We had a cute room that was very comfortable for the two of us. We loved the deck that is right over the canal, where you can have a coffee and watch the boats. Wonderful night tour to see the turtles nesting and the morning canal tour was amazing. Both led by Roberto, a very experienced guide. Really convenient to... More

If you'd rather experience the small village of Tortuguero than the larger "people-moving" resorts along the canal, Casa Marbella is a great alternative. Their staff was friendly and helpful from my first contact with them via email, through travel and tour arrangements, to final goodbyes. Our room was upstairs on the street side, small but clean and comfortable. There was... More

The hotel is perfectly located in Tortuguero. You can walk to all shops and restaurants, the boat dock, and even to Tortuguero parc. The rooms are different in size. We had a large one on the waterfront and a smaller one with a window at street side. The place is clean, but noisy, and has a beautiful deck at the... More

Cute hotel on the main Tortuguero canal. Daryl arranged for us a very interesting boat tour to the national park which is really closeby. We spotted several species of birds, a snake, a few caymans and plenty of monkeys. Definitely recommended!

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Marbella very much. They were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and very nice, we loved the breakfast and the chairs on the terrace with canal view. Thank you very much!

Simple, clean and very friendly. Ideal spot for kids. Went on a tour at 5.45am with local guide Raphael, he was a gold-mine of fascinating information and we spent an unforgettable 3 hours travelling through the waterways spotting wildlife. Weather was kind so we were lucky enough to see caiman, monkeys, sloths, tamandua, turtles and a plethera of different birds.

We stayed here for three nights and due to our late booking, we had to move rooms each night. This was no problem at all, the staff were lovely and friendly and happy to move our bags for us when we wanted to head out early. The best room was definitely the upper floor room with the river view, stunning!... More

This cute B&B had the right mix of a great location in the village but still river-side with lovely views, reasonable prices, good breakfasts and helpful service. Communication from my initial inquiry through my departure was prompt and useful, answering my questions and helping me to book tours. I took a ground-level "street-side" room because of availability and budget -... More

My boyfriend had a nice stay in Casa Marbella. We found the owner was helpful and polite, although I wouldn't go so far as to say friendly. The rooms are basic and clean and the view out over the water was really nice. From what we saw of Tortuguero it was probably the nicest place to stay in the town,... More
