5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed with my family in a family room with space for 5 people. It was clean and I got nothing to complain about. You get good value for the money. It is not a 5-star hotel/lodge but it's one of the best B&B I've ever been to. The service is great. You will hear people talking on the street... More

This place is really a pearl in Tortuguero. Simple but very priceworth. The staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast included, simple but good and tasteful. The family who owns the place is really nice. Casa Marbella also have tours in the national park which I can recommend. The guides have good knowledge of the nature. I have nothing to complain... More

We had read so many good comments about Casa Marbella that we decided to book 2 nights here. We didn't regret it at all!! The room was nice, clean, breakfast very good, service really good too! The terrace with the river view is outstanding, you can just grab a beer at the supermarket and enjoy it there!

Ok..5 visits/stays and I'm still planning another in a couple-3 months. Simply stated Daryl Loth runs a clean, safe, comfortable and friendly B&B. He makes it a point to meet with each person sharing his endless knowledge about the town and making them feel as welcome as possible. Without a doubt it's wonderful to rise to the smell of coffee,... More

Casa Marbella is located right in Tortuguero. There is not much to the town but everything is within walking distance. We arrived by water taxi from the airport just in time for breakfast. Our breakfasts for the days we were there were pancakes the first day and eggs and toast the next. It was accompanied by fruit, juice and coffee.... More

We were very lucky that we found Casa Marbella as it was one of the best accomodations during our whole three-month trip. The room was beautiful, bright and clean. And even as a budget traveller it is affordable to stay there. It is a very welcome relief from a usual hostel!

Mar Bella B&B faces the main street of Tortuguero with its backside on the lagoon. The rooms are very clean and pleasant and the deck is a great place to hang-out. Its BYOB, but glasses and a fridge are provided. Breakfast on the deck is a treat. Daryl, the owner, is a Canadian biologist who first came to Tortuguero as... More

I first want to say, that we loved this hotel. The rooms were elegant and clean, the breakfast was delicious, the tours were well organized, and the women who worked there were absolutely amazing. However, the problem lied with the owner. We made our reservations about a week in advance while we were traveling and got a confirmation email explaining... More

We stayed at Casa Marbella 2 nights (I don't suggest to stay in Tortuguero more than that to be honest) and we liked it. The room was basic but very clean and had all we needed. The hotel is located in the middle of town (unlike the most swanky hotels which are a few minutes away by boat, as I... More
