Great B&B on the water in the village. We had 2 rooms - one for my husband and I, and the other for my teens (18 and 15). The rooms were perfect for the price. I would recommend trying to get an upstairs room facing the water. The breakfasts were delicious, with fresh fruit and pancakes one day, and eggs,... More

We were in Tortuguero with our friend family for 2 nights in this place and we were happy about the place and its breakfast ;-) we also had morning tour with Roberto who was fantastic and showed us many things which impressed us a lot. The rest of the staff was also very friendly and helpful.

Casa Marbella was perfect for our little family (my husband, 3 year old daughter & twin 1.5 year old sons). It's very close to the boat landing where the water taxi arrives and an easy walk to everything in down. They offer boat tours of the national park, which we went on one morning. My favorite part about the hotel... More

Angie arranged our pick-up from the airstrip for an early AM arrival, boat was there waiting. Very clean, helpful staff. Fresh fruit with breakfast was delicious. No air conditioning so it was hot but it appeared none of the hotels have A/C.

Tortuguero is definitly the place in Costa Rica not to be missed! Beautuful nature and cute village with no cars! Marbella was a great place to stay, we enjoyed our time there a lot. Room was very clean and the beds sooo comfortable. Breakfast was delicous on a nice terrace facing the river. We went on a boat tour with... More

Brilliant clean rooms with warm showers. Breakfast was good - alternating between toasts and eggs and pancakes with lots of fruit. A lovely 'terrace' to watch the world go by (or the rain come down!). Great location at the quieter end of the street, but still close to tours. MAke sure you take out the free canoe to do your...

We arrived by air very early in the morning. Case Marbella had arranged for a water taxi to pick us up and bring us to it's dock. Even though we arrived hours before normal check in, our room was ready and coffee was available. Throughout our stay, staff, from the owner on down, were pleasant, attentive and professional. We took... More

Truly a comfortable, relaxing, and home away from home experience. The hotel is clean, quiet, and accommodating 1)Private docks, so Lancha drops you off right at Casa Marbella 2)Nadia and rest of the staff made extremely delicious breakfast each morning. 3)The patio is just relaxing to sit and watch the water and Lancha's go by. 4)Wi-Fi was on/off .. just...

We ordered 2 nights in Casa Marbella, following the excellent reviews in tripadvisor. Maybe we were unlucky, but: 1) The owner, Deryl, was not there. 2) We got a super small room. The day was very hot and the fan was not working very well (no condition-air) so we felt that we could hardly breath. My boyfriend was a bit... More

We spent 3 nights at Casa Marbella with our 2 year old. Everything was great, from the very friendly and helpful people who run it to the amazing breakfast included in the price. The location is very convenient if you want to stay in tortuguero village, only 100m from where the boat leaves you. Being in town means that you... More
