Septimo Paraiso, near Mindo, was not really my idea of “seventh heaven”. It is quite a nice “eco lodge” but lacks many things. Firstly, on the plus side: It is large; it has hummingbirds very close to the main building, the bed was comfortable with lots of pillows and cushions.

Response from Ana Lucia G, Propietario at Hosteria Septimo Paraiso
Responded 4 Dec 2018
Septimo is far from every thing, 3 km away for anyone...that it its charm...we are located in the middle of the Cloud Forest of the Valley of Mindo, it is the only hotel that has that privilege. 6.30 breakfast is quite late for birdwatchers and nature lovers...most of our guest have breakfast a 5 am to have time to enjoy the rest of the day in the forest and observing nature (sorry if they disturbed you). For the description you are giving to us it seems you were in room 8 (please look at images at our website)… it is a lovely 30 m2 room with an antique closet, a wardrove and a queen size bed and 3 lamps plus 3 celling lights, decorated with a English blue and white fabric... with a good view of the hummingbird feeders...this room is always wanted by our clients... Well damp?? maybe you are confusion dampness with humidity...Mindo has 95% humidity specially in the forest it is what makes the forest so amazing and fauna thrive. We always offer extra banquets for passengers... Mindo has an average temperature of 16°C so thick blankets are never required (however I will make a note of this comment and ensure to have a couple for future guests). Also, the lodge offer 7 living rooms with desks and sitting areas with wifi...exploring important at new destinations. The art work was made by an Italian artist "Castello" painted on recycled cardboard and have been part of the décor of the lodge from the beginning...I am sorry it is not to your liking and that you prefer photos. It is important to realize the important of EXCESS.. . At El Septimo we make effort to deal with this very matter... the bathmats, all of them, measure 50 x 40 cm enough for wet feet....most of clients agree with this. In a world of excess it is important to realize what is important. We have good Wifi most of the time, but when the cloud come the internet becomes quite slow...not much we can do about this since we are in a very remote area and yet we do try to offer this service. Daily menus include fresh made soup with home baked bread, main course with rice meat salad and potatoes, dessert, natural juice (as much as you like) plus tea or coffee, the cost is US$23+22% per person (taxes are not optional in Ecuador they are required by LAW), the price is published at the entrance of the restaurant (sign size A4 Bond size paper has to be printed in this size by LAW) and also printed on the menu (it is your choice to have it or not). I am sure there are cheaper place to eat at the village and your are free to choose where you eat...quality and cleaners is another matter. Madam, I think truly that you should vacation in areas that offer the comfort of the city and not the country side. I understand that some people cannot let go of the excess and excess comfort that city hotels offer. I appreciate your comments, in this case it lets us know we are doing things correctly. thank you
