    What an AMAZING EXPERIENCE! The thermal pools were divine. The spirit of the location is beautiful! The flowers are breath taking! The restaurant staff was so accommodating with our large group. The food was delicious. The lovely sitting areas with fireplaces were very comfortable. The concierge, front desk staff and luggage handlers were all wonderful. I loved our room!

    This place is wonderful for a short relaxing trip, it is located less than one hour from Quito or valleys. Highly recommended. You can get access to the thermal water pools directly and a few steps from your rooms at the hotel, also you will find other bigger thermal water pools in the spa space, the d Food is very good too.

  • “Wonderful Thermal Baths”

    Termas de Papallacta is picturesque and inviting. The thermal pools that surround all of the rooms are easily accessible – right outside your door! Although the air temperature was cool, we had no trouble coming out in our bathing suits and enjoying the warm, thermal pools and just relaxing. I had a 30 minute back and neck massage in the separate spa building that also included my arms and head. Wonderful! The food in the restaurant was good which is good as the hotel is in a remote location. Looking for a unique experience, you will find it at Termas de Papallacta.
