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.

This is my third time to stay at Savegre Lodge, and it is really one of my favorite places. A great place to photograph hummingbirds and other wildlife. The grounds are lovely and the staff is very helpful. They have a new garden across from the property which is designed specifically for photographers. Moreno one of the owners took me... More

Exiting the Panamerican Highway I nearly didn't take the road that leads to this gem. It is narrow, rocky, rutted at times, and unbelievably steep as one descends from the crest of the mountain all the way to the river that cuts the valley below. I am a solo traveller so was very cautious, therefore this portion (which is 9km)... More

From the first moment to the last everything about Savegre Hotel, Natural Reserve & Spa was perfect. Added to the natural beauty that makes this a bucket-list location are the immaculate grounds, comfortable and accommodating facilities, and delicious meals. Taking it all "over the top" is the friendly and helpful nature of owners and staff who clearly LOVE their work... More

We stayed at the Savegre Hotel recently on our trip to Costa Rica. The main agenda was to see and photograph the Resplendent Quetzal and other birds found in and around the area. The Hotel grounds are spread out and have quite a few varieties of birds frequenting the place. The cottages/rooms are well appointed and comfortable. They have a... More

I stayed at this beautiful hotel for 2 nights. I hired a guide, Marino, to show me the quetzals. We drove to a spot about 1.5 kilometers from the hotel where many wild avocado trees grow. This is the favorite food of the quetzals. I spotted 4 or 5 of these gorgeous birds within one minute of arriving at this... More

Super service from Hugo and his team in the dining room. Very good food and great variety of choices. Rooms are clean and quiet. Very helpful service at reception. Birding and guiding services were the best of several eco resorts visited in CR. Would definitely return on another trip to CR.

Grounds with beautiful flowers and hummingbirds everywhere. The food served as buffet was excellent with a friendly staff. I can't say enough about the grounds being so well maintained and the fact that it is environmentally self sustained. Nice room, helpful front desk and I really recommend taking a hike or birding tour....seeking out the colorful Quetzal was a real... More

The SavegreLodge is set in a gorgeous valley complete with a stream full of Trout and many different kinds of birds and plants. The rooms are somewhat dated and since it can get quite cold there they need better / bigger heaters in the rooms. The food was fine, nothing to write home about, but no complaints. We drove part...
