we stayed in the cabinas for 1 night only as part of the trip to Tortuguero. the cabina we stayed in had 2 rooms with 3 beds in total, and a bathroom. there wasa communal kitchenette with fridge where we vere able to leave our perishable foods. Tortuguero is tiny, literally only one street, but this is not why people... More

Enjoyed my stay here. My daughter and I stayed for 3 nights and found it very relaxing. Internet service was very slow but we didn't go to Tortuguero for WiFi! Breakfast was good and hearty with delicious fresh fruit and different from day to day-pancakes one day and scrambled eggs the next...we missed our third day's breakfast to catch 5:30... More

A month before arriving we mailed to make a reservation in Casa Marbella. We received a lot of helpful information about Costa Rica, Tortuguero and how to get there by email. Casa Marbella is located next to the river of Tortuguero. So bring your camero to spot herons, iguanas, montezuma's, ... The rooms are not oversized, but clean. Staff is... More

Based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, we used Casa Marbella as our base for Tortuguero, and we did not regret it. The rooms are simple and basic, but very spacious. The service is good, the personnel does its best to help. The breakfast was of good quality. We also did an early morning boat tour with them. Our guide Roberto... More

Rooms by the front street are a little noisy so if you're a light sleeper you should get the rooms away from the street which are a little more but not much. Breakfast was great. Tortuguero is quite small... the canal tour is worth it... the night walking tour I'd say wasn't but guess depends on how much you see.... More

Five star village life. Along el rio you can see upscale, expensive lodges but if you want a real taste of Tortuguero, Costa Rica village life, stay at Casa Marbella. I was leading a group of Sierra Club members and this is our 10th plus time staying at the Casa. We take up all the rooms and also use a... More

The location of this b&b near the center of Tortuguero Village makes it an ideal base for exploring the town, the national park and the beaches. The entire staff were wonderful, friendly, at ease, helpful. Based on other reviews, we requested one of the upstairs "superior" rooms, but none were available, so we took the "family" room on the ground... More

If I compare this B&B with others I have stayed at in remote locations, it gets a 5/5. The rooms (and we saw a couple because when they are empty the doors are left open), are all VERY clean, and spacious enough with private bathrooms that have nice sized showers. While the rooms are modestly decorated, they include everything you... More

I recommend Casa Marbella for your stay in Tortuguero if you are interested in a hotel with modest sleeping accommodations but a great location, staff, breakfast, and price. The rooms were nothing special, but the outdoor space and friendly, helpful staff made up for this drawback. Casa Marbella has a great, large deck that allows you to admire the Tortuguero... More
