Pros: The expedition activity and staff were exceptional. Everyone went way above and beyond to care for our party. The details were really special including being greeting with a warm way cloth each time you entered, to the fruit, personal note, water bottles, and chocolates in your room. I would highly recommend Mashpi Lodge. It is a special place.

Pros: The property and staff is AMAZING! Exceeded expectations. Marc the General Manager makes you feel at home from Day 1. Juan Carlos is an incredible guide and truly a phenomenal person.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: In the heart of nature with minimal environmental impact. Very, very relaxing. We only had a short stay but the guides and staff made every moment worthwhile. It is an experience we will cherish
Cons: Can’t think of anything!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This is not "just a lodge". It is a sanctuary of peace and nature. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city; no cars, only nature and staff which genuinely love what they do. Projects like Mashpi allow the city slickers to appreciate nature. We loved everything of it. The waterfall treks (Magnolia), the Sky-bike, the Dragon Fly and the wonderful hummingbird station. Thanks Marc , Gonzalo and crew!
Cons: the rain.......

Pros: Beautiful hotel with a beautiful garden. We had a very nice and new bungalow with a comfortable bed and a nice hot tub. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful with good English.
Cons: I had a lot of Mosquito Bites even though I used Insect repellent every night before bed. But that’s something that’s just normal for thy area
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We got upgraded to the superior bungalow which was such a treat - we loved the view from our balcony and especially that we could eat our breakfast (which was included and very nice) out there each morning! David was incredibly helpful from the time I booked the hotel. He was very attentive and pleasant throughout the stay. We really needed to do laundry after our prior travels and there was a service which was very reasonable priced and so easy to get done. Everyone we worked with from the receptionist, David and the other hotel staff were great.
Cons: If there is one thing that could be improved it is the mattress... a little uncomfortable.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Anna and David are extremely helpful and very accommodating. We were arriving a bit earlier than allowed and I emailed David asking if we can come in sooner -it was not a problem at all. The staff is the best we experienced thus far in Ecuador. One staff member in particular made an impression --Moa (spelling?) is a rock star! She even gave us a ride back to the place one day when it was raining super hard and we were caught in town.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful property and very helpful staff. They arranged our transfer from Quito and gave good recommendations for local sights. Great to sit on our balcony with breakfast and watch the hummingbirds zip by. We are vegetarians but their chef made us an excellent meal! It was easy to get to town by taxi and we appreciated the relaxed feeling of being in a beautiful place " away from it all". Don't miss this hotel on your trip to Mindo.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, great location, Nice room with a view. Great to have breakfast on our own balcony at no extra cost .Hummingbird feeders :-)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were staying in Las Terrazas de Dana when ecuador protests began and so we had to stay in Mindo much longer than we've initially planned. We were so lucky to choose Las Terrazas de Dana, as Anna and David (the owners), as well as the other staff, made us feel at home from the very first minute. It was very noticeable that they truely cared that we made the best of our vacation and we are so grateful for that. Anna and David made the extra mile for us, helping us to plan our trip in the light of the temporary road blocks and even to communicate with our other hotels in spanish. We can't recommend this place enough. It is a perfect location managed by people with a huge heart. We truely love you guys! Best regards, Pini & Pazit. Side note to future guests: You must try their Tigrillo and Yuca. They are the best we've had in ecuador.
Cons: nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Las Terrazas de Dana. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff are absolutely amazing!!! They went above and beyond to make our stay a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and plentiful. We had breakfast on the balcony of our room while watching hummingbirds and other birds only a few feet away. The view of the cloud forest from the balcony was absolutely beautiful.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The gardens were fabulous, the pool area was great, breakfast was good and it was lovely watching the birds
Cons: Nothing! The only negative thing I can think of is there was not food left out to attract birds on both of the days we stayed
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place was great. The breakfasts were great. The employees were helpful and very pleasant. The small surrounding garden brought in some of the local birds. The pool was very nice as was the hammock area. The river access was beautiful. The b & b is about a mile from the town on a gravel road, so drive, arrange taxis or do some walking (we had driven).
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Gorgeous setting near river. Amazing garden plants and birds. Breakfast was fantastic.
Cons: Lots of noise from neighbors till we moved to one of the cabins. The pool was really cold.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The family running this place are superb. The breakfast is phenomenal with some of the best fruit you will ever experience. The grounds have access to the local river and the entire place is filled with awesome birds, butterflies, & foliage. There's just enough hot water for a decent shower but don't dally.
Cons: I can't really think of any negatives. I suppose for anyone looking for a long "first world" luxuriating 30 minute hot shower will be disappointed but otherwise this place is wonderful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: FANTASTIC location by the river. Easy walk to downtown. Wonderful pool. Great breakfast. Amazing staff. 5 stars all the way!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Spring for the private bungalow! Amazing. You’ll feel by yourself with a lovely view and hammock/porch to relax and read. The river noises from below are awesome. Staff is helpful (some speak English well too) and the included breakfast is fresh and delicious. (Cooked to order eggs, fresh fruit, fresh bread and fresh juice, and coffee etc) Pool was quite nice. Easy walk to town! We saw birds, gorgeous flowers and butterflies on property. Helped us arrange onward transportation
Cons: Nothing!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was delicious, the staff helpful and polite, the gardens lush, there was an access to a river which you could hear from the rooms, super comfortable beds...it was heaven!!
Cons: Nothing.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We stayed 3 nights in the cabin. The beds in the room and the bathroom with lots of hot water are very comfortable. Hammocks by the cabin are lovely. The staff (a mom and her english speaking daughter) are very pleasant. Breakfasts they served are really big and very tasty. The best thing is the grounds. Gardens are fantastic, very well taken care of. It's a bird and flowers paradise.
Cons: The only negative is the muddy 1 km road to town when it rains too much. And a proper closet would add a lot to the room.

