A++ This resort is a gem tucked out of the way in a valley in the Talamanca Mountains. It has lots of hiking trails and is a great place to see quetzals and many other birds. Bananas are put out to attract flame colored tanagers and other colorful species, hummingbirds sip the nectar of the many flowers planted on the...

We wanted to see the Quetzal, but could not face yet another 5.30am departure. Instead we walked around the fabulous grounds of this hotel, with its loads of different flowers, shrubs and fruit trees. Who would have thought avocados, figs and apples would grow side by side? As for all the birds......!! Food and service was excellent in every way,...

We stayed at Savegre for 3 nights in early May. Our fabulous guide, Melvin, had us on the spot at 5:15 am which gave us a great opportunity for sightings of both male and female quetzales. The deluxe rooms around the garden area are large with lots of light and an easy walk to the dining room. The location and...

We got a nice spacious room with a fire place and a bath tub. The staff was very courteous and always willing to help. Breakfast and dinner were very good but the latter a bit too expensive. The garden and the trails on their grounds was a perfect place for birdwatching. We saw a lot of hummingbirds there. We also...

This remote location is a surprise in itself. Nested in the bottom of a canyon, it offers a respite from the heat of typical Costa Rican. The hotel is awesome and the staff are great. Our evening meal in the restaurant was simply Delicious. Fresh trout prepared just right, and many more choices. A great bar with a beautiful fire...

This place has it all. Fab Rooms/ Fab Food /Fab Gardens /Fab Staff. We had the most brilliant stay at this hotel. They even make you coffee at 5.00am in the morning so you can watch the birds from the balcony and have a coffee. What more do you want. This was the best of the hotels we stayed in...

This was the ultimate getaway. The trails were moderately difficult. We managed to hike 6.5 miles over 2 days. The view from the top was spectacular. This place is also well known for birding, especially the quetzals. Our room was well appointed and NO TV, YES! Buffet breakfast was included and was very good. Dinner buffet was not included but...

This hotel was perfect for us.The gardens magnificent, the birdlife breathtaking and the staff and guides wonderful. The story of the Chacon family building this haven up to how it is today is revolutionary. To meet Signor Chacon in person was a privilege and to find our guide is his grandson was extraordinary. We bought the field guide to the...

Stayed at this location as part of a 10 person birding group with a guide. Definitely a nice place whether birding or not. The birds present themselves to you in the gardens and at the feeders constantly. The guide got us to the place to see the Resplendent Quetzal on an easy hike from the gardens that we would not...
