- “Gorgeous and tranquil scenery”E. E2 of October 2016
We stayed here as part of a guided tour and loved this property. Literally. 10 feet outside the door of our cabin type room were hot mineral pools where you can take a dip all hours of the day and night. The property also had a fabulous spa where we took advantage of a spa pkg. It included unlimited time in the 3 (?) huge mineral pools, private turkish eucalyptus steam room followed by a massage. A fabulous way to treat yourself.

We had a late night return flight to the USA. My wife and i decided to visit the spa before our flight back.This was the best choice we made.My wife is used to spa treatments etc, but i am not a pool person. I decided too join in and try the spa.
I was expecting to be out in an hour, we came out 5 hours later!!! Enjoyed the experience very much. The hot springs have some sort of soothing effect..
The property was immaculate and well kept. The people working at the desk were helpful and friendly.
The surroundings were really nice. i would upload my pictures, maybe later.
all in all it is worth at least trying for a few hours.
i am defintely arriving again soon, with my friends and stay at the hotel for a few days.

- “Relaxed Environment… Only using Spa.. I would love to stay one night..”Rogers R6 of September 2016
Nice experience.. my third time in this place (Using SPA). but first one during a sunny day… take care with solar protection… sun is incredibly powerful at this altitude. Arrives early of preference to enjoy pools during weekend with no much people sharing it… Restaurant is fine but it could be much better.If you are driving from Quito please consider and get away from some drivers that don’t know elementary road education… specially if you are back to Quito using Freeway with high stepped angle… there is a small fragment on road which is being attended due close landslide… no much warning signs alerting about it.. Landscape is very nice and during sunny days is possible to see Antisana Volcano from La Virgen area.. highest point of the road… then.. follow signs and enjoy your day…
