We stayed at Savegre last week for 3 nights and our stay there was perfect. The gardens are beautiful and meticulously take care of. The birding is very good even though we didn't go to far in the trails of the property. The food is really good and the trout is spectacular. One day I took the hike to the... More

The grounds are what stand out the most at Savegre. The flora, avifauna, and general surroundings are captivating. The nearby hiking (birding) trails are excellent, as is the wifi service throughout the property (a rarity). I was also assigned to one of the better birding guides I've ever had in Costa Rica, Raul Fernandez, and I've been lucky enough to... More

Savegre is a very nice Location, that you will never imagen in the middle of the mountains of Costa Rica. Peaceful, for familly and couples. Great spot for bird watching, for photographers and people that will like to adventure in the trails. We went for a 1 day pass and had access to all the Reserve. Excellent buffet lunch.

If you want to get away into the remote mountains of Costa Rica but like all the nice aspects of a hotels then this is it. I stayed at this resort for several days while on an Overseas Adventure Travel trip in Dec 2014. The resort complex is gorgeously landscaped with lush flowers and vegetation. The rooms are rustic-lovely (with... More

Savegre is a very special place in a lovely location. The road down to the hotel is long, windy and bumpy but when you arrive the hotel is amazing. Our room was a standard room but provided us with everything we needed and more including free wifi. The food was always of an excellent standard and the bar is lovely... More

If you're into birding, this is the place for you. If you're into Adirondack charm, this is the place for you. It's good otherwise. I just was not blown away by it. The grounds are beautiful, and well maintained. Activities nearby include hiking, horseback riding, and the like. The room we had (108) was nothing special, really. Food was good,... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a private birding trip. The valley is remarkable, and the hiking great. The accommodations are comfortable, clean, and the entire area well-maintained. Food was a nice balance of CR "typica" and other flavors, with a speciality of locally-grown trout. The gardens and nearby walking areas are lovely, and you can venture... More

We were visiting family in CR and traveled to Savegre for a weekend getaway. The grounds are beautiful and meticulously maintained. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The food is served buffet style for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is OK in quality...nothing spectacular. My husband and I went on a couple of hikes during the first day (we... More

Well designed resort with nearly everything one might need: restaurant, bar, spa, souvenir shop, private reserve with trails. Beautiful and extensive manicured gardens, hummingbird and platform feeders, lots of avian visitors of varied species. Spacious rooms – at least ours was. Hotel is surrounded by mountains, in a breathtakingly scenic valley. Hotel entrance crosses a stream from where you can... More

My husband and I spent 3 days/3 nights at Savegre Hotel. We had read this area was a natural reserve and as birders, a perfect place to vacation. Our second morning was a delightful surprise as a male Resplendent Quetzal was perched nearby, outside our room. We had gotten several pictures as the bird posed for quite a while. I... More
