This is not a bad place but it's not great -- you're paying money for the hammocks and the hummingbirds. For $85 for a triple you should get something better than the cramped room, uncomfortable bed, and disgusting pool that is on offer here.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast on the deck with the hummingbirds overlooking the mountains was a perfect setting and incredibly peaceful! Wifi only worked in the common areas but who needs the internet when surrounded by such natural beauty?!

The views are great. Lots of hummingbirds on the back deck. Food very good. Beer and wine also available. The owner is super nice and helpful. I would give them another star if the rooms were a bit nicer as they are very basic. But they are clean. Good wifi in the common area.

Had two nights here during Christmas. They organised a nice dinner on Christmas Eve. Breakfast is accompanied by lots of hummingbirds. Rooms are basic but fine. Good location, close to the town centre but not too noisy. Staff is friendly.

Nice, friendly inn in the tiny town of Minca. Like most inns/hotels it's near the main drag, so there is some noise from the sometimes rowdy street. Unfortunately loud guests brought the party and arguments back to hotel, but not much the limited staff could do. Amenities are basic. Staff, food and views all nice. Pool did not look tempting....

Spent three nights in Minca. This hotel is probably the best place to stay in town...the rest of the accommodations at more in the hostel range--or at least what we saw. The hotel was a nice central place in town...basically right in the center--across from the police station. The hotel had hummingbird feeders (and a fruit feeder as well) and...

Nice small hotel with beautiful, spacious grounds. We had arrived just before they closed the reception for the night and it was too late to go birding in the evening but we made up for it the next morning with a walk around the grounds. We were too tired to walk into town for dinner but found sandwiches at a...

Friends and I stayed two nights in Minca and at this hotel particularly because of its location. The hummingbird feeders were also a main draw for us. The place is lovely, the rooms basic but comfortable, the veranda with the feeders fun and the view great. Breakfast was nice. The location was good as about a 5 minute walk got...

It is a real pity because the hotel is spacious, quite and charming and the environent is so beaufitul but it seem like the staff has received stupid rules that are more important than client satisfaction. In three days we had four little argues with them, nothing very important just that they don't think about making the customer happy. The...
