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. (Why I was quickly told to remove my t-shirt while... More

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. Next time we will do a spa treatment! I believe this is a much better choice for our family than Piedre de Agua-... More

The service was fantastic. We stayed for a week. Nice room (loved the ceilings), very clean, nice bed. Was a little scared of the bathroom. It gets very damp and slippery after a shower. And I wish there had been a shower mat...all tile bathroom= potential slip and slide...but it is a nice, clean and beautiful bathroom :) Food was... More

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

I was not visiting for the thermal pools so I can't judge that aspect of the hotel. Room was clean and comfortable and I was far enough away from the pool that the noise did not bother me. No internet service to the rooms was a negative for me, and in the lobby and dining area the internet service was... More

The view takes your breath away. The environment is relaxing. The manager was very professional. My kids had a good time in the pool. And we enjoyed their delicious hamburger. A perfect place to stay in Cuenca, Ecuador.

Having lived in Ecuador for many years, visiting many, many hotels in different cities, this one came in with very mixed reviews. I will break it done this way.

We spent a couple if nights here before moving into Cuenca and really enjoyed the quiet and relaxation. The pools are great for hanging out, but could have been warmer for my preference. The staff was very nice and the restuarant was good, but not great. The hotel is large and there were not many people there when we were,... More