Pros: Great location in the city and the staff very kind and helpful
Cons: Can not think of anything
9.0 Excellent
Cons: There only disappointment was dinner. They had no vegetarian options. They kindly offered to make something but when they served, it was extremely bland pasta and tomato sauce seemingly out of a can. We would have preferred had they said they couldn't serve in the end as the town has very good options. Otherwise it was a great place and their breakfast was excellent. Just a shame they have no vegetarian dishes.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner was very flexible and easy to communicate with. One night there was loud music in the valley (not on the premise) and we asked if we can move -- He moved us to a bigger bungalow on the other side for the same price. The staff is also very nice and helpful --Angelika especially. One night we wanted to stay in and watch a movie, I ask if she can make popcorn and she gladly did and brought it to our bungalow.
Cons: The internet was giving us problems, but I don't know if that is just Ecuador or the place.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: the food, the cabin, the staff, the weather loved it all

Everything was clean, and there are a lot of details and surprises that you'll find when you visit them!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: All the meals were fantastic. Fresh ingredients, home made bread and jam and fresh eggs for breakfast. Very gracious hospitality from all the staff especially Carmen and Ignacio. The gypsy-type caravans are cosy, comfortable and clean, with orchids growing outside the windows. Best of all was the bird viewing in the surrounding cloud forest from the comfort of the common area. It is within walking distance of the butterfly garden, the cable car and the town of Mindo (latter 25 mins). Really special place.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The place is absolutely amazing, the little caravans are beautiful and with all the comforts. It is a bit far from Mindo town but totally worth it! The restaurant is also good with a wooden oven to make pizza!
Cons: Nothing.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice lodge in the cloud forest for a getaway (about 35 minutes from Mindo, for a 25/35 dollars taxi ride). The room was really nice, like a cabin in the tree, with a clean bathroom. The room can get cold, but there's a little heating and extra thick blankets. Lots of humingbirds outside, you're awaken by the sound of the birds. Nice breakfast.
Cons: It's a bit expensive, so we had to keep it to a one night experience after Mindo.
7.1 Good
Pros: It's all about location which is stunning. Fantastic set of trails, abundant birdlife and an olingo make it a must stop over if visiting Mindo and your mad about wildlife. The accommodation is pretty querky and seen better days (quite a bit of noisy DIY going on when we were ther) but absolutely fine. Food is good and setting for the restaurant fab.
Cons: Sadly not good value for money.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Trip to Bellavista from Quito took about 2 hours. Beautiful location surrounded by lush forests. Our room had a sitting area overlooking the forest where we could relax and view the many birds in the forest. Three guided hikes are offered each day for a nominal fee. Our guides were very knowledgable about the flora and fauna of the area. Meals were wonderful and very healthy - more than I could eat. Hummingbirds were all over but packed the feeders. If you want to learn about the cloud forest don't miss a visit to Bellavista!
Cons: Not a thing!
7.1 Good
Pros: The birding and the natural environment were wonderful The guides were excellent
Cons: The property is “rustic”. In spite of having the right clothes we were very cold inside
5.4 Okay
Pros: It had a rustic charm and you truly felt you were in the forest, as completely away from everything down very long bumpy roads in both directions.
Cons: Too expensive for what it was. WiFi was only working in one area which was under construction.
7.1 Good
Pros: Amazing place. A birders/twitchers paradise. We saw some amazing ones.
Cons: Not sure some of the older structures are up to much.
5.4 Okay
Pros: A good place to soak up nature! Every morning you'll wake up to wonderful music of nature, especially the singing of the birds. On a clear day, the view from our room was very nice.
Cons: Food was basic with limited choices and certainly disappointing when taking into account the price. Unless you are an avid birder and keen hiker, there is very little to do in and around the property (or we were not told of any by the staff there). We ended up taking long car rides everyday and paying substantial amounts, as recommended by the staff of the property, to see orchids, butterflies and birds, which was tedious and time wasting.

