Adventure traveling and came into town on the bus and noticed the Dragonfly Inn as we passed by. We were approached by about 3 or 4 folks when we got off the bus offering rooms but the Dragonfly just looked like a place we needed to be. Got a preview of our room complete with small balcony, hammock and separate... More

Dragonfly Inn: right as you enter Mindo, on the river...what an excellent location. A beautiful wooden building, comfortable rooms, hammocks in every little balcony, a hearty breakfast is not all...the information and guidance about Mindo they provide is very very good.They recommend the best tours, the best trails. Ingo & Genny are the ideal hosts...all that a traveler can look... More

We had a 3 night stay in Mindo. We found the accommodation at Dragonfly Inn, clean comfortable and very relaxing. We also ate there a few times and the meals were very good and great value. The owner was very helpful and gave a number of really good suggestions. A previous comment mentioned the owner being obnoxious, not at all.... More

Pros: I stayed here with a friend and we loved that there were balconies with hammocks to relax and look at the view of the mountains. The room was very clean and there was warm water. There was also complimentary breakfast. Cons: the walls are very thin so it sounds like someone is walking around in your room but they're... More

Hello A. and friend. Lets get rid of some myths first: Ecuador has no glas-cable -internet-infrastructure. Internet is slow (max 2mb in Mindo) and due to overland cables and bad weathers often affected. Routers available for wifi here in ecuador support n - not g standard, which is much more reliable. Welcome to a 2.5 world country. But i understand,... More

Stayed here after a not great experience in another popular hostel the first night. Loved this spot and the breakfast was best we've had in a while. Good home brewed beer and helpful owners. Worth the extra $10 you pay here as you get an excellent breakfast.

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 ten year old kids) spent a long weekend in Mindo at the Dragonfly Inn and definitely recommend it. The rooms were clean and simple (which we like). We loved the sound of the creek and the hammock. Ingo the owner was present and helpful: he connected us up with a great birding guide... More

I've stayed at a few locations in Mindo in my time here, too bad I didn't find this place earlier. Dragonfly is above and beyond the best in terms of quality of food and service, cleanliness and location. It's situated right on the Mindo River at the beginning of town, so everything is close by but you have the beautiful... More

Really good location beside the river that puts you right to sleep! Well at least our room at the big window facing the river, I'm pretty sure some of the rooms face the street. The beds were comfy and the place has good hot-water showers. Wifi only works in the lobby.
