The Dragonfly Inn was a welcome sight after a 3 hour bus ride! The rooms were impeccably clean, with fluffy white comforters and calm lighting. The bathrooms had huge showers with hot water and high water pressure. Outside of the rooms were two balconies (we had a corner room) with hammocks--perfect for reading and listening to the nearby river. Our breakfast was more than substantial, with banana pancakes, eggs and toast.

If we every find ourselves in Mindo again, we'll definitely be staying at the Dragonfly!

We stayed one night in Mindo with friends at the Dragonfly Inn, located right next to the river in the center of town. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the restaurant served up great coffee and breakfast, and the staff were attentive and helpful.

Can't say enough good things about this place.

Wonderful B&B in Mindo, Ecuador. From the moment we walked in the door, everything was perfect. We were greeted by the owner Todd and his wife, both very friendly and welcoming. They were not there during our trip, but the staff that works there was amazing and incredibly accomodating. The building itself is beautifully built and everything looks new and expertly handcrafted. The rooms were adorable and we had two balconies...one with a hammock and one with a chair swing. Oh, and the showers were the hottest, best pressured in all of Ecuador. I would recommend this place a hundred times over.

I stayed at the Dragonfly Inn in Mindo one weekend this past November and had a wonderful time. Having done quite a bit of traveling in Ecuador, the Dragonfly Inn was by far the nicest place that I have stayed. The owners, Todd and Lorena, are exceptional hosts, and the inn has a very homey quality to it. The room was beautiful with a terrific bathroom (especially for Ecuador) and there were two balconies off of our room. The in-town location is perfect for access to restaurants and tiendas, and sitting on the pation listening to the river isn't bad, either!

In our recent trip to Ecuador, we knew we wanted to visit the cloudforest in Mindo. The Dragonfly Inn was perfect for our family of four (kids are 14 & 9). Rather than the pricey ecolodges away from town, the Dragonfly Inn was the perfect place -- a gorgeous, really comfortable new hotel, reasonable prices, and right at the edge of town so we could walk to restaurants etc. We were able to call and make our reservation the day before, but as word gets out about this hotel, I would suggest making a reservation earlier if you know your dates. We had a driver to get us to the ziplines and waterfalls, etc. but the tour operators are all right in town. Todd and Lorena are gracious guests, make a great breakfast (and even accomodated us with a very early breakfast so we could get to the ziplines early!). It is situated right along the river, with a great patio to sit and read by during the afternoon rainstorms. We would all highly recommend it and look forward to a return date in the future!

While touring Ecuador earlier this month we decided to visit the Cloud Forest area in Mindo. We were very lucky to stumble on the Dragonfly Inn. The hotel is brand new, has 7 or 8 rooms with private baths, terrific breakfasts prepared by the owner Lorena, and at a cost which is quite reasonable.

The hotel is built out of native Ecuadorean wood which resembles red cedar and has a very nice bar for a drink at night after hiking and exploring the area.

This place is definitely 2 thumbs up. We will return to the Dragonfly Inn in the future.
