While we did not stay at this hotel, we did arrange our early morning canal tour with them and Roberto. We made this decision because the Casa Marbella boat is smaller (sits 6 plus the guide) than the boats used by the bigger lodges and they use an electric motor in addition to a large outboard. We were very pleased... More

We only stayed for one night (that was long enough) The location is great, the deck is good for chilling and watching boats pass by. Our room was average, uncomfortable bed, minimally furnished. We did not get to enjoy our breakfast because we went for their boat tour at 6 am and despite the promise that we will be back... More

We stayed for two nights and really liked the place. Our room was on the seaside and we really enjoyed having breakfast on the river deck or just sitting there watching the scenery. Tortuguero was one of our favorite places in Costa Rica and the Casa Marbella contributed to that. The super silent motorboat tour in the morning was great,... More

My husband and I stayed at Casa Marbella for two nights. Our room was bright and airy and came with two fans (a must in the heat and humidity). The noise from the street was not a problem- the town quiets down early in the evening. The Wi-Fi was a bit slow, but free. The staff members were incredibly helpful... More

. It's a lovely b&b on the water. Spent a couple of evenings on their deck, watching the water. Great location in town, near cafes and restaurants, and the entrance to the the park. Good guided trips. Great breakfasts. Accommodating and helpful staff. Very clean. A wonderful place!

Clean, friendly little place, overlooking the river. Breakfast was good, different both mornings we stayed. In the centre of the little village, where you could mix with the locals who were all friendly. Take a boat ride on the river where you will see lots of wildlife. 2 nights was just enough as there is not a lot to do... More

The rooms were small but incredibly clean - I think they cleaned the room twice a day. We thought we would get hot with nothing but a fan but found ourselves almost chilly in the middle of the night. The free breakfast on the deck every morning was very nice, it was different each day and was prepared fresh/hot and... More

Stayed for 2 nights with 2 adults and one child. It's a lovely b&b on the water. Great location in the middle of town, near all the cafes and restaurants, and a 5 minute walk to the entrance to the park. Upper rooms are light and airy and the one looking over the river has the best view, and they're... More

It's a good place to stay. Especially the view from the little dock. You can see the river and the boats.. lovely! The rooms where fine, with a fan and a proper bed. What I really liked about this place, was that it was really clean; every day nicely folded towels and toilet paper. Ain't that cute?

Fabulous location with a lovely dock to chill out overlooking the water. Breakfast served on the dock which is included was amazing, pancakes one day, scrambled eggs another day plus a big plate of fruit. Bargain boat trip on electric boat booked through here highly recommended. Clean rooms if a little hot at night
