My husband I stayed here our first night in Ecuador. They were very helpful with arranging a pickup from the airport. The hostal is about a 30 minute walk from Otavalo or a $4 taxi ride. La Luna is situated in a gorgeous place with a great view of a volcano and lots of pretty flowers. The staff was very... More

La Luna is a very rustic inn in a beautiful location. It's outside of Otavalo and the location is gorgeous. The staff are friendly, and we appreciated the lovely fire that was set in the main building every evening. Breakfast was excellent (slightly different every day). We were in a room in a building down the path from the main... More

Stunning scenery and very comfortable rooms, especially in the seperate house on the hill. Absolutely loved staying here and was one of our Ecuador highlights. Staff were friendly and the restaurant served up good food. Little bit of a drive to get to town but great place to chill out for a reasonable price.

I just want to say that this place is an absolute gem. I was having a really hard time finding an inexpensive option for my stay in Otavalo, and then I stumbled upon La Luna. I was skeptical at first, especially reading the reviews about reservation problems. It did take a while to get someone on the phone as two... More

I can highly recommend La Luna to anyone traveling to Otavalo and it's neighboring attractions. I stayed in one of the rooms with a fireplace and loved it. Susie, Ivan and Fernando were terrific and attentive staff and the food was fresh and delicious. Tops!

Cosy, tranquil with a friendly atmosphere, sat in the countryside surrounded by the hills. We have enjoyed a couple of nice visit sat by the fire munching on some very nice pizza. It is a short (and cheap) taxi ride from the centre of Otavalo and its famous market. Well worth the stay.

We stayed here for two nights. You have to stay here. We absolutely loved it. We wish we had time to stay longer. Perfect place to chill out. The room: it was gorgeous. Really nicely decorated, loads of blankets and an electric heater (it gets cold). Comfy bed. I wish my room at home looked a bit like this. The... More

My husband and I lived in Ecuador for three years, and during that time, we must have stayed at La Luna at least 10 times. The hotel is lovely--set in the hills above chaotic Otavalo, while being close enough to town for visitors to easily enjoy the animal market and tourist market (45 minutes walking, 10 minutes in a taxi)....

Can't wait to go back!! Tamara and her family are wonderful! They can't do enough for you! The staff is very, very helpful and soooo nice. The property is beautiful, relaxing and very laid back. Breakfast every morning was very tasty. Ate dinner there a couple of nights, the food was wonderful, fire blazing and great company. I traveled alone... More
