From our arrival to our "sad" goodbye we were in love with Toad Hall. We stayed for 5 nights in the "Hacienda" and 3 nights in the "Jungle Suite".........we were only supposed to be there for 4 nights total! Jeff and Lidia are the salt of the earth (as well as their friendly staff). We met people from all over the world and with only a few rooms (sanctuaries), you get to know all the area before you start driving.........Oh, speaking of driving, take a shuttle from SJO and rent a car at Alamo in La Fortuna (we left a laptop on a shuttle and they transferred it to Alamo for us). I called on Friday and asked if we could keep the Jeep until Tuesday and without hesitation "No problem!" DON'T ASK JEFF TO TRANSLATE FOR YOU.......GO WITH LIDIA! Honor system with drinks cooler, just let the kitchen know and they keep track if someone is not at the bar. I am British, was a flight attendant and have vacationed many tropical locations but if you have never been to Toad Hall you have missed out! The prices on local artistic items can not be beat for prices (no pressure sales) and OMG they have an ice cream pop freezer too! You can't miss the signs from either direction.....we have pics :) The ducks in the pool area are an experience not to miss, we got worried when they flew to the lake for the day. I am posting pictures of them....they don't have names so I nicknamed them "Whacky & Quaky". Oh, I left my "NACHOS RULE" shorts for Jeff and do IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII have a picture to post :P We went to see all areas to consider and decide which area to purchase and never left where it felt home. Miss you guys! We'll be back, still keeping in touch with the guests and wish you the best with your future endeavors if we don't see ya soon! Julie & Don Diego Montemayor
