My couple and me really enjoy our staying at Savegre Hotel. We loved the suite with fireplace, the hotel was clean and staff was very kind. We really enjoyed quetzal and bird tour. We should stay more days and enjoy more about this wonderful place located between mountains and nature.

We stayed two nights in this lovely valley hotel - the hotel itself is impeccably well run and provides comfortable lodge type rooms in manicured gardens full of hummingbirds, robins, woodpeckers as well as many other birds. There are easy enough walks one can do from the hotel, these provide additional chances to see other birds and creatures. It's worth... More

Getting here was quite an adventure. There are true hairpin turns going up the mountain with steep drop offs on one side. The drive, however, is worth it. The room I had was warm and comfortable and very clean. I sat on the patio watching dozens of hummingbirds and butterflies flying among the beautiful flowers that surrounded me and could... More

This is a nice family owned hotel located just in the middle of Cartago Mountains. If you like nature, even better if you like taking picture of rear birds and flowers, you will enjoy the gardens and the trial that you can take with and off road vehicle or ATV if you have your own one, or just taking the...

This was my second visit to the hotel in four years. The food quality has improved since my last visit but still needs some work. Buffet food can get cold quickly so go when it opens. Servers have limited English. Rooms very clean so thank you very much to housekeeping. Nice trails on the property. Gift shop is not great.... More

I stayed here at the end of a tour of Costa Rica and it certainly seemed like they had saved the best accommodation till last! Rooms were very big, bathrooms too. Rooms were reminiscent of Scandinavian lodges - lots of light coloured wood and high ceilings. Beds were large and very comfortable, with plenty of pillows! The room had AC... More

We decided to come to San Gerardo de Dota to experience staying in a cloud forest. The grounds of the hotel with the Savegre River running through are beautiful. There are ornate flower gardens in front of every set of cabins that attract hummingbirds and other birds. There are three hiking trails right off of the property that are lovely,... More

My husband and I spent a few nights at Savegre to celebrate our anniversary. It was a wonderful and tranquil weekend. The cabins were cozy and we loved having a fire every night. The restaurant had great food, and the overall service was exceptional. The property is beautiful with some nice hikes into the hills and to some waterfalls.

This is a very nice lodge located 80km From San Jose. The lodge do have some trails in their property but they are very very step so I would not recommend that for little kids or older folks! The grounds near the rooms are really pretty. The spa it's also very nice. They have a beautiful bar that serve some... More

We spent 2 nights in this hotel. Full nature, very quiet, beautiful flowers and trees. We lived in a small house, very large room, easy to park our car. We did a walk with Melvin, the hotel guide and we saw the quetzal. We also did a spa experience, and this is excellent, very nice people.
