This lovely hotel has kind and accommodating staff. The atmosphere is amazing, with beautiful rooms, and several lounges to relax in. The pools are nice to swim in after a long day of activities in Mindo!

This wonderful lodge is the perfect cloud forest experience, and is run by the most superb manager, Veronica, who was so helpful and delightful to talk to. You have hummingbirds to watch in the grounds as well as some amazing tree fern walks. The food and delicious fruit juices were superb. To bathe in a freshwater pool and see and... More

We had two nights here so that we could experience the cloud forest. It felt as if we were genuinely in a wild paradise surrounded by all the forest wonders (pink bananas, giant heliconia, hummingbirds) yet in very comfortable accommodation. The humidity was much less of an issue than we had expected as Ana Lu has very sensibly organised a... More

Stayed here during July 2015 on a birding trip. The food was wonderful, the bartender on her toes, and the accommodations sweet and roomy. The staff got up extra early to make sure coffee was on and waiting for us at the crack of dawn! It's off the beaten path, but worth the trip! The pool was lovely, too -... More

I visited the lodge and I found out I was the only guest here, big group is showing up tomorrow. Service was excellent and the food was too. Great trails for exploring and bird watching. Highly recommended while in Mindo.

I spent five lovely nights at Septimo Paraiso in June, and hope to return in the future. This is a fantastic place for birders, as the lodge and reserve has an enormous variety of species, there is a whole network of trails on the reserve, and you can sit inside the restaurant eating delicious food and watching a wide range...

This lodge is located in the cloud forest about 2 hours outside Quito. The nearest town (only about 10 square blocks large) is Mindo which you can get to by asking the desk to call a cab. This is a cloud forest so it rains almost every day. The best advice we were given was to do any excursions in... More

Really enjoyed our stay at Septimo Paraiso. Ana is a great hostess - friendly, helpful and seemingly available at all hours. Rooms are comfortable and roomy, nice and clean. Good trials through the reserve which are well signed with an easy to follow map. The area around the main house is really good for birds with hummingbird feeders and also... More