Pros: The staff were extremely helpful. The room had a lovely balcony with views of the mountains. The house is actually only a very short walk to the centre.
Cons: The curtain was a little bit small for the window so light came in and woke me up early in the morning. Some rooms have balconys but only have views of the road. That would be very disappointing in such a nice place.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owners are very friendly and the guest house is a very nice looking, clean place with a beautiful garden and balconies. It's 5 min walking from the main square on the road to the Tarabita where almost everyone is going to when in Mindo so a great location. The place is surrounded by nice relaxing bird sounds and breakfast was included which was also very nice.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Well located, nice garden, lots of birds and butterflies to spot from your balcony or the porch where you have your breakfast. Shower is also good.
Cons: Somewhat noisy (e.g. guests in the room above you) due to the fact that the building is completely made from wood, but 10pm-7am 'silence rule' has most of that noise covered.
10.0 Excellent

Pros: Location is very good. Close to Mindo and bird watching place San Tadeo. The blinds for early morning moth feed is excellent. Breakfast is good and the staffs are all excellent, especially the front desk woman. She called taxi, checked out if the restaurant at Milpe was open, kept record of my meals so that I do not have to pay each time when I dined. When she found out the restaurant at Milpe was not open, she suggested me to get a sandwich and fruits to bring with me. The trail leads to the river is good for hike. A bird watching tower was being constructed when I was there. It will be a great addition.
Cons: The staffs did not tell me about the early moth feed station when I checked in. The banana feed station does not have much activities.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Second time visiting Ananaw. I love the are and the views~
Cons: Well... i had to call the owner for him to change the gas tank to have hot water. But I understand it was not busy season. He came inmediatly to fix it. Really nice.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The owner of the property picked us up from the bus stop (after we called him) and drove us around town briefly to show us some recommended restaurants and then brought us to the hostel. The room was cute - wood everywhere! The location was nice because it was outside of the main streets so it was quiet, but close enough to easily walk to all the restaurants downtown.
Cons: The shower switched pretty quickly between too hot and too cold. It never stayed at a consistently comfortable temperature. Also, when we first got there, the shower curtain was dirty. We asked the staff and they changed the curtain.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: David, the owner, is very courteous and answered all our questions giving us good advice and tips. Ananaw is a quiet place surrounded by luscious vegetation and close from Mindo. I really enjoyed my stay at Ananaw.
Cons: I am an early bird, so I would have preferred to have breakfast earlier than 8:30 am. On the other hand, the breakfast is fresh and healthy.
7.1 Good
Pros: The room and breakfast in morning
Cons: First impression Small parking lot It seemed like it was under construction
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The bunks beds are a double bed on the bottom and a single bed at the top which makes it comfortable it’s you are a couple or a family. You also have an amazing view of nature through the window.
Cons: It is a 10 minute muddy walk from the center, so I don’t recommended if you have a carry on instead of a backpack and if you don’t have a car. But if you are going for the hikes, I totally recommended since it’s actually on the way to the hikes.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Loved the opportunity to watch a myriad of birds right from our room/balcony. Good restaurant on site and wished that we had used it more.
Cons: It was rather noisy - dogs barking, people partying/talking until the early morning hours. Would be nice to have hot water option at bathroom sink as well.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Bio hostal had very friendly employees and were always happy to help and give information. There was a minor booking problem for whatever reason but they were kind to correct the issue. I'd stay again!!
Cons: There wasn't much that I did not like... Oh, towels needed to be requested I guess but that wasn't a problem.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The people at check in were perfect. The other people on duty were helpful, exceeding my expectations and provided information and help with all my questions. They were extremely patient with my language difficulties
Cons: nothing
6.3 Good
Pros: Great location, okay wifi, good breakfast
