We recently visited Ecuador with our daughter and son in law who is Ecuadorian. We arrived in Banos without making a prior hotel reservation. We found this place late at night and our SIL negotiated a very good rate. We stayed for two days, enjoying the pool, spa, and the free breakfast. As a garden enthusiast, I found the entire setting absolutely enchanting. I felt like I had been transported into an island paradise! The staff was very friendly and helpful.
There is free internet. It seemed a little slow, but that was the case everywhere we stayed in Ecuador, so that may be the way it is. There is a breakfast offered with the hotel. They offer eggs and such, but much of it is authentic Ecuadorian food - ceviche, tamales, etc. Banos is a very humid place -- so beautiful with all of the falls. We noticed that our beds and sheets seemed a little clammy with all that moisture in the air. I did find the bathroom to be very poorly lit -- luckily there was a mirror in the entry I could use to put on my makeup. The pool is very beautiful at night -- you can see the stars overhead while you swim in blue/green/red water. The view from our room was very beautiful. It was really a lovely place to stay.
