A cabana style resort with an off the beaten path style and flavor. It is a small area with a small shop and restaurant. The food and drinks are good. The cabins are clean and comfortable with water provided. The staff were gracious to all requests and went out of their way to please. The gounds are well maintained and it was relaxing to just sit out, listen to the waterfall and view the lake. There are water sports equipment for rent, a party boat, and a swimming area. The only problem I would see is finding it the first time!

Room Tip: There is a waterfall (manmade) next to one of the rooms if you enjoy the soud of water.

This is a wonderful little hotel tucked away in the valley outside of the town. Rooms were small, cottage style with small bathroom, fireplace, bottled water, etc. The hotel grounds have beautiful gardens. There were 2 little shops on the way from the room to the restaurant which had good local things like scarves, sweater, gloves & crafts, very reasonably priced. The views from the Restaurant facing the lake are beautiful and breathtaking. Food was good both breakfast & dinner; staff was very attentive and efficient. When we came back to our room after dinner the room was quite warm, the staff had started the fireplace which was a great touch, it was very romantic.

Room Tip: Everything is good. Carry warm clothes as it can get quite cold especially in the evening & mornings

As we traveled towards this hotel, the roads were barely paved, and the houses were typically poor.
As we turned the corner, we came upon an Oasis - Cabanas del Lago.
i. A beautiful location.
ii. Rooms were large
iii. Water was provided
iv. Dinner and Breakfast were very good -- Large Variety
v. The hotel was excellent, especially when you consider the surrounding area.
We were on a Gate One Tour of Ecuador and this was an excellent choice.

Dear guest: we are pleased you consider us an oasis. That is the idea. That our guests forget everything for a while and enjoy the landscape, our cuisine and our hospitality. Thanks for your comments. And we would like to tell you that with our business we also want to be a development factor to the area. Indeed our staff is originally from this area. Hope have you here again :)

We stayed at the Cabanas del Lago on a Gate 1 tour of Ecuador. The hotel is off the beaten path in a beautiful setting right on the lake. We enjoyed its relative remoteness, especially since we didn't have to worry about how to get to it. There are lakeside activities we would have enjoyed had we stayed there longer and the place would be nice for a quiet weekend or short visit. The cabins are comfortable but unheated, although the staff will light a fire in your fireplace upon request. Our included meal was fine, a good thing since there are no restaurants nearby. The grounds were very pretty and well maintained and the staff was friendly. My only problem was that I got a severe attack of diarrhea while there. I ordered a Coke with lots of ice in the bar after being assured that the ice was made from purified water and this could have been the cause, or perhaps it was something I ate elsewhere or just plain bad luck. The staff prepared some sort of local remedy for me which seemed to help a little. We enjoyed the rustic feel of the place and the beautiful scenery and wish we could have spent a little longer there.

Room Tip: Ask the staff to start a fire in your fireplace if you tend to be cold as it gets chilly at night.

Dear guest: we're very sorry about your stomachal incident. Lets us tell you that, indeed we use purified water in the ice. We hope our "aguita de vieja" (the local remedy you talk about) has worked better. The good thing is that despite the stomachache seems that you enjoyed our place. It would be nice to have you here for more time and above all, in better conditions that let you enjoy plenty the hotel. Thanks for your comments.

We were only there for one night, but I'd love to come back some day and stay longer. The cabanas are very comfortable with everything you need. The staff started a fire for us while we were at dinner and the room was nice and warm when we got back. The hot water bottles tucked in our beds were highly appreciated, too. The view over the lake is breathtaking and the swimming area and water "toys" looked like a lot of fun. The dining room looks out onto the lake and made the enjoyable meals even more so. I loved the bunnies by the miniature golf course. There was a nice gift shop. Staff was very helpful and friendly and our waitress hugged us as we left from breakfast, wishing us a good trip. Altogether a fine stay!

Dear guest: thank you for your gentle comment. Your words motivate us. Here the nights are pretty cold, but we find the way to warm the rooms for our guests in order to make you feel at home. Nothing like a pleasant sleep. Hopefully you come back to enjoy more time of this peaceful landscape. You will be welcome.
