I had a great weekend with my husband and little girl in this place. The service and attention is wonderful, everything very clean and the breakfast delicious with a lot of variety. The only thing I did not like much is the noise of the cars because our bedroom had the window directly to the street, and its location, in... More

We recently visited Ecuador with our daughter and son in law who is Ecuadorian. We arrived in Banos without making a prior hotel reservation. We found this place late at night and our SIL negotiated a very good rate. We stayed for two days, enjoying the pool, spa, and the free breakfast. As a garden enthusiast, I found the entire... More

We traveled here for our honeymoon and had a great stay! Everything was cleaned and well maintained. The gardens on the property were beautiful! Close enough to the city to walk but far enough that you felt secluded. The staff was great-especially Silivia! The hotel arranged excursions for us. We recommend this place to anyone looking for both adventure and... More

My husband and I traveled to Peru and Ecuador in May/June 2014. In between vigorous activities, we stayed at Samari Spa Resort in Banos. It was a luxurious paradise for us. The grounds, suites, food, spa service and staff were exceptional. We highly recommend it and note it as one of the highlights of our trip. Thank you Samari!

Highly recommend it. Family friendly. Very relaxing. Close to the city of Banos. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The staff was very respectful and helpful. The hotel is very well maintained. They welcomed us with a drink and fresh fruit in our rooms. The weather was great all the time we were there.
