Cons: no working tv, no working wifi, restaurant was out of both the food and the drink I tried to order, room was backed up to the parking lot where car alarms went off all night, mold in shower grout, and....

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

So enjoyed the overnight stay at Cabanas del Lago as part of a Gate 1 Tour! It was out of the way and that was part of the charm. The rooms were comfy and, as it got chilly at night, we each found a hot water bottle on the bed when we returned from dinner. Surprisingly, it cut the chill... More

It's probably all been said - but I'll agree they're providing a really nice experience here.
