The views of the gardens, smelling the jazmine, or lavender is very relaxing. The warmth of the fire place made my cabin experience memorable...I wish we could neve stayed longer. The downside was that the food was terrible; not even a controlled portion of fish, as if they cleary were scrimping on the food. veggies consisted of limas (favs), corn... More

Dear guest: Thank you for your suggestions. In the past, we offered to the Gate 1 visitors an option of fresh vegetables, but with the time we realize in general they prefer the warm vegetables. We would appreciate your suggestions about some fresh vegetables options that would fit american's taste. The fish that was served at dinner was a trout.... More

I stayed one night while I was on a Gate1 tour. I wanted to stay for a week and so did my friend. The grounds were situated on the edge of a lake and were just beautiful. It is hard for me to choose what was the highlight of my stay. Wine by the lake while we watched the cormorants... More

We have lived in Ecuador for several years and always enjoy going up to Otavalo and to have lunch at the Cabañas del Lago. The place itself is lovely and relaxing. The gardens have improved much over the years. We had a late lunch yesterday and the food was very mediocre and the service poor. The servers just don't get... More

Dear guest: We are worried about your comments. Usually we don't receive this kind of complaints. In order to follow up this situation, we would like to know the day and the time you went to our restaurant. This could help us to know the staff that was in charge in that moment. Thank you. More

The grounds are beautiful. The staff, welcoming. The rooms, lovely. But the highlight was the lovely fire in our room when we returned from dinner. Only wish we could have stayed another day or two. Everything about this hotel was enchanting.

We were on a group tour and all shared the same complaint... Why can't we stay here longer? The grounds (and view) were beautiful. The service was excellent and the food was good. Each room has a fireplace which had been lit for us when we returned from dinner festivities.

I cannot compliment this place enough. It locates in the middle of nothing significant but this hotel is a resort in garden palace itself. We stayed in a cozy little bungalow with fire place.

This property is situated by a lake and has gorgeous landscaping. The rooms were quaint and cozy. The staff lights your fireplace while you are at dinner and puts hot water bottles in your bed so when you return for the evening, the bed and room are warm! The food and staff were excellent. Would come back anytime.
