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

Just a few hundred meters from some of the best surfing and beaches, nestled in the trees over looking the ocean, lies Casa Marbella. This was the perfect location for our families Christmas vacation. Casa Marbella is a beautiful place with everything you need for a perfect vacation.

This place is great. Perfect location - only a couple mins walk to the main strip. You're close to many restaurants, activities and the beach. The hotel itself has a small number of rooms, so you get a nice intimate vibe and feel like you're living in your own private villa. Watching sunsets from the infinity pool was quite spectacular....

The bed is big (king) and very comfortable and we had a kitchenette to make breakfast and snacks. The A/C made it very comfortable to sleep and we had... More

Mikey, the property manager, as well as Jim and Stephanie were such great hosts and helped us answer all of our questions about Santa Teresa. The rooms are wonderful - clean, lovely and spacious. The property is gorgeous and overlooks the ocean.... More

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
