Everything is within walking distance and yet when you close the gate on the rest of the city and turn to look at the beautiful garden you forget you are still in the middle of Quito. The apartment was beautifully decorated and arranged and had everything we needed. A real gem. We were sorry to leave.
This is a wonderful, idyllic pension and is a must stay. It is centrally located minutes from the old city, and is an oasis is a very busy city. The staff are fantastic and hugely helpful with every detail. You will not be disappointed.
A group of us rented all but one of the units at Wantara for a recent work trip to Quito. It was perfect in every way. The spaces are beautiful. The cleaning staff keeps the units very clean. And, if you want to go on a unforgettable journey to any of the areas surrounding Quito, I highly recommend using one of the two tour guides/drivers associated with this property, Thomas and Marcelo. Our group became quite attached to them and they took small groups to different sites throughout the week (Otavalo, the cloud forest near Mindo, and to Cotopaxi and the surrounding area).
This is a very special place...one we will never forget.
Just spent 5 wonderful days in Lagarto and it will go down as one of our best stays anywhere. We rent lots of apts and have never stayed in one so well equipped and perfectly comfortable. Lagarto is really more like a small house than a suite. It's quite large and roomy -- perfect for two people. The grounds are just lovely with all kinds of local statutes, pots etc scattered around the beautiful gardens. We looked forward to returning to Wantara Suites and escaping the noise and chaos of Quito. The doors opened to Wantara and it was like entering into a haven. The wood burning stove was perfect for warming us up on the chilly evenings and nights.
All communication prior to arrival with Wolfgang was easy and responsive and Andi and him are every bit as helpful in person. They are also interesting to talk with. Marcelo is a gem and great to hire as a driver if you want to do any trips,outside downtown Quito.
We saw a couple other units which were all very nice, but thought Lagarto was the nicest. As you can read, we can't say enough good comments about staying in Lagarto.
