We were told this was the best place to stay in Banos. We booked the Matrimonial Suite and based on the website, we were looking forward to the stay. The weather never cooperated so we did not get to see the volcano, (not Monte Selva's fault) and had to content ourselves with the supposed "world class spa". They did not... More

We stayed 2 nights there unfortunately we booked the Suit, the thing that I find awful is the bathroom ....there us no wall between the room and the toilet. If you pay for a Suite do not expect a great room, it will be better to book a regular room and maybe that will be the money worth. If you... More

We chose this out of a guide book it is at the base of the mountain and easy to walk all over town so that was great. The price was good as well with free breakfast. They say a lot about the pool and spa but it is not some where I would want to swim to be honest. You... More

We stayed for 2 nights in October and had a wonderful time. The hotel is at the end of dead-end street and partially built into the slope of the hill with the Vulcano Tungurahua in the back. October is a month of festivities - i.e. fireworks and street music, but the nights we were there all stopped by 10pm. The... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Mont Selva in August 2014 and felt the room was not worth the money we paid which was $82.00 for a double cabin (room # 202). The room smelled moldy and musty, the walls were painted brick- very unwelcoming- and worst of all, there was no wifi as stated. The jacuzzi spa didn't... More

There are hotels which think it is sufficient to be located in a touristic area and thus do not offer any service or care about maintenance in their hotel. Monte Selva was such a hotel for us. When trying to change the room we were offered they left us with the feeling to bother them. Same experience during the breakfast... More

Notably bad service, catered for national mass tourism on weekends and holidays. Dead during the week with half of the spa facilities out of order. Stains in bed cover, bathroom smells of urine. Overpriced, look for a better place for less money

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights (Friday - Sunday). Our overall impression was that it was a location used primarily by Ecuadorians or folks from this continent. It's a big complex able to accommodate large or small groups .. it was being used our weekend for a wedding reception. We took a walk up the path leading... More

The pool and the tubs in the spa are useful at $8.00 per person but beyond that I would not pay for any other service there. The ground and atmosphere were nice a quite and well kept the spa room is next to the pool area and was a little noisy.

We stayed for two nights. The arrival was efficient and our room was ready. It is at the end of the one of main streets of the town of Baños and this is one of best aspects of this hotel. It is quiet. Our room was adequately prepared. It was in the building looking towards the restaurant next to the... More
