This Hotel have hot springs and I hear they are wonderful for your health. The best part of the hotel is that they have a 24/7 doctor in the premises at no cost to the people staying there. The altitude sometimes makes you sick.
The room does not have too many things. They give you free water, hair dryer, and the regular bathroom things. There is no TV. You also get two pills in case you have a headache.
Some people in our group had a massage and they enjoyed having it.
The breakfast was simple, but enough.

Great location in cloud forest not far from Quito. The hot springs are lovely, very clean and well kept. There is a public bathing area which costs $7 to enter or if you are staying at the hotel they are free. There is also a Spa which is a lot more expensive, to use the baths here it cost $12 if you are staying in the hotel, or $19 if you are visiting. They also have a selection of massages and facial treatments. However if you are staying in the hotel you need go no further than the pools in front of your room. Lovely and hot and relaxing and just a step out of your room. Lay back and enjoy the heat and spectacular surroundings.

This hotel is outside of the cloud forest in the Andes Mountains. It is a great location. The rooms were ok but the grounds were amazing. Make sure you soak in the Thermal Waters at the hotel. I love that there are pools right in front of the rooms.

After a day of touring, the beauty of the grounds made the hot springs inviting. Made our way to the spa and enjoyed a dip before massage. We were so relaxed. Trying to find the way back to our room would have been near impossible on the poorly lit trails without flashlight. Following a no-hum dinner, we returned to our spartan digs. It was a good thing we did not "jump" into bed--it would have caused injury, the bed was concrete hard. Definitely not a good night's sleep.
Upon rising, we did find hot water for the shower. Breakfast buffet was again ho--hum.
Oh well, it was only one night.

Room Tip: Bring a flashlight no matter where you stay and an air mattress.

The setting for this Hotel is spectacular. Nestled in the Andes Mountains, 40 miles from Quito, this quaint hotel is the perfect overnight stop for weary travelers. The relaxing hot springs are interspersed among the cabins. Simply step out of your door, and immerse! I did not have enough time for the assortment for spa treatments, maybe next time. The restaurant was a disappointment in the slow service and mediocre food.

I was only able to spend one night at Termas, but loved what I was able to experience.
The hot springs soaking areas located right outside your door step is truly a unique feature.
The room I occupied was warm and inviting. Bed was average but comfy. Nice restroom & toiletries.
The restaurant was just okay..guess they have a captive audience because once you arrive after a long trek up to the Resort..who feels like leaving again to find food?!
I would like to get back to this resort again some day based on it's uniqueness and gorgeous surroundings.

We spent here one night and liked the location of the hotel. We stayed in one of the lodges which had one small bed and a double bed. The interior was sparcely decorated but okay. The walls between the lodges were thin so you could hear people talking in the next lodge. The pools between the lodges were warm and lovely (open 24 hrs).

In the morning we went to the Spa. Unfortunately the treatments started only after 1 pm do we could only use the pools. They served trout in the restaurant which was very good the rest of the food was average. Service was average as well and in the restaurant not always that friendly.
