We were over in Santa Teresa for just a short break but wish we'd stayed longer. This is the end of the road in Costa Rica and a perfect spot for down time and taking it easy. Mal Pais and Santa Teresa are essentially one long dusty beach trail combining fabulous surfing waves with cool innkeepers like Jim and Stephanie... More

When we were looking for a place to stay during our recent trip to Costa Rica we were deciding between Montezuma and Santa Teresa. We quickly decided on Santa Teresa because of the proximity to so many awesome beaches, restaurants, and adventure activities. We then decided on staying at Casa Marbella because of it's location within Santa Teresa - it... More

We just loved the quiet atmosphere, the view and the spacious rooms. The waves at the nearby beach are awesome and so is the food in the restaurant right next to the hotel (baristas del mar). We will definitely come back....

Rustic costa town and the hotel is up the hill so we feel safe. The pool and deck over look the town and ocean. Quiet and clean. Pool is a... More

If you are looking for a quiet place with a perfect view in Santa Teresa, stay here! We stayed in one of the suites with a deck that had an amazing view. I would definitely recommend one of those rooms! We loved sitting on the deck and laying in the hammock reading during mornings and sunsets. The walk to the... More

Everything is about perfect!!! We had a really warm welcome from a German lady. The owners were away for a family meeting 1 week. The view is stunning, the bed is huge! There is a really nice small boutique hotel atmosphere since there are only 8 units. So we had some nice contacts with the other guests! Waking up, seeing... More

I almost don't want to write a review, because we want to keep this place to ourselves - but the the owners are such wonderful people that I just want so much success for their dream business. I don't even know if I have enough words to say how awesome this place is. I booked Casa Marbella for a group... More

This small boutique hotel is in a perfect location. It's in town but nestled in the mountain to have an amazing view of the ocean and far enough away from the noise of the main road. The owners, Jim and Stephanie, are amazing hosts and will help you have a wonderful visit. The rooms are simple, comfortable, with amazing bathrooms... More

My wife and I stayed at Casa Marbella for 5 nights earlier this month as part of our honeymoon/1st year anniversary trip. The hotel was amazing on so many levels. When you walk in, you pass the lobby and then the space opens up so that you can see the infinity pool and some amazing views of the ocean below.... More

The apartment with three bedrooms (2 + attic with two twin beds) is a great option for large traveling groups or families. It is spatious and clean, airy and bright. The amenities are well thought... the place is just delightful. The price is very reasonable for what you get! The views are to die for, and the infinity salted water... More
