The inn is very clean and helpful friendly staff with some English. The breakfast was good. Our room was a little dark because of all the wood and poor lighting. But we enjoyed the little balcony above the river with the hummingbird feeders. We did have problems getting hot water but overall recommended.

The rooms are very nice and the location is great. It positions itself as slightly up market and for that I was expecting a little better service. The staff was not able to tell me details about mindo tours and directed me to the information centers of the town where no one really speaks English. The wifi was turned off at night (theres no one on the premises after 8ish) and password changed for it which resulted in my not having email access and missing the birding tour for my only morning. Having said that, it's clean, breakfast and rooms are very good. Bathrooms are small and slightly dark.

We stayed 3 nights at the DragonFly Inn and had an amazing time. Mindo is an extremely chilled out, very relaxed place to visit. Was nice to escape the buzz of Quito.
The Dragonfly Inn is located right in the middle of town, and has a great little restaurant and terrace which has loads of Hummingbirds buzzing around. It's right next to a stream.

Our room had a private bathroom and two balconies with a hammock.

The only reason that I wouldn't give it 5*'s is because our room was on the street which was a bit noisy at night (although we were given the option to have a quieter room without a balcony), and I had to have a cold shower on one of the days, although on the other night the water was very hot.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street are a bit quieter, but having said that, it's quite nice to have a st...

Just perfect for a tranquil stay in Mindo (and that's what Mindo is all about). A small, comfortable inn conveniently located in the center of town. Beautiful wood construction gives it a very warm feeling. Clean rooms and comfortable bedding.

A nice common area/restaurant with good food and a small bar. Breakfast with bread, eggs, juices, fruit and very good coffee was included. The fruit was all peeled, which makes it safe for those of us who need to be careful about local food ... a very nice touch that shows the staff is paying attention to food safety.

Staff was excellent. We arrived early in the day. There was no problem leaving our bags until check in time later in the day.

We stayed in the room with a queen bed and a bunk with two twins in the middle floor. A wonderful room that included a small balcony with hammock overlooking the stream and a tree full of hummingbirds.

The reservation process was very informal. Just a quick call and a first name. I was a bit worried about this at first - being used to 15 digit confirmation numbers ;) - but it worked out just fine.

Highly recommended.

My stay at the Dragonfly Inn was perfect...
Sounds of the river lulled me to sleep at night and when I awoke, a hot breakfast with eggs, fruit , juice and delicious coffee was served.The English speaking staff, especially Angie , couldn't have been more attentive and accommodating. I stayed on the second floor for my first night and the room included an attached deck with a hammock that overlooked the river and the hummingbird feeders...very nice and relaxing.The second night I stayed in room 7 on the 3rd floor. It had a wall of glass that looked out over the river and adjoined the small T.V. room. Room 7 was my favorite...cozy, very quiet and spectacular views. The Inn's restaurant is THE best in town. I recommend the house specialty: local trout with seafood sauce - no bones and very tasty- or the fajitas which were excellent.

The Dragonfly Inn was a great Inn for our recent trip to Mindo. Conveniently located in near the village center, many activities were easily accessible including food options, a butterfly garden, bird watching, hiking, and local galleries. We took 3 rooms which resulted in us having the top floor to ourselves, including our own sitting room. The rooms were clean and comfortable and included a small balcony which was well used. The food was quite good and the service was impeccable. The deck off the dining area provided wonderful hummingbird watching and the bubbling brook provided a delight for the ears.

We took three rooms for a family trip to Mindo this week and Dragonfly was the perfect choice. We had all three rooms on the top floor which has a small living room. Our favorite room was in the back overlooking the river. The included breakfasts were very good (fresh ground coffee, fruit salad, eggs and bread.) We enjoyed the trout lunch and fajitas also. The Inn is right in town which is where we wanted to be. If you want to be out of town in the forest choose another location. But it was an easy walk to forest trails from town and we did see some nice birds right from our room window. The Dragonfly Inn is a great value.
