If you're a foodie, the breakfast is great, loads of traditional options and they care about how the food is presented, opens your appetite :). Service (at the table) is not that fast but that's OK, we're not in a rush. Rooms are incredible, we got a huge one, plenty of space to enjoy being inside, Jacuzzi was nice, with...

This is a great resort- only a short and cheap taxi ride from the town. The scenery is breathtaking and the grounds are nothing short of superb. The rooms are more like an apartment and include a fireplace. The massage I had was great. However if they charged a bit less for spa visits I probably would have had one...

One of the nicest and most unique hotels I've ever stayed at. We were a little disappointed at first only because we had booked the matrimonial suite but when we arrived it was taken, but the next day we were upgraded to a suite for no extra cost. Everything was clean, the beds were very comfy, the views were great...

The green areas are lovely and spa services are good for a relaxing day. In need of better upkeep, rooms were musty and we had some problems with the hot water. Wifi did not work at all, restaurant food is just ok, but there aren't many quality offerings in this area. This is the best I've seen in this area,...

This hotel far exceeded my expectations. The hotel is lovely. The grounds and landscaping were extraordinary. The hotel has a very relaxing and calming feeling to it. The room was very spacious and clean, and the service exceptional. I would highly recommend this hotel.

From the moment we first arrived the staff made us feel like this was our home. We booked for two nights and then added four more. We would have added more but, sadly, they were already booked and we needed to be back at work. This is a top vacation spot and should be on everyone's "Bucket List". Simply amazing!...

Samari Resort is an anomaly in Ecuador but in a good way. The property is outstanding and beautifully maintained. The staff is attentive to guests' every need. The rooms are nicely decorated and the premises are full of antique collectables. While the property is on the main road, the rooms are quiet. No air conditioning though. We enjoyed using Samari...
