My husband and I stayed in Samari Spa Resort for two days and it was amazing. Beautiful hotel in Baños, great breakfast, awesome food in the hotel restaurant but the most important, excellent service. Samuel was so helpful with us, they gave us an excellent service.

Lovely old but restored buildings in a beautiful location, this hotel resort has lots of character and could be even more comfortable with a few improvements. Room was spacious but a little basic, wifi was dead slow. Breakfast and dinner were served in a stylish restaurant and were good. The staff were attentive. We stayed during some cold and wet...

We pulled up to a gorgeous entrance and after checking in were led to a gorgeous room. We had splurged and selected the suite with a beautiful mountain view and a jacuzzi tub. However, our stay in this room was short lived as we were smoked out when the chimney flue was not opened when the staff lit us a... More

Samara Spa Resort is truly stunning. Nestled amount the mountains the views are great. The grounds themselves are spectacular and evoke a fairytale atmosphere to explore within.

We were pleasantly surprised at finding this jewel. I'll recommend my friends stay here. The rooms were very clean and equivalent to a four star resort. The guests' comfort was obviously a high focus and details were not missed. As an example - it rains frequently in Baños and umbrellas are provided for guests liberally throughout the resort. The staff... More

We stayed here for three nights on a family vacation. We had side-by-side rooms with adults in one room and teens in the next. Beautiful setting, huge clean rooms, fantastic service. Clearly at the luxury level. Unbelievable breakfast. We used pool and spa and among the best anywhere, Don't eat dinner here, though, there are better, cheaper options in town.... More

Beautiful grounds, lovely rooms, great service. An oasis in Baños. It is about 1.5 miles to the center of Baños, which is a bit far to walk to. It has a restaurant and very nice breakfast. An indoor pool in the spa area is very nice. Would definitely recommend.

We chose Samari for our honeymoon stay in Banos. The resort was so sweet to upgrade our room given the occasion. Town is a $1.50 taxi ride (one way) or 15 minute walk. Our room was a suite which had a large bed, fireplace, sitting areas and a large bathroom with a shower and separate whirlpool tub. It was clean... More
