The food absolutely stood out. It was the best I have ever had not only in Ecuador, but anywhere in the world. The place is total peace and quiet apart from the sounds of nature. The Spa treatments helped relax. The Jacuzzi in the room was a bonus. This is the perfect place to regain your self if your life... More

We wanted to visit a little secluded place and this is what this place is. I booked this place with Expedia and after a very long drive with no signs anywhere whatsoever, we somehow, found this "resort". The entrance is in a very poor condition, there is construction debris and a big whole by the parking lot. When we got... More

We visited Yumbo Spa from Mindo one afternoon for a bit of a pamper. It is an hour's drive away on slow roads, but we received a wonderful welcome and had a lovely lunch. It is in a lush hillside location and the pool and spa were fed by a natural spring. It was raining and cloudy so I cannot... More

Maybe it is not the most luxurious, but definitely it's a great place to get away from the city and enjoy with your significant other. My girlfriend and I went there to celebrate our dating anniversary. I picked up the "Romantic Package". It was awesome. Our suite was decorated with candles and flowers. A candlelight romantic dinner was set up... More

Another great time for us, kids included. We had the pleasure of staying at Yumbo when it first opened and decided to go back again because we enjoyed the facility and the people. Back then, we were the only visitors. This time, my kids had other kids to socialize with and we had a couple of other adults with whine... More

July 2013 My experience at El Yumbo: The time was about the third week of July, 2013 . My family and I visited Ecuador, we stayed in the area of Quito and 2 nights we stayed at El Yumbo resort. El Yumbo is out of the ordinary. This is a fan place with something to do for all, adults and... More

We stayed several days at Yumbo and loved every minute of our stay. We were looking forward to fun,rest and relaxation with our family...and we got it! The children spent many hours in the pool and outdoor spa. We loved the nature walk with owner, Pedro, and enjoyed the beautiful cascades at the bottom of the mountain. We were surrounded... More

At first Yumbo seems rather remote - but this soon becomes part of the charm! We had a lovely big room and a spa bath all decorated in petals and flowers. The view was fantastic. The pool and jacuzzi were lovely and as we were the only people staying at the time they asked us first before heating up the... More

I went to Yumbo this weekend. Spent a night in the jacuzzi suite. The rooms are like decorated bugalows. We tired to go in the jacuzzi (the one by the pol) on Saturday and Sunday. It was cold both days!!! The food was ok but not delicious. Fot the price I paid (230 USD) per night, I wouldve expected a... More

Sometimes we find those special places that really make a difference in our lives and we can really appreciate what they can do for us. I have had the pleasure to meet a man with a vision to make just such a place. This is a sub tropical little paridise carved out of the hillside in a way that makes... More
