Lovely lodge in the cloud forest 3 hours south of San Jose. Off the beaten track but so worth it. Clean and cosy rooms (including a small heater which was very welcome at night). Gorgeous gardens - including hummingbirds everywhere. Richard and all in the restaurant was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Went on 2 early morning Quetzal tours with Marino...

We stayed in a junior suite for 3 nights with breakfast and dinner included. The cabanas are in the most beautiful garden with an amazing number of species of birds. We saw male and female resplendent quetzal in the trees just behind our room. We saw 4 males and 4females at different times plus 60 species of birds. The guides...

The Good: Nice location, beautiful garden, lots of amenities very good breakfast included. Spacious rooms and comfortable beds. The Bad: Too touristy! Roving bands of photographers with HUGE scopes troupe through the grounds in search of the perfect shot of the illusive Quetzal. Somewhat amusing except when they find it a few feet from your door. Our room had a...

Very nice lodge at 2.200 m. We were there in November, unfortunately the weather was not fantastic. Rooms were very spacious and there was a small electrical heater in the room. Staff was very friendly and helpfull, food was great. Super place to see birds, kolibris are next to the restaurant. Views are spectacular. Would love to come back.

The location of this hotel is a bit difficult to get to, the road isn't the best. However it is so worth it! The rainforest is so beautiful surrounding the hotel and you have an amazing view of the mountains and cloud forest. The rooms are big, the bathrooms are big, everything is very clean and has a cabin feel...

The people at the place were so patient and helpful. Even helped us with our Spanish and when we asked for more firewood it arrived promptly. Food was excellent and service wonderful. And the birds were amazing. Beautiful gardens and plenty of places to hike. A quiet lounge to read and a spa that we didn't have time to visit.

This mountain hotel offers the guest a rare mix of nature watching and weather that comes from an upper altitude location (over 7,000 feet above sea level). Rooms are clean, the food is served either a la carte or buffet style. The Tanager feeding station is a favorite for me, as are the hummingbird stations all around the main building....

We stayed here 4 years ago, and I have been wanting to return ever since. Rooms are clean and the food is good, but we are mainly here for the birds. Love photographing the birds on the plants around the feeders and throughout the grounds. Our guide was very knowledgeable about birds that my husband needed for his list, so...

We thoroughly enjoyed are time at the Savegre hotel. The rooms and food are very good but the best element is the profusion of humming birds and other birds including the Quartzal which we finally saw on our last evening. The gardens are a profusion of colour which help attract the huge variety of birds but we didn't find any...
