Everything you need in one place! Close to all amenities, beautiful view ... even enjoy the walk up the hill if you don't have a vehicle :) We had such a great time last year that we brought family with us this year. Thanks to Andre and Jessie for making us feel at home. It was also comforting to see...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Casa Marbella for five days and we really liked it. The couple who owned the hotel was super nice and helpful and the room was very clean and cosy. We would definitely stay here again!

What a great location and accommodation - the position is beautiful. Andre and Jessie are fab hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We will go back 😊 Easy access to the beach and a great pool on site. We really liked the atmosphere of the place.

The service is great, you feel like home, the view, the rooms everything is great in Casa MarBella. And the price is pretty good! I've been here twice and recommend it to my friends visiting from Europe and they loved it too!

One of the best boutique hotels I've ever frequented! First off, the location is wonderful - it feels like an oasis up the hill and away from the beach. At the same time, it's only a few minutes' walk down to the ocean. I love that. Secondly, Jessie and Andre are wonderful hosts who have already shown a real devotion...

My wife and I, and our 8 month old son, stayed here for two weeks on a 5 week vacation and absolutely loved it! I've been traveling to Costa Rica for the past 8 years as an avid surfer and have been coming to Santa Teresa for the past 5 of those years and by far Casa Marbella is the...

Thank you Jim for the amazing review, to say the least :) It was truly a pleasure having you and your family here, and I know the staff looked forward to greeting Lincoln every morning.

We choose Casa Marbella per the recommendation of our son. He was right that we loved it. It is a treasure situated above Santa Teresa, easily within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, surf shops, grocery store, ATM but definitely occupying it's own peaceful space. Jessi and Andre helped arrange all sorts of extras, an ATV, a fishing trip, a...

Thank you Lori for the wonderful review. We are happy to hear the place lived up to your expectations. It was great having you (and some of the family) here. We are glad you had a wonderful trip and stay, and that it worked out with the restaurant cooking your caught fish. Hope to see you and the family again...

Casa Marbella is a beautiful and quiet gem set in gardens on the hillside above a small but vibrant village, easily accessible on foot. Spotlessly maintained and run by caring and helpful hosts Jesse and Andre, it is the perfect get-away spot for relaxing and enjoyment of one of the Nicoya's premier beach locations.

Normally, it is a trade off between peace & tranquility and proximity to shops & restaurants. Definitely not the case with Casa Marbella! Only a few meters from the bustling Ronnie's grocery and the densest shops/restaurant section of Santa Teresa, Casa Marbella is situated up the hill enough that you feel secluded and rural looking over the treetops, taking in...

We read the reviews and do not remember anyone mentioning the steep and treacherous road up to the hotel. The place is very nice.
