I went with my daughters (8 and 13) and had a wonderful time. Very nice place, clean and very nice and friendly staff. The trails are very nice and safe. The heater in the rooms is beautiful and really does its work!

Trogon Lodge is an absolute gem in a fantastically beautiful cloud forest valley populated by the Resplendent Quetzal. The amenities, rooms, food, and grounds were superb during out stay. The highlight was the early morning Quetzal Quest tour with the amazing guide Greivin. Oh, and having a hot water bottle delivered to your room at bed time is an added...

We spent two nights here at the end of a two week holiday in Costa Rica and really wish that we could have spent more time. Our room was very cozy and comfortable with a large balcony.

This place is amazing, the gardens are absolutely spectacular - even in the rain! We stayed here for 2 nights and ate onsite both evenings as we no longer had a car. The menu is a set price $24 for 3 courses, the food is very good but i only generally eat 1 or 2 courses so was a little...

We found the location to be beautiful at the side of a fast flowing mountain stream. The manager was charming and helpful and the walking trails and wildlife superb.

Wow what a paradise! Only 2 hours to SanJose but what a jewel.

A very special place tucked in its own mini-valley near the bottom of a perilous road, complete with flowery gardens, a mountain stream, elegance, atmosphere (even at 7000 feet), unique birds and their own rainbow trout (served for dinner). The double-cabins and other buildings are scattered carefully around the hotel grounds, linked by beautifully crafted pink stone paths. The buildings...
