Beautiful place. Staff was great, especially Gravin who one evening personally fixed our water heater very quickly.


Trogon is a magical place. I was hesitant when we learned how cold it would be but I would go back in a heartbeat. We loved how quiet and calming and beautiful the place was. Also, the food was delicious and very reasonably priced. This place far exceeded our expectations. The staff was very kind and friendly and we loved the bar also. One tip: game in the bar would have been nice.


This place was amazing. The gardens were spectacular and it was just so relaxing. The staff were not entirely clear on when we needed to make plans for walks, zip lining etc. but they accommodated us as long as the weather cooperated. It would be nice to see a little more variety on the menu, which was the same for lunch and dinner.


I would have appreciated a little more flexibility in the tours


Beautiful facility. Loved the hot water bottles in our bed at night. Limited areas to walk and dine w/o a car, but for one day we were able to take the loop walk by the waterfall and it worked well for us.


Spectacular setting. Very attentive staff. Delicious breakfast. I will be saying that about every place we stayed. This place is magical. It's kind of like a hidden valley Shangri-La. I think I will have dreams about this place. They will all be happy.


This was a wonderful experience. The accommodations were beautiful. The staff was courteous and friendly. The meals were excellent.
