The pretzels are for those who cannot spell Quetzal, we spotted 2 Resplendant Quetzels in the vicinity of the hotel, plus a significant number of other birds in the grounds. Our suite was superb, comfortable and clean, and with wi-fi too. Trout is a culinary feature here, being so close to trout farms - cooked in different styles, never disappointing.... More

Savegre was recommended to us for bird-watching, and we were so glad we went. Two months ahead of our April stay, weekends were already booked, so we stayed only one night instead of the two we desired. Our one dinner & one breakfast were quite good. While we were at first dismayed to discover buffets at both meals, the food... More

This place is magic. The hotel is nestled in a small, picturesque valley and is teeming with bird life. I have never seen so many beautiful hummingbirds within a few inches of my head or hand. We also saw the both the male and female resplendent Quetzals which were amazing. The chalets are very spacious, clean, have lovely hot showers... More

This is 7 kilometers down a precarious mostly dirt road but worth the drive. It is a lovely family run Eco property with lots of flowers and birds, especially hummingbirds. Rooms are individual cabins, nicely laid out but the tub is hard to get in and out and slippery when showering. It gets quite chilly here in the evening and... More

Great spot for both birders and bird photographers. Lots of knowledgable staff to help with birding sites and viewing spots. In 3 days we must of viewed more than 25 dif spieces of birds. Rooms are confortable with large bathrooms and bathtubs. Rooms get very cool at night so the space heater in the room came in handy. No TV... More

This is a sprawling property with beautiful accommodations. The rooms are spacious and clean. All are bordering on lush, green forest habitat...great habitat for birds and animal life. Food was excellent, with many choices from the buffet meal options. They offer a "happy hour! " Two drinks for the price of one, if ordered before 6PM. There were hummingbird feeders... More

My husband and I and another couple birding couple spent two nights (and three glorious days) at this beautiful spot in the Costa Rican highlands. Every moment, from the friendly greeting at check-in to the gracious farewell at check-out, was a joy. The cabins were spotless, the beds were excellent, and the bathroom (with tub large enough for two) was... More

Stayed at this nature lodge for 3 nights in February 2015. Access road steep, hilly and narrow with sharpe corners, but worth the drive. This is a serious bird lovers destination. They have guided hikes for all levels with naturalist, and you will find some very serious birders from all over the world here. The hummingbirds that come to the... More

This nature lodge is one of a kind. We traveled as a family, and while we love guided hikes and naturalist talks....we were not quite prepared for the ardent nature of bird watching practiced by most of the guests at this hotel. This is a lodge for a particular, bird loving type of traveler....one rarely encountered outside this habitat. The... More
