- “Relaxing pools in lovely setting”simply-peregrinating4 of July 2017
We stopped at Termas de Papallacta on our way from Quito to Misahuallí, and it proved to be a very relaxing stop. The pools are in a lovely location set in gardens. Unfortunately there was a lot of mist so we could not see the mountains but that did not spoil our visit. The whole area was very clean and the towels we hired were thick and fluffy. There were places to change with lockers. We chose to go in the medium warm pool and one of the hotter pools, they were lovely and so relaxing. There were plenty of places to sit by the poolside when the water got too hot or when we had stayed in for the maximum time. There are clear health and safety rules and information boards to maximise your enjoyment of the pools. There is a small shop where we bought hot chocolate and a chocolate bar on leaving. A really worthwhile visit
- “Completely relaxing!”scrawford8019 of July 2017
We stayed at this property as part of a Gate 1 group. Every aspect from the food to the room to the spa to the thermal pools was amazing! Would have loved to stay here forever! The internet is sketchy and easiest to pick up in the main lobby. Food was great as was service! I would suggest that they leave tip envelopes at the SPA for you to leave a tip because once you are in your robe, all belongings are locked in the locker and it makes it weird to run out from getting your massage to go and get money out of your locker.

We spent one night here during our 12-day trip in Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands. This place had kiddie pools right in front of each room and a nice outdoor pool. My mom and I had Spa service with steam bath, massage, and thermal pool. All in all, a nice place with rustic log rooms for couples and families.
