No one answer the phone or the email on the website. I did an online reservation and found out that the reservation was not done at all one day before the trip. So the website doesn't work at all. I'm sorry but i wouldn't recommend a place like this at all.

There are a lot of options in Mindo for hotels, hostels and inns. I've stayed in many of them - and highly recommend Mindo Garden. It's a tranquil oasis outside of town - and close to the butterfly habitat. We stayed in the Bird House (casa de aves) - there are three adorable bedrooms (each with its own private bathroom)...

We spend 3 nights here, if you have your own car it is an ideal place to be, far from the noice, good food, even better breakfast, nice birds in the garden, nice people and decent houses, the only thing is that the houses are split and that the walks between them are not very thick (but the water of...

My wife and I spend the final 2 days of our honeymoon here and could not have asked for a better experience. We woke up to hummingbirds outside of our windows, saw many different types of birds on the property, saw an armadillo, and used their private hiking trails across the river. The staff was very helpful in finding hikes,... More

In July this month my wife Shelley and I had an overnight stay at Mindo Garden which was arranged by our host at B&B Tumbaco. Our previous knowledge of the cloud forest in the Mindo area was that it was an adventure sports area and noted for its birdlife, with many species which are not present in the Amazon forests...

Mindo Garden was a wonderful place to stay! First, the location is wonderful, tucked into the jungle. Each room is in a little cabin, with the river just beyond. It is absolutely peaceful to sleep to at night. I will warn, there are lots of bugs outside, but that comes with being in the jungle! The staff were amazingly accomodating.... More

Mindo Gardens is around 20min out of town but worth it for the gorgeous scenery and wildlife. We stayed for 3 nights in a hut alongside the river amongst the beautiful gardens. Walks in the forest directly in and from the property are very enjoyable. We saw hummingbirds and toucans at the lodge. The restaurant food quality is high and... More

Really enjoyed the bungalow in the cloud forest of Mindo. It was a nice distance away from the hustle and bustle, and noise of downtown Mindo, and the walk to the resort was filled with bird sounds, orchids and other assorted flowers, and a sense that you were in a unique place. The property itself is a showcase of flowers... More

Came across this beautiful property and lodge at the end of the road. The owner invited us to stroll the trails on the property. We did and returned for a delicous lunch: trout with lemon butter and vegetables at a reasonable price. Sitting outside next by the gurgling mindo river Was very picturesque!
