Lovely place with really nice people managing it. Mega plus for the fresh coffee every morning :) 5min to the beach with the best view a bit up the hill. We can highly recommend Casa MarBella if you want a relax holiday. The restaurant next to the place is really good as well.

We had a fantastic time at Casa Marbella! Andre and Jessie are great hosts, and did everything to make sure our stay was the best it could be. We particularly appreciated the restaurant recommendations, making it super easy to book transportation (ATVs and taxis), giving directions. What a treat to watch the sunset from the infinity pool! The morning coffee...

My wife and I stayed at Casa Marbella for our honeymoon in early March 2017. The owners were so helpful and always responded promtly while I was planning the trip. All of my questions and concerns were answered before we left and while we were there the owners were increadibly helpful in setting up activities and rentals. We were able...

We stayed at Casa Marbella during our stay in Santa Teresa - our first visit. The single rooms were booked so we went for the 3 bedroom condo on top floor and we're happy it worked out that way. We practically lived on the large balcony from having early morning coffee and reading, a cocktail in the evenings or taking...

This was our first vacation in Costa Rica, and Santa Teresa is a great place if you are adventurous and in pretty good shape. Casa Marbella is close to the beach and surfing and some very nice restaurants. We rented a 4-wheeler and made some side trips to go ziplining and visit Cabo Blanco Nature Preserve. The hotel is small,...

This was our first time to Santa Teresa. As 55+ travellers we knew we may be a bit out of our element with all the young surfer/ yoga folks, but I was determined to see as many different areas of Costa Rica as possible. The area is beautiful...the beaches stunning. We couldn't have found a better place to stay. Casa...

Where to start....this place is a wonderful quiet paradise yet within a very short walk to all the restaurants and the beach. The views are out of this world, and watching the sun set and rise over the pool is something you would never get tired of. The owners, Andre and Jesse, are so friendly and helpful. The room was...

We had one of the suites (traveling with 4 children) and it was large and very pretty, is a very good value and has the most amazing views. Staff is super great and I would recommend staying here. Note though, it is not on the water. However, it's only a 5 - 10 minute walk to the beach. We stayed...

We lucked out in our February visit. We ( a couple) were upgraded to a suite with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Obviously we didn't need all that but the sensation of space and the private balcony with sea views gave an agreeable sense of luxury. The central pool is wisely open only between 9 and 9. In any case...

Hello Kevin. Thank you so much for the review. We are happy to know that you have enjoyed the upgrade to our Condo and that you find our place to be central to stores and restaurant. We do agree that the hotel hill is pretty steep but we wouldn't be able to get such great views if it wasn't for...
