Stayed here for a week as the hotel is owned by the same owners as CPI, a Spanish language school nearby. The staff is charming and helpful and there is a lovely pool, which is a great way to cool off, as the daytime temperatures can exceed 90 degrees. There is a good laundry service. The units are equipped with a kitchenette, which is convenient as there is a supermarket about a 10 minute walk away. The rates are very reasonable. A breakfast is included, although the choice is somewhat limited.

My wife and I just got home last night from Casas del Toro in Playa Flamingo and we are so happy we made this choice for our vacation. We usually choose 4 or 5 star all-inclusives but we have always found them sterile and lacking in any true local feel. My wife booked us into Casas del Toro and I originally had some trepidation as we didn't know for sure what we would find in this resort or the trip in general. What we experienced was an absolute delight from check-in to checkout wherever we went. Muni greeted us at reception and made us feel at home. Our room (#7) was clean, in good repair and spacious with a/c in the sitting area and bedroom. The grounds were beautiful, the pool big enough for laps and the included Costa Rican breakfast delicious. Everyone here is friendly, helpful and welcoming. The other guests are also friendly and happy to share tips about where to eat or visit and it's worth noting that many are repeat visitors. Ask Muni or Leo about places to eat (the local sodas were our favourite spots). We rented a golf cart (from Pablo at ECCR) instead of a car and it got us to all the neighbouring beaches and was MUCH more fun. The local bus also stops in front of Casas and it will take you to those places if you wish. I really have NO negatives that I can think of about our time in Costa Rica. If there was something not right it was a "first world problem"- suck it up. Thank you Muni, Leo, Laura, Deja, Isaac and everyone else at Casas del Toro. For the first time ever in our travels we plan to return.

I have just stayed with my family (group of 9). 6 comments on our stay: 1-) Upon check in, I found in the room the dirty cups of coffee of the previous customer (half way filled), and when I gave them to the Reception, Receptionist mentioned they were left because they “were in a hurry to give us the rooms”.... (Side comment we never pressure to have the rooms ready before the check in time, moreover is no excuse to receive a clean room upon check in...). 2-) we stayed for the New Year’s Eve dinner, confirmed weeks before the number of parties for the dinner. At dinner, food was served at different times (i.e, appetizers came first for some and late for other), drinks came after appetizers (after a friendly reminder) and before 22:00, without having ordered dessert, we were told the kitchen was closed and we had to pay.....this was our “lovely” New Year’s Eve dinner....Upon check out I informed the receptionist about the situation and her only comment was “que pena” (what a pity...). 3-) breakfast was not good, we have old tortillas served on the second day of our stay. 4-) sink in one of the rooms was dirty with grease/oil, from previous customer. 5-) they never charge the coffee in my room and my sisters ‘ room was never filled with coffee again, even if we had the cups. 6-) dirty pillows in my brother in laws room. I do not think they are prepared nor have a client service orientation. I would not recommend it, nor would come back.

We stayed here our first couple of nights when we arrived in Costa Rica this time, we have friends who live outside of Huacas and wanted a place close by. Upon arriving we were immediately impressed by the grounds, the check in was smooth and our room was excellent. The restaurant serves a free breakfast every morning and we had lunch there one day. The location is great only a little over a mile to playa flamingo which boast one of the most beautiful sunsets you'll experience.

Casas del Toro is a jewel among the various places to stay in the Flamingo beach area. When my son found out we were traveling to Costa Rica again, the first thing he said was, "We're going back to Casas del Toro, right?" The grounds are beautiful and tranquil and exude "Pura Vida!" We loved relaxing in the hammocks or by the pool after the beach. Our suite was immaculate and well appointed for a very restful night's sleep. We enjoyed the breakfast included with our stay each morning that featured typical dishes. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly and the service is excellent. We ate at the restaurant for lunch and dinner and the food quality was exceptional. We'll be back ... again!

I stayed here late January. Room was excellent value for money. 2 beds and nice large newly redone in tile bathroom with large shower. Had small anteroom with table for 2 coffee maker and fridge. Air conditioning worked well. The grounds are fantastic. Way more than you would expect for this price. Gated grounds with night watchman- Christopher- who is very friendly and helpful. The grounds have beautiful florals all around and has beautiful pool area with lots of seating and padded chaise loungers. There is a dining area for breakfast that is included- buffet style with juice, pancakes, scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, fresh fruit and and excellent waiter who comes around and fills your coffee cup. Christopher is an excellent waiter. There is also a small bar area and open patio where you can have a drink and enjoy a little music. No bugs on the patio and you can sit outside without a jacket and feel a bit of a breeze. There is a much larger pool on the other side of the complex that is amazing for size and has seating and a shade shelter and picnic tables that guests can use. You can order dinner there- we did not eat there. There is fresh water in the office available all day and evening. They also have snacks, chips, pop, juice, wine in a little store in the office that you can buy. You would NEVER guess all the amenities for the price! All the for $98 a night in January. It is about 2-3 KM from the beach, but they will help you arrange taxis. Gretal was super helpful and friendly. Christopher a great waiter and all the staff soooo friendly.

We rented a small studio apartment for a few days while doing some diving in Playa Flamingo. As we drove through the gates, we saw a beautifully landscaped hideaway. The property has two pools, loads of outdoor seating space (including hammocks and a padded swing), a lovely open-air restaurant and an open-air breakfast area. The apartment we rented came fully-equipped - full-size refrigerator, small stove, microwave, coffee maker. The unit was air-conditioned and had 2 ceiling fans. Our unit (#6) had a double bed and a twin in the small ‘bedroom’ but both were very comfortable and the sheets were amazingly soft. Hot water for the shower was a bit of an issue; loads of it in the early morning, but in the afternoons, not so much. But not enough of a negative to take away from the lovely setting and attentive staff. The breakfast each day (included in our package) was quite good. I also had an excellent salad in the restaurant that was so fresh I would swear it was picked just for me! Security is very good - almost too good. You usually have to tell the front desk when you are leaving so they will open the gate. Coming back, there is a button on the wall to press so the gate will open. I only wish there were a massage service on site. This place certainly feels like a spa retreat, and a massage would have been heavenly.

My wife and I were in the area doing some diving and due to some issues at the AirBnB we had selected, we quickly looked for another place and cound Casas del Toro and Jorge! Jorge was fantastic in answering all of our questions over the phone and trying to make sure we were taken care of. We chose the suite apartment - essentially a bedroom, living area, kitchen and bathroom. It was perfect for us. There was plenty of storage for all our scuba gear and plenty of room left to live. The beds were very comfy and the A/C and fans worked great to keep the place cool! They provide breakfast which was typical CR fare with a few other items thrown in. All was extremely good! The grounds are immaculate and beautiful - plants, flowers, fountains and paths everywhere! Truly a paradise! We will be back and highly recommend checking-into Casas del Toro. It's just outside of the main Flamingo town, but it's still really close to everything!
