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

I visited Hosteria Septima Paraiso as part of a birding tour. The staff was warm and friendly, the rooms were well kept and the food was good. There were several of our group who were vegetarians and the staff worked hard to accommodate us. The staff was also very flexible about getting us breakfast for our early morning departures. The...

We should had done our research a little better, we fell into what the web page says about this place and booked on our own in spite of having a big travel company organizing the rest of our Equador adventure. When we arrived everything looked ok, we were tired so we had some soup which I have to say was... More

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
