We stayed one night as part of a four day trip arranged through Columbus Travel. The food was excellent and the respite of the log fire and water bottle was a treat. LasPalmeras was a spot on stop along the way of our tour of the central highlands. I highly recommend the Inn and Columbus travel.

We had a great 2 night stay over a Fri/Sat night. They are one of the few places that allows dogs, and they have a couple dogs onsite. 4 month old Homero is a golden retriever pup that quickly made friends with us, most likely because we gave him treats! We had a great stay. STAFF: Awesome!! Very professional and... More

We wound up at Las Palmeras by accident, and it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The rooms are large and very comfortable, each having comfortable beds, a desk and a kiva fireplace, which can be lit each night. The owner, manager, Cesar, was caring and warm, making sure that all of his guests are comfortable. The only complaint... More

We have visited Las Palmeras for years...always finding small upgrades, simple yet important attention to details - and genuinely friendly staff. The new feature this year is expanded WIFI service thru the grounds. Tho Ecuador has been remarkably dry this summer, the grounds were in beautiful condition. I think this is one of the prettiest places - and only a... More

We stayed her on our recent trip to Eciador. The location is smack in the middle of the volcanos and surrounded by gardens making for lovely surroundings! And the individual casitas had a nice sized bedroom and living area with a cozy fireplace that they light while you are at dinner so you return to a cozy eculaptus smelling fire.... More

Loved the location of Las Palmeras, it was so convenient to the town center of Otavalo. We walked down the hill to the Sat. market and that was great. We ate most of our meals here and met other people traveling Ecuador. I love that they start the fire in your room and bring you hot water bottles for your... More

Nice rooms, nice restaurant, nice people. Ther is no heat but you can mke your own fire in your room wich is really nice. The park of the hotel has a great flora. The only problem is the location, a little far from the center. But evrything else is good

What a little haven this place is! Located just above the city it is a quiet retreat that has you feeling like you stepped back in time. The cabins are cozy and quaint, the staff friendly and helpful, the grounds are blooming with beautiful Andean flowers and the breakfasts are simple yet tasty. I highly recommend this place for a...

Being a former guinea pig farm (Ecuadorians still like to eat guinea pigs) the hotel still has kept its rural and simple ambience. It is located far away from the city. They offer dinner (delicious menu - no guinea pig) and breakfast. As the region is quite cold, rooms include a fireplace which will be fired during the evening by... More
