Set in the Cloud Forest near Mindo, the surroundings couldn't be more beautiful. The facilities are excellent and the service was simply outstanding. With hiking trails, two swimming pools, and several secluded areas to view the wildlife, there is plenty to do and places to relax. We stayed for two nights and three days and the food was incredible...every meal... More

This hotel was amazing with pools, covered walkways, numerous sitting and reading areas, and a game room. On top of all the great food and welcoming staff there were the BIRDS. Hummingbird feeders and platform feeders made it hard to leave the perimeter of the main building, but the trails were wonderful, well maintained - even during hard rains -... More

Our stay at Septimo Paraiso was delightful. Our room was perfect, food was delicious, and the birds in the area were quite beautiful, good variety with feeders to bring them in close, while enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the lodge and its property.

We stayed six nights at Septimo Paraiso while birding in the Mindo region. Our room was outside of the main lodge: it had a very comfortable canopied bed, oriental carpet, a dehumidifier, and a huge bathroom. The food was well prepared, but the highlight was our hostess, Veronica, who took care of our every need. Veronica was up and smiling... More

While no true bird watchers I do love birds, so it was fun to stay in a place with birders. The feeders brought many hummingbirds of all kinds, and we did spot some other birds. One my husband saw was actually considered to be rare there. The room was adequate. I didn't book the full board because I didn't think... More

This lodge is just outside the town of Mindo, 100 miles west of Quito, in an area well-known for bird-watching. The lodge itself owns a large area of cloud forest with trails, and there are many other birding locations nearby. This is a first-class operation, with clean and comfortable rooms and great food. The only slight negative was that our... More
