We loved our stay at the Savegre Hotel. We had a cozy cabin with a comfortable bed, sitting area, a private bath complete with tub, and best of all a fireplace that helped take the chill out of the mountain air. The property is beautiful, full of blooming hydrangeas and other flowers, a gorgeous river, and hummingbirds zipping about. We... More

We stayed only one night but we enjoyed it a lot!! The rooms are big and the garden is awesome, you can walk thru the whole hotel yourself to see a lot of birds... Unfortunately our heater was a bit broken and it was a little fresh during the night, bigger and working heaters recommended! Regards!

Very nice lodge, about as far south as you can go in the San Gerardo reserve. Fabulous birding, with expert Melvin Fernandez as your guide. Worth asking for him by name. Quetzals? No problem. Owls at night? Problem, but he'll deliver. We had like 50 new species here in two days and a night. The rooms are fine, the grounds... More

I came here for one night with my fiancé. The ground are gorgeous with hummingbirds and many other species of birds. There are surrounding hikes that gave us some of the best birding we have ever done. The rooms are huge, clean, and comfortable. Wood burning fireplaces in each room allowed us to warm up in the evening (it gets... More

I came to hotel Savegre with the the same person who wrote this review: (the review titled, "Meh") http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g1076295-d302048-r290885288-Savegre_Hotel_Natural_Reserve_Spa-San_Gerardo_de_Dota_Province_of_San_Jose.html All I can say is that the unprofessional response of the manager to this review corresponds to the unprofessional management of the hotel. It is like someone trying to start an argument on Youtube. He called the review knit-picky and objective... More

Had a great two night stay here. Rooms are nicely appointed, staff friendly, food very good (full board is the way to go here, nothing else in the area), the lounge area is comfortable and relaxing, grounds and surroundingsare beautiful...nothing to complain about. Oh, actually, as mentioned in another review, they can change the elevator music in the restaurant...please! A... More

The Savegre is ideally located for nature lovers and birdwatchers. The garden hold many different species of birds and the hummingbirdfeeders were fantastic. Rooms are spacious and very clean, the staff very friendly and attentive. Food was excellent, especially dessert. However, I can't understand that any hotel manager thinks that people like elevator music during their meals.

People who visit San Gerardo de Dota , are mostly there because they want to see the quetzals and hummingbirds. And you do see them near the avocado trees. The hotel lies in the middle of the valley : nice rooms , friendly staff , very good guides. Restaurant is more than OK , although some variation in the buffets... More

The rooms were newly redone and the grounds lush and varied with flowers and an abundance of humming birds and other species of birds. This was our last stay for tw I nights before returning home and it was a perfect way to end our 16 day tour of CR. quiet, relaxing and great meals to boot!!
