...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

Milton, Sarah and Doug welcomed us so warmly when we arrived. Doug and Sarah are new owners with a lot of enthusiasm and an excellent management team. We had an excellent stay in the Jungle Suite overlooking Lake Arenal. The group are good friends and we can't wait to see them all again when we come back.
