I stayed 4 days/nights at Samari Spa. My room (#32) was huge. The bed and bedding were first class and so comfortable. Views of the mountains were unbelievable and the windows opened to allow a breeze to fill the room. The Samari property is full of fantastic gardens, walkways and sitting areas. The service and restaurant was excellent. The room... More

Great resort, never been to Baños and it was definitely a great experience. Beautiful view out of the spa area. Fruits in the suite definitely a great detail, I would actually wake up at 3 in the morning due to time difference and have a fruit which was lovely. My friends and I have a saying of Ecuador; NATURAL FRESH,... More

We stayed at Samari for two nights over Christmas holiday last year. The accomodations (beautiful suite-type lodging with a few sofas, entryway, desk, etc) were clean and comfortable and the grounds of the resort were maintained in excellent condition. We were welcomed with a nice fruit basket and some snacks as well. It was a nice peaceful contrast to the... More

The hotel is a very nice place to stay in. Good service. Clean. Indoor pool with spa. Beautiful surroundings. Excellent details like free soup for the kids (never have seen it in Ecuador by far), hot water bags in your bed, fruit basket in the room, fireplace lit at night. Very nice! Whether some details can be improved? Sure. Every... More

My gf and I traveled throughout this amazing country in late January and had the pleasure of staying at Samari for two nights. We occupied one of their suites which had a fireplace, king sized bed, and an immaculate jacuzzi tub (I'm a bit OCD about cleanliness and have never actually used one while vacationing; exception made). There's a quaint... More

I was in Ecuador last year and went to Banos with my gorgeous girlfriend to enjoy some days holiday. Samari Hotel was definitely a great choice. Located in a former convent excellently old style decorated with broad care to the details, when you arrive you are immediately greeted by the marvelous peacock and "his harem". The friendly staff took care... More

I traveled around Ecuador in January and Samari was by far my favorite place to stay! The property is incredibly beautiful and the rooms equally as nice! Great breakfast and dinner with helpful, friendly English speaking staff. I definitely plan on returning.
