My goal in staying at this lodge was to view and photograph the Resplendent Quetzal. I had this was the best chance to see this magnificent bird, and I wasn't disappointed. My goal was achieved the first afternoon. The hummingbird feeders were also a delight, with added perches for the photographer in mind. Birding aside, the grounds were quite attractive and the accommodations very comfortable and roomy. If mobility is an issue, be sure to ask for a room closer to the dining area. The buffet meals offered a good variety, but in spite of the warming plates, the food was often cold. The salad bar and dessert table never disappointed, though!
If you are birding in Costa Rica, Savegre is not to be missed.
