My wife and I spent 6 days at this magical mountain retreat. El Crater is beautifully nestled in the mountains providing views of the majestic crater of the Pululahua volcano as well as the vibrant city of Quito. The service is world class and the rooms are large and comfortable with floor to ceiling window views. The hotel is an architectural marvel. The hotel grounds house a wonderful collection of environmental sculptures. The rooms and restaurant are decorated with original works of art by local artists giving the hotel a uniquely Ecuadorian aesthetic.
The restaurant is beautiful with its amazing views and delicious cuisine. El Creater is truly a paradise. As one reviewer mentioned the fog can be thick at times. However, this only adds to the mountain charm as the fog is mysterious and romantic. Its moves quickly in and out of the valley and gives way to stunning views. You will have no shortage of prime picture taking opportunities!
El Crater provides all of the creature comforts and service reserved for 4 star hotels in this enchanted and awe inspiring country. We cannot recommend El Crater enough for a truly romantic get away or as a great home base while exploring the vibrant city of Quito and beyond.
We cannot wait to return. 5 stars for El Crater!
