Trogon Lodge San Gerardo de Dota

The only way to realy get here is by car and it is hard to find, but it is a gem. We enjoyed hiking through the forest to beautiful waterfalls and enjoying nature. My husband and I are very young so it was a little funny when we were surrounded by a little older generation snapping pictures of birds. We actually didnt stay at this hotel, but wanted to leave a review saying if you are thinking of going, totally do it. I have been to the bigger cloud forrests in Costa Rica and this was by far the best and you avoid the crowds.

We visited the Trogon Lodge this august for one night and we were so happy with this location that I wanted to express the greatness of this place in a review. The service was excellent, the food was innovative and often created from vegetables and fruit grown by the people from the lodge (I can suggest everything connected with trouts because thats made from the trouts living in the ponds on the lodge area). There were several little trails near the lodge in a breathtaking rain forest we could walk and you could watch many hummingbirds and other interesting birds feeding on the nectar of the flowers (even though it was rain season, that didnt bothered the birds). I can also recommend the quetzal-tour offered by the lodge (birding tour in the morning) - that was very informative and interesting and gave us the chance to spot at least four of those rare birds, next to others like the emerald tukanet. I hope the Trogon lodge will see many more guests in the future - it is a really good place for outdoor-loving people who want to see nature and be as close to it as possible. Of course its a quiet fresh place but we didnt mind the heater being off for the daytime because the lodge keeps also an eye on safing energy and ressources. The beds are comfortable and very warm and when we came back from dinner there was a warm bedpan for each of us :) We hope to come back one day!

My girlfriend and I are birders so we booked this lodge through My Costa Rica in hopes of seeing a Quetzal. While unpacking in our room a lodge employee came to our room and told us there was a quetzal in the trees along the river. We weren't at the lodge 10 minutes until we saw our first Quetzal. We saw a total of about 12 Quetzals on the lodge grounds during a stay, one male quetzal was 10 feet from us and we saw two in a avocado tree in front of our room. The lodge employee pointing birds to us was Caesar and he is a very nice guy. All the employees were very nice and all seemed to really love their job. The girl at the front desk made sure everything ran smooth and she knew about all the birds in the area.
We saw lots of birds on the lodge grounds and the grounds were stunning. It what I would imagine what the Garden of Eden might have looked like. The plants, shrubs, and flowers were simply beautiful. The Savagre River ran through property and it was crystal clear and cold. The Trogan Lodge has the most beautiful grounds I have ever seen. Rooms were very nice and no need for AC because the weather was so cool and cold at night. Food at the lodge was great and you could eat fresh caught rainbow trout every night is so desired. The chef and kitchen staff took great pride and preparing meals. Very nice.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good to me. Rooms are built into the mountain so one has to walk up to the rooms.

We spent our anniversary there the first part of August. It was so nice and relaxing we just loved it there. Went on a tour and they had more things to do too. The food and the staff were great will go back in the dry season for sure. The Canopy rides looked great but were not running in the rainy season.If you want to relax this is it.

Room Tip: The road In is a little scary but lots of roads here are the sam Narrow.

Our family loved staying at Trogon Lodge for two nights. Adrianna and her partner who led the Quetzal early morning birding adventure were both superb at their jobs and the entire staff was professional, personable, and responsive. Between hiking, birdwatching and horseback riding, we still found time to relax in the idyllic setting.
