First off just let me say if you are looking for a five star hotel in Tortoguero it's probably not the place for you. This hotel is right in the middle of town on the canal and the main street. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Not only did the lady at the front desk help us set up... More

We absolutely loved it!! The room we stayed in was tastefully furnished, clean and quiet, with view on the Tortuguero river. The staff was very helpful with booking tours and activities. We did a canoe tour in the National park with tour guide Victor, he was very nice and passionate about nature and wildlife that Tortuguero has to offer. The... More

Beautiful home, wonderful staff, excellent tour guide, extremely knowledgable and helpful owners. The terrace on the waterfront and breakfast were added bonuses. I will stay here the next time I visit Tortuguero.

Great place to stay when you are in Tortuguero. They offer nice tours like on canoe and have probably the greatest terrass with a view over the river what most (all ?) other casas don't have. The breakfast is simple but good with fresh fruits and juice and pancakes.

Really enjoyed staying at Casa Marbella. The room was clean and comfortable if a little petite but was very good value for money. We arranged all our tours through the hotel and they were great, our guide Roberto was really friendly, very knowledgable and spoke very good English. Breakfast by the river was also lovely - fresh fruit, juice, eggs... More

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
