A friend and I just spent 2 nights in this hotel, now called Hotel Land of the Sun, as well as Hotel "Tierra del Sol". It's centrally located in downtown Cotacachi, about a block from the town's central square. The hotel is quaint, with great stonework, murals, plants & flowers and old woodwork. Our room was inexpensive, and we had... More

Downsides: Creaky wooden... More

This is a really nice place, run by extremely pleasant people. The room we had, a corner one overlooking the street, was spacious and comfortable. The courtyard, where we ate our very good meals, was delightful. We used the extremely efficient and excellent value laundry service. Overall a good stay in this lovely town.

Yes the floors squeak and yes there is some street noise but what a great little oasis. We stayed in room 105 which was very large with a comfortable king sized bed, closet, good lighting for reading etc. all staff have been excellent. We would come back in a heartbeat.

This was our second time to stay at The Inn of Land and Sun. This time our visit was for 10 days and it fulfilled our needs. You will receive a discount if you are members of Gary Scott 's publications. So the cost is very affordable. The location is perfect for walking to Leather Street, market, La Mirage and... More
