As a woodworker the second thing I noticed about this beautiful inn was the wonderful craftsmanship and the gorgeous wood used in the construction. The first thing we noticed was the friendly, helpful manager and staff. They immediately made us feel so comfortable. The room was spotless and the restaurant was the perfect spot for an evening brew. This little... More

Ingo, the manager, goes above and beyond the call of duty, as to helpfulness and knowledge of the area. Dragonfly is a beautiful facility. We had an unfortunate experience with shady characters and Ingo rectified the situation with the greatest of expertise.

Hi to Texas! We are glad you liked it with us, even though there was the shady situation. The "shades" are caught and brought to justice. How good is that. Come back soon. More

This is a very nice property with a convenient location, but, I honestly would have rather stayed elsewhere due to service that I received from the owner. He seemed to be far more interested in collecting his payment than offering to assist me with my questions about activities in the area. He couldn't even be bothered to give me a... More

Hm - this is a difficult one to answer to. Lets start with something that has been said in thousands of replies to not so good references due to not so happy guests: it would have been great if you had said something at the time you were feeling your needs were not met - i am sure things could...

Most comfortable beds we've had in SA in 3.5 months. Clean towels and sheets every day, with a chocolate on our beds when we returned home from long days out hiking. Perfect showers- hot and with great pressure. Wifi did not work at all however. The breakfast was fresh and simple- fruit salad, fresh juice, hot bread rolls and scrambled... More

Thanks for the nice words. Glad you liked it. Unfortunately the WiFi technique is not so developed here in Ecuador as you know it from first world countries, but now it works reliable in the restaurant and the public areas. Come back soon! WE ARE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT SINCE 1ST OF AUGUST. More

Our son came to visit us in Ecuador and Mindo was a must-see stop on our agenda. We opted to stay at the Dragonfly Inn, a small hotel and Restaurant on the main drag in Mindo. It is very well maintained. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had a triple room, which was two bedrooms with a shared... More

We arrived mid afternoon in Mindo after a long drive from the coast. This place was an oasis!! Situated right next to a roaring river, with views of the entire town, this is definitely a home away from home. My room had a view of the city, and every night I sat on my balcony and watched the town come... More

We originally booked two rooms, a triple and a quadruple, with prices paid per person. The hotel has two floors with lodging, with... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in April and could not have been happier with the room (#6) which is facing the river and has a balcony with a hammock. We were content just having a drink on the balcony on our second night and taking in the view. The food at the restaurant was... More

Beautiful clean hotel right in town and on the river. Terrific staff, very comfortable. A little noisy because it is right on the street. Food in the restaurant was good and offered delicious vegetarian options. We had actually planned on staying elsewhere, but that place didn't work out and we happened upon this place and couldn't have been happier.
