Super clean, very reasonable. Right near the beach and all the action. Leo is a great host. We found this place by accident after a bad experience the night before in San Jose. We were only going to commit to one night but stayed 7 after realizing this little jewel was a great place and great value. The innkeepers were... More

We decided to stay in Playas del Coco after travelling all around Costa Rica. This hotel fit the bill for price and location, it was clean and comfortable. The rooms are a little tired and could use some TLC, but for the price its OK. The grounds however are very attractive as is the nice pool.

After running away from a filthy hotel that we had booked months ago, we arrived in Playas del Coco after dark. We asked a local store owner for a suggestion for a clean hotel. He immediately directed us to Toro Blanco. We were very pleased with the way we were greeted at the gate and shown a room. The room... More

I read the reviews of Toro Blanco before we left and I totally disagree with the people that were complaining about the noise and the cleanliness. The hotel is very close to the beach and all the restaurants and boutiques. We had a great time at Toro Blanco. Our room was just perfect for our need and we love the... More

We really enjoyed our time at the Toro Blanco. I love the balcony and the kitchenette was nice to have. Having a security guard brings that extra little peace of mind that you don't really need in Coco but it's nice to have. the pool was great with just enough shade during the day.

My partner and I arrived to Toro Blanco as the last part of our trip. The hotel is quite beautiful in contrast to the rougher aspects of the city of Coco. Each room had a large balcony with a table overlooking the pool. The rooms were dated but clean, with a kitchen in each and air conditioning and warm water.... More

Stayed here one night. Location downtown is good ~ ~ IF you want to be downtown which means noise, of course. I have no idea why this is listed as a B. & B. There is no breakfast. Room was average. Nowhere to put soap in shower. My only contact with management was not a pleasant one. After dinner, I... More

Stayed 4 nights in Toro Blanco. Reserved our room in June on the advise of our friend Gilbert who is a local Tico. Our room was clean and comfortable. Small kitchenette, AC, and hot water. Nice private patio by the beautiful pool which is lit up at night. My wife and I paid $60 US a night. Our neighbor said... More

I stayed here for a few days of diving and loved it! Bright, clean rooms, lovely pool, and great patios for relaxing and having a bite to eat. The owner/manager was generous and attentive, he even gave me a lift to the dive shop in his golf cart. Three minute walk to the beach, and a great restaurant with pizza... More

This hotel is a very very good bargain for the price. The room was always clean, had good AC and the staff were extremely friendly. I'm amazed that people have writen such bad reviews about the Toro Blanco. If you want a high end resort, then pay the extra money to stay at one and stop complaining. The Hotel sits... More
