This is one of the great places to stay in South America. Maria and Ricardo, the owners, are wonderfully hospitable and their employees, most of whom have been there for a decade or more, are helpful, friendly and always do their best to make your stay a great experience.
In addition to the dedicated staff, the building is marvelous. It blends into the lush local vegetation and every attention to physical detail has been attended to (Ricardo is an engineer). The rooms are spacious, impeccably clean and outfitted with modern conveniences, including North American electrical systems (which is the norm in Ecuador) and very good wireless Internet connections. The entire first floor is handicap accesable
Breakfast is included in the very reasonable tariff and is prepared to order. It is well-presented and delicious!
There are many hotels and hostels in Banos, but nothing compares to this gem. Just make sure to book well ahead because it is very popular and frequently sold out.
