Slightly away from the center of town, The Bicok Ecolodge is a heaven of peace. The room was beautiful, breakfast was healthy and Sebastien, the host, really friendly and interesting. I really enjoyed the evenings at the bar with the fire going.

The lodge is beautifully furnished and located in a secluded area in Mindo. We stayed at the 8 person cabin and were only provided with 2 towels and 1 tp which was a bit upsetting. I understand that this is an "eco" lodge but I think limiting the hygiene amenities to that extreme is not necessary. The breakfast was good, however, the ladies making/serving it had an awful attitude. I am a native Spanish speaker and grew up in South America so I am sure this wasn't a "cultural" misinterpretation. My husband has type I diabetes and when we requested if they could make eggs instead of the yogurt, bread and fruits (carb fest) being served they were visibly annoyed and said that they would do it for an extra charge. I understand that eggs might be more expensive than fruit, bread and yogurt but the way this was communicated was extremely rude. During the check out process the host had difficulties charging the credit cards and he implied that our cards were not "working" which was not the case. OverallI, I think this place is beautiful but definitely overpriced. They need to make serious improvements in the service.

Bonjour à vous,
Nous vous remercions pour avoir pris le temps de soumettre un commentaire sur Tripadvisor concernant notre hôtel à Mindo. Nous sommes en mesure de comprendre votre mécontentement malgré nos interrogations. Suite à votre commentaire, nous nous sommes réunis mon équipe et moi-même pour parler de votre commentaire et la surprise fut générale. Je reviens donc vers vous pour vous donnez notre sentiment et le fonctionnement de notre lodge: L'habitation que vous avez loué, et disponible de 3 à 8 personnes effectivement et c'est pour cela que nous mettons systématiquement 4 serviettes de toilettes et un rouleau de papier hygiénique dans l'attente de savoir combien de personnes se présente. La majeur parti du temps, nos hôtes nous réclament ce qui leurs manquent et bien entendu nous faisons le nécessaire. Jusqu’à aujourd'hui vous êtes la seul famille à nous avoir informé, non lors de votre séjour mais après votre séjour, et cela et bien préjudiciable pour vous, comme pour nous. Pour revenir maintenant sur le sujet de l'édulcorant et du petit déjeuner, je vous invite cordialement à vous informez des effets secondaire et néfaste de cette substance de synthèse, car je vous avoue que depuis 18 ans je n'utilise aucun produits pouvant nuire à ma santé ainsi qu'a celle de ma famille. Les petits déjeuner à la Bicok sont réalisés avec des produits maison et issue d'un principe équilibré pour la santé de chacun. Il serait intéressant que vous stipuliez lors de votre arrivée, vos besoins avant que nous réalisions le dit petit-déjeuner, pour aussi faciliter l'organisation de vos besoins, que bien-sur nous pouvons prendre en compte, sans aucun soucie. Ici à Mindo en Équateur, nous jouissons d'un cadre de vie exceptionnel avec ses contrainte. Effectivement certain jours nous ne disposons pas de l'eau courante, de l'électricité, ou de l'internet pour vous facilitez le paiement à titre d'exemple. L'accès à ses services se font petit à petit, et nous pensons que ce facteur doit-être pris en compte, et nous réclamons votre compréhension et votre indulgence à se sujet. Malgré toute ma bonne volonté, je ne suis pas en mesure de gérer ses inconvénients qui nous permettent aussi d'être plus en communications avec la nature que les exigences du monde moderne qui nous entoure. L’Équateur est un pays en plein développement et en devenir, nous en sommes très heureux. Cordialement La Direction

La Bicok in Mindo turned out to be the best getaway for a relaxed weekend. Sebastien, our host is a very friendly person who is always making sure that your stay is at full satisfaction.
Few meters from town, enough to hold back the noise, but close enough to have a lovely walk around the back roads of Ecuador.
By far, the best experience we had in Mindo.

We went there in a motorcycle, there and its ideal for campers and motorcycles.
Thanks Sebastien.

Room tip: Paris Room, awesome!

You have to go there!! It‘s a small paradise at the end of the street - in the middle of green and still very close to the center of the town. The small pool, the cosy atmosphere and the singing birds puts you immediately in a relaxing mood. We finished there our holiday in Ecuador and it was absolutely the best decision we made!! Stylish rooms, great breakfast and very nice stuff!! It‘s a pity that we couldn‘t stay even longer...

A very comfortable, clean and welcoming small hotel with good food prepared by the expatriate French family who runs the place. We found it quite by accident based on its reputation and it exceeded our expectations. It's a relatively small place that some may find austere in furnishing and attitude, but it is a comfortable, attractive and quiet refuse and very much intended to be so. They have a small pool and garden, hammocks and a few campsites. Breakfast is included; multi-course dinner is recommended and must be ordered the day before. The owners are adept at arranging local tours or taxis, or recommending other places to visit or eat. It's an easy five-minute walk to town. The price is economical by Western standards but higher than simpler accommodations in town. We found that we got more than we paid for.
