“Great B&B!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

We felt like we were visiting a friend at her home and treated like special guests.
The room was large, beautifully decorated and clean.
Our breakfast was set up outside by the lovely pool area. Jody found out that my husband likes Froot Loops and had a box included with the breakfast. She made french toast, eggs, rice mixed with beans, fruit salad, pastries and more.
Jody did so much to help us out; even accompanying us to the rental car office to make sure that we had no problems.
We absolutely recommend Casa Marin!

Stayed here the night before flying home. Minutes from the airport and wonderful restaurants. Very tastefully decorated and comfortable. Jody & Wilson made us feel right at home! Look forward to returning to Costa Rica and staying here again! Carol

We spent our last night in Costa Rica at the Casa Marin and wished we had known what a paradise it was sooner! This is truly a beautiful oasis!!! Complete with a cascading fountain into a serene pool framed by a gorgeous mosaic tile wall. There are 2 guest quarters - one designed as a perfect couples retreat, the other nicely furnished with 2 beds. The guest buildings are separated from each other for ultimate privacy. We loved our stay and wish it could have been longer. Jody and Wilson were fabulous hosts, assuring all our needs were met including snacks and cold drinks in the room, accompanying us to dinner, and wisking us to the airport at 5 a.m. with a variety breakfast-to-go that lasted us through our entire return trip. Arrive early so you can fully enjoy this property!!

I stayed at Casa Marin before flying out of SJO airport. It is really an oasis in the city. The airport is just minutes away, but within the walls of the compound are bright, beautiful places to stay, friendly hosts and a gorgeous swimming pool with a fountain and a large mosaic that takes you away. I love the gardens the colors and the thought that went into this place. Vegan / vegetarian friendly!!
