Overlooking sea from hill above Santa Teresa. Brilliant staff, wonderful design and real sense of care about the place. Helps too that it has the best yoga platform you can imagine. And only 5 minute walk to the town and sea.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days and loved every moment of it. We will definitely return. The hotel had everything we wanted. Excellent pool, friendly staff. Large and spacious room. We loved the fact that the owners came and introduced themselves and checked regularly if everything was ok and that we had all we wanted. Our rooms were... More

We just spent a really relaxing week at Casa Marbella with our two children, aged 10 and 8, staying in one of the apartments. The hotel had been highly recommended, and rightly so. It is in a beautiful location with stunning views over the jungle and sea. On several occasions we saw monkeys from our balcony. We all loved the... More

I stayed at Casa Marbella as a part of a yoga retreat and loved everything about it. Nestled inbetween the ocean and tropical forrest, you have the best of two worlds: a stunning view and lovely wildlife right outside your window. The yoga deck has spectacular views and how cool is it to practice yoga right next to trees filled... More

Most peaceful place to stay with an amazing pool and even more amazing view. We highly recommend this place and the town of Santa Teresa. Breakfast and dinner at Brisas de Mar just a few steps away is an added plus to staying at Casa Marbella. We will be back!

Very clean, safe, and relaxing place. Located up the hill a bit along the main drag in Santa Teresa so you do not have to deal with the sounds of the noisy ATV's flying down the main road. The location was very convenient and the place was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very romantic atmosphere! The location... More

Our Family just returned from two weeks at Casa MarBella. On all of our previous family vacations we have rented private homes and I was a little nervous about giving up the privacy of a single family house and staying in a (albeit small) hotel. We were familiar with the area and Casa MarBella was close to where we had... More

Wow, this hotel was exactly what we were looking for and more. It was extremely relaxing, had a great view of the jungle and ocean, and the rooms were great. It had an awesome beach vibe to it, and being from SoCal we couldn't have asked for more. We got a couples massage on the yoga deck and swam in... More
