Las Palmeras is a traditional Andean farmhouse with thick adobe walls, wooden beams, tiled floors and large fireplaces all giving it a welcoming feel. It is just a ten minute drive from Otavalo yet the setting in the Quichinche Valley surrounded by mountains is authentically rural. The gardens are full of colourful flowers and birds.
Accommodation is in cottages located in the gardens. These are appropriately rustic in style yet incorporate modern facilities such as en-suite bathroom, safe and Wi-Fi. They vary in size from singles to triples and there are connecting rooms which are ideal for families. The garden house consists of two bedrooms, a lounge with TV and minibar, dining room and kitchen, perfect for those desiring greater independence. All rooms feature a fireplace which can be lit in the evening if you wish. The hot water bottle to warm your bed is a thoughtful touch.
The organic vegetable garden provides many of the ingredients used in the meals you enjoy during your stay with other food sourced from nearby farms, ensuring only the freshest produce is used. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cafe and bar are good places to mingle with other guests as you unwind, as is the lounge. The terrace is a lovely place to rest as you take in the scenery and fresh air. There are attractive locally made artworks and ornaments throughout the hotel which provide a sense of place.
While at Las Palmeras you can visit Otavalo and other Andean market towns for a taste of local life, go horse riding, cycling, walking and take part in cooking and Spanish language lessons. There's a games room where you can enjoy table tennis and billiards.
