We have a 6- and 8-year old, and this was a great stay for the whole family: great hiking for dad, lovely spa for mom, heated pool for kids, excellent restaurant and fabulous breakfast buffet that we all enjoyed. Hosteria Duran is 20 minutes drive (in your own car) from the National Park El Cajas - AMAZING hikes, but be... More

We wandered around the small town of Banos deciding which of the hot springs in which to soak. First we went to Piedra de Agua, but learned the bathing suits for men were $12 & $19 for women. So we wandered more, and bought bathing suits from a little old lady's shop for $4 and $12 respectively. Then we checked... More

People enjoy the thermal hot swimming pool and steam baths so much they stay in them most iof the day. Until a touring German jazz band arrived, the pool seldom had more than a dozen people at any time. Hotel bathing head caps are provided as are robes and towels.

We spent an afternoon with our 6 year old daughter and had a wonderful time enjoying the mineral pool on a cool Andes day. The customer service was very good and we had a very relaxing time.

We had one of the most enjoyable weekends ever here at Hosteria Duran. The suite was well appointed, the service impeccable and the grounds and spa provided a relaxing experience surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Dinner was a delightfully intimate experience.

We were really looking forward to the hot spring pool. We arrived late afternoon on a Sunday to find the pool filled with "townies" including a multitude of yelling and screaming children. Monday morning was slightly better, but stay out of the way of "club" members who come to swim laps. The Turkish bath is a simple sauna, and no... More
