If you are a nature lover, especially a bird lover, this is the place for you. First of all, there were hummingbird feeders and other bird feeders all over the property. There were beautiful birds everywhere I looked. A short hike down the road with my group led us to see resplendent quetzals, both male and female, plus many other... More

Most of the guests, including me, appear to come for the hiking and the bird watching. The ride down is a bit rough, but you do not need a four-wheel drive. You do need a four-wheel drive to drive up to the trailhead of some of the trailheads, like that of Los Robles, but the country-side roads are also very... More

The Savegre experience is amazing. While the narrow, bumpy road that is the only way in (or out!) complete with blind switchbacks give one pause (and finger-crossing to not encounter any large trucks coming the other way), the destination is worth it. If you are lucky, you will see the eye-catching Resplendent Quetzal on your approach to the lodge. We... More

This valley is paradise on earth! Went for an overnight stay with my friend...stayed for three, and again returned for final last two nights before returning to the UK...IT REALLY IS THAT GOOD. The accommodation is true five star even with sunken baths, lodges nicely scattered amongst flowers and trees well landscaped to bring in/ encourage the wild life and... More

The hotel is right in the middle of a mountain, it is hard to get to a more secluded and peaceful place. The road is not that bad but some small cars may have issues getting there, once you arrive you will see a very beautiful place, birds are all over the place, even the gorgeous Quetzal. It is common... More

My wife and I spent three days at Savegre lodge in July and loved it. The purpose of our trip was to hike on Cerro del la Muerte. We rented a car from Poas in Alejuela (a good experience). The ride was uneventful except for getting lost for a while in San Jose and gets "interesting" as you descend the... More

After 3 days in the jungle, the stop at Savegre was a welcome relieve for out group. After a long drive through the beautiful country side of Costa Rica, we arrived at this beautiful mountain oasis. This stop was a thrill as we were looking for a sighting of the Resplendent Quetzal and we were in luck. There was a... More

This wonderful Eco friendly lodge is in the middle of the Cloud Forest in Costa Rica. Getting there from San Hose Airport was an adventure in itself. It was 3.5 hours of driving up (11,500 feet above sea level). Literally into the clouds. We were not sure what to expect. It was magnificent. The rooms are basic but clean and... More

We got a promo from Yuplón (sort of Groupon in the US), two nights for two half price. Which is a great way to attract local tourists who don't mind traveling during rainiy season. We checked in on Friday, just in time for dinner and checked out on Sunday. The staff is really nice, the food was great and with... More

we stayed 2 nights for a romantic getaway and had a blast. Room was spacious, squeaky clean and with large comfy bathroom. They even decorated it for us with rose petals. It does get a little chilly at night so we had to use the portable heater. Food was ok, bar was great but a little pricey. We had amazing... More
