The facilities are incredible and serene. The massage was outstanding. However, this hotel is not a 5 star hotel as it's lacking small amenities such as shower gels, liquid hand soap. The hotel restaurant was expensive and the "maito" was mediocre. The biggest problem with this hotel was its price. They charged us a 190 per night, and at those...

I stayed here with a group of friends and family for a girl's night away and it was an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable 24 hours.

Luxurious rooms with extremely comfortable beds. Bath was spacious and water was hot with plenty of pressure. Upon arrival, we found a plate of fresh fruit and flower petals on the bed.

Stayed here one night as part of a tour. Just a lovely place we'd come back to on our own in different circumstances. Rooms spacious. Beds comfortable. Grounds amazing. Relaxing pool and hot tub. Great massage experience. Good food. Friendly, attentive people. Even the peacocks were friendly!

The grounds are beautiful, and well-kept. Peacocks wander about, as well as chickens and roosters. Our room was spacious, and we had a great view of the mountains from the room. A few annoyances. Banos gets cold at night, and the rooms have no heat. They are equipped with fireplaces and the staff will arrange to build a fire and...

This is a old monastery refurbished and modernized, the staff could not be more helpful, to be honest the price is not bad, because it has all you need to be pampered and relaxed. The restaurant is top of the line. Every corner has history is located at just 10 minutes from the city of Baños Ecuador.

“The rooms aren't very bright (low lighting) and so the upper floors may be better suited to having natural light come through the windows.”
