We came to the Mindo area as part of our first visit to Ecuador. The primary purpose of the trip was bird watching.
I will comment on the notably positive and negative.
Positive: Fabulous grounds with wide variety of birds; up to 30 hummingbird feeders with nonstop action during the daylight hours; quiet; professional and responsive staff; beautiful dining room with good food.
Negative - No hot water to take shower the first night (staff took care of this); power outage (tolerable); during torrential rain water came into room and soaked half of a bed; rooms dated but serviceable.
