This cloud-forest lodge is a good place to stay to see the Resplendent Quetzal - we were lucky enough to see him and her at their nest site. There are hundreds of other bird species to be seen in the area and great bird guides available. We spent 5 hours with Raoul, who was excellent. There are plenty of trails... More

My son and I booked a five day stay at Savegre because they advertise 30 kilometers of hiking trails, and we planned to hike the entire time. When we arrived we discovered the 30 kilometers was a big MENTIRA, and that in fact they had 12 kilometers of trails. We showed them the misrepresentation on their advertisement and asked to... More

My wife and I stayed in 1 of the individual cabins, 1 large room with spacious bathrrom. The room was attractive and clean and everything worked well. The cabins are distributed around a central garden area which was very pleasant and included a bird-feeding area so there were always something interesting to see, brightly colored birds and a variety of...

This outstanding eco-lodge in the tiny town of San Gerardo de Dota was my favourite lodge of the trip! The lodge and rooms are warm and comfortable. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced. The garden is full of hummingbirds, tanagers and other birds…………..and there are Resplendent Quetzals just down the road! If you advise the lodge you are enroute,... More

This hotel is nestled in a river valley half-way down a mountain side, with breathtaking views. There are abundant species of birds and plant lives for the most avid photographers. The dining room, bar, and individual rooms are tastefully designed. Wi-fi is available at no charge in the bar area. Each room has a phone, but no TV, fan, or... More

I was fortunate to revisit this hotel again 9 years after my first visit. Wonderful applies to everything about it. My goal was to share the Resplendent Quetzal with my visiting sister as well as the crisp mountain air. The restaurant is great and featured the Rainbow Trout that we see in the river. A new addition since my last... More

One reason you come here is to get a glimpse of the rare and beautiful Quetzal and a few hundred other bird species. If your reason is bird watching make sure you arrange for a guide through the hotel. The guides are expert bird spotters and will take you directly to the places where you will see the most birds...

OK, this is birder's heaven, there are and you may very well see, Quetzals, among many other species. Oh, this is a hotel review is it? Nice big chalets, very comfortable and clean. We'd been roughing it for the past few days and this place seemed like heaven. The restaurant is busy and the food good - you'll note the... More

The rooms were beautiful, the grounds were spectacular, the food was delicious and the birds were plentiful and beautiful. The people who worked at the resort were accommodating and friendly. Because of misjudging the traffic through San Jose, our group of ten arrived late and the manager of the dining room held it open so we didn't have to go... More

The location is superb of that there is no question. Situated at the bottom of a steep and windy dirt road, Birders clearly love this place for there were bus loads of them. Many may find the elusive Quetzal as we did and the delightful Hummingbirds are plentiful around the feeders outside the reception area. But .......lets talk about about... More
