We found this place thanks to reviews on this site and after quite a few failures on the previous nights, finding this gem was like a gift from the Gods! Very clean, beautiful room. Cozy, quiet and friendly/helpful staff. Beautiful view and a great infinity-type pool. Prices very reasonable both during high and low seasons. Extended our stay in Santa... More

My family and I had an absolutely perfect experience at Casa Marbella! The rooms were air conditioned, clean, and beautiful. The beds were comfy. The view was absolutely breath taking. The pool was stunning! Most of all, the staff was wonderful. We talked a lot to the manager and he was so helpful with giving us ideas and directions and... More

Stayed here with my GF. Very small property with a great view and just up from the main road. The rooms are clean and have AC. If you can book one of the suites they have a hammock over looking the ocean and have kitchenettes. My GF took surf lessons from Jim the owner and she had a great time.... More

We were more than pleasantly surprised with our stay at Casa Marbella. The staff are helpful and friendly. Mikey is available for surf lessons, which is a nice plus. The rooms are clean, with air conditioning. The pool is beautiful with a great view. There is a restaurant right next door (ask the front desk about it), that has some... More

This place is amazing! I wish we had found it earlier! The staff is super friendly and helpful, the hotel is gorgeous, clean, and has an amazing view of the beach in the distance. It is a small walk down the hill to great restaurants and the grocery store. We had a gorgeous evening making dinner in our Santa Teresa... More

I took my wife, three children, and my parents to Costa Rica for the first time this summer. My wife and I have enjoyed the country many times but this was the first time for the kids and my parents. We stayed in the 3 bedroom villa and my parents in the two bedroom below. It was perfect accommodations for... More

I spent four nights at Casa Marbella in July 2014. Great property. Views from pool and yoga deck were fantastic. Room was large and clean. Staff were excellent. I am a beginner surfer and took lessons from Mikey each day. He picked different beaches and switched up times to take advantage of best conditions for me. Very centrally located as... More

Casa MarBella is a great little boutique hotel. Like other reviewers have said it's not perfect, but the pros far outweigh the cons in our opinion. It's location and views make it a prime spot. The service is excellent. Mikey and Ameline both helped us with whatever we needed, from surf lessons to excursion ideas and restaurant recommendations. The rooms... More

This is a very conveniently located hotel, that's almost a b&b, without any serious reception attendance at all. I would suspect that if there was a problem one day, its system would not be sufficient. Interestingly it seems to function well. You have the small infinity pool and somehow find drinks that you need and although there is no breakfast... More

We would like to thank you for choosing Casa MarBella for your stay in Santa Teresa. As you stated, we are not perfect, but then again who is? We are a small boutique hotel specializing in individualized customer attention. Unlike many larger or chain hotels, we do not offer 24 hour reception. Our reception is open from 8AM until 5... More

Casa Marbella was absolutely perfect. We stayed in a 2BR suite with a full kitchen, one bathroom and a balcony. It was perfect for our group of 3. The shared pool area is gorgeous. The staff is excellent - we had a clogged drain and they fixed it asap, they were happy to set up a private driver to and... More
