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

Thank you for your feedback. We have installed signs all along the way and construction has finished. It’s disappointing to hear that the rooms and suites didn’t meet with your expectations.

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.

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.
