From what I gathered, the family has just bought this property but are quite comfortable running it.

The owners are very friendly... More

Great hotel for starting your bird watching trip. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The inside of the hotel was not really our cup of tea, but who goes to Mindo to stay indoors? Especially worthwhile are the birding books in the restaurant. The owner knows a lot about the local birds and speaks English, with the... More

I stayed there with some friends, after some people recommended me the place, we had a good time and the owner took us on a trip to see the local birds, which was a great experience... highly recommended
