Reviewed 9 March 2014

We recently spent two nights here. A lovely, tranquil spot to return to after the busy activity filled Banos. Our room was beautiful, large, and well appointed --even flowers on the bed. Only drawback was that we had the street side ==and there is lots of traffic along that main road. The architecture of the hacienda type open courtyard is lovely, and the grounds as well. We enjoyed a massage at the spa ($65 and up) and two very good dinners/breakfasts at the restaurant. Service was wonderful.
Really recommend this place.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from the street in front.

We had the privilege of spending a couple of days at the Samari Resort in Baños. It was very pleasant and relaxing. The rooms are very rustic and quaint. The beds were very firm, too firm for me. We could also hear the people in the next room. The breakfast was very good.

I had the best massage ever and the food is excellent. Great staff and beautiful surroundings, it was a very relaxing stay. We would have loved to have stayed another day. I especially enjoyed the antiques scattered around.

Samari is a beautiful stop amidst volcanoes, waterfalls and thermal springs.
We wish we could stay longer.
The staff was extremely nice. Candlelit dinner in the restaurant was quite romantic.
Food was very good.

The massages are the best - we did couple massages! The pool is great! Service is great. Food is ok. The beds are hard but they the romance of the setting made up for it. We stayed 3 days and didn't want to leave!

Room Tip: The rooms by the road can be noisy but otherwise all are great!

Perfect room, Incredible Staff, great food, safe, secure and the view is fabulous. We have stayed there at least 5 times and will go back again. I can't imagine anyone not being very pleased. We have used the facilities for Business and Family getaways.
