We booked a tree house with a jacuzzi and that is what we got, but it was fairly basic. This place is more an all-inclusive resort for a weekend get away from Quito than a place to stay while visiting Mindo and surrounds. On the Sunday when we arrived it was very busy and the pools and jacuzzis were all... More

First off, the good- and honestly, it was enough to overshadow all of the small details we didn't love. The reception staff was great- helpful and friendly. The grounds are lush and beautiful. We stayed in a treehouse room with a jacuzzi tub, and it was such a nice experience!! A great way to relax after long hikes during the... More

We just ended our three and a half day vacation in Mindo and we miss it already! This resort is complete with lodging, a restaurant, pools, jacuzzis, steam room and activities. If you wanted, you would never need to leave the resort, but then you would miss out on the atmosphere of the town of Mindo. We stayed in a... More

This is a fantastic resort with tons of activities! We stayed in a cabin room (although next time I would love to try a treehouse!). It was very clean and comfortable. The room came with a twin bed, a double bed, and a private bathroom with a fancy shower system. The restaurant at the hotel was quite good. The breakfast... More

This is a beautiful place! We stayed only 1 night, I feel asleep listening to the sound of water running in the river below! The staff is wonderful & and responsive to all our needs. We stayed in the tree house with the jacuzzi, wonderful room! I wish I had more time & would have stayed longer!

My daughter and I really enjoyed staying in the Hosteria El Carmelo in August, 2013. It was a great place. The treehouse room that we stayed in was a lot of fun and very memorable. We loved the ziplining. After trying the 9 exciting zipline cables in the hotel for $10 per person, it inspired us to do one of... More

We were in El Carmelo Hosteria this past week. We had a wonderful time. Our room was one of the rooms in a tree. Although it was high in the tree, it was comfortable and roomy with a clean bathroom and warm water to shower. In the morning, we did not need to get out of the room to see... More

For being honest, the place is awesome! One thing that is not very nice is that the installations, i mean the pool, the restaurant, the hydro, are open just until 9pm. The restaurant food is not goof enough, i mean it's ok

Amenities were amazing.. I'd like a little more variety on the food. Canopy available at the hotel which is awesome and comfortable. Do NOT go tubing in the Mindo River unless you're an extreme sports kinda person. EXCELLENT service by the kitchen and amenities staff (Guido, Agustin, Lucas).
