We booked this hotel via Expedia and expected a charming and classy Cabaña with a special atmosphere after having seen the pictures. Unfortunately the hotel didn’t meet our expectations. Children programs and activities on the lake are only offered during the week-end. So we could have only played minigolf for which we would have had to pay 5 USD per... More

This was the 1st hotel we stopped at once we left Quito. It sits on the shore of San Pablo Lake. On our drive down, our guide asked us if we wanted a fire in the fireplace. We laughed at first because we had left Quito earlier in the day, but soon realized that it was much cooler there. Not... More

The hotel has beautiful surroundings. The lake itself is magical and the touch of the fireplace on as we returned after dinner to our room was perfect!

All the things you would want from a hotel experience were found at Cabañas del Lago. First of all, everything is clean--the rooms, the restaurant, the public bathrooms. Secondly, the customer service is unlike any found in Ecuador. You can tell that the staff care about each visitor and the quality of the experience they are providing you. The restaurant... More

An oasis. Very nice hotel, easy to get to by taxi or bus. Right on the lake and near both Otavalo and Cotacachi indigenous markets. Great food and fun staff make the trip here worth the effort. A quiet retreat.
