Reviewed 4 May 2014

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.

Located on the shore of Lake San Pablo overlooking Imbabura volcano, the site is perfect. Because you are high in the Andes, the nights can get very cold, but you need not worry, while you are enjoying your wonderful dinner, the staff will be starting a fire in your cabin and it is nice and warm when you return. Also hot water bottles will be in your sheets to heat you bed. The site is fill with beautiful flowers and great views of the lake and the volcano across the water. Rooms are all Well appointed rustic cabins and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I think you will really enjoy this place.

Room Tip: All cabins are first class and appear to be equal.

Dear guest: how happy make us your words, that's exactly what we pursue...make everything for you enjoy your time here. The chimney and the hot bottles are very successful among our guest...and we enjoy them too. The nights in San Pablo -as you say- are cold, but they can be wonderful. Thank you very much for your comment. Hope have you here again.

I was with a tour group staying at Cabanas del Lago. If I wasn't, I'm not sure how we would be able to find this nice stay. It is located a pretty good distance away from the main road with several turns on small un-signed Ecuador "roads." But once found it was a pretty nice lakefront property. It is almost like a bed-n-breakfast kind of place. Most of the rooms were built like cabins, large and comfortable. Independent travelers would have a hard time finding this "resort" and would probably find the rate expensive.

Dear guest: we are very pleased that we had the opportunity to have you in our hotel. How nice you enjoyed the landscape...the lake enchants to everyone whom see it.
although we have several sings in the road, probably we will need more of them. Thanks for your observation. Hope you have here again.

We stayed just one night while on a Gate 1 tour and were completely charmed by this lodge except for one thing. If you happen to have a late-night neighbor who makes any noise at all (even watching the TV at a reasonable volume), you will be awake until your neighbor goes to sleep him/herself. Other than that, we did not want to leave and no one in our group did. The location is beautiful, the staff dashes at top speed to help you, the grounds have all sorts of fascinating things and are beautifully landscaped and the roaring fire in the evening together with the hot water bottles would have made for a wonderful night's sleep had our neighbor been quieter.

By now, I don't remember whether this was one of the places where we did have internet access in our room. I gave up on reliable access outside of Quito after a few nights, but since this was a vacation, I didn't honestly care. I was too busy enjoying being there.

Room Tip: Choose your neighbor wisely.

Stayed one night on a Gate One travel our excursion. Food was great was a cold night. If you ask them they will go start a raoring fire in your cabin while you are at dinner and it is very nice. Also hot water bottles in your sheets are great to settle in after the day. Beautiful flowers and views of the lake and city across the water. Staff very nice and proud of their place. Luggage went to the room as fast as you wished to walk their with it. Drinks and WIFI in lobby. A family of 5 or 6 could have stayed in our cabin. The remodeling effort was still visible on the end they are working on and the transformation appears to have been phenomenal.

Room Tip: Tell them to light your fireplace when you go to dinner. When you get back it is delightful. Eat a...

This is not your typical hotel, it's more like a very unique townhouse, lakefront with fireplaces. Everything about it was great: the staff, the views, the suites, the atmosphere, great music, very comfortable beds and excellent food. We were only there one night and were very sad to leave. There is only one thing, the walls are very thin.

Thanks for your comment, it's very valuable for us. We are very satisfied you enjoy your time here. Our scenary helps to feel peace and our secret ingredient of our cuisine is passion. Sorry for the walls...the totora is a decorative element that also brings such kind of sound isolation...but maybe it not enough.

I stayed at this hotel for one night while on a tour, but everyone on our tour wished we could have stayed longer.. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised by this unique hotel, its beautiful setting and the friendliness of its employees.

Our cabin was clean and comfortable with two large beds (a queen and a double,) a working fireplace and a large couch under a picture window overlooking the lake. The bath was modern and had plenty of hot water. .Since it was a chilly night, the staff lit the fireplace and placed hot water bottles in our bed.

The hotel offers free wifi which we were unable to get in our cabin, but could access in the main lounge.

The restaurant which overlooks the lake served the best meal I had during my 8 nights in Ecuador.
