Great hotel. Location is right off the beach. Staff is so so friendly. WiFi is fast and they always have beers for 1mil or 1 dollar US. The courtyard layout is wonderful for communicating with other guests. The pool is centered in the courtyard with bar seats in the water and a bartender that acquiesce to all of your thirst... More

Really enjoyed staying here May 4-9, the owner Leo is very easy going and direct, he gave me lots of good tips. The pool in the courtyard is a true gem! Step out of your room (ground floor) and dip in the pool. The beach is steps away. The hotel is very secure (gate and then a fence), and parking... More

I spent two nights with my daughter in Toro Blanco last week... the all experience was perfect. Toro Blanco is a really nice, safe and clean place to enjoy Playas del Coco. Highly recommended..... I hope you enjoy it as well as we did....

My friend and I spent nearly a week here at the beginning of March. The bar noise others complain about was not an issue. We always slept well. I have only good memories of this place: a well-equipped kitchen, and a comfortable patio, and a pool right outside our door. Staff are friendly and helpful (and yeah, I was glad... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in February. The owner and desk staff are very welcoming, the pool is great, the environment and décor is lovely. The owner is a pet lover. All the kitchen utensils provided like nowhere else to make your stay great! What is really overlooked is the cleaning of the rooms: you MUST have some other... More

We found the Toro Blanco one night, knowing we were not going to spend another night at the horrible Savannah Hotel. It was tucked away and seemed quiet on a jumping Saturday night. Perhaps you could hear noise in the rooms as other reviewers mentioned, but that's what ear plugs are for (we never travel without them!). Sunday morning we... More

This hotel was very disappointing. I went there with a group of students on our recent trip. The rooms were not updated, with stains on the bedspreads, and not all that clean. Each room had ash trays in them, and was clearly a party hotel. There were bad smells everywhere, especially lingering smoke. The owners also smoked in front of... More

Do you enjoy toilets that don't flush? Burning hot showers? Jail Warden like hotel staff that won't allow you to leave your room after dark? Then Toro Blanco Resort is for you! Does staying in a geriatric like nursing home atmosphere sound appealing?.. Then look no further! I should also mention the intense bass bellowing from the night club that... More
