The staff were excellent and super friendly. They drove us to the town at night free of charge.The breakfast was good with lots of choice. They even allowed friends that were staying at another hostel to come and enjoy the pool. The pool is beautiful. The showers are powerful and warm and the beds are really comfy. The location is...

We were recently in Mindo and decided to change our lodgings after the first night. We found Mindo Real after checking out a few places. It is a one of a kind place.

The owners let us feel like home. The breakfast included and is delicious with a little taste of Ecuadorian cuisine. They have a nice and clean pool which my kids love. They have walk trails to lead you to the river. You could listen the birds while you are sleeping in a nicest Cabin. Near to the town and nicest... More

Nice location, nice pool. We had a nice stay. The breakfast was good and the employees were friendly. I will return maybe this weekend to camp. There is also a camping area down by the river. They have a nice green house.

Close to town, but secluded and quiet. It is a scenic easy walk or taxi ride from the hotel to the butterfly park, and a little further beyond is the tram ride to the waterfall hikes. Fantastic botanical gardens and pool right on the hotel grounds. Views from upstairs room windows lookover lush treetops full of fruits and flowers. Upstairs... More

Great place to stay, great area to explore! I spent six nights here last week, and I plan to return soon. The property itself is about an 8-minute walk out of town, in a beautiful location with lots of trees, flowers, butterflies, and birds. I had an opportunity to view the rooms, which were beautiful and very clean, but as... More

Mindo Real is located about 500 meters up a gravel road from the quaint town of Mindo. We stayed there for a single night in mid-June. Our room was Cabana 11, a separate cabin near the entrance to the resort. The cabin was rustic but very clean. However, what is important to consider is that the reason for staying here... More

We loved Mindo, and especially having Mindo Real as our "home"! Fabulous breakfast and if you request ahead of time, she will cook dinner-fresh trout, yum! Comfortable rooms, nothing fancy, and very helpful and accommodating owner, we will go back! The flowers surrounding the living accommodations are spectacular. Just remember bug spray for the whole Mindo area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located nearby the river, Mindo Real is a peaceful guesthouse in a superb setting, with abundant flowers and trees which attract numerous local birds and butterflies. An 8-minute walk from town, Mindo Real is far enough away to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while close enough to stock up on supplies or pick up a few souvenirs if desired. We have private rooms, cabanas, and a camping area right beside the river for those who have their own tents. Every room has its own bathroom and cable television, and a swimming pool is available for client use. Breakfast is included with all room and cabana rentals, and is available for an extra cost for campers. The camping area includes shower and bathroom facilities, running water, lights, and a pavilion area with picnic tables. Free wifi is available in the restaurant and main guesthouse areas. ... more   less
