Our stay at Septimo Paraiso was delightful. Our room was perfect, food was delicious, and the birds in the area were quite beautiful, good variety with feeders to bring them in close, while enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the lodge and its property.

We stayed six nights at Septimo Paraiso while birding in the Mindo region. Our room was outside of the main lodge: it had a very comfortable canopied bed, oriental carpet, a dehumidifier, and a huge bathroom. The food was well prepared, but the highlight was our hostess, Veronica, who took care of our every need. Veronica was up and smiling... More

While no true bird watchers I do love birds, so it was fun to stay in a place with birders. The feeders brought many hummingbirds of all kinds, and we did spot some other birds. One my husband saw was actually considered to be rare there. The room was adequate. I didn't book the full board because I didn't think... More

This lodge is just outside the town of Mindo, 100 miles west of Quito, in an area well-known for bird-watching. The lodge itself owns a large area of cloud forest with trails, and there are many other birding locations nearby. This is a first-class operation, with clean and comfortable rooms and great food. The only slight negative was that our... More

We stayed here 4 nights in August 2015. The lodge was located in a beautiful cloud forest, close to Mindo; the rooms were comfortable and attractive; and the food was delicious - but the most exceptional feature was the remarkable attention we received from the manager, Veronica. We have had many wonderful experiences while traveling, but have never met a... More

We stayed here for three nights in October 2015. The room is spacious and has a very comfortable bed. But the bathroom was lacking in everything. Two bath towels and one hand towel are provided. These were of poor quality and I found myself taking just one shower a day and then a quick stripwash later as the towel stayed... More

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
