It was a beautiful experience for our family. Kids had fun with the boats in the lake and the amenities from the hotel ... Food was excellent and the surroundings perfect in every meal. It is a place to come back from time to time

First of all, the place is gorgeous, and right on San Pablo Lake with it's stunning views. As an appetizer, their empanadas de verde were delicious. My main course was the Cordon Blue which came with an awesome potato thingy, while my husband had the T-bone. (But be careful how you order the steak, because rare is very rare).Their Aji... More

Pretty view of Lago San Pablo. Large restaurant with a bustling atmosphere. Good not great food, but good value. Great fresh squeezed juices. Service staff very helpful. Local dishes better than the American fare.

The hotel is very nice, the views are amazing, its perfect for older couples or people who just want to get away and rest. The rooms were cozy and comfortable but the bathrooms totally outdated and old. The restaurant area is very nice but the food is just average, it has a pool table and a foosball table. I went...

Steaks were great, and actually cooked medium rare when ordered that way. Desserts also excellent. Nice ambience, with views of Imbacocha.

Nice ambiance. Great view of lake and volcano. Wondering why this restaurant is #4 of best restaurants in otavalo. Food is overpriced and just ok. Was expecting better quality/taste for the price.

For this part of Ecuador Puerto-Lago is a bit pricey. However, I must say, it is worth every penny. My husband and I came here for lunch to celebrate a friends birthday. We spilt an appetizer of Empanadas. I ordered the Salmon in Brown Butter, topped with Shrimp. My husband ordered the BBQ Pork Rib (that was the biggest and... More

We picked this area to relax after climbing Mt Cotopaxi and to be near to the market of Otavalo. Our room slept 4 in three beds all in one room, which was a bit strange for a mixed sex group, but the setting more than made up for it. Overlooking a large lake with a volcano behind, it was lovely.... More

I chose this Resturant and the time of the reservation because I wanted the view, the sunset, and stars, we got all three! We were served some of the best sea food we've had. A very generous helping. The presentation was wonderful. We will be going again.

We chose this restaurant for our last dinner in Otavalo. It is out of town, so we had to take a taxi, which cost us $3.00. The restaurant sits on a lake with large windows overlooking it. We reserved a window table (highly recommended) and arrived right before sundown. The views of the clouds wafting over the mountains with reflections... More
