As a frequent traveller and Trip Advisor reviewer, I normally feel quite clear about the things I want to say, which I hope will help other visitors to have an enjoyable stay. But I don't want to spoil the pleasures and surprises of staying at CASA MARBELLA by stating all the advantages . So read carefully what the wonderful host...

We stayed 3 nights here with two rooms and loved it. The location is great on the river and breakfast is good. There's also a fridge and microwave you can use, and a grocery store just a few doors down. We had a great early morning boat tour with Victor. Book that ahead. Saw lots of animals.Then spent the rest...

Big shout out to Victor for an excellent canal tour on the electric boat, he knows his stuff and was a funny dude with good stories and jokes, highly recommend. Coffee before the 5.45am departure and breakfast ready to be served when you get back just gone 9. Fruit plate with either pancakes, syrup and banana or scrambled eggs on...

First of all, we didn't have the best experience in this little town. The trip there was amazing because we opted for the bus and ferry ride which took us into very rural areas and gave us an Amazonian experience in the canals where we saw crocodiles and beautiful rainforest. It was about a 5 hour trip if I recall...

I had reservations about booking this place as it was so much cheaper than all the lodges I looked at but I would happily recommend. The hotel itself is very simple - we stayed in a family room with a double 2 singles and a pull out. The room was relatively small but scrupulously clean and Tortuguero is about getting...

Centrally located with a nice dock. Good breakfast, and early morning coffee is a nice touch. Staff very friendly and helpful. I stayed in the front room at the top (I think #7?) which was one of the more expensive ones. It was a nice light room with views over the river. It was quite small with no space for...

We were there during the annual festival, and were very lucky to find a room here. The first night we slept in room 1 on the street side and it had 2 personbed and 1 single bed. Not really spacey, but enough for us. The shower/bathroom was clean. The 2 following night we moved to a different room (nr 5),...

The friend I stayed here with thought it was great ... I wasn't so convinced ! The decking is very nice - it's lovely to be able to sit out and watch the sun set across the water. The location is great too - in the town, with everything within easy walking distance. And I liked that they had coffee...

We had a cute room that was very comfortable for the two of us. We loved the deck that is right over the canal, where you can have a coffee and watch the boats. Wonderful night tour to see the turtles nesting and the morning canal tour was amazing. Both led by Roberto, a very experienced guide. Really convenient to...

If you'd rather experience the small village of Tortuguero than the larger "people-moving" resorts along the canal, Casa Marbella is a great alternative. Their staff was friendly and helpful from my first contact with them via email, through travel and tour arrangements, to final goodbyes. Our room was upstairs on the street side, small but clean and comfortable. There was...
