We stayed two great nights at the Dragonfly Inn. Easy check in. Spent my first hour or so on a hammock overlooking the little creek that runs behind the place watching hummingbirds and butterflies go by. Ingo and his wife are very friendly and knowledgeable. Rooms are comfortable. No TV but the sounds of the creek will send you off... More

We booked this Inn last minute and were very happy with it. The rooms are very nice and clean and the beds are great! The Inn is quiet and homey. The restaurant attached to the hotel has great food and my friend and I enjoyed our nights drinking tea there after hours. The Inn is very close to many great... More

Don't hesitate to book this little hotel. Great value, organised, and very clean...it's a gem! The managers Ingo and his lovely wife are terrific, and you couldn't hope for a better spot to enjoy this rustic, vibrant little village.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our second trip to Mindo as we'd heard good things about it, but we were thoroughly disappointed. The room was tiny, as was the bed, and was so noisy. There was noise from the street, anytime a car goes by it really echoes. And more than that, the doorway to the rest of... More

Hello world. No word when you were here-weird! I am so glad i have told you, knowing you wanted peace and quiet, to take another room and especially not come on a holiday weekend, as it will be loud and full in Mindo - as on all three holiday weekends in Mindo. The rest i will leave un-commented! in case... More

Dragonfly Inn has beautiful rooms, and amazing location on a small stream. Prices are not cheap but reasonable to the value of the rooms and atmosphere. The owner ("Gringo Alto") is very helpful with the attractions around, and speaks various languages. Mindo is a must on travelers journey in Ecuador.

We recently returned from a three week trip to Ecuador, including two days in Mindo. While there, we stayed at the Dragonfly Inn and had a wonderful time. Everything at the inn really starts with Ingo - he greeted us upon arrival, helped us arrange our activities (birding, zip-lining, and hiking at the Yellow House), made other recommendations around town,...

This hotel is perfect for couples or friends visiting Mindo. The rooms are cozy and have small balconies to enjoy the mountain views. The staff is terrific. The owners, Ingo and Jenny, are extremely helpful. They speak many languages (Spanish, English, German...) so communicating is simple. The restaurant is reasonably priced and the food is terrific. There's a great little... More
