My family stayed at the Samari Resort this past July for a couple of days. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The staff and especially the owner, Ms. Tanya make this place truly unique. Everyone was extremely accommodating and wanted to ensure our every needs were met. My three young daughters were able to explore the vast and beautiful grounds.... More

Samari has huge potential, nice garden, building, Spa, beds, food and wifi, but I totally missed the professional and warm and welcoming service of the Ecuadorian Hacienda's. For a five star resort with expensive rooms I would at least expect the following: Hammocks in the garden Nice and comfy sunbathing chairs in the gardens with parasols for all guests A... More

20 of our family (ages teens to 80) visited the Banos area in January. What a treat! We had individual cabins which looked over a beautiful valley. To our east was Tungurahua a snow capped volcano. Each cabin was well decorated and extremely comfortable. I would definitely go back again! Downtown was much more comercial and oriented to tourists than... More

We chose to go to the Samari Spa resort as a honeymoon spot for our wedding in Ecuador after visiting the previous year looking for venues. We were blown away with the appearance of the resort. The pool and spa area was an excellent way to decompress after the wedding and the many excursions we did in the Banos area.... More

Only a short stay, but enough to understand and appreciate the quality of this high quality hotel, in a nice location just a little outside the city, with a great green area, a good SPA, high quality rooms and very well kept, also with high level personnel. Congratulations to who is driving all this !!

The hotel is the best in Banos, but nevertheless it is a little outworn. As many locations in Ecuador, it is not well kept, except for the garden. The bathroom and the hotel room need some renovations.. It has a good location, a big garden, which is well kept, but wooden bridges and terrasses are broken. The breakfast was very... More

Looks beautiful but walls are paper-thin so you can hear traffic noise & also noise from other rooms & the corridor. There is no form of heating that we have come across & the lights are too dark to do much by, certainly not put makeup on or read! The pool is nice but was full of kids. Thank goodness... More

I stayed at Samari because the Luna Runtun disappointed me and I am very glad I did. The staff is excellent and very accommodating. The breakfast is delicious/very authentic. The grounds are impeccable and beautiful as well as the rooms. The only problem I had was that the lighting at night needs to be improved for safety reasons. Also they... More
