We stayed at Casa Marbella 2 nights in March 2012 and we loved it! First, the hotel is very conveniently located, in the middle of the village of Tortuguero: 2-min walk to the pier, 5-min walk to the beach and to the park. A bakery and a grocery store are also very close. The hotel has a very nice deck on the river, perfect to enjoy the breakfast or just read a book. The room we stayed in was large, super clean, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast is very good. The staff is very helpful and can give you some advice about the restaurants in the area for instance. They can also give you boots to go walking in the park. We also booked a boat tour with the hotel and it was very interesting, the guide speaks english perfectly. In a nutshell, 2 perfect days in Tortuguero (in spite of the rain!)
