Parts of this property date from the 18th Century and are beautifully restored. Other parts are new construction in the style of the original. The staff is friendly, unobtrusive and helpful. We stayed in an atmospheric detached "Hobbit House" at the far end of the garden heated by a wood stove and electric heater. The dining room is a great... More

This historic, peaceful hacienda can be found on the outskirts of San Pablo del Lago village. It is NOT in Otovalo. However taxis to and from Otovalo take about 15 minutes and typically cost about $5 or $6 and are very easy to get. The accommodation, common areas and grounds are wonderful. Rooms are spacious and have log fires. WiFi... More

Many thanks for spend g valuable time to write such an appreciative and informative review. Wi-fi, which hardly existed in the Ecuadorian countryside 3 years ago, is upgraded whenever new equipment can be found. As transmission improves, more rooms have wi-fi . However, wi-fi in guest rooms tends to isolate guests, whereas wi-fi in the gardens and public rooms, guests... More

I recently returned from - I think - my 6th visit to Cusin and felt as though I was coming home after 8 years away. Unbelievably, I was greeted with hugs by the same staff that I met in 1992 when I went for the first time; I was told that 70% of that staff is original, which certainly says... More

Hacienda Cusin is the best accommodation in the northern province Imbabura. The wide offer of leisure activities (from wellness to adventure rides) and its central location near the main tourist attractions makes this place a perfect match to either a long weekend or a 2 months stay. Myself (Ecuadorian) and my guests from Europe were overwhelmed by the colonial value... More

Hacienda Cusin is peaceful, with beautiful gardens and tons of history. The dining room and main house are gorgeous and in great shape, but other parts (including our room and the game room) were somewhat worn around the edges. Wifi was terrible. However, we didn't go to Ecuador to play ping pong or read emails, and the lovely setting more... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review and for including appreciation of Cusin's staff, history and decor. Countryside Wifi can sometimes be slow and Ecuador and Cusin are constantly making internet improvements. Yes, an old, large and often busy property such as Cusin can appear worn. Cusin spends much of August and September annually upgrading bathrooms and guest... More

If you are looking for some peace and quiet go here. We spent a few days here just lounging around in the gardens and horse riding. To get to Otavalo the staff will call a taxi which costs around $5 for 15 minutes. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are pretty nice. There is also a monastery nearby and... More

Thank you for your appreciative and informative review and important suggestion for guests to explore the Monasterio. I'm sorry that you felt the cold and wonder if you informed Reception of such - every room has an electric heater and the vast majority of rooms have log-fires. More

Beautiful hotel with lots of history. The owner gave us a bit his story with the hotel while the guest enjoyed hot tea service. The grounds were beautiful. Each room was slightly different from each other. My family had 4 rooms, and each room had a lovely fireplace and we did use it. The kids thought it was awesome to... More
