We were staying near the Arenal dam and decided, one day, to continue our the road to see what we could find. After about thirty minutes we came to Toad Hall and pulled over for lunch. Perched on the side of a hill the little restaurant offers beautiful views. While enjoying some delicious fish tacos we got to see a variety of tropical birds. Truly a fortunate diversion.

Stopped at Toad Hall on our drive around lake Arenal. On first impression, it was a nice restaurant with great views of the lake. The food was basic. Not review worthy either way, however, our awful customer service experience here is. When we received our bill we realized we were overcharged. The prices on the menu did not match up with the prices on our check. When we pointed it out, to who we think was the owner, she was extremely aggressive, rude and confrontational to us. Without going into detail it was definitely one of the worst service experiences I’ve had and I am sorry to have supported a business where it is acceptable to treat your customers with such disgrace.

The manager, Jaime, is very friendly and the staff is nice. Breakfast was great. We watched different colorful birds while we ate.

We booked the hotel on Expedia, and spoke to the hotel several times before to understand on how to get there. When we arrived after an hour drive from the local airport, the owner told us that we made a mistake with the booking and that she couldn’t host us...and she said all this was our fault. Important to note she was drunk. We were lucky to find a room to the next hotel which was great: the Mansion.
