Casa Marbella is such a unique and lovely change from the big chain hotels; it is personal, full of international guests, beautifully appointed in each unit, and located in a wonderful, local, small-town area where guests can not only enjoy all the typical "tourist" activities, but also get a real sense for the local flavor and culture of Costa Rica....

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and to Casa Marbella. We definitely want to return! The accommodations at the hotel are first-class. The luxury condo in which we stayed was tastefully appointed and decorated. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. From our patio and from the pool deck, the view of the Pacific is spectacular.... More

We loved Casa Marabella, the rooms were great, Jim and Stephanie the owners fulfilled our every need and the views from the pool capture the essence of this beautiful slice of Costa Rica. We came for a few days but extended our stay for two weeks. We look forward to our next visit to Santa Teresa and Casa Marabella!

This Hotel is by far the best in the Mal Pais and Santa Teresa area. We would recommend it to anyone. It is so peaceful and the views are beyond amazing! It's the perfect location off the main road so you don't have the noise and you get the amazing views of the ocean, mountains, and sunsets. The whole staff... More

I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a Yoga Retreat at Casa MarBella. A beautiful space with wonderful food and amazing opportunities to learn to surf, to cool off in their amazing pool and to relax in an intimate and friendly environment. This is a special place, the yoga was amazing and healing. With love to the owners and... More

According to locals, the owner of Casa Marbella is the best surf teacher in town! I never surfed but had high hopes (& fears). Thanks to Jim and the consistent waves I did stand up on that board. We all did. Afterward it was great to relax at the hotel and participate in yoga with our group on the pristine... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Casa Marbella. It is a really lovely hotel that a lot of care and love has gone into building and running. The service and staff were helpful and really friendly. Our air conditioning broke and they had it fixed immediately. The location is great - pretty much in the centre of town,... More

I brought a group of 16 people in March for a week long yoga & surf retreat and we lucked out! This place is a hidden gem in town & super affordable! From the amazing open air yoga studio, to the infinity pool, the spectacular views from anywhere on the hotel, to the amazing people that run & own this... More

I think a prior reviewer mentioned Casa Marbella being even more beautiful in person than online...and I totally agree! The views from this beautiful small boutique hotel are phenomenal. Our room was clean and comfortable and opened right up to the pool which was gorgeous. There was no restaurant associated with the hotel and they do not serve breakfast (though... More
