Andre and Jessie were wonderful hosts. They have made this place an amazing little getaway that we would not hesitate to stay at again. The hotel itself is perfect, and the smiling, friendly staff make it even better. Close to the town and beach with private access to one of the best restaurant views for sunset further up the hill....

Lovely place with really nice people managing it. Mega plus for the fresh coffee every morning :) 5min to the beach with the best view a bit up the hill. We can highly recommend Casa MarBella if you want a relax holiday. The restaurant next to the place is really good as well.

We had a fantastic time at Casa Marbella! Andre and Jessie are great hosts, and did everything to make sure our stay was the best it could be. We particularly appreciated the restaurant recommendations, making it super easy to book transportation (ATVs and taxis), giving directions. What a treat to watch the sunset from the infinity pool! The morning coffee...

We stayed at Casa Marbella during our stay in Santa Teresa - our first visit. The single rooms were booked so we went for the 3 bedroom condo on top floor and we're happy it worked out that way. We practically lived on the large balcony from having early morning coffee and reading, a cocktail in the evenings or taking...

This was our first vacation in Costa Rica, and Santa Teresa is a great place if you are adventurous and in pretty good shape. Casa Marbella is close to the beach and surfing and some very nice restaurants. We rented a 4-wheeler and made some side trips to go ziplining and visit Cabo Blanco Nature Preserve. The hotel is small,...

This was our first time to Santa Teresa. As 55+ travellers we knew we may be a bit out of our element with all the young surfer/ yoga folks, but I was determined to see as many different areas of Costa Rica as possible. The area is beautiful...the beaches stunning. We couldn't have found a better place to stay. Casa...
