“Tranquility n a Gorgeous Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2011

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.

The staff was very helpful when a family had an extremely loud party down the street. They made their best effort to correct the situation

Here on a school trip and could not have asked for a better hotel. walking distance to the central and felt very safe even late at night. the hotel is close enough to walk everywhere but during the night, it was very peaceful. highly recommended and there are so many hammocks! love love love it!

The Floresta Hotel is a very calm and relaxing place that really allows you to enjoy Banos to the fullest. We stayed there as a large class of 30 and they helped us with anything that we needed. The service there is spectacular, if you need anything they help you. The rooms are very clean and nice, also they have hammocks all over including in their beautiful garden. My experience at The Floresta is one I will never forget!

We just got back from spending 9 days at La Floresta Hotel in Banos.It is absolutely charming. It has an open courtyard with flowers and trees, and beautiful views. The rooms are large, very clean, and decorated with local art. The staff is helpful, and friendly. The location is wonderful, a short walk to all the shops and restaurant. The breakfast is excellent, and the owner is always there to help. We will return!

La Floresta was an experience unlike any other! The hotel had a lovely Spanish charm and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and the decor was perfect. Every room has a hammock which made the experience just that much more enjoyable. The bathrooms were also very nice which is always an important factor. The hotel was located in the perfect location. It is close to everything but far enough that you are not affected by the noise. The hotel is surrounded by spectacular views and has a very natural feel. Overall, La Floresta is certainly one of the nicest hotels I´ve ever staying in and that´s considering all of my travels. I would recommend it to anyone!
