I very rarely take the time to write reviews, but Hacienda Cusin truly inspired me, compelled me to write one. It feels as if you are walking through another time, and the gardens are some of the most gorgeous I have ever seen - I felt like I was walking through a fantasia. This place has been lovingly preserved and... More

This is a lovely Hacienda first established in 1602. It has of course had a lot of work done to it since then.Both my friend and I had great garden view rooms with en suite and an open wood fireplace.The fireplace is set ready to use each evening with additional wood outside the door. On request a hot water bottle... More

Wow! What an unbelievable place... I felt like I stepped back in time into a movie. Gardens, hummingbirds, ponds, trees, a stable with animals, fireplaces, a monastery, I can go on! This place is a secret at every turn and kids will be enchanted. My 6 year old LOVED it and my husband and I did too, at night! Service... More

A couple friends and I stayed at the Hacienda this spring and absolutely loved it. The owner took time to show us around the grounds, gave us a tour of his incredible tapestry collection and even hosted us for lunch. He introduced himself to everyone that stayed there and made it a personal mission to ensure that everyone's stay was... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this historic hacienda made into a hotel. It is about a 10 minute taxi ride from downtown Otavalo ($2 ride). This hotel complex is simply gorgeous. The grounds are so lush with grass, trees, plants and flowers. My friend and I took many photos of this lovely complex. The dining room is lovely and very... More

Thank you for your appreciation, your advice and recommendation and for such complimentary words. Please send a selection of your photographs to hacienda@cusin.com.ec or to flickr.com. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your meals but please understand that maintenance of such a large complex with a well paid staff to ensure its quality, is relatively expensive. More

I stayed in the rooms on your left as you enter. I looked over the website will and with the different places they book, it was... More

Thank you for taking such time to write your extensive review and offer your point of view. Thank you also for website suggestions (the property/ grounds map will enlarge with a click). Guest rooms to the left of main entrance, from Sierra 11 to Suite Capuli (16). Of those rooms, Sierras 15 and 16 are larger and more expensive. I'm... More

When we first visited Cusin in 1997 we were immediately enchanted and have returned at least half a dozen times. After inspecting the majority of guest rooms, all very different, we settled upon romantic Garden Cottage 10 and Sierra 9 in the Main house. Each return visit we found refinements and improvements throughout the property complex, food and its presentation... More

Your detailed and appreciative review with such generous words, especially for Cusin's staff, is an inspiration for everyone at Hacienda Cusin. Your advice for activities and local venues is most helpful. Your frequent visits to Cusin is the highest form of appreciation that La Familia de Cusin could have. Thank you. Regresa pronto! More
