“A Good Choice”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

Just a short cab ride up into the hills outside of Banos. Quiet rooms with a nice sitting deck and view of the valley. Good friendly service. Large clean pool situated in a nice garden area. Good food at a reasonable price. Nice walk to a waterfall behind the hotel. Highly recommended.

Banos in Ecuador is a fascinating place...but with few really nice hotels. I stayed in Estancia de Dulcelina and I did the right choice: brand new, very elegant and clean, nice swimming pool and, most of all, the location: on the hills in a wonderful place, not too far not too close to Banos, sorrounded by forests and nature

What a find! Away from the typical hosterias that cater to backpackers only, there is an oasis high above Banos. The road up there, across the small bridge that spans a river tumbling down the mountainside, was our first clue that we were onto something special.

Ask for the rooms closest to the water - you go to sleep at night hearing the rushing water from the river, and you sit out on your private balcony in the mornings overlooking expansive grounds and established gardens. Total privacy, total serenity, total relaxation, and yet you're only about ten minutes away from Banos itself.

The place looks brand new, the sheets are of the finest quality (important to me and surprisingly hard to find in Ecuador), and the service was excellent. Nice bathrooms with tubs and overhead showers, and a big flatscreen TV against the wall.

Our 8 yr old loved the pool and running around exploring. There are trails around the area going up to the river.

One of the best features of the hotel is the restaurant. Loved the menu, loved the choices, and loved the creativity of the chef. Gourmet, without the exorbitant prices. Breakfast is included in the stay, and lunch and dinner is served in a large dining room overlooking the pool and the grounds - huge glass windows everywhere.

If you prefer to be in the midst of the hustle and bustle and fiestas and music, then this place is probably not your cup of tea. But for people who'd like to have a quiet, exotic getting away from it all experience, I can't recommend this place high enough.

Room Tip: Ask for the corner room on the second story, farthest from the pool and closest to the river - they...
