The location is superb. Right by the lake of course. The rooms are very nice. We were 2 adults and 2 children. The beds were very comfortable. Very quiet sleeping. Frankly, our suite looked brand new. The fireplace is a very nice touch. The restaurant has a very rich local food spin to it. The service in the restaurant is...

It was a big disappointment to get to the place and learn that most of the kid's games the place had are know gone. Apparently the owner needed more space to build more rooms, so the small fútbol field, and game areas were destroyed. Too much greed!!

Dear guest: It is true that the soccer field has gone, but instead here we built the best marina in the ecuadorian Andes. In one hand the field was not used very often, and in the other hand we wanted to provide the chance to live a great experience thought the water sports. Great things demand sacrifices.

Cabanas del Lago is a "must go" hotel in Otavalo. By the lake, this well decorated hotel provides plenty of water sports, mini golf, and sight seeing tours. Staff is extremely kind and professional. After your meal, ask for the "crema de chocolate", simply the best!
