Interior of the restaurant feels Bavarian, lots of wood on the ceiling, etc with huge windows to view the hummingbirds at the feeders. A tropical paradise. Take the path down to the stream - about 20 minutes each way - it feels like you are back in the age of dinosaurs! Honestly I don't recall much about the food as...

This lodge gave us a real sense of freedom and privacy. The cabins are nicely situated on a large terrain with many trees and bushes, and there is a well maintained trail leading from the cabins towards the river in the valley. We also liked the 'a la carte' concept at the restaurant here, which is different from most lodges...

One of our favourites of the trip! Sachatamia has everything we needed - cute bungalow with a nice view, hummingbird feeders, wifi in the restaurant and a full service a-la-carte restaurant which was a welcome relief from other places with fixed daily menus. What a treat to have a jacuzzi after a full day of birding! The staff were great,...

This lodge is very well located, near the town of Mindo (5 -10minutes by car). The area corresponds to the typical cloud forest so expect fog sometime during the day. The front desk is a wide space with huge windows to see the dozens of humming birds around. They clearly ask customers to take off shoes or use protectors provided...

We stayed there for a holiday weekend, rooms are nice and clean, food is good. Staff very friendly and helpful. It's near Mindo so the weather is perfect and it's a 10 min car ride to it. Good heated pool and paths for birdwatching and walking.

The reserve comprises 300 acres, of primary, regenerating and disturbed forest as well as pastureland. The neighbouring land is a mosaic of pastures and both primary and degraded forests, at an average altitude of 5577 feet...

I just returned from a medical mission in Mindo, Ecuador and had the pleasure of staying at Sachatamia. This was my 8th visit to Mindo but my first time staying at the lodge. I can honestly say that I have only excellent things to say about my stay. First of all the staff was great and they were constantly reminding...

We stopped for lunch while passing through on business. It was a foggy, drizzly day, we decided to take a walk down to a small stream before lunch - it takes about an hour. The forest felt primeval, dense and dark with fern trees and bromeliads abounding. The restaurant feels like it was imported directly from Bavaria with dark wood...

If visiting in the Quito area and you have time, this would be a lovely place to stay for a couple or three nights for rest and relaxation in a peaceful place.

There's an amazing view from the hillside property, but it was raining, so we didn't get to enjoy it long. We were asked to remove our shoes and given an option of sock feet, bare feet, or the footies they hand out when you go through a show home. The flooring is wood and the stairs to the guestroom level...
