Darla has an amazing little piece of heaven above the tree tops. If you are looking for intimate, beautiful, artistic, and peaceful play to stay-this is worth every penny and the extra 15 drive past hot springs. We do not want to leave, it’s simply heaven. The details and beauty are breathtaking at times. We are so thankful to have found this place. Thankful that someone like Darla looks after the Toad Hall Hotel in Arenal. We hope to return soon!

We stayed here on our trip around Costa Rica. The hotel is fantastic. We had a first floor room (2nd for USA!) that gave us stunning views over the valley and lake Arenal. Lovely host, Darla (and her dog) and friendly helpful staff. Most comfortable bed in two weeks in Costa Rica!

Toad Hall is adorable! It is a funky Costa Rican building in the best way. It feels like it might once have been a rambling house and is now a hotel with 5 (I think) distinct rooms and a large restaurant space. The common areas and gardens are beautiful. The rooms are clean and each one is unique. The American owner bought the property just 6 months ago and has been working on it constantly, so I'm sure it will only continue to get better! We loved the location between the town of Nuevo Arenal and the volcano, waking up with flocks of toucans, afternoons by the pool, and the sound of the frogs at night! The owner, Darlene, was happy to help us in any way she could. She went over and above to make sure the children in our group were happy. We stayed 5 nights in the king sized bedroom upstairs. My sister's family stayed in the Jungle suite.

We didn't actually stay at Toad Hall but rented a house down the road. We did however go there every day of our vacation eating most of our meals there. Darla and her staff are wonderful. She booked all our tours for us and went above and beyond, especially since we didn't stay there. We had such a wonderful time with them and will definitely stay here next time. Pura vida!
