We spent 2 nights at Casa Marbella in June 2013. We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 daughters ages 6 and 10) so we booked a family room. It was on the ground floor, facing the water. There was a main room with a double and single bed and a small adjoining area with another single bed plus a full bathroom. It was small and warm, but comfortable and clean. We took the morning boat tour. We were disappointed to learn our guide would not be Daryl, but Roberto was fantastic. Daryl was prompt with answering questions via email prior to our trip and helped us sort our our transportation back to San Jose. (We went to San Jose via boat to Moin then public bus to San Jose) We were wary of carrying cash, not being able to use credit cards as there is no bank/atm in Tortuguero, but all ended up okay. The staff at the reception were helpful and friendly. We booked a night turtle tour and were lucky enough to see several turtles emerge from the sea and watched one lay her eggs. Fantastic experience. We enjoyed being "in town", able to walk to the National Park for a hike, walk to local restaurants, and walk to the Turtle Conservancy museum.
