The hotel grounds are beautiful. The service is excellent and the cabanas are cozy! Food is great! We had the opportunity to share with local people and they showed us a lot from the culture in Ecuador. Highly recommended!

Cabanas del Lago is a "must go" hotel in Otavalo. By the lake, this well decorated hotel provides plenty of water sports, mini golf, and sight seeing tours. Staff is extremely kind and professional. After your meal, ask for the "crema de chocolate", simply the best!

The details in this place make it special! As soon as you walk in, you're welcomed by a beautiful garden and the best view of the lake ! The dining area is literally above the water. I left here wanting the experience of actually staying here overnight! Try the locro cabañas, and their empanadas de morocho.
