Booked the Jungle suite, the staff made a mistake so they gave us the house as compensation. Outstanding!! Next day, moved to jungle suit which is magical, great nature and Lake Arenal views with trees full of birds. Staff was very polite and warm. Would go for a whole month if I could!

Found Toad Hall by chance when the road to la Fortuna was blocked, ended up staying for three nights. A real highlight of our trip, the rooms and atmosphere are just what we hoped for in a trip to CR, a great view of the lake and lots of birds to entertain while having a morning coffee. La Fortuna is... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here in April, and our stay here was far and away the highlight of our trip. We also spent some time at Nayara (a world class hotel, rated one of the very best in the world on this very site), where I was officiating a wedding, and we were so much happier at Toad Hall....

The burger we had was pretty good the bun definitely tasted homemade . The fries like most in Coast Rico were a bit soggy but the salad made up for it since and had lots of fruit and nice vegetables in it. The views from this place can't be beat and there's so much birdwatching to entertain you while eating.... More

Our room reservation in Fortuna got cancelled and as we were discussing this with the hotel we stopped in front of Toad Hall. Jeff came out to ask if everything was okay and as I explained our problem he said he had a room for us. The rooms are all super cool and each individually unique. Jeff was a great... More

We stopped at Toad Hall briefly to get coffee bags on our way down to Guanacaste and just fell in love with the place. Though we had already prepaid for a hotel three hours away, we turned around once we arrived at our prebooked place and came straight back to Toad Hall - and were SO GLAD about our choice.... More

After reading "3il"'s comment I had to point out that 2000 colones for a beer is "toad"ally reasonable. 2000 colones is about $4, so to complain about having to pay for them after getting a beautiful room for $15 a night it absurd. Get a grip buddy. I didn't stay at Toad Hall because we already had accommodation in La... More

We stopped here for a cuppa and breakfast on our way down to the coast after staying near the volcano. We both wished we had stayed here instead of at Cerro Chato eco lodge. Place was lovely, food good and staff great. The scenery was stunning too and the place was cheap. What more could you want. Not luxurious by... More
