Savegre is located at 7,200 ft elevation, at the end of a 6 mile twisting dirt and gravel road off a main highway, about a 2 hr drive from San Jose. The road is bumpy and dusty; but once you cross the Savegre River, a small, bubbly stream and enter the hotel complex, you’ll immediately enjoy the peace and beauty...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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.

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.

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.
