walkabouttoday (US) – Tripadvisor review
This hotel has only 4 cabins so the attention and service are first rate and outstanding. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable with great views of the valley and mountain range. It lies slightly outside of town so away from the hustle and bustle of Mindo which I loved. The road to the waterfalls is very close and is a good location for birding – particularly closer to the top. We had our own car so were able to drive to town for meals when we wanted or stay at the hotel for meals. The meals here were all good. The hotel is within walking distance of town if you wanted to walk. They only have three or four neighbors further down the dead end road from them so very little traffic along the one lane road fortunately. The property has a small footprint so birding on site is limited. My only nit which I had with every place we stayed in Ecuador is that the water temperature in the shower varies and doesn’t maintain a constant temperature once you find a comfortable setting otherwise you couldn’t ask for a better experience. The hill getting to the rooms is a little steep but any walking in Ecuador is going to involve walking up or down hill. The hotel is also not far from the river which you can hear roaring constantly in the distance.
