Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
Relax in the naturally heated pools at Termas de Papallacta. The subterranean activity of one of Ecuador's many volcanoes heats the waters here, in pools ranging from 36-40 C (96-105 F). Take a dip and enjoy the view of the surrounding forested hills and the Andes in the background. Choose from shallow or deep warm pools, or circulate between the hot and cold water for the best relaxation experience.

  • I really like the place, especially the hot springs and although I have wanted to stay more days it seems a bit expensive to me, for the rest, the place is great.

  • The natural environment is already much worthwhile; the colossal mountains, lush forests, the spectacular sky. We stayed in the cabins and they are really very cozy, very good beds, very well prepared. The cabins have own thermal swimming-pool which, it is simply wonderful to be able to take a bath at night and then go to bed, it has no comparison. There are some things that seemed very strange and not according to the level to which it aspires this resort; We arrived at night, at 10, after a very long trip and without having eaten anything, it was the first thing we ask: food. The girl who received us flatly refused us the food (the restaurant closed at 9:30), and against our petitions, his response was: breakfast is served at 7 in the morning! Or the other possibility: returned to the village to buy a pizza. This is not good-level care, can not always be the hour in which the restaurant is open. An Ecuadorian friend intervened, and as a result gave us sandwiches and hot drinks. Which is to say that there was nothing to eat. Another strange thing: one day arrive 15 minutes before breakfast was over and had already taken everything. Anyway they served us very carefully the breakfast on the table, but they charged us for it! That is not correct. If the breakfast is until 10, until that time should be. A minute before or after. He also caught our attention that charged the bathrobes at spa, even for guests... Finally we did not use this enclosure. But Ray for the sum the place is beautiful and very nice. They have a very, very pretty and very well maintained hiking trail.

  • We came here late in the afternoon on a Monday. This was our last stop in Ecuador before our 11:30 flight. The grounds are beautiful and the pools are fantastic. They ranged from very warm to very hot...  read more »
  • It's quite nice. I'd recommend to plan some time to go hiking as well. Unfortunately it was very foggy when I was there. It is usually rather cold, so bring appropriate clothing.
  • Excellent short trip from Quito, this place is beautiful and the thermal pools are extremely relaxing. A little pricey but worth it.
  • It is a wonderful place, specially at night when you have all the stars to cover you while you are in the hot pool. Wonderful experience!
  • I love this place cuz. All swimmingpool are very clean,hot ♨ when I have time always go there :)
  • Rooms are solid but not great. But once out of the room, the scenery is just awesome. Plenty of hot and cold water springs including many smaller communal pools around the property. We only stayed there one day but enjoyed every minute of it.
