Spent a few nights here, and didn't want to leave. The place is an old early 16th century farm with a monastery attached. It has been painstakingly restored over the last 25-30 years by the adventurous Brit who bought it, and in fact, restoration is still ongoing. You have the main building, which also houses the bar, restaurant and a... More

My friend and I stayed at Hacienda Cusin for two nights recently and we had a great stay there. The Hacienda and all of it's various buildings and the grounds are beautiful and a lot of fun to explore. It was also very convenient to drive to Otavalo and other surrounding towns so it was a good starting location. The... More

Step into the courtyard of Hacienda Cusin and take a stroll along any of the cobbled paths and you’ll be delighted by mystical surprises. Perhaps you’ll find yourself at room #10, with a beautiful garden island just outside the door, or walk down the shaded allée. Sit on a bench, greet the llama, relax—you’ve entered a bit of a fairy... More

Stepping through the very beautiful gate doors into the magical world of Hacienca Cusin is akin to what entering heaven must be like. Here, the sensual magic of darting, shimmering hummingbirds, jasmine fragrance enchanting, llamas contentedly dotting the lawn, wood fires in every casita, fountains tinkling, the many flower-filled gardens, including the edible, and the charming historical architecture left me...

We spent 2 nights at the Hacienda Cusin before our trip to the Galapagos on the advice of our travel agent (Audley). We stayed in the little cottage in the grounds (10) which was wonderful, like staying in a Botanic garden! I wandered around the gardens marvelling in the flowers, humming birds darted around and it was just magic! The... More

Everyone I had contact with the two weeks I spent here was warm, helpful, courteous and proud of their glorious spot in this world. The Hacienda has so many different magical spots to savor. There is always a new place to find and treasure. The food was consistently fresh and well prepared...the gardens and trees are magnificent...and the views are... More

We spent one night at the Hacienda Cusin as part of a Gate1 tour of Ecuador in March 2015. This was not the original hotel in which we were to stay, but we were very happy at the change. While not on the lake, the setting is spectacular and the historic buildings are truly memorable. The Hacienda dates back to... More

This was an amazing place to stay. Unfortunately we checked in late at night and left early in the morning and did not have time to fully appreciate the architecture or the grounds. When we arrived the fire was lit, there was a warm water bottle in the bed to warm the sheets and the cottage we slept in was... More

Such a unique property. The grounds are perfectly maintained. The rooms and common areas are filled with antiques and religious items. Just beautiful! The food and service are top shelf. It was our second visit and every bit as special as our first.

We stayed here overnight as part of a Gate 1 Travel tour. I was very impressed by the relaxed atmosphere of the entire place and the many gardens throughout. The entrance to a couple of bedrooms, including ours, led into a large and nicely furnished sitting area. Our room was very comfortable and clean, with many neat furnishings, including several...
