I took 2 weeks of classes with Mayra, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience . I was sick one day and it was no problem to make up the class at another time and date. Mayra and her staff were very patient during the classes and also made classes fun by going to the local markets and... More

Mayra has put together a great staff and great environment to learn Spanish. I spent 3 months in Baños learning Spanish while taking short trips to explore Ecuador. My homestay with Yolanda and Ramero Reyes and their family could not have been better. My private room, outstanding food and hospitality were all 5 star. My instructor, Cristina was also outstanding... More

Mayra set up my Spanish classes and homestay at very short notice and everything went smoothly. The classroom was wonderfully quiet and personal, with only me and my teacher, Christina, chatting informally together between formal grammatical lessons over the course of 4 hours a day. The homestay was lovely too, the family were open to helping me learn as much... More

Spanish classes at Mayra's school are great. Mayra was very accommodating in fitting me in for lessons around activities in Baños. My teacher was very knowledgable and patient. The classes are inexpensive and well organised. Vale la Pena (worth it!)

Had a good time in banos staying in Mayra's studio as well as taking lessons, no switch and bait, just a woman running a Spanish school. It always helps with having a clear picture of what the purpose for the classes are to get the best result.. Banos can be a loud place nighttime so pack earplugs or go out... More

I sent Mayra several messages in regards to booking her place and received no response. A day later we attempted to contact her again through my friend's account. We received an immediate response however it I was a bait and switch claiming the room advertised was no longer available and offering a less desirable room for a higher price. I... More

A friend and I stayed here for a week while traveling Ecuador. Myra was very helpful the second we arrived. The apt was clean and had all the necessary items one would need in an apartment. It was not expensive and after traveling for weeks and staying in hostels it was nice to have our own little apt, to relax,... More

We spent 4 weeks at Mayras, both in an apartment (#2) and taking Spanish lessons. When we arrived Mayra gave us a map of Banos and pointed out places of interest which was good to get our bearings straight away. The apartment was well presented with the kitchen equipped with everything we needed. Nice and spacious, hot water and wifi.... More

I spent one week at Mayra's Spanish school, whilst doing an organised homestay through the shool. For a beginner the lessons were very good, and covered all the basic vocab and grammar. My teacher Emma was great - and I learnt a lot, especially in our 30 minute breaks where we would chat about all sorts! My homestay was fantastic... More

I stumbled upon Mayra's Spanish School and apartments shortly after I arrived in Banos. I was looking to take Spanish lessons and I was staying at a hostel a bit of a walk out of the town centre. I ended up switching to Mayra's apartments while I took lessons for three weeks. I had classes 4 hours a day, Monday-Friday.... More
