Our reputation on Tripadvisor

  • Wonderful stay

    We had a very comfortable stay at the terms. We rented a cabana and bunked in with our hot spring pool right next to the house. The massage treatment were fantastic. The place was restful, comfortable, clean, environmentally friendly. The food at the restaurant was Ok, nothing to rave about, and I would say that would be the lower side of the place…

  • Great to relax and admire nature

    I hadn’t been there for 2 years. They have made a lot of improvements, especially in the shower area. They have everything, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, hair dryers. If you go early, make sure to take snacks since the restaurant does not open until 11am. Also remember to stay hydrated, I prefer to take Gatorade rather than water. The scenary is beautiful, I was able to admire 2 humming birds while relaxing in one of the 6 pools. Every pool gas a different temperature so you can jump from pool to pool. This is a place you do not want to kiss in Ecuador. The price for adults is $22 each. Which I think is reasonable but the massages are a bit pricey.

  • 100% relaxation in natural hot springs

    The cabins are clean and cozy, the staff is friendly, the location is unique. I highly recommend visiting the springs and soaking in the beautiful nature that is around you. The drive is 1.5h from Quito on a wide and safe road.

  • Lovely Hotel on the Top of the World

    My group stayed here for two nights in March 2018. This is my third visit and third group. Everyone loved the food and quality of the rooms. The rooms are large and well furnished. Casitas are invidivual houses around their own thermal pool. Rooms 2-6, etc are in a lodge setting with shared thermal pools. We stayed in room 6 this visit and didn’t have to share a thermal pool with anyone. Very quiet and comfortable. Warm in the rooms despite the outside temperatures.
