A spectacular property run by a fabulous staff. The bungalow was very comfortable and the dinning area was a lovely place to sit and enjoy the views. We did a beautiful guided hike to the coffee Finca which we would definitely recommend. This hotel is a wonderful operation and we were very happy to support it!

Pros- Good view Great food Nice bar/ restaurant and chill area Friendly staff Cons- 30 minute walk up a steep hill to get to and from town Many bugs in the rooms Roof leaked onto the bedside table and wrecked my phone. Turned into an expensive stay.

Beautiful location with view of Concepcion. The food was excellent and cooked to order in most cases. The staff were attentive and helpful A bit remote down a rough road but that is part of the appeal.

We had a wonderful experience at Totoco- it's a very difficult concept to get right, and as long as you're relaxed, flexible, and don't mind the jungle, you'll have an amazing time. We brought our two kids ( who are plucky at 12 and 13), and they definitely enjoyed the view, the pool (with a few dead caterpillars at the...

From the moment we arrived at Tocoto we knew we had made the right choice. The view of the Volcano was spectacular. The open Palapa and lobby seating area give you a feeling of being one with nature. The construction of the Palapa is a peace of art. After drinking a fresh juice which is offered to you upon arrival...

We stayed 3 nights in July and rented Casa Istian the house on the property. The views were amazing from the roof top deck and the house was so spacious. The compost toilets, critters in the house and being somewhat isolated are mere distractions compared to the absolute quietness and beauty you will experience here. The food was fresh, healthy...

We really loved the team at Totoco. Eric was very helpful and informative. We arrived a little late since we missed the earlier ferry, and still had the cooks accommodate us for dinner, which was really nice of them. He carried all of our luggages himself to our rooms. At check out, the founder introduced himself, he was a pleasure...

I was very excited booking this trip from the US. The website and previous reviews were glowing. Not to mention the user posted photos. What I didn't realize was, all the beautiful user photos and very obviously the website were all of a beautiful lodge that once existed. When you first arrive the lodge, you are greeted with the Lodges...
