My family was absolutely blown away by Hacienda Cusin. When you step onto the property, you immediately feel transported into 16th century Ecuador (with all of the necessities of modern day, of course!). The decoration is superb -- turquoises, reds, and beautiful murals line the walls of the Hacienda. The property itself is spectacular-- there are stunning gardens and a...

Stayed for two nights in September. Restored but rustic rooms are charming. Excellent food. Llamas, horseback riding, ping pong table, movies and lots of fun things to do. Excellent service. Pretty exclusive clientele--we met the US and Canadian ambassadors who were having tea by a roaring fire in the common area! They were wonderful!!

I spent four nights at Cusin and was totally enthralled by its antique charm. The Hacienda has been painstakingly restored and is decorated with beautiful Andean textiles and artwork. The food is some of the best I sampled in six weeks of travelling through Ecuador and the gardens are a delight. There are plenty of activities to choose from but...

Thank you for SUCH an appreciative, helpful and understanding review of your stay with La Familia de Cusin. The Cusin complex takes time to digest and you certainly did so. If there was a tripadvisor hotel guest review for the staff to compose, they would have awarded you 5 stars. The owner, an art, Andean textiles and gardening aficionado, who...

Beautifully done gardens with wonderful common areas to spend time by the fire. Meals were fine, though definitely not the best we had in Ecuador. Friendly service on our quick overnight during a 3-day horse trek (with Ride Andes - see separate review for more on our awesome experience)!

Thank you for taking such time to write such an appreciative review. Horseback riding is one of the finest ways to explore such a remarkable countryside, particularly with Ride Andes.

I have just returned from a16-day stay at Hacienda Cusin and can't say enough in praise of the professionalism, kindness and generosity of the large staff. I have never experienced such excellent service, or such nice people. With typical Ecuadorian warmth and hospitality, every member of the staff, from gardener, housekeeper, and waiter to the office and reception desk staff,...

In June I traveled to Otavalo/Lago San Pablo and stayed in Hacienda Cusin and Las Palmeras Inn. Both properties were exceptional and I can highly recommend them. I originally found the properties in travel guides. However, in posting this review, I discovered that they are misclassified as B&B's when they are clearly hotels that serve delicious breakfasts, included in the...

They are unreliable. Offered us multiple options on horse hacks. Descriptiones send via email included gallop and atrot. We agreed on one of the rides and day before rides called to confirm timing. 4 hours before the ride they changed the hour and wrote that "our horses are only for walking, no gallop or trot available". We had to cancel...

Stayed for two nights in one of the garden cottages. This hacienda is such a beautiful property, it's worth a visit even if you're not staying overnight. The gardens and the monastery are inspiring. Breakfasts were not exceptional, and service by staff was not always consistently friendly...both could use some improvement for the price. Also, wifi only available in common...

Thank you for your appreciation of Hacienda Cusin, of its beauty and its gardens - so inspiring for La Familia de Cusin. I'm surprised that your complimentary, 4-course breakfast menu was unexceptional. And I am disappointed and apologize for the waiters who gave a sense of unfriendliness; to be discussed in our next manager's meeting. Similar to you, Cusin depends...
