This place reminded me of a lodge on the shores of Lake Como. It is spectacular. But of the 4 times I ate in the lakeside restaurant, I felt sick almost immediately afterwards. I'm not sure if the kitchen's not sanitary or my system hadn't adjusted to Ecuadorian cooking. But my friend also felt sick, so beware. We decided to... More

Love, love loved this retreat on the water! I was here only one night with a Gate1 Classic Tour to Ecuador and it was just so delightful!! It is on a lake, I believe, and the view is breathtaking - many of us just stood by the gate that separated us from the water and just stared for an hour.... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of Gate 1 tour. This hotel has amazingly beautiful grounds. The restaurant is great as well as the service. I was given a smaller room with a fireplace. Which was adequate to spend 1 night but would have liked to stay in the bigger rooms. They turn on the fireplace for you at... More

Starting our trip down from Quito, Our Gate 1 tour guide was somewhat secretive about where we were going to to stay for our first night outside the capital, and I sure it was to let us be surprised. When we arrived we could not believe our senses, form the sights to aromas, from the pleasant temperature felt through our... More

Loved these cabins. Our room had comfortable beds, large windows to take in the beautiful view, a fireplace with wood provided, and a nice couch to take in the view. Food in the restaurant was very good, though probably pricey by local standards (I think it was $10-11 for chicken fajitas, which I chose because it was cheaper than a... More

We have now taken three tours with Gate 1 the most recent to Ecuador. The accommodations that somehow Gate 1 locates are outstanding. Cabanas del Lago is situated so close to the lake that you are literally sitting right on the water enjoying your dinner or breakfast. Upon returning to your cabana in the evening you will find the fire... More

Kind of away from the hustle and bustle so if that doesn't bother you then you should enjoy your stay. Wonderful lake front scenery and cozy rooms with fireplaces will keep you comfortable when the evening chill sets in.
