I am 8 years old. My parents have taken me to over 30 countries. By my estimation, I have stayed in six trillion hotels. People, listen up: Hacienda Cusin is the Real Deal. Hacienda Cusin is my favorite place in Ecuador and the entire Southern Hemisphere. There is a monastery with a secret trap door and 5 gardens. They grow... More

Now don't get me wrong - we had a very pleasant 2-night stay here, and it is a very nice hotel. But our agent (and this site) had given us very high expectations, and they weren't really met. It is an old farmhouse with extensive outbuildings and a monastery next door, and all the buildings are pretty with whitewashed walls... More

Our time in Hacienda Cusin was so relaxing and pleasurable as we had hoped since we started planning our trip to Ecuador. The rooms, gardens are tastefully decorated keeping the old hacienda style, however all these beauties do not compare to the great experience we had the New Year's Eve with the program that the hacienda organized for us.

Close to the lake San Pablo and to the Otavalo centre, where you have a good fair of Ecuadorian handcraft works, the hacienda Cuzin offered me an unique chance of sampling good food , art works , artistic presentations combined with very good instalations , rooms, impressive dining halls and the dedication of employees of which I must appoint Pablo...

Your very appreciative and understanding review was so good to have. Thank you for taking such time to compose it. Pablo is a cornerstone of Cusin's ambience, utterly thrilled to see his name. Thank you making Pablo's week. Yes, to present such a complex New Year entertainment, in a remote Andean setting, is indeed, expensive to arrange. I am so... More

Nestled in the beautiful surroundings of volcanic mountains in San Pablo Del Lago, near Otavalo, Hacienda Cusin was the beautiful hotel where we spent five glorious days to end our two week stay in Ecuador. The hotel, set in an idyllic landscape, has beautiful grounds and many spaces where we would recharge our stressed New York city based souls. As... More

Seven of us had a fabulous lunch, afternoon, and then amazing New Year's celebration and dinner. The grounds, scenery, food, wine, and service were all top notch. It is clear that the management and staff are in the details to ensure a guest's experience is indeed a great one. We came as my mother had been here 3 or 4... More

Four of us had a terrific lunch in the beautiful 1602 restored hacienda.We started with hearts of palm cerviche - perfect balance. It is served with fresh popcorn as we would serve croutons. Next was a fresh well composed salad. I chose the grilled fish, my son had the pork chop- both excellent. Finally , i had the berry good... More

I find it hard to write, because so many before have written great reviews. And you know what, they are right! Stunning gardens, amazing rooms and excellent service and staff. We had one night in the monastery and then two (and a half) nights in a cabin in the back of the hacienda. The common areas, like the library, or... More

We stayed two nights in Cusin and used it as a base for exploring the Saturday market in Otavalo, the leather artisans in Cotacachi, embroidery in Zuleta and a visit to Parque Condor, which I highly recommend. Cousin was beautiful - fantastic gardens complete with Llamas, wonderful architecture and a couple of really nice veggie gardens. The rooms are comfortable... More

Walking through the grounds you felt like you entered another world. This 1700's hacienda has been impeccably restored and wonderfully maintained . We stayed 3 nights in May 2010 and still recall it fondly. We had the garden cottage at the far rear of the garden providing the ultimate in privacy. We still laugh at the support beams being leveled... More
