8/10 Very good

The hotel is very beautiful and the staff was very helpful. However, we were the only guests at the property. I had purchased a King Suite through Expedia, but when I checked in they told me that I didn't pay enough for the suite and they tried to put me in a regular room. After waiting almost two hours they gave me the suite I paid for. The room and view were spectacular, but frustrating that they didn't honor the room I paid for on Expedia immediately.

My girlfriend and I had a great time at Medina del Lago. This place has a gorgeous view from the rooms, lobby and restaurant. The food and service were fantastic. The staff was really friendly and made sure our stay was great. We enjoyed the use of the jacuzzi and sauna every day we were there (they also have a pool). For anyone having to work remotely, we had no problems with the wifi and were able to have Zoom video calls daily. We are definitely planning to come back!

10/10 Exceptional

A beautiful place, top level. Spectacular views of San Pablo lake and Imbabura mountain from everywhere at the hotel. We had a two persons suite with beautiful views, a fireplace and a nice hot tub. Food was delicious, the crew was so nice and thoughtful, there are beautiful paintings made by local artists everywhere and the whole experience is really satisfying. The only downside- the isolation between rooms is pretty poor and we could hear everything that was happening and being said at the rooms around us.
