The hotel is great, good service and cleaness!!! The breakfast is very good as you can enjoy different Ecuadorian traditional menus commonly served in the morning. Baby facilities could be improved as well as the access to the swimming pool specially during raining days.

If you are looking for a getaway in the scenic mountains of Ecuador, Samari will be a good choice. However, if you are expecting pleasant service and pampering....well...maybe stay at the Marriott in Quito. The service and overall attitude of the people working here is average at best.

“Ask for a room with a view of the mountains, not the road.”

“The rooms aren't very bright (low lighting) and so the upper floors may be better suited to having natural light come through the windows.”
