Close to town, but secluded and quiet. It is a scenic easy walk or taxi ride from the hotel to the butterfly park, and a little further beyond is the tram ride to the waterfall hikes. Fantastic botanical gardens and pool right on the hotel grounds. Views from upstairs room windows lookover lush treetops full of fruits and flowers. Upstairs... More

Great place to stay, great area to explore! I spent six nights here last week, and I plan to return soon. The property itself is about an 8-minute walk out of town, in a beautiful location with lots of trees, flowers, butterflies, and birds. I had an opportunity to view the rooms, which were beautiful and very clean, but as... More

Mindo Real is located about 500 meters up a gravel road from the quaint town of Mindo. We stayed there for a single night in mid-June. Our room was Cabana 11, a separate cabin near the entrance to the resort. The cabin was rustic but very clean. However, what is important to consider is that the reason for staying here... More

We loved Mindo, and especially having Mindo Real as our "home"! Fabulous breakfast and if you request ahead of time, she will cook dinner-fresh trout, yum! Comfortable rooms, nothing fancy, and very helpful and accommodating owner, we will go back! The flowers surrounding the living accommodations are spectacular. Just remember bug spray for the whole Mindo area.

Mindo Real is surrounded by gorgeous Cloud Forest just a 10 minute walk from Mindo, Ecuador. Our manager, Edith, found us the perfect rooms to accommodate our party of 7. The rooms were comfortable and overlooked the woods where gorgeous flowers bloomed and birds perched. There are two person bungalows for the romantic getaway. Our breakfasts were delicious and Edith... More

My friend and I stayed here for the weekend and it was great. The terrain is really beautiful and the hummingbirds are everywhere. The owner is a really nice lady, who is very helpful. Everything was very very clean, even the toilets by the pool! Breakfast was amazing with freshly pressed juice and fruit, eggs. Really great and I will... More

My son and I stayed here for three nights in July 2014. It is a lovely and expansive property with river frontage in the rear. The grounds are nicely landscaped and rich in colorful birds and butterflies. Relaxing by the swimming pool was heavenly. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the shower was most efficient with ample hot water.... More

My daughter and I stayed 4 nignts in a cabin set in beautiful gardens. MIndo Real is a short walk from the town so there was no street noise which made for a very peaceful stay. We enjoyed the easy walk each day and just needed a torch for the driveway after dark as the road has lighting. The pool... More

This accommodation offers everything special. Peace and tranquility an easy 10 minute walk into the little town of Mindo. Pleasant very clean rooms. A lovely pool surrounded by the most beautiful private gardens we've seen in South America, and full of charming hummingbirds. The hosts are very kind, efficient and helpful. Breakfast an Ecuadorian treat.
