We arrived at this hotel from Arenal Observatory Lodge. It was a five hour trip and we had arranged our transport through Savegre. The driver was outstanding - and had a difficult trip in wet weather and public holiday traffic! She was so calm and competent - unlike our trip via taxi to Arenal several days earlier! So we were off to a good start!
Savegre Hotel is in a beautiful setting - and the accommodation is great. It felt like a mountain resort. The buffet meals are wonderful - and the bar area is very comfortable, with great view and an open fire.
While my husband walked a 20km round trip to the paramo vegetation, I spent several hours at the spa - having a wonderful massage.
I also spotted the Quetzal - which was such a highlight for me!
The gardens and buildings are beautifully maintained.
I would certainly recommend this place if you are visiting Costa Rica!
