Beautiful and charming mid-priced hotel with amenities and ambience that seem more high-end. This is a great base from which to explore the beautiful Imbabura province and other parts of Ecuador. Conveniently located in the hills above Otavalo which is the location of one of the largest indigenous markets in South America. It was very easy to catch the bus... More

From the time we arrived--until the moment we left, no request was left unmet. The property is stunning. We rented a house for the week. Each night, the staff lit fires in each of our 3 fireplaces. Additionally, we were given hot water bottles for our beds. WOW- Las Palmeras Inn takes customer service to a whole new level. One... More

Beautiful haciënda with a lot of pro's: the garden with the lama's, the historical building, the nice restaurant...but there are also some downsides: it is a very, very long walk to the center of Otavalo (to be honest: you need a car), and the rooms are quite basic and dark (altough very clean). And if you don't like to be... More

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the garden with the lama's, the historical building, the restaurant but there is no need for a car; local buses (10c per person) leave regularly for Otavalo and elsewhere and Reception can call a cab ($5). Many guests enjoy the downhill walk in particular. Guest room information states that log-fires (and hot-water bottles) are... More

I spent a month there this spring and had a great time. The location is gorgeous and the staff and so friendly and helpful. Save some time in your Ecuador trip to visit here! I've stayed in many of the cabins over the years and am never disappointed.

During the winter 2014, I spent two weeks at Las Palmeras. In the winter 2015, I rented a house on the premises of the hotel and spent three months and a half there.

Definitely not worth the trek nor taxi ride up the mountain, decent staff, horribly over priced "gringo pricing" is in full effect! Nice dogs, really friendly! Just your tipical , over pricing. Not terrible, just not a value.

This unique review which lacks any specifics, or reference of any kind, e.g. names of staff, or dogs, guest room number/type, meal content or guest room prices, extensive gardens, etc., required considerable research. A very frequent bus ride from Otavalo to Las Palmeras Inn costs approximately 10 cents and a taxi ride for 3 people, approx. $5. Because of the... More

This hacienda is on a pretty piece of land in a somewhat isolated area. Definitely good to have a car. The rooms are spacious and basic with a little sitting room with a fireplace and a small bedroom. Like most places in Ecuador, there's no heat. While at dinner, they light a small fire in the fireplace (very cozy) and... More
