Located in a beautiful part of Mindo, right next to the river. The rooms are super comfy and clean,and the people who work there are lovely! The food is good,and the social area is great for spending a lazy afternoon.

Mindo Gardens is in a beautiful location in the cloud forest beside a river with fast flowing water. The main building contains the reception and restaurant (indoor and outdoor); the sleeping accommodation for guests is in 3 outbuildings - we had 3 bedrooms in ours. We were impressed by the friendliness of the manager who worked at the reception desk... More

Great food. Really friendly. Our lodge is right by the river. And considering we are in the cloud forrest the place is clean, only very few insects. Hot water, needs a little regulation. Humming birds galore in the garden. Easy to get to. 4 kms from Mindo. Anyone in the village will take you for 4 to 5 $. Get... More

Mindo Gardens is a no brainer if staying in Mindo. It's kind of a haul to reach the enterance. Keep going till the long bumpy rugged road ends. There may be a river/stream to drive through also. Staff was very welcoming and spoke english. Food was plentiful of fresh fruits and typical Ecuadorian taste. Beautiful gardens. Cabanas next to river... More

It is 4 km from Mindo. This is a good not a bad thing. Mindo is best ignored. We took a taxi from historic Quito to the bus station ? Ofelia ($8); then you find the bus to Mindo (there is now a Mindo website) - 2 hrs, $2.5 - then a taxi to Mindo Garden (($4). We stayed put.... More

Wonderful one-night stay at Mindo Gardens in a cabin (2 units) adjacent to the cascading river. Gorgeous views and very charming 2nd floor room. Bring flashlights as its a 5 minute walk from the main lodge after dinner and it's dark! Babbling river provided charming background serenade. Food at restaurant was very good for breakfast and dinner. Hiked steep trails... More

We just spent one night with my family in this paradise, 15 minutes from Mindo town where the food has always been quite acceptable, unfortunately this first time overnight turned out to be not so good. The cabin we were assigned to had three rooms, the rental is per room, not per cabin, it has a sitting room common to... More

Mindo Gardens was absolutely lovely. For an eco-lodge it was very clean and the staff made sure that we were well looked after. The manager Giovanni was really helpful giving us a lot of information when we checked-in and you could tell he wanted to ensure we would make the most of our experience in Mindo. He also spoke great... More

I greatly enjoyed the hummingbirds at the feeders. What made the day, though, was a family of Pale-mandibled Aricaris, toucans of striking coloration. The parents and a juvenile landed in a tree not more than thirty feet from the front entrance. I got good photos, on my one day in this wonderful cloud forest. I love the fresh-squeezed fruit juices,... More
