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...

In July I stayed at Septimo Paraiso as part of a group of birders in the Ecuadorian cloud forest. The experience was enthralling. First the birding. The grounds of the property itself contains numerous sought after birds. Over a dozen different hummingbird species were observed, some in the dozens of each species. Tanagers, hawks, guan barbet and many other species... More

This hotel is more of a bird watchers lodge than a hotel and it is true some rooms smell a bit damp ( but you are in the middle of a cloud forest!) We are not bird-watchers but soon became enthralled and were happy to get up at 4.30 along with everyone else in the place. It is worth staying... More

I was recommended this hotel by some friends. It is a unique place, located right in the middle of the cloud forest...it is a mystic place, the clouds surround it late afternoon. The location is impressive, the trees have ground around it so basically you see it when you bump into it! My room was very nice, decorated in white... More
