Enchanting spot on the side of the road, do not let the exterior throw you off. We stayed in jungle suite which offered fabulous views of lake Arenal. Birds a plenty... lots of hummingbirds. Relaxation is the prime directive... kick back with a cold Bohemia and your book in the hammock poolside.

As a long term traveler with motorbike I look for my budget. The Rizz room (hostel) is very simple with two beds. It is bright with a beautiful view, a door opens directly into the green. The toilet is a bit away, at the restaurant. The food was very good. Edwin and his staff are very helpful and friendly. I... More

I stayed 3 nights at Toad Hall & had a great time. The hotel grounds are beautiful with a nice garden, swimming pool, fantastic views over the lake and forest, & a restaurant with tasty food. The hotel is amazing but the best part is the hosts who greeted me, Edwin & Milton. They were both very helpful in every... More

This place was great as my girlfriend and I visited for a night. We were upgraded a room for no charge. The owner was the nicest guy around and the view was absolutely beautiful. For breakfast I had pintos and eggs and it was delicious. I would most definitely visit again and would recommend all my friends to stay here.

What a fabulous find! This hotel is just gorgeous with its beautiful elevated view of the lake and horizon swimming pool with a king size bed poolside! Our cabina is very arty and comfortable with towel art on the bed looking over a very well manicured tropical garden. The hosts are very friendly and speak very good English which is... More

...we should have known! Humming birds, parrots, lake view from an elevated spot. We only had lunch but the location, the rooms, the friendly staff and the atmosphere were lovely and inviting. There is a great pool next to the rooms. It's only 20 min. away from the touristy La Fortuna and the vulcano. I hope to come back one... More

We stayed in Toad Hall hotel for 3 nights. The new owners started only 2 months ago, and created a relaxing environment with a very friendly staff. They'll help you out in any possible way, planning out an activity in this beautifull area of Costa Rica. We've stayed in the jungle suite, which has a perfect view on the jungle... More

DON'T STAY HERE!! I had the worst customer service experience. Got there thinking I would enjoy the view and the pool, but guess what, the pool had no water. Strike one! It smelled like smoke all over their room! Strike two!! Their website said we would get a fully stocked kitchen. Nope, there were no pots and pans and the... More

Thank goodness we stumbled upon Toad Hall for lunch, it was a highlight of our trip. We were on our way to La Fortuna when we saw all the signs in the road. I guess there are new owners & a new staff? Their passion is very apparent in everything from the rooms to the grounds to the menu to... More
