A friend and I spent three nights at Casa Marbella and it was by far our favorite part of our week in Costa Rica. Even though getting there is a little rocky, when you arrive your are greeted like an old friend. Owned and operated by American ex-pats, there is no detail neglected in this experience, from the beautiful, ocean... More

We arrived here tired and dusty and were pleasantly surprised by the size and comfort of our 3 bedroom 'luxury condo' at Casa Marbella. We loved the honor bar system and helped ourselves to soft drinks and coffee. We loved the view and spent time with and without our kids in the pool. The place is small enough that the... More

Amazing staff, so friendly. Very comfortable. Rooms trendy and cool with great AC and luxurious bathrooms. Super comfy beds, honor bar, book exchange, and the coffee-wow! Only drawback is that climb up the hill in the heat but well worth it. Brenna and Sharlene

Lovely stay at Casa Marbella... The perfect place if you want to relax. A wonderful location that's close to town, while far enough away to be quiet and dust free! The infinity pool was the perfect place to cool off after a long day of exploring this beautiful area. My husband and I hope to return next year.

Eventually we got use to it. You can access the beach, the restaurant and the market easily. The room are the right... More

Enjoyed my second stay at Casa MarBella - located in such a wonderful town. MarBella is perfectly situated in Santa Teresa with incredible views of the ocean and just walking distance to the beach. The food in Santa Teresa is incredible and at Casa Marbella you are surrounded by all the amazing restaurants. The owners Jim and Stephanie do a... More
