We stopped at Toad Hall Resturant after zip lining at Arenal and traveling to the coast. Food was so delicious and very favorful! Very authentic Costa Rican meal! Also breath taking view of Arenal Lake and moutains.

This hotel is a small boutique hotel that caters to your every need. The staff was amazing and so was the property. I was not disappointed about anything, which is saying something. I would not hesitate to recommend Toad Hall and will definitely go back. On a side note I highly recommend the white water rafting with Wave Expeditions!

We decided to stay the night and they gave us a great room and told us to treat the downstairs like our home. I had a great talk with the owner while... More

The next day, Edwin and Milton mentioned that if you would like to move back to the original room that you paid for, they would gladly move all of your belongings. Katie said... More

Enchanting spot on the side of the road, do not let the exterior throw you off. We stayed in jungle suite which offered fabulous views of lake Arenal. Birds a plenty... lots of hummingbirds. Relaxation is the prime directive... kick back with a cold Bohemia and your book in the hammock poolside.

As a long term traveler with motorbike I look for my budget. The Rizz room (hostel) is very simple with two beds. It is bright with a beautiful view, a door opens directly into the green. The toilet is a bit away, at the restaurant. The food was very good. Edwin and his staff are very helpful and friendly. I... More

This place was great as my girlfriend and I visited for a night. We were upgraded a room for no charge. The owner was the nicest guy around and the view was absolutely beautiful. For breakfast I had pintos and eggs and it was delicious. I would most definitely visit again and would recommend all my friends to stay here.
