We had an excellent stay at Casa Marbella. The pool was perfect, the room beautiful and stylish and our minor issues were taken care of at once. Great cleaning, good coffee, even a small library where guest can exchange books. Friendly and service-oriented owners. Because we have kids, it was practical that we could fix our own meals in the...

Casa Marbella was everything we read it would be and much more. What the photos don't show you is how awesome the owners Stephanie and Jim are at taking care of their guests.

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Marbella. Stephanie and Jim were terrific hosts and directed us to great beaches, yoga and restaurants. The 3 BR condo was clean and spacious and every evening we enjoyed the most spectacular sunsets on the balcony. The beaches just down the hill from Casa Marbella were always filled with surfers and the waves...

I just got back from a week at Casa Marbella. I can not say enough nice things about the town, the hotel and the owners Jim and Stephanie. Every day trip and meal was set up for us and they suggested places that they knew we would like. Everyone is so laid back in town and it truly is a...

This hotel is literally dreamy. It is in walking distance to a plethora of restaurants, although it is a bit of a hike back up; a hike I needed because all the food is so delicious in Santa Teresa. The hotel deck is a perfect location to practice yoga, watch a sunset or the monkeys feeding in the trees, or...

This review is long overdue, but not because we didn't love our stay! Jim and Stephanie are not only great hotel owners, but great people! They did everything to make sure our destination wedding was perfect. We rented the entire hotel to accommodate friends and family for our wedding and reception for 5 days and could not have been more...

Casa Marbella is a very restful and peaceful place to stay, it's walking distance to restaurants and beach - its a steep climb back up, but the food in Santa Teresa is good, so a walk after dinner is no bad thing! Our room was very comfortable and clean, lovely attention to detail in the design and use of local...

Casa Marbella, Jim and Stephanie are the best of the best. When in Santa Teresa as a couple, we would stay nowhere else. Rooms with Kitchens save tons of cash, the extra room cost for sure, over the expensive ST rest, scene. See ya'll again soon.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Casa Marbella from the 17-25th of November, right at the beginning of the "dry" season. We stayed in the standard room with a kitchenette, which was perfect for our needs.
