Really helpful staff at this quaint hotel on the river. Stay here for the best tour in town. The silent electric motor and knowledgeable guide allowed us to see all the wildlife we came to see. Even if it rains (which it will!) the tour gives you a study poncho making the your enjoyable in any weather. Tasty breakfast and... More

Casa Marbella about 100m from the boat dock modest but very clean rooms and a great price and a great lounging area right on the river. The breakfasts are better than most. Scrambled eggs one day and pan cakes the next, fruit and OJ and good coffee - not a buffet, they serve you on the deck. Book their boat... More

This casa is a great spot for several reasons. The riverfront view of the goings-on of the day to day activity was great. The park guide, Roberto, was very knowledgeable and showed us many birds and water critters! He is very fluent in English and a very pleasant guy. Our host Daryl, a Canadian eh, was also very helpful. Although... More

Casa Marbella lives up to all the excellent reviews. I did lots of research before deciding to book with them & I chose well! Communications were very good. I booked for 3 nights & they suggested that most people only booked for 2 so wanted to double check that I definitely wanted 3 nights (I did & I'm glad!). Location... More

Our party of three stayed two nights at the Casa Marbella. We had a wonderful time with the friendly staff, reliable hot water and wifi, the clean and spacious rooms, the tasty breakfasts of scrambled eggs, fresh toasted bagettes and delicious pancakes. Having an upper storey room above the dock with five large windows in a corner room, it was... More

In my opinion it justifies all the very good and excellent reviews. My brief summary: Good: + very clean + very nice (staff and house) + excellent upfront communication (booked directly and not through an agent) + breakfast (even though there is usually only one type of breakfast per day, they handled our wishes flexibly) + own boat dock, directly...

Casa Marbella has very cosy and clean rooms, even hot showers. The hostel is located right at the water front, so you have a nice veranda where you can enjoy a good breakfast that varies (fruit, pancakes, scrambled eggs). The staff is helpful and friendly.

Nice little guest house in Tortuguero. Really well located in town. They run boat trips from outside on its own dock. It's basic but clean, nice friendly service etc. I would recommend for a couple of nights in Tortuguero

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The terrasse offers a wonderful view of the water. Unfortunatly, we were there when it was really hot and humid and with no air conditioning in the rooms (but there is fans), we did not sleep much. I would recommend that you ask for a room not facing the street (really noisy).

We had previously booked a room at a different place, but when we arrived in Tortuguero we realized that it was dirty, dark, and smelled terrible. We were willing to lose some money to find a different place and we thankfully stumbled on Casa Marbella. Our room was ready immediately, they serve a delicious breakfast that is different each day.... More
