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,...

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.

This hotel is in a dream like setting with lush vegetation and a beautiful lake. There's animals to enjoy like rabbits and ducks on the lake too. Our room was lovely with a fire place.

We booked this hotel via Expedia and expected a charming and classy Cabaña with a special atmosphere after having seen the pictures. Unfortunately the hotel didn’t meet our expectations. Children programs and activities on the lake are only offered during the week-end. So we could have only played minigolf for which we would have had to pay 5 USD per...
