We went to Toad Hall really before they were open; due to new ownership. I cannot say how the service there is but I can tell you I would consider a stay; it is so quaint and just lovely. the rooms are unique and warm; staff bent over backward to accommodate. The scenery is absolutely breath taking; I would stay...

I went to see the place. Great people, nice service, nice pool, nice mountain view. Food, beers, people to chat, and near the Volcan. In the same road, various Km away, you can see Pisotes. Pisotes are pacific animals that lives there, they only walk on the road sides and are good for taking pictures of something new to see....

This hotel was actually the highlight of our trip. Hands down the most tranquil spot in Costa Rica. I would recommend staying here with a few caveats. First of all, do NOT book on the website www.toadhallhotelboutique.com/. This is an old website. The correct site for the absolutely beautiful and worth it hotel http://www.toadhallhotel.com/ I wish somebody had told us...

Stop in at Toad Hall and fall in love with this quirky little hotel/hostel/bar/coffee shop. The big toad with the top hat in hand greets you in the parking lot. The propery is interesting. The pool is a plus. The coffee was hand ground in and old iron crank coffee grinder. Yum.

I wish I could rate Toad Hall higher but based on my experience, I simply cannot. My friend and I arrived at Toad Hall in the evening for a 2-night stay in Arenal. The website states that the hotel is located 25 minutes from Arenal, but really, it is more like 40 minutes. Unless you are driving by car, please...

We didn't stay there but we wished we had... We stopped by to check it out and ended up staying the entire evening due to the friendliest people in site. We explored the hotel which is beautiful. We ate lunch and enjoyed some beers while enjoying the company of the host. You can see the lake and enjoy the pool...

Booked the Jungle suite, the staff made a mistake so they gave us the house as compensation. Outstanding!! Next day, moved to jungle suit which is magical, great nature and Lake Arenal views with trees full of birds. Staff was very polite and warm. Would go for a whole month if I could!

Found Toad Hall by chance when the road to la Fortuna was blocked, ended up staying for three nights. A real highlight of our trip, the rooms and atmosphere are just what we hoped for in a trip to CR, a great view of the lake and lots of birds to entertain while having a morning coffee.

My girlfriend and I stayed here in April, and our stay here was far and away the highlight of our trip. We also spent some time at Nayara (a world class hotel, rated one of the very best in the world on this very site), where I was officiating a wedding, and we were so much happier at Toad Hall....