Cons: The front desk staff looked like they were about 15 years old and were absolutely useless. They did not speak any English and could not give me any good recommendations for things to do in Mindo. The room was comfortable, but it did not have any toilet paper in it when I checked in. There was also a thick layer of dust covering both my entire room and the hotel, and large spiders everywhere. I told the front desk 4 times that the water jug upstairs was empty and they still did not refill it while I was there. At the end of my stay, I requested to use the free luggage storage. It was a small cupboard in the middle of the reception area out in the open. It had a sign saying "please ask for a lock," and when I asked for a lock he said I couldn't have one. He insisted that I put all my valuables inside this unlocked open cupboard where anyone could walk-in and take them. I told them I was not okay with this, and thankfully they allowed me to keep my belongings in my room (even though I had checked out) for a few extra hours before I left the city.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Beds were ok. The building has some potential.
Cons: This place seriously needs a brush up. Painting is coming of most walls. Floors are so worn that they seem dirty. Unfinished building projects in common areas. We had dirty windows and cockroaches in the room and only hot water once and then for a very short while. A very young guy was looking after the place. I guess we were the only guests. First day a lady came to prepare our breakfast which was ok. The second day the guy did it without much success: cold coffee in Mindo
7.1 Good
Pros: The hostel looks like it could do with a bit of a spring cleaning and coat of paint, but otherwise was great. The WiFi was a bit slow, but it worked fine with a bit of patience. The staff were friendly and made nice breakfast for us every day. (Fried egg, bread roll, fruit, pancake, fruit juice and coffee). It was good that they had free tea and coffee all day, and free drinking water. We kept refilling our water bottles during our stay. The location is great, directly next door to a butterfly / hummingbird sanctuary and small orchid garden. It is easy to walk 2 min down the road to all the main restaurants, and the bank ATM is also about 5min walk away. We were able to walk everywhere, including the Yellow house trails, and even walked to Minjoy park, where we took the chairlift to the top, before then taking the Tarabita across the valley, to visit all the waterfall trails. We enjoyed our stay at Bio Hostel, and all the different species of birds we could see and hear every morning from their viewing deck at the top. There are also a couple of nice hammocks there to relax in.
Cons: It would have been nice if the hummingbird feeders at the hostel had food for the birds....they were always dry.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We loved the rooftop terrace and all the hammocks (best spot for an afternoon nap with my baby!). Breakfast was delicious! Good location on a quiet street just 3 bocks from the main square. The whole town was one of most extranjero friendly places I have ever been! We actually forgot our baby carrier in an unmarked taxi and the next day multiple random people helped us track it down. I was amazed!
Cons: Just a few minor things like we had to ask them to change a few bed sheets when we arrived because they weren't clean, no tp stocked in the room, and they forgot to get the trash from the bathroom when we asked.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: We really appreciated that the owner, AnaLu, was so attentive to all her guests and made us feel very welcome as if we were in her own home. She definitely is passionate about providing a lovely experience for all her guests and she loves what she does. The whole staff in the kitchen were very aware of my egg allergy and made sure that everything they served me was free of eggs and any cross contamination. They were top notch in providing food that was safe for me to eat. We had a lovely time and enjoyed seeing many new varieties of hummingbirds. There is great potential in this resort for having a great time and we would like to see the facilities used even more completely.
Cons: It is noisy as in lots of nature sounds - birds especially - so some may find it hard to sleep due to this unique noise. Also, when some guests are leaving early for tours, they were loud in the hallways, so sleeping can be a bit difficult.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The lodge with its collection of rooms and facilities is well appointed. All is very clean. Our room was a large bungalow and very comfortable and attractive. WiFi is reliable and fast. It is quiet. Analu helped with planning and contracting for guides and transportation to Mindo. Overall it is fair value for the size of the reserve. Breakfast was good and ample. Given that one must drive/taxi to Mindo in order to have any other dining options, taking meals at the lodge is easiest. This is where the greatest fault lies. The menu is unchanging. The manner of preparation is shamefully unskilled. Meats come swimming in sauce. The Caesar salad dressing is fundamentally mayonnaise and drowns the greens that are all but invisible. Come on Analu – ride herd on the kitchen. Food should be honored. Accommodation grade = A. Food service = F.
6.3 Good
Pros: Place was fair, staff were very nice. Really cool being situated directly in the rainforest.
Cons: The room was not very nice and the bed wasn't comfortable.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Many hummingbird feeders. Very accommodating staff, they cook some specialty items for us. Good for vegetarians if you tell them your dietary needs. Near Mindo in case you want to go into town. $3 for a taxi. Trails. They have dehumidifiers to help with the humidity. It is dryer in August.
Cons: Walls are a bit thin and you may here noises when people get up early to go birding

