“Lovely place, with slight reservation”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We enjoyed our stay here overall. Couldn't fault the friendly welcome, rooms, grounds, food in the restaurant. Our only reservation was that the hotel seems to be catering mainly for groups. For example, the pool wasn't open until the group arrived, we ate dinner surrounded by a group (which happened to be of a religious nature and prayers were conducted around us during our main course!). Don't like to grumble when there were so many positives, but felt it needs saying.

My parents were visiting from the united states, and we wanted a clean, safe, beautiful place for them to stay. Chorlavi fit that description perfectly. Amidst a garden paradise of colonial, casual elegance, we were pampered by attentive staff, who gave my parents lots of personal attention and were very helpful with any special needs they had. Bring a sweater, the nights are chilly and as is the case with all of ecuador, there is no central heating. This is normal and not a complaint. The spa facilities were pristine and lovely, the restaurant was very nice and delicious, breakfast was very good. This is a special place, run by a family who obviously care about what they're doing.

Its rooms are clean and comfortable but since it is a ranch over 100 years old, it’s beautiful. Since it is so far away from the city, it is a really calm and silent place perfect to relax. People are really nice but the waiters and cooks are the nicest ones. This doesn’t mean their food tastes good, the variety of dishes we ordered tasted pretty bad. In conclusion, it’s a good place to stay and relax but it has hideous food.

I recently had a wonderful time at Hosteria Chorlavi! Last time I visit this charming destination was ten years ago, the changes they have made have improved the place in a very nice way. The beds and bathrooms are really comfy! The food and service is very good and the whole atmosphere is totally magic! Is a great place to go in any plan, relaxing, family or with friends!

Room Tip: I like the rooms at the main building

I haven't bben to this Hotel for staying for many years, but they change their infra-structure, abut most of all they change their service to the customer. This is very important, if you are staying in a place where althought is not a 5 start Hotel , you feel you are at a 5 start Hotel because of the serice they provide to You.
From the registratioln up to the final check out. service is almost perfect. Still they have to improve some of the aspects of their rooms, but basically, you feel very good.

Room Tip: Please ask for the rooms near the main patio if you want to be where the restaurant and bar is , but...

My wife and I recently had a wonderful visit to Hotel Chorlavi on our travels through Ecuadorian mountains. Chorlavi is a very intimate hacienda that is a good launching point for exploration around the Ibarra region.

The building itself is very rustic (the manager tells us that it was a Jesuit Monastery from the 1600's) with a large central building surrounding a courtyard that was a great congregation point for having a glass of wine...or in the evenings when the temperature get cold - a warm Canelazo. The walls are covered by an eclectic array of antiques that have obviously been collected over many decades and add character. There are some modern additions including a pool and jacuzzi which looked nice but we didn't get time to try.

Service was exceptional, from the moment we arrived the staff assisted with our travel plans and were constantly checking that we were satisfied. For example, one morning we were late awaking and they kept the kitchen open late because they knew we would want breakfast.

We highly recommend visiting Chorlavi.
