Our stay at La Posada del Quinde was absolutely perfect. Maggie, the owner and her amazing staff did everything within their power to make our stay delightful. They went overboard. The views of the volcanoes & the beautiful gardens are stunning. Not to mention the premier restaurant of Otavalo right in our own Hotel. What a great surprise that was!...

It was indeed a pleasure to be a guest of the hotel for three amazing days and we thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations, the staff, La Pachamama Restaurant, the Otavalo locale and its people. The natural...

How could any place be more relaxing than one where you can look out the picture window in your room and see hummingbirds flying, fliting and feeding. The terrace and large garden are beautiful and can be viewed from all rooms. The rooms are basic but extremely comfortable. A space heater keeps you cozy in the evening and you can...

October 2013, My daughter and I spent two nights at Posada de Quinde in Otavalo, Ecuador.
