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

I stayed here with my girlfriend in January 2015 because it was close to the main places and the price was reasonable but from the onset the impression I got from the staff was incredibly bad and they didn't care about the customers in the slightest. Every night past 9pm we were told to leave or go inside our room... More

I will start by saying the hotel itself is quite unique. The pool takes up the whole courtyard and is lit up at night. The rooms rim the outside. We were shown a nice room and said we would take it, assuming that was the room we would get. Not so. The room we were supposed to have was pretty... More

By far and away the most expensive accommodation we stayed at in Costa Rica, we had very high hopes for this uniquely designed hotel. The rooms were nice, the design interesting, and the pool refreshing, but for the price, too many fundamentals were missing. We were not assigned the correct rooms upon check-in (despite confirming beforehand), the wifi signal was... More
