To start, i think what keeps a business floating is the customer service, and without a doubt, this place will last forever just because of the GREAT customer service the owners Andre & Jessie brings, you feel just like home but without the amazing ocean View from the whole place hahaha, normally I'm very picky with everything but nothing bad...

Santa Teresa is one of our favorite places - beautiful clean beaches, great food and nature - and Casa MarBella is our favorite place to stay when we’re there. We’ve been going consistently for the past 5 years or so. Centrally located but removed from the main street by the steep climb into the overlooking hills - during the crowded... More

Case MarBella is my favorite place to host a yoga retreat in Costa Rica! The owners, Jim and Stephanie, are amazing hosts and went above and beyond for our group.

We have just returned from an enjoyable trip covering a number of areas in Costa Rica. We selected the Casa Marbella to have a relaxing finale on our vacation. We were very pleased with the hotel, location and particularly the “new” ownership.

I have been living in Jaco for almost 4 years and love to take weekend trips to Santa Teresa. This was my first time staying in Casa Marbella and I won't ever stay anywhere else.

The most friendly of people in perhaps all of Costa Rica. The needs of their guests always come first. The view is incredible and the main part of town is right below. My 11 year old twin boys and I got to meet Andre and Jessie and we were very appreciative of their hospitality!
