What a beautiful accomodation with all the charm of the forest including birdlime and howler monkeys in the morning yet a few minute walk to the nearby town boasting restaurants and of course amazing beach. I had a wonderful 6 night stay here while participating in an excellent yoga retreat led by the amazing Christine Chen Valezquez author of Happy... More

Great view from the pool, perfect for enjoying the sunsets. The house is really nice, the rooms are simple but decorated with good taste. We had a room with a very small kitchen which was perfect because the hotel doesn't offer breakfasts. You have complimentary coffee and there is the "Brisas de Mar" restaurante next to the hotel were you... More

Enjoyed last January an Ashtanga yoga retreat with Mark Darby in Casa Marbella. Waking up with the sun, yoga at the yoga deck with ocean view, good breakfast, lovely people, relaxing at the swimming pool and beautiful days at the beach. Just loved the peace and good atmosphere over there.

Our family stayed at Casa Marbella for one week at the beginning of 2016. What an amazing way to start the year! Feeling at home but with an unbelievable view, a peaceful pool with plenty of space to relax, a yoga platform with a million $ view, and hosts who know how to take care of their clients. We have...

This is one of the best places to stay in while visiting Santa Teresa. Perfectly located, clean room, helpfull staff and everything you need to have a great trip. Don't believe any bad reviews about this place, one of the best available, and a good value for your money as well. Enjoy.

I stayed at Casa MarBella in March 2015 and have been meaning to write an excellent review for months!! I was on a solo trip to CR for a yoga / meditation week, and it was the absolute perfect place. SO clean, peaceful and full of beautiful views and classy amenities (I.e, infinity pool, room decor). It was simple but... More

Great Hotel! Friendly, and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Quiet. Nice pool, with beautiful, panoramic view of Pacific Ocean. Good WiFi. Close enough to down town action, but far enough away for quiet seclusion.

We highly recommend staying at Casa MarBella if you enjoy staying at out of the way places. We had heard it was remote and that was what we wanted and it was perfect. We used a 4 wheeler to get around which added to the adventure. Each morning we woke to the view of the ocean and the sounds of... More
