Had few days spare on our trip so took the bus from Quito to Mindo. We had not booked anything and decided to wait till we arrived. When driving through the centre of Mindo we spotted this beautiful looking building, as it was pouring of rain when we arrived we went back to this place for a beer. While looking... More

This hotel is right in the center of town. Walking distance to great food, bird watching and hiking. The rooms are comfortable, and the wifi works. The price is crazy low and the hotel is spotless. The staff is excellent. The owners were out of town when we stayed and I can say not one employee slacked off. In fact... More

I absolutely loved staying at the Dragonfly Inn! I was in Ecuador for a study abroad and this was my favorite place I stayed! Ingo is absolutely wonderful and so accommodating and the property is beautiful!

Dragonfly inn is a lovely place, clean room, great shower, very comfortable bed and very reasonable prices. The people that say Ingo is rude misunderstand his very dry sense of humour. He is super helpful and gave us good advice about where to visit in Mindo. The team seem nice and the waiter is really friendly and smiles a lot.... More

We stayed at Dragonfly Inn for 3 nights in April 2016. We stayed in room 1 overlooking the nice view at the back, with a nice balcony over the side street. We enjoyed our stay, nice room, great view from the window (saw Toucans in the trees behind), nice to hear the sounds of the river too. Breakfast was a... More

Stayed here with my family (wife + two young kids aged 7&8) at the beginning of April and we had a great time. Loved Mindo and this place is in a great location, clean rooms and excellent food. Can't ask for more. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again if & when we return to Mindo.

This B&B is a mixture of pro's and cons. Personally, I would not stay there again. The convenience of being central and the niceness of the building did not outweigh the noisiness and stuffiness of the room, the personality of the proprietor, and the fact that there was little local wildlife on site compared to some other lodging in town....

We stayed at the Dragonfly Inn in September 2015 and loved it. If we are ever back in Mindo, we would definitely stay there again.

Our room also had a small balcony with a hammock chair overlooking the stream and... More

Everything exceeded our expectations. From the breautiful patio overlooking the river, the sound of the rushing water, clean room with a balcony overlooking the river. 1 block from the bus station. We had one night in Mindo, so we were glad we stayed here.

We stayed at this hotel for one night and mostly enjoyed our stay. The place was mostly clean, nice on the eyes and, as others have already written, it is a nice location right above a rushing creek. The breakfast was good, too. It is on a busy street and it got very noisy through the night. It should get... More
