We booked Casa Marbella directly prior to our visit to Tortuguero and Daryl was very helpful with providing useful information prior to our arrival. He is extremely knowledgeable about Tortuguero & is keen for visitors to have a great experience.
We caught 2 local buses from San Jose & a ferry from La Pavona - this trip was easy & very cheap when compared to other information about how to get to Tortuguero.
We stayed in a ground floor room with 2 double beds. It looks like the property is being extended, so there are some building works going on, but given you won't be sleeping in anyway, this didn't cause any problems.
Breakfast of pancakes was super and a welcome change from gallo pinto. We'd gone on a wildlife boat tour at 6am that morning & had this delicious breakfast when we returned. The next morning we were hoping for pancakes again, but scrambled eggs and toast were on the menu; still very good.
We booked a turtle nesting tour through Casa Marbella and were successful in seeing 3 turtles along the beach of the national park that evening - amazing! Do not miss this tour if you are in Tortuguero at the right time.
Whether you are travelling as an individual, couple or family I would recommend staying with Daryl and Casa Marbella, if they have availability.
