You pay between 90-120usd for a 10usd room.. That had fleas on the bed, the curtains didnt keep sunlight out of the room, for breakfast we were greeted with a plate full of dirt and no silverware, the worlds worst banana (We are in the Banana republic..), coffee wasnt ready and they illegally keep endangered species as pets. Other guests... More

We couldn't have enjoyed our overnight here more and only wished we had more time. Great Jacuzzi, adorable cabin near the pool, delicious buffet and wonderful service. Don't be deceived when driving up...once inside, it's like being in a natural paradise complete with parrots. I was delighted to explore and discover a wide range of details in the artwork and...

Hotel Spa Miramelindo is a nice spot spot in Rio Verde, on the way from Baños to Puyo. The have a view really nice rooms on the back where I stayed. Don't know the other rooms but I assume they are a bit smaller. The food is good, service could be a bit better but it's all clean and well... More

We spent 2 nights here in October, which must be an off month for travel in Ecuador. The first night, we were the only people in the place, and it was pretty clear that they were using the down time for maintenance. As a result, the pool was closed, as were the spa offerings. But we weren't there for those,... More

First room3 cockroaches. Next room No hot water and humidity smell, next room without asking for a change or any complain a cloud of bugs on the ceiling. Dirty kitchen and impolite owner. I was trying to tell the owner the bad experience but he interrupted me trying to hush me. Do not stay here

First of all, the spa (turkish bath/sauna) was not functioning and it looks like it hasn't in awhile, and it won't be anytime soon. Second, stuff was stolen out of our room (iPod and clothes), which was also disappointing. We didn't notice that our items were missing until we were gone so we called to ask if by chance we...

If you are looking for a place that is away from the hustle and bustle of Banos, Miramelindo Spa Hotel is the place for you. The courtyard is full of very unique tropical plants. A live parrot will greet you in the morning. The pool is small and clean. The whirlpool is a wonderful place to relax after a day... More

We had a wonderful lunch at the Miramelindo after we had visited the Pailon de Diablo ! The food was lovely and the staff so friendly. Unfortunately we were'nt staying there as we were going on to Cuenca but it looked like a stunning place to have a break from travelling. Very close to lots of attractions too.

A colorful parrot, soft pillows, and the lush garden are a sight for the weary traveler. Fresh fruit drinks and a pretty yummy restaurant offering that has unusual painted furniture. There is a guitar by the fireplace. The manager is quite helpful and he speaks English. The hot tub was okay, not too hot but the river sweeps past as... More

This is one of those hotels where you arrive as a guest and leave as family! We happened to arrive on the day after Manuel and Patti's sons wedding. So there was a buzz in the air from the start. Everywhere you look in this place are Patti's lovely paintings - on every wall in the whole hotel. It really... More
