My experience at Samari was incredible. I spent a few days in Banios with my girlfriend and was told one of the best Hotels in Ecuador is Samari. We did not just experience great personalized service but also tasted amazing food. I was very surprised of how much attention to detail they put into their dishes. Every item on the...

Its a great luxury hotel with a fantastic set up. Little disappointing that many of the facilities are shut to save money during off peak times which is not something a hotel of this caliber and cost should really do. Ok but at a too high price

Samari has been a Great place to visit and stay. Not only that you experience a unique atmosphere surrounded by nature and luxury but you will definitely feel as a home away from home. Wonderful staff attending where the most important person is the guest. Food exceeded my expectations. No doubt in returning.

What a nice place! All the rooms are so nice and authentic! Only the bathroom is a little to small. The food is great! And the views from the garden are wonderful! The spa is a nice extra! If you are in Banos, go there!!!

We spent 3 nights at the Samari Spa in Banos. Indeed it is a very beautiful hotel. However, out of the three nights, we could hardly sleep in the first two. For such an expansive hotel that is too much. On the first night one of the beds in the room squeaked and made noises in each movement. The problem...

Samari Spa Resort was a lifesaver with kids during a rainy season visit to Banos in June. Loved this hotel with kids because there are ample grounds to explore, a small playground, soccer field, fab pool and roaming peacocks. Banos is not a colonial city so staying in the city is not a must though the restaurant scene there is...

I have stayed at Samarii on multiple occasions and have until this visit been very pleased.
