I was in Samari last week and I loved the view. The hotel is located in the core of Baños so you can walk in down town. The view is fantastic from Samari! The mountains in front are gorgeous. If you love mountains and nature go there.

I especially remember a man named Dorian. Several times during our stay here he helped me find something. He wasn't in a hurry and spent time talking to me while I was signing...

We were so excited to be spending 4 nights at the Samari after a long day of travel. While only one of us spoke Spanish, the staff seemed very standoffish. We were given a room key and that was it.
