Land of the Sun Hotel & Spa
Ranked #3 of 11 Cotacachi B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 April 2014

right in the heart of cotacachi, close to all the shops and restaurant especially leather street. the rooms were vert big with a king size bed which was very comfortable and a good bathroom with hot water that took 3 or 4 minutes to get hot but when it did it was a great shower with lots of pressure, it was great, the breakfast was excellent and eduardo was a great help and all the staff was friendly. the place was so good we stayed there again three days later

Room Tip: rooms on the second floor facing the court yard were great and quiet

My wife and I stayed for several days while we explored Cotacachi. Highlights - one of the best included breakfasts we have had during our Ecuador travels; great central location; helpful bilingual front desk staff, Franklin was particularly helpful; strong & consistent WiFi; inexpensive same day laundry service; fresh flowers in the room was a nice touch. Downsides: Creaky wooden floors and thin walls. But for this I would have rated our stay as a 5 and in spite of this we will stay here again on our next visit.

This is a really nice place, run by extremely pleasant people. The room we had, a corner one overlooking the street, was spacious and comfortable. The courtyard, where we ate our very good meals, was delightful. We used the extremely efficient and excellent value laundry service. Overall a good stay in this lovely town.

The staff of Land of the Sun Inn could not be better! They constantly strive to please their customers to the fullest extent. The manager is extremely courteous and helpful, the cooks and servers are polite and try hard to make your meal enjoyable. And, the food is well prepared and excellent! We could not have been more pleased with every phase of the operations at Land of the Sun Inn!

Firstly, we did not own this hotel at the time of the review but we feel that the guest must have mistaken the review of a '1' instead of a '5' for the best review he could have given.
Confirmation of this appraisal is evident after reading the glowing review.
We thank our guest for his review and his opinions were duly noted.....which by the way were very complimentary.

Thank you for your kind works.

Yes the floors squeak and yes there is some street noise but what a great little oasis. We stayed in room 105 which was very large with a comfortable king sized bed, closet, good lighting for reading etc. all staff have been excellent. We would come back in a heartbeat.

We have been traveling exploring Ecuador.. came to Cotacachi.. a small prosperous town.. The Land of the Sun hotel is located on the main town square, beautiful architecture, lovely inside.. an old beautiful building with a traditional inner court yard, tables with sun umbrellas.. lots of flowers.. very pleasant.. staff are very courteous and attentive, food is very nice... bathrooms a bit basic but for Ecuador small town.. it works...we have really enjoyed staying here.. relaxed atmosphere... very affordable.. In Cotacachi, this Definitely the place to stay. This would definitely be my choice in Cotacachi if i visit again.

Basic rooms at The Inn Land of Sun are greatly compensated by excellent staff. Prices are average range.

Breakfast comes with the room and kitchen is open for lunch and dinner too. Staff is extremely accommodating and the Inn offers laundry service and an on site masseuse.

The Inn is an old mansion that belonged to the local governor back in the day. All profits go to help local indigenous peoples.

Room Tip: Ask for room room 104 which had double balconies and siting area.
