I stayed here one night and wish it was longer! The rooms are really little cabins that have a working fireplace. As other reviews have mentioned, the hotel staff will light your fire for you as you eat dinner so you return to a warm and cozy room. The view is amazing as well. Out our front window we had...

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. We were on a Gate 1 tour and arrived shortly before dark - so there wasn't much time to enjoy the grounds but what we did see was great. The cabins were very nice and the fireplace was a real treat. Hot water bottles... More

This beautiful resort on a lake (papa's tears) is an experience not to be missed. The rooms are individual cabanas with a fireplace in each one.

As part of my Gate 1 tour package, this was our second stop and wish we stayed longer. After spending a day sightseeing Quito in the morning and then driving over mountains, we arrived in the late afternoon.
