Trogon Lodge was the fifth and last location that we stayed in during our 2 week trip to Costa Rica. Our initial impression was "we've saved the best until last" as the lodge and gardens are stunning on first sight. The whole site is steep with beautifully tended gardens and a spectacular river running through. We were shown to our...

The Trogon Lodge is in a valley near the Serro de Muerte along the Savegre River. The views, the flowers, the birds, and the river are stunning. The rooms are charming as are the staff. At night they turn on the heat and place hot water bottles in the bed. The breakfast has the traditional gallo de pinto as well...

The complex is situated down in a valley. The road is quite narrow and twisty. You don't want to face another car in the narrow curves. The site is very nice, there is some trails, chairs and tables, etc. There is a river on site making a relaxing sound. The room(cottage) is quite small. In our room we had one...

Dear François G, Thank you for taking the time to review and share your experience at Trogon Lodge. Yes, the last 7 km of the road are on a narrow, windy road. I always stress on the importance of driving carefully, slowly and using the strong shifts of the car to avoid breaks to heat up. The view of the...

Good rooms, attentive staff, lovely grounds and good food. Always felt well looked after. The birding trip found Quetzals - so perfect visit. The drive down to the lodge is a bit hairy but needs must.

The stunning grounds are one of the highlights of this lodge. Most people come for the birdwatching, and especially the Quetzal! Don't be fooled by the lattitude. It gets cold at night. The cabins have plenty of bedding and the staff drops of a hot water bottle at bedtime. About a quarter of our companions had no heat in their...

A pretty location by the Savegre River with a trail to a waterfall Quetzal tour was excellent with Greivin, our guide. The lodge is very close to where you can find quetzal birds. Wonderful experience!

Just spent 2 nights at the Trogon Lodge in San Gerardo de Dota. Excellent food, beautiful scenery/landscaping, great service, pool table (really fun) and don't miss the Lemon Daiquiris at the bar.

The whole lodge is beautifully designed and very well maintained. Our bungalow (even the bathroom) was modern, comfortable and cosy with gas heater and hot-water bag for the nights (with remember to holiday at grandma) great! The restaurant offers really good food and the menus varied. We saw Quetzals (female and male) during the guided tour.
