The location of the eco lodge is beautiful with views of the volcano and surrounding countryside. The service was excellent, everyone friendly and helpful, especially Eric the bartender. The food was fresh and well prepared. What puts this lodge out of the 4 or 5 star category are the common areas and the pool. The pool especially was a disappointment.... More

We were fortunate enough to visit Totoco Eco-Lodge for a few days in Nov. On arrival we realized that this was going to be awesome! We were greeted by friendly, happy staff... We were given the freshest juice on arrival while someone was showing us around. Our bungalow was amazing and to top it off there was an incredible sunset... More

We spent 2 nights at Totoco in Casa Istiana. The place is beautiful and the view on Volcano Concepcion is amazing. Staff was really nice and smiling which was great. Breakfast was really good. Now, ecotourism is all over but when you think this place has been built 10 years ago it is impressive. Overall a really nice experience and... More

The most beautiful magical resort ever been to. Spacious rooms with astonishing views. The food was amazing and the staff very helpful. We highly recommend to stay here! Some remarks: Some things were a bit out dated like the pillows at the pool, the bamboo could use a cut,... but these are minor details. The horse trip wasn't worth it.... More

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!

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... More

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... More
