This was by far the nicest hotel I stayed at on my visit to Ecuador. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. We especially enjoyed the fireplace and the shower (hot water with good water pressure; a rarity)! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The setting was gorgeous. It was rather a long ride into Otavalo, but it was nice...

Absolutely a wonderful hotel located in the perfect spot. It’s so serene and beautiful with its lake feet away from the hotel and close-by mountains. Rooms are log-cabin and have fire places and cozy seating. The garden, the mini golf and children’s play area are a plus.
