Stayed 4 nights in Toro Blanco. Reserved our room in June on the advise of our friend Gilbert who is a local Tico. Our room was clean and comfortable. Small kitchenette, AC, and hot water. Nice private patio by the beautiful pool which is lit up at night. My wife and I paid $60 US a night. Our neighbor said...

I stayed here for a few days of diving and loved it! Bright, clean rooms, lovely pool, and great patios for relaxing and having a bite to eat. The owner/manager was generous and attentive, he even gave me a lift to the dive shop in his golf cart. Three minute walk to the beach, and a great restaurant with pizza...

This hotel is a very very good bargain for the price. The room was always clean, had good AC and the staff were extremely friendly. I'm amazed that people have writen such bad reviews about the Toro Blanco. If you want a high end resort, then pay the extra money to stay at one and stop complaining. The Hotel sits...

This hotel is not luxury by any means, but has everything you should need. The rooms were clean and had a few little extras most don't, like a coffee pot, hot plate, microwave and kitchen sink. Also each room has a decent sized patio with a large table. The pool was clean and someone was around all the time. The...

My friend and I stayed at Toro Blanco for one week. Our first impression was good: clean and nice pool area with friendly staff. The room was ok, especially considering the low price. But what really impressed us was the staff. They were always really nice and friendly, but most of all, helpful. For example, we decided to rent a...

This was one of the hotels that partners with Rich Coast Diving, where my friend was diving. I am really picky with hotels, while she was on a tight budget. So when we saw the option of Toro Blanco, rated #1 on TripAdvisor and well-priced due to the Rich Coast discount, we were sold. I was left questioning how this...

My father and I stayed at Toro Blanco from Saturday to Tuesday in May 2013. It may have been the most unique and satisfying place I have ever stayed. It is only one block from the main street and only one block from the beach. I don't think there is a better location ANYWHERE in Coco. It's far enough away,...

This is a lovely place in a great location just a couple of minutes from the beach and town. The pool is really nice and the rooms good with a little kitchenette - we also loved the closed in balcony areas which were very roomy and private and great for hanging all our laundry around!! The only down side is...

This was my fourth time staying at Toro Blanco and each time is better than the last! The property is located in downtown Coco but when you enter the grounds, you feel you're in your own home. Leo is always available to help with whatever you need and greets you like family. The dogs (my favorite is Blanco), are the...
