“Fun at La Roulotte”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stayed at La Roulotte along with another couple. We each had our own little gypsy caravan, with double bunk bed, nice bathroom, in a beautiful setting. We loved this place. Very close to downtown Mindo, yet out in the wilds. The restaurant was excellent. Fabulous breakfast every morning and wonderful dinners. Ignacio and Ribardo, staff at Roulotte were both wonderful. We loved the casual informality of La Roulotte. It was sort of like a camp ground. We were able to walk into town and to the Butterfly Sanctuary. We also went on a birding tour. The hotel recommended a terrific bird guide, Julia Patino, who took the four of us on a wonderful walking tour near the hotel. None of us had ever done this before and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Mindo. We highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

My wife and I spent a fantastic week here. We had a delicious breakfast each morning whilst watching the humming birds from the restaurant. Ignacio and Ribardo were wonderful hosts and we were sad to leave such a beautiful place after becoming good friends with them.
I would recommend La Roulette to anyone who goes to Mindo; you will not be disappointed.

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.
