“Lovely spot in paradise”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

You are in the midst of the cloud forest of Ecuador. Accommodations are a mix of a few guest houses (many more on the way) and a small high rise, sprrad among the small epicenter of birding and adventure called Mondo. At Bird Planet, you find welcoming, responsive staff with lovely, quaint cabin rooms, nice hot showers, a tres' pretty courtyard with hammocks---you truly are in paradise (for a very reasonable price). And Paty, the nice manager, knows everyone and everything about what's going on in the area. Don't forget to try her palm heart ceviche while you are there.

Paty, the owner, couldn't be a more interesting or helpful woman with great English. She is well-connected in tourism circles and can help arrange ANYTHING--even a car rental in Manta, which is one of the many things she did for us. She also drove us to the airport in Quito (for $80) safely and enjoyably. The little cabanas at Bird Planet are tiny but efficient and cute. My 5 and 7 year old daughters said sleeping in the loft was their favorite thing about hotels in Ecuador. The location is great--in town, but on the edge--and we enjoyed just hanging out on the hammocks and petting Nico, the big, fluffy dog. The only downside of our visit was that a group was using the covered outdoor area near our cabana and their talking and laughing woke us up. Fortunately, they disbanded by 11 pm and we fell back asleep. Bird Planet is a good value hotel with an excellent hostess. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Maybe one further back, away from the common area.
