This place was just amazing! It was so beautiful and the rooms were so cute. The rooms are modern with a rustic twist. I loved that they had fireplaces in the rooms and it was really nice treat to come back to your room after dinner and have the fire going with hot water bottles in your bed. It was... 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.

Your jaw will drop as you enter this magical place on the shores of San Pablo Lake. It was not easy to get to, especially as the main road was under construction, and there are some less-than-desirable looking buildings in the area. We applaud our tour company for finding this gem at the end of the road. The hotel's proximity... More

Not sure I can say any more than others had mentioned already. Very nice room, king size bed plus a single bed, large sitting area, fireplace, and heat water bottles in our bed.

Fireplace in our room and hot water bottles for the nippy night did much to soothe our spirits during a recent one night stay at this hotel. We stayed on a Saturday night-bad choice as there was so much loud music late into the night that made sleeping difficult. No internet or coffee/tea in the room were also draw backs.... More

I really loved this place and wish I had time to stay longer. Even though we arrived when it was starting to rain, and it had rained the previous day, the grounds were so beautiful that people immediately went exploring them, despite the rain fall. That says a lot about the place. The colors are really vivid and the scenery... More
