The people of this hotel ruined our stay.

We had a wonderful stay at Luna Runtun. Everything we could think of was taken car of. The room was amazing, the food delicious, the staff friendly, the price reasonable. We definitely come back here when in Ecuador :)

Came with friends (3 girls, 1 guy). We all had a massaged and Sauna - then different scrubs etc. The whole experience was really top class and we all highly recommend it. Make sure you book ahead and are willing to spend around $60-120 for a worthwhile visit.

Manager and customer service are rude and impolite. There is a way to answer a client/customer and this place knows nothing about it. View you get from the spa is nice but ive seen better, staff should realise that and change their behavior for the best.

Stayed here as part of a Pachamama Alliance Journey. An elegant resort high above Banos. Beautiful room, well appointed, with one of the most extraordinary views I've ever seen from any accommodation. Spa experience was marvelous. Good meals. Warm, helpful staff--many with good English, too.

Luna Runtun's 310 acres of unspoilt Andean forest are located on the oriental flank of the active Tungurahua volcano (5.016M), 400m above the charming town of Banos, gateway to the Amazon rainforest, surrounded by Sangay and Llanganates National Parks.
