La Estelita
Ranked #1 of 15 Hotels in Ibarra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 November 2017

We stayed here about the first part of November for three nights and it is an amazing hotel and location. When you start to really look at the restaurant and your room, you can only wonder how it was able to be built let alone have WiFi. We had stayed at hotels in Banos and Loja and thought we had great views of the city and area but both pale in comparison. More than enough choices for food and I highly recommend trying the Pisco Sour. Try to just have one. The road is not a big deal and the hotel does have a car to transport you though it was under repair when we were there. They can also easily arrange local transport. The pool is exactly as pictured and offers an unbelievable view. Service is exceptional. As an example when we asked Ivan how long the pool was open, his reply was 8:00-8:30 or would you like it open longer? Day trips are available for a train ride or hot springs near by. Stay if you can, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Presidential Suite has the best all around views.

We echo the other positive reviews as this hotel has friendly staff, the owner Ivan, is very helpful and accommodating. The hotel overlooks the city of Ibarra and mountains. Very clean. Food is delicious.

La Estelita is a must-see when visiting Ibarra. We stayed for 5 nights and were blown away by the natural beauty of the grounds and exceptional service of Ivan, his family and the staff. The food was also excellent. Although the journey up the hill is quite a challenge, you will be rewarded with an outstanding experience. Thank you Ivan for such a memorable vacation.

We stayed there for 2 nights. Although the road is a little bad, it was a nice experience. We have beautiful views from our room over the city of Ibarra and the food and service was excellent. It is a nice place to stay with family or friends.

Room Tip: All rooms have nice views.
