My girlfriend and I stayed here for a couple of days during our visit to Costa Rica and could not have been happier! We were met by Jeff and Lydia as we drove up (They were hard at work painting one of the exterior walls) and were given a short tour of the property. We were then shown into the room we had originally booked, I believe it was called the "Casa Cabina". It was wonderful and had its front door open to the gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the jungle. It also had a really cool open shower made of rocks and stone. Lydia said there was another room available and we could stay in any one we chose! So we went to check out the other suite called the "Jungle Suite". It is directly above the bar and has and entire wall of screens that overlooks the jungle. Both of the casitas were very cool, but we chose the Jungle Suite. Everyone at Toad Hall is wonderful. The bar/restaurant has great food and drinks and is reasonably priced. We talked to Lydia about where to go and what to do and she had great advice every time. She recommended Gingerbread for dinner and it was one of the better meals I have ever had, although it was VERY expensive ($110 for a shared appetizer, salad, entrée, and dessert) but we both thought it was well worth it. We also did the Sky Adventures hike and zipline tour which was amazing. It really is a must do. Places all seem to close around 6pm so be prepared if you like to eat after that (like I do). Luckily we had a fridge, stove, and dishes (no microwave) to make late night snacks a possibility. Toad hall itself is in between La Fortuna and Nuevo Arenal and is about a 20-25 minute drive to La Fortuna and about 15 minutes to Nuevo Arenal. Toad Hall has a lot of things you might need, but the closest grocery store is in Nuevo Arenal as well as the closest ATM. You could get away with staying only at Toad Hall without a car and maybe taking the bus to town every few days, but I would highly recommend having a car when staying here. We will definitely be back to this place!
