Steven Diprose, (GB) – Booking.com review
David, Marlon and the team at Las Terrazas de Dana made our the night stay in Mindo incredible and we can’t thank them enough for everything during our stay. The breakfasts were excellent and we recommend the Tigrillo, a local dish of fried plantain, cheese and onion, topped with a fried egg. The fresh juices are delicious and the code strong and tasty without being bitter. The evening meals were also excellent with soups and salads to start, and various meat dishes with the menu changing every day. Their sangria is excellent, as are their hone made caiprinhas ‘de Mindo’. The bungalows, of which there are only 4, are elegantly appointed with incredible views out over the cloud forest. There is netting over the windows that open, and leaving then open lets you wake up to the sound of the birds and the nearby river – literally nothing else. The guys will serve breakfast on your balcony if you request; eating with hummingbirds feeding in the adjacent bushes is an incredible privilege. There is a TV in the room, but we didn’t even turn it on. There is a Jacuzzi in the bathroom which was excellent to relax in after a long morning of birding (which they will arrange for you) and afternoon of walking around the nearby waterfalls. David or Marlon will drive you to the various attractions if their 4×4 is not already in use, or call you a taxi otherwise. We’ve literally nothing bad to say about this place, we loved every minute of our stay, and of Mindo in general. Thanks so much.
