“Beautiful place for a drink”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Luna Runtun is an exclusive hotel with an exclusive on a great view of Banos and the surrounding Andes. The service was so bad - we just ordered drinks - and we had to keep going to the service area to follow up with them. The prices, too, are out of sync with the rest of the area, which to me is just uncool. That said, if you have the time and the patience the view can't be beat.

“Best view in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

After a long hike up to the cross and an aborted attempt to get to Casa del Arbol we ended up at the Cafe del Cielo. Fabulous view over Banos. We just had coffee but the restaurant was really beautiful.

“Amazing views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

We also stayed at Luna Runtun for a few days and enjoyed drinks at the hillside gem. The views of the city are spectacular and if you're lucky, on a clear night you can see the volcano emitting sparks. It's a truly unique experience. Now that my husband taught the bartender how to make a proper martini, we'd return in a heartbeat.

“Deleicious home made food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

The foo is mostly prepared from their garden on the grounds. I am a vegetarian and there was plenty for me to eat. The variety of fresh squeezed juices is beyond delicious!
