Huge swimming-pool, clean and spacious appartment, good location : beach and restaurant area are at a few minutes walking.

Kitchen in the apartment is simple but efficient.

Our Host Leo is very friendly and offer us a true expresso for breakfast ¡¡¡

All our family loved this place.

A very good value for money for family in Costa Rica

See you soon

I, my wife, and our ten-year-old spent three nights at Toro Blanco after stumbling on it in Playa del Coco. Our upstairs room was clean and had a double and single, with a spacious balcony with a couple rocking chairs and a dining table at which we could play cards at night. Had TV with cable (great for Olympics) and powerful A/C unit. Leo was great, super with my daughter, and she loved playing with the dogs. Spent a lot of time in the great pool, and other tenants were friendly. Only drawback was music from nearby hotel until late, but we were beat enough that it didn't matter much. Highly recommend if you're doing Playa del Coco with kids and want some amenities.

The whole "picture" of this hotel is perfect. Our hosts were so welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean and well equipped. It was such a treat to have your own patio/balcony area to enjoy the music and the pool when you came back from a hot day of touring. I cannot say enough about the warm and friendly feeling you get as soon as you open the gate. Absolutely loved it and am planning a return trip next year!!!

Where to start....
We stayed here for a month, we spent a whole day checking out cabanas and hotels in Coco.
Torolanco was a little bit more expensive ( we are backpackers and on a budget) but the small step in price was worth the big step up in quality.

The pool and comunal area are idyllic with beautifyul lighting by the pool , relaxing lounge music and a bar in the swimming pool .
The rooms are super clean ( plus the cleaning lady is coming everyday) they change your towels and linen as much as you ask.
The aircon is quite and very strong.
The location is the best in Coco, 25m from the beach, 24h supermarket accross the street and just off the main street so you are not bothered by the noise from the bars.

Leo and Frederika ( the owners) from Italy are so kind and hospitable ,sharing cake and fruit salad with us , sometimes even a pre dinner drink.
They even remenber my girlfriend birthday and left a gift on the terrace for her.

We really felt at home and the only negative point we can think of is we have to leave!

We would not recomend this place to you but say it's the only place you should consider to stay in Coco.

So thank you again Leo and Frederika for everything, we can't wait to come back.

Digby and Sophie

We loved the Toro Blanco Resort. We traveled with our daughter, and with the hotel being so close to the city center, we felt comfortable running an errand while she relaxed at the hotel. The convenient location, cleanliness, friendly owners....proximity to Everything- we couldn't have been more satisfied with our hotel. We felt very welcome and "at home"!

We wanted to take a 10 year old to Costa Rica but stay "local" to give a non-resort view. We had an A/C issue first day and room was changed immediately. Loved the pool area and the proximity to beach and main drag. Owners are very congenial and happy. They were very flexible as we were traveling on the fly. Rooms were cute and just fine. We had a kitchenette which was useful.

We would go back anytime. I've stayed in many of the Costa rican resorts but this was my favorite stay and we didn't have to deal with the Pura Vida attitude.

Room Tip: I would pick the first floor room around the pool if you have children. The bigger rooms are in bac...

Warm friendly service 24 hrs. The couple that owns toro blanco welcomed me with open arms. I wouldn't stay anywhere else here. Always very clean. Invited me to family dinners. Arranged trips away from townsite for other guests. Invite me to join family dinners, always offered coffee in the morning or their wine/drinks/coffee/desserts in the evening. Great clean refreshing pool. 20 steps to the beach. Friendly helpful trustworthy gate watchman after dark until AM.
