If you have the chance to stay in Puntarenas, stay away from this place. Creepy rooms, walls have holes and looks like you are in 1930. AC is really old sounds like a turbine No hot water. You can hear your neighbor showering. The pool waterpump is always making noises as well as the ice machine

Not fancy, but clean and reasonably priced. The decore is pretty old - probably built in the late 1950s or early 1960s. (The flowered bedspreads match the drapes, and I think I had the same set in 1967.) This is not a luxury hotel, but the staff is friendly, and the rooms are clean. There is good water pressure for...

We stayed only one night.The room was in excellent condition, with a perfect view to the sea. The hotel is located on the seafront, and although the beach is very bad kept with trash on the sand, it is a plus this location. breakfast is included on an average price and is basic. Personal is very friendly

When we have stay at this hotel, around 2010, Puntarenas wasn’t a well visited sea side town by foreigners. We arrived at the hotel Toga during the “La virgin de la mar” festival. I think we where the only foreigners among this packed crowd of Costa Ricans vacationers and locals. The Hotel Toga was the only one where a room... More

Stayed 1 night in Puntarenas when forced to stay due to traffic accident halting our road trip down to the pacific coast. Managed to negiotiate a 20% discount on the original price offered by reception- was still pretty expensive at 90 dollars for the night including breakfast (which was average at best). Room was large but basic, with good views... More

We booked this hotel since it was recommended in "Lonely Planet". When were taken to our room, we decided to leave straight away. - There was poor security, the safety box didn't work, the balcony door didn't lock. - The air conditioning didn't work well (or perhaps the batteries of the remote control were old), to we could only switch...

Open for 60 years! On the beach in Puntarenas, to be honest it was the nicest looking place on the strip and we needed a place to stay for the night before traveling inland the next day. The Hotel Tioga was just what we were looking for. Quiet and easy going, and the pool was clean and relaxing. We also... More

My husband reserved the "executive suite" for several days on our vacation. We were given a 4th floor room with a mediocre bed, an old TV, two plastic lawn chairs, and an old dresser. The balcony had dried bird excrement on it and there were no other amenities. The noise from the dirty parking lot/ beach across the street went... More

I have visited this hotel for as long as I can remember, but the standard was not by far the same as it has been upon previous visits. We had booked the so called "BEST" room in the hotel with a balcony, however upon arrival to the room there was nothing special about the room at all, not even a... More
