Been visiting this place for years; always friendly reception. Spacious rooms a great plus. Food is very good and portions are ample. The owner of Septimo Paraiso, Ana Lucia, is a stickler for excellence in service and I always am thankful for that. Veronica was the host while I was visiting this time and she is a welcoming host with... More

My husband and I and our 13 year old daughter stayed here for 3 nights. The Manager, Ana Lucia, set up tours for us to do each day, which was great. There is a lot to do in the area, from bird watching to a chocolate tour. The hotel is really nice, in a rustic way. There are lots of... More

We truly enjoyed this beautiful sanctuary in Mindo. It is off the beaten path, so it is very quiet and peaceful. It is also environmentally friendly and has the type of landscaping you dream about! There is a heated pool under a canopy which was perfect after a day of hiking, and also a jacuzzi. Also, the on-site restaurant serves... More

My wife and I were privileged to spend 4 nights at Septimo Paraiso with a birding tour group in August, 2014. Its location made it convenient to many of the favorite birding sites in the Mindo area. The hotel was clean, quiet, safe, and we were treated as family from the moment we arrived until our departure 4 days later.... More

Thank you very for your outstanding service and help! A really nice place in the middle of a beautiful cloud forest. Really good and helpful staff! The hostess, Ann, did an outstanding job in helping me retrieve my lost camera! Service out of the ordinary! Thank you! Regards, Jan Erik with family

We spent 3 nights here as part of a Galapagos / Ecuador tour. This rustic, dark timber building could have been drab with different management, but the staff made very attractive, comfortable and as welcoming as possible. Our large bedroom room 3, had 2 comfortable double beds decorated with white drapes and lots of cushions, which softened the affect of... More

I stayed for two nights when I was traveling the North West with Tropical Herping. The grounds are awesome and the service is great. I really enjoyed the meals and the room was comfortable and clean. The wifi was great so I could check in with my wife to let her know I was ok. If you're a birder the... More

A mountain inn specializing in birding. Has Wi-Fi and satellite TV in the upstairs lounge. The rooms are excellent and spacious. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The food was very good, but was topped by the fare at Cabanas San Isidro. The price for Wine and laundry was a a bit steep compared to other lodges, but that... More

As a small group of birders we relied on the Septimo Paraiso inn owner to arrange for our guide and driver for three days in the Mindo area. No detail was missed, and the accommodations were rustic and perfectly in character for a mountain inn. High marks for food, comfortable sleep, and spacious rooms. The owner creates a friendly and...

I stayed here for four nights as part of a BirdQuest bird tour, so our use of the hotel was limited to mostly night time. The reception and dining room staff were friendly and helpful (there were problems with wi-fi that week). The owner made a real effort to help people enjoy their stay - I would be very happy...
