I walked by La Casa del Abuelo on my last night in Banos, within 200 yards of the Virgin Mary waterfalls and was captured by the elegance of the grounds and the outdoor restaurant. The fixed menu was the best meal I had in my 6 weeks in Ecuador; very elegant and meticulously prepared. I chatted with the owners (Andres and Daniela) for a pleasant hour over dinner and wine and had a look at the hotel and rooms. I wasn't able to spend the night, but how I wish I had found this place earlier! Six lovely rooms in a traditional but renovated Ecuadoran family house and a hell of a deal! Thirty dollars for room, breakfast AND dinner. I'm sure it's a limited offer as they get off the ground, but make sure you take advantage of it while you can!
