I stayed at Casa MarBella for 3 nights and from even before I arrived, I felt welcomed and appreciated. First off, as you can tell from photos, the property is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. I splurged on the 2 bedroom suite so I could have my own balcony and hammock… worth it. Above all though, it was the people that made my stay feel so warm. While I could go on for a while, André went above and beyond every step of the way, Carlota gave an amazing yoga lesson, and I received a wonderful massage (I’m sorry I cannot remember the masseuse’s name!). Everyone was so kind, and it does not and should not go unnoticed. If considering options for where to stay in Santa Teresa, look no further and book Casa MarBella now! Thank you again André, Jessie and staff for my wonderful stay.

My lady and I just returned from a wonderful 6 night stay at Casa Marbella. The location is spectacular, just back from the Main Street in Santa Teresa and a short walk from the beach. The ocean view from the property is pristine and you can enjoy morning coffee amongst the sounds of the jungle. Catch some sun at the pool or head to the beach for some surf, this spot has it all. A plethora of fantastic restaurants are located throughout town and Jessie and André along with their friendly staff can give you some pointers on places to check out. We truly had a great time here and are already planning our return.

This place is AMAZING. Stay here! We stayed in the 3 bedroom condo and everything from the huge amount of space you get, to the comfy beds, to the gorgeous view from your private balcony was awesome. We saw monkeys from our bedroom! It's 5 minute walk to the beach so great locationwithout the dust and crowds of beachfront. I couldn't recommend it any higher! The owners are super helpful with everything and put a lot of care and thought to make sure everyone has a great stay! We will be back!

This small boutique hotel is absolutely stunning, easy (def need 4x4) access and walking distance to everything in the heart of Santa Teresa. I came here with my family for New Years and we all agreed the villa we stayed in was the most beautiful weve ever stayed in, and we are from Costa Rica and have travelled all around the country. It is worth mentioning that I think they should say in their name that they are a retreat style hotel, the quiet hours are very early and because all the rooms are kind of close quarters to each other, they truly mean QUIET. not anything to discourage anyone from staying here but its worth noting. The staff was amazing and kind and we had an amazing time, but we were trying to be a little more lively given we were celebrating being able to be together after not seeing each other during 2020, like I said just worth noting if you are looking for different kind of vacation. but other than that it truly was heavenly stay!

Jessie, Andre and their staff go over and beyond to make your stay very comfortable. From the welcome gift to the Christmas gift to the champagne for New Year's, I was so impressed by how they thought of every little detail. The accommodations are nice and the ocean view is lovely. . Thank you for a great stay.