7.1 Good
Pros: Great food, nice place, great staff

9.6 Excellent
Pros: We felt right at home at the Dragonfly Inn. This was my second time staying with them and I was not disappointed. The view from our room was outstanding and the staff were wonderful.
5.4 Okay
Pros: The staff were really helpful and attentive. The room was the perfect size for our family of 4, and breakfast was great.
Cons: The location on the main road is horrible from a noise perspective. We had ear plugs in and an app that played white noise, but it still was hard to avoid hearing the loud dogs barking, the constant traffic on the road. Additionally, the room had little to no ventilation. Our room was upstairs in the front of the property.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: A very comfortable place with lots of wood, friendly and helpful staff, good food, and beautiful location on the river. We loved spending our anniversary here. There were fans if it got warm, and lots of blankets if it was cool. Highly recommended.
Cons: Can’t think of anything I would change.
7.9 Good
Pros: Dragonfly Inn is right on the main street. Close to everything. Great breakfast and staff.
Cons: There is street noise which we expected. One morning there were strong exhaust fumes that were bad. That was the worst thing. Otherwise good!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Host was extremely helpful: recommendations, bus, and spoke english. Perfect location, clean, great food! Best place to stay in Mindo!
7.9 Good
Pros: Only had two hot showers (steady) in Ecuador and this was one! The staff was nice but not quite up to level you expect for such a fancy place (one guy was on top of everything but the woman was kind of lackadaisical). The bed and room were very comfortable and it is close to all the restaurants and shops. The food was outstanding.
Cons: The location. It just wasn’t for me. It’s right on the main drag so it gets very loud at all hours, lots of barking dogs, and the aromas from the nearby restaurants were constant. I went on the recommendation from a fellow traveler and should have done more research so my fault.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff was super friendly. The food was very good but a bit expensive.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Mr. Henry is very friendly and helpful. The location is great, is near to the bus station and restaurants. Good price and convenient for tours
Cons: The bathroom needs maintenance
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect. The rooms are clean, and hot water was easy to find for a shower. The owners are very nice, and helpful. You can book tours right on the property, super convenient. Everything I needed was a block to three blocks away. I spent an extended stay there, and was very happy. Be sure to ask for rooms 1-5, they have the best views of the undeveloped area behind the hostal where no one can see in. I watched all kinds of birds fly thru all thru the day.
Cons: Weekends were very busy, but all of the hotels are busy weekends, so not at all their fault. Anything I needed they helped me with. They even took me on a trip out to the horse hacienda and a dip in the river at their expense. Buena Gente.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location next to the bus terminal, very clean rooms, nice hot shower. It was very quiet during the week. The owners were very nice and made sure I had everything I needed. Close to all the stores and restaurants. Friendly house cat.
Cons: The hired help was useless. Didnt help me with my three bags, just watched me struggle. I had to ask for the wifi password, a towel, toilet paper. I did speak to the owners and let them know that there were several complaints about the employees and that I also had a poor experience with them. The owner promised to make some changes and fix the problem.
7.1 Good
Pros: Great location. Cheap. Henry and Marisol were very welcoming.
Cons: There was a party going on the day we arrived so the noise was above and beyond. Henry did apologise for this and said it was not what normally happened. Although the next night there were people outside our room talking and playing music till gone 4am. But not the fault of the hostel. Also no hot water. Kitchen facilities were not exactly up to standard!

The host - Henry - was very friendly and helpful in organizing activities. My room was comfortable and a nice place to relax. The breakfast was one of the best I've had in my two weeks in Ecuador.

Cons: I was missing the parking lot, you have to love the car out of the property In the street. Nothing happens but I would have liked a specific space for the car
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Casa de Piedra was a lovely place to stay during our time in Mindo. The owner, Henry, went out of his way to answer questions and help us with options for day trips during our stay. Our room, the superior bungalow, was beautiful and inviting. The breakfasts were excellent, with warm fresh breads, dulce de leche spread as well as jams and butter, a choice of eggs or yogurt with granola, and fresh squeezed juice. Our daughter loved petting their two well-behaved and sweet dogs, Sacha and Chimo. The gardens were beautiful and gave us a glimpse of the bird life that Mindo is famous for.
Cons: The major issue we had is that the bungalow, which is a great option for more privacy, is directly attached to an identical bungalow, through a paper-thin wall. The beds in each room actually share that paper-thin wall. We shared the wall with a family for one night, and it was a long night of listening to terrible snoring from the other room. Imagine if a newlywed couple had stayed in that room- it was easy to explain snoring noises to our 8-year old than if we had to explain other nocturnal noises. This really is luck-of-the-draw- the room is lovely, but only if no one is next door.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Our room in the cabana was lovely- kind of rustic/shabby chic with a small stream flowing past it Breakfast was good Location is excellent
Cons: Shower was terrible- electric, poor pressure,tepid at best
