...there's no getting away from it - Benito calls the shots here :-)
This is a wonderful hostal in the chilled and stunning town of Banos, for many reasons - Jim & Marshia are excellent hosts - was a real pleasure for us to meet you, and your hat-stealing menagerie ;-) as with so many folks we met in Ecuador they really made us welcome, chatting with Marshia with red wine to hand on our first night was a highlight. The location is perfect - beautiful views of the waterfall, a 30 second stroll to the Piscina de la Virgen (wow, what a place :-) ). The gallery aspect of the hostal was excellent - superb lovingly created artwork everywhere - my personal favourite is the hard hitting mural on the roof terrace; and I could wax lyrical about the food for many a day - Heuvos Rancheros for breakfast should be the law, although the other breakfasts seemed to go down just as well! Another law should be passed for Paella Andina for second breakfast, lunch, dinner & tea! Gorgeous, as indeed was everything we tried off the extensive menu. Vegetarian eating in Ecuador was generally effortless and high quality, but the food here was incredible. All the staff were supremely friendly, and thought nothing of rearranging the kitchen so we could retrieve the lost hat from Benito's claws :-). So yep, that's a recommendation from me. Basically we cannot wait to return to beautiful Banos, and this is the place to stay.
