We stayed here for a night with Gate 1. We loved our room, view, service- everything you expect from a hotel. WiFi is weak for some of the rooms as hotel is spread out. I will definitely recommend it!!

The hotel has big cabin style rooms with a fireplace. Falling asleep by the fire was very relaxing. I am not sure if there's much to do around the hotel as we were just stayed overnight with a tour, but the surroundings looked lovely. The hotel is right on the lake. Food was also good.

Cabañas del Lago is the best hotel/restaurant in the area and has been the top choice for decades. The place offers cabins, water sports and delicious food. The location is incredibly located right at the shore, all the buildings and gardens are beautiful, clean and well kept. The food is delicious with many typical Ecuadorean dishes but all made very...

Unfortunately our stay at Hosteria Cabañas del Lago went from bad to worse very quickly. We arrived to have lunch prior to checking in. The service: friendly, but completely disorganized and inept. Over the course of nearly an hour from the time we ordered, the items arrived randomly: a few drinks here, an entrée there, etc. To be honest, though,... More

We stopover at this Hosteria to navigate the lake, the place is great, but we didn't stayed there, we where on our way. The lake is amazing, nature is so beautiful in Ecuador I wanted to stayed there just enjoying the landscape. The boat ride was smooth, the view was amazing.

Excellent views in a guaranteed unique lakeside environment of nature and absolute quiet break, the restaurant is on the lake, the rooms are very comfortable independent cottages, the hotel is able to perform various activities such as jet skiing, kayaking, wake boarding , etc. Best of all is to sunset sail on a barge.
