We had lunch at La Estelita and enjoyed the wonderful view. There were five of us and everyone had some sort of seafood dish (shrimp, fish, soup) and all agreed that the food was delicious. Glad we went and can easily recommend.

I did not stay here, but instead, I enjoyed it's restaurant. I did not plan on coming up here, but a two hour hike up a dirt road (from the center of Ibarra) brought me up to this jewel. At the time of my arrival, I was the only guest in the restaurant. I enjoyed a delicious hot chocolate while... More

Besides the tremendous view there is nothing else to go here for. The rooms were large and roomy and the bed was comfortable. Tried the jacuzzi but the water pressure was so slow that the water was getting cold before it reached the jets so just took a bath. There was no hair blower in the room and in the... More

I had 4 excellent days at "La Estelita". The views and the restful atmosphere outstanding; the sincere cordiality of the owners remarkable, the prompt service deserves an A plus. (PS: I had some laundry done and since their laundry contractor did not charge them- they did not charge me a dime for this service). Even their friendly dog Max contributed... More

We decided to spend our last two nights in Ecuador at the Estelita, and while we found the views wonderful, generally we found the hotel to be unremarkable. The food was average and I must say we were quite disappointed. One thing to note is that you are pretty much "locked in " there once you get up the mountain... More

It is a perfect place to relax and just be in a very natural place, without noise of the city. Excellent choice if you want to be with your couple and spend time in a romantic place. Prices aren't very low,but service is very good. I won't recommend this place for families, because there's no many activities for kids, so... More

We stayed here with a volunteer group in November. Except for the long winding mountain road to get there , it is a beautiful quiet relaxing place. Spacious rooms, good restaurant, a specatcular view of the valley and city of Ibarra below make for a wonderful stay. Early morning walks up the winding room reveal views for the hardy walker!
