Two nights and days in that cozy, comfortable and beautiful place with an amazing view and energy. The fact that the owner and his family recieve the visitors, gives it a very special and personal touch. With wonderful landscapes and the Otavalo market very near, it is an option to relax and to feel in home, without being. It's a... More

The staff was genuinely interested in our trip and made it a truly unique experience. They arranged two individual tours that were excellent. Transportation into to was also provided. The view is inquisitor and the common rooms very comfortable.

Whether going for a weekend, or a few hours, you are sure to have a unique, special experience. Hospitality is one of many strengths of Casa Mojanda, where meals are served family-style and a...

We were deeply touched by your review, Tanis, and we want to say thanks not only in our name but also in the name of all those who make Casa Mojanda possible, we mean, our devoted staff. We are all very sad about Mei Mei. No other guide could do it as she did. Hope to have you around here... More

In Feb. 2014 six of us Canadians spent a memorable four days at Casa Mojanda - a series of comfortable cabinas appropriately constructed to fit into a hillside setting with panoramic views, and having excellent relations with the neighbouring indigenous Minga (community). Casa Mojanda is an ideal spot from which to access the Otavalo valley and its many artisan villages.... More

Casa Mojanda provided me with my first South American experience and it was beautiful. You can't help but be amazed by the view and the location. The view from our window every morning was of the snow increasing or decreasing on a mountain peak across the valley. The grounds are beautiful and the buildings follow the natural slope of the...

If you like beautiful places, memorable dining experiences, exceptional conversations and good music playing quietly in the background this is a rare find because this is that kind of experience. Casa Mojanda offers great food. In Ecuador where the food is often mediocre this is a remarkable and rare find. We watched the staff harvesting blackberries from their extensive organic... More

All of the reviews we have read confirm the experience we had here. Diego, Umberto and the kitchen staff, not to mention Gustavo the wrangler, were first class. It was as much an experience as just a place to stay. The communal dinners might not be for everyone, but we found them to be a great way to interact with... More

Am so delighted that you enjoyed the Casa Mojanda "experience!" I totally agree that communal dining is a huge part of the fun, but we do offer the option of solo dining if for any reason and at any meal, guests prefer their own table. It always surprises me how very few of such requests we get, but we won't... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Casa Mojanda operates on the basis of a firm and ongoing commitment to the principles and practices of ecological tourism and contribution to the surrounding community. Casa Mojanda was designed to have a minimally intrusive impact on our local ecosystem and culture. We believe that ecotourism operations must at a minimum “do no harm,” and be sustainable socio-economically and environmentally, as well as harmonious with and actively supportive of indigenous traditions and cultures. When it comes to lodgings and resorts, we believe that small is beautiful. By keeping Casa Mojanda large in vision but small in scale, we are able to interact with our guests personally, and whenever there is interest, we will connect visitors with local schools, clinics and environmental projects. Each guest is a part of this ongoing process and your feedback and participation are most welcome. ... more   less
