The good: The staff was very nice and helpful. The lodging is centrally located on the main street in Mindo, making it easy to access all the attractions and restaurants. The food was good, although the lunch was overpriced.

The bad: No hot water for the showers, the pool is covered and doesn't get heated by the sun, making it very cold, and the cabins are very small. They advertise breakfast as being served from 8-10, but we waited until almost 9am for our breakfast our first morning there, despite being in the dining room at 8am. The windows in our cabin would not close, although the staff finally did fix them when we pursued the topic. This is especially important because in April there was an incident in Mindo where two tourists were attacked by a man who came into their cabin through the bedroom window.

The ugly: We got locked out of the hotel one evening. We left around 6pm for dinner and returned at 8. The staff knew we were staying another night, and even greeted us on the street as we walked to a restaurant for dinner. When we returned at 8, the hotel was locked, they didn't answer when we rang the bell, nor did they answer any of the 4 phone numbers they left. Everything in the town was closing up, and there we were left on the street alone. We eventually found another hotel that would accommodate us, but at 9pm we decided to give Bird Planet one last chance and finally they opened the doors. The owners explained they had gone out. This is, in my opinion, unacceptable and for this reason I cannot recommend anyone staying here.

We stayed there for about four nights with four different families. Patty and her partner Keith try real hard to make this place run well. They have many different kinds of accommodations (hostel bunks, private cabins, etc.). Cabins are cozy and small. There is a small cold pool and a hot tub that isn't quite hot or filled to the top. This place lacks a little professionalism and cleanliness. Not a bad place to stay but not luxurious either! My friends had less favorable experiences there (being charged with extra towel usage, showers that run hot/cold.)

The rooms are tiny, requiring climbing over the bed to reach the bath. You would have to know the other three people well to stay 4 to a cabin. They are also dirty, particularly the bathroom. The bedding smells musty and was gritty. The pool area is unusable, but attractive. Food was ok. I have stayed in many cheap places in Ecuador and in Mindo, but this is the worst of them. For slightly more money, I think you could do much better across the street or many places in town.
That said, the owner was very nice and accommodating, including arranging for activities.
