What a find. My sister and I were in Mindo for just one night, without a reservation. We were lucky to call La Roulotte and find a train car waiting for us. It's tricky to get a cab out there at night (we were directed down the street to "el gordo" - was he in the cornerstore? The bar?) but worth it. It's so peaceful - close to town but far enough in the forest that you don't hear a thing but nature. The owners are kind and attentive. When we got there, they showed us around, offered us some fresh-from-the-oven bread, and took us frog-hunting around the little lake on the property. We had a fire in the stove in the cool train car, and tucked into our queen-sized bunk beds. Cool. And there's hot water! Breakfast was *delicious* - yogurt and granola, coffee a gringa can love, more fresh bread, eggs. In the morning, one of the owners was going into town and let us hitch a ride to the bus stop outside of town.

If I can manage to get back to Ecuador soon, I will make a special trip to Mindo just to stay here again. Thanks, guys!

I only had the chance to stay at La Roulette one night, but it was great. The staff are super personable and eager to help you with whatever you may need. The cabins are unique and comfortable, with big beds, plenty of blankets, and a stove should it get too chilly at night. The bathroom was great, with hot water and lots of towels. Overall, the setting is excellent; it's quiet (except for the frogs and birds!), peaceful, full of the fauna that Mindo is famous for, etc. The breakfast was delicious as well. Next time I'm in Mindo, I will definitely go back to La Roulotte.

Just came back from 4 wonderful days at La Roulotte. Great personalized service and charming setting. The cabins were comfortable with easy to sleep in with beds which were larger than a double. The food was very good.and the portions large. There are lots of local activities to take advantage of in Mindo and the staff here will help you find whatever activity you are looking for. The large restaurant is a perfect place to sit and watch hummingbirds and see and hear nature at its best.. Ignacio and his staff all went out of their way to make it a special weekend. We will definitely return.

We spent a long weekend at La Roulotte May 24-26, 2013. It is a lovely place set in lush tropical garden with trees, flowers and streams. The cabins are made like wagons converted into comfortalble accomodation with large beds and high quality mattresses. The cabins are rather small but we were perfectly comfortable with our 2 kids (2 and 10 who shared the top bunk). The highlight of the stay were the meals. Breakfast comprised a generous bowl of fruit+granola in yougurt. Alternatively, there was a breakfast of fried (scrambled) eggs + Rösti (a delicious swiss dish to keep you going for the entire day). Coffee was really good even by European standards.
I can also rrcommend dinner which was excellent (the best meal I have had in Ecuador and I am living here for 3 months already).

Above and beyond all of these was the unlimited hospitality of Ignacio the co-owner and Libardo his assistant.

La Roulotte is one of the most charming locations I have ever stayed at, with its incredibly generous and helpful staff and unique but very comfortable caravan-style rooms. The grounds are beautiful, with some small ponds and trails, and the location is nice--not too long of a walk out of town and very peaceful at night. The food at La Roulotte is excellent and the staff certainly make sure there's plenty to go around. In general, all the people who work there are incredibly friendly and helpful, and didn't have a problem with my mostly-butchered Spanish. Around the dining room, it is possible to see a multitude of birds (especially hummingbirds, of course), frogs, squirrels, and other wildlife, and Ignacio, the owner, is more than happy to help guests find interesting species. Overall, I would highly recommend La Roulotte.

La Roulotte is a great place to stay and feel very much at home. Great service and great food in a natural environment. I have been staying in Mindo for many years and this location is perfect for me. It is tranquil, within walking distance to the river and the butterfly habitat. The staff is very friendly and provides good guidance in extra activities. They even had coffee ready very early in the morning before our bird watching trip and breakfast upon our return, all part of the cost of our room. Wonderful!
