We were booked to spend two nights here but unfortunately the owner had double booked, so booked us into another place nearby for the first night, then we moved here for the second night. Not a major problem and nice that he acknowledged the error and sorted alternative accommodation. This place is in a lovely location by the water, very... More

For the price, this was great accommodation. We paid a little more than the basic price and had a lovely, bright room upstairs with 5 windows. A perfect place to unwind. The owner Daryl, suggests that 2 nights stay are sufficient which is true if you have limited time and want to visit other places in Costa Rica. However we... More

Casa Marbella is located close to the main landing which is very convenient. It is a beautiful house and we had a nice, bright room which was very clean, with a lot of place for our luggage and good beds. Cleaned everyday with fresh towels which is nice when the weather is very humid. Breakfast is included. Good value for... More

While enjoying a kayaking vacation with Seascape Kayak Tours, our stay in Tortuguero was hosted at Casa Marbella. The Tortuguero village is unique vacation destination. Case Marbella is well situated in the community. The rooms are clean and well kept. Staff is friendly. Imagine my surprise when it was discovered, through casual conversation, that the owner was familiar with the... More

The hotel is situated very close to where the boats deliver you to the village. There is a concrete walkways through the village that takes you straight to the hotel. The rooms are simple and clean, but sufficient. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast (which is included) is delicious consisting of two course courses - fruit followed... More

We enjoyed the spacious room, the view from the porch, the guided tour, the yummy breakfasts, the heated shower, the creatively folded towels, meeting other guests, and especially the free canoe. We wish to return.

Nice hotel on the waterfront (though they probably all are in Tortuguero) with a room efficient for 5 of us (wife and three children). The staff was great, especially Daryl Loth, the proprietor, who always made sure we had everything to please us. The tour offered from the hotel was really enjoyable. The price was great. If I ever I... More

Out of all the places we stayed in Costa Rica, Casa Marbella was definitely the place where we got the most value for our money. +Good location in the middle of the village. +Clean rooms. +Great service. +Great breakfast. +The owner offers an extremely good boat tour of the rainforest. +Reasonable price

Everything about the Casa is good. Location, staff, rooms... They change linen and towels everyday, which is very convenient when it's so wet (simply amazing how they fold them in all kinds of shapes, even an alligator!!!). Breakfast just by the river (or channel, or lake, whatever it is) is superb. I don't give the 'excellent' rate because they told... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Casa Marbella - nice clean rooms with hot showers, right by the canal. The B&B is conveniently located, the breakfast was super yummy, and the price was a steal for what we were getting. I wish I could have stayed longer at Tortuguero!
