This review is not as pleasant and kind as the other reviews written on this page. We are so sorry to say that our experience in the hotel Toucan Stay Inn was terrible. Mike (person in charge from Vancouver Canada) welcome us kindly and showed us the room (Owners cabin) where a friend and I were going to stayed for... More

Dear Traveler, I can't tell you how sorry I am that this "incident" and "shocking experience" happened to you and your friends while staying at the Toucan Stay Inn. I, immediately, responded to the email you sent me by catching next flight out of Florida to Costa Rica, to address my manager, Mike, with all the intentions of firing him.... More

We were looking forward to our stay at Toucan Stay Inn (TSI) as Jon had been very nice to deal with over the phone and in e-mails, and the vast majority of the reviews are "Excellent", with a few "Very Goods", and only one negative review. Most of the glowing reviews were written by people who had written multiple reviews... More

We enjoyed our stay here soooo much. Mike was such an excellent host, he made us feel like we were staying with a friend. We felt so at home. Our room had the most comfortable bed I've ever had the pleasure of sleeping on while traveling in Central America, which was such a nice surprise. A comfortable bed, coffee maker,... More

I had the pleasure of ending my 4 month journey in Central America in lovely Playa Punta Uva at the Toucan Stay Inn. I enjoyed my time in the owners quarters of the Tucan Stay Inn for the last week in February 2014, a great private studio apartment with screened in porch and super comfy king size bed. The unit...

Bob and I stayed at the Toucan Stay Inn in February, 2014 for 7 days! We found it very relaxing and quiet and the tropical plants surrounding the place very exotic! We had everything we needed to do some of our own cooking and coffee each morning. The accommodations provided exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed taking a chair and a... More

We stayed at the inn for 5 nights. Mike the manager was extremely friendly and helpful. The beaches are the most gorgeous I have ever seen. If you are looking for relaxation this is the place. If you are looking for adventure this is the place.

We stayed for 12 days, unfortunately Jon wasn't able to be there but Mike was. He made us feel like we were at home relaxing with a friend. The place was warm and inviting, with the beach located less than 5 minutes away. Mike shared some of his experiences and knowledge of the area with us. This was extremely helpful... More

We stayed 5 nights at the TSI for our honeymoon and we are absolutely thrilled with our choice. Jon (the owner) rented out his owner's cabin for us which was incredible clean, spacious, had a full kitchen, filtered water, bathtub, A/C (yes, you heard me...A/C), ceiling fans, a gigantic bed and a screened in porch complete with hammock. The grounds... More

We stayed 8 days at TSI with owner Jon and Mike and loved it. We were staying in Junior Suite Jose B (!) which included a full fridge, coffee maker and little dining table. The room came with a comfortable king size bed and everything was furnished with a tropical feel. The breakfast we purchased in the mornings was delicious!... More

If you stay at Toucan Shelter Inn (TSI) and the owner Jon is in residence, you get a free and inclusive cabaret. Jon has an inexhaustible store of anecdotes and stories which will keep you amused. If you decide to break away, both he and Mike the Manager can advise about places to visit and about the local restaurants. TSI... More
