jorge in Quito : enjoyed the rustic charm, art and antiques. The grounds and hummingbirds were beautiful. Vicente was the man.
San Jorge de Milpe : Impressive views, waterfalls, some insects, otherwise this will be a paradise.
San Jorge de Tandayapa: the hilltop picnic area was the perfect resting spot after hiking. The trails were full of wildlife.
We experienced hiking with some birdwatching, orchid viewing and general wildlife observation and photography . George, the guide, transportation and tourism services were excellent! Our week at San Jorge was very enjoyable and very unique experience for us. We were very impressed with the beauty of Ecuador and the friendliness of the people of Ecuador. We cherish our new friendships with the San Jorge team. I first became aware of San Jorge while on amazon adventures .com

 We enjoyed San Jorge de Tandayapa Hummingbirds Reserve and San Jorge de Milpe waterfalls adventure.
Of course our hikes were very informative because George took us. We appreciated the hikes being at the appropriate physical level for us. We are not birdwatchers but enjoyed seeing the birds, specially in our lunch stop in the wonderful San Jorge deTtandayapa Hummingbird Reserve. We really loved our room in San Jorge Ecolodge Quito, near the office. USA sales ( Cheryl) were good. Cheryl was very helpful, very personal services, first by Cheryl, then by George and others at San Jorge Ecolodge. Transport was fine. Meals were mostly good.
