Casa Marbella was a great place to stay! It's well located in Santa Teresa with everything you need within easy walking distance like: many very good restaurants (the food in that town was amazing), a variety of surf/souvenir shops and, of course, the sandy beach. With a special note about the Brisas Del Mar restaurant, just steps away from the...

I absolutely love everything about Casa Marbella. The location is ideal for what ever your needs may be. The owners, Stephanie and Jim are great people and do a wonderful job at being laid back and very professional at the same time. The pace is slow in Mal Pais, but Stephanie and Jim will make sure you have what ever...

I was very pleased with the service of Casa Marbella. We stayed there for six nights for our honeymoon. This was the first trip to central America and we were a little nervous about it. The folks at Casa Marbella were very helpful and made us feel very at home. The views from the rooms were amazing. We stayed in...

Hi ! This place is wonderful. Nice pool, perfect ocean view, clean and cozy rooms. Although the location is in the center of S Teresa it is nice and quiet. Bars and restaurants are close to walk and my favorite restaurant was right next door perfect for the sunset drink. Beside that Jim and Stef were super friendly and ready...

I have stayed at Casa Marbella 2 separate times. Once we went as a family and rented out the "apartment" upstairs. It was a dream, a HUGE covered porch with tables, benches, hammocks and more. Inside was a large living room and amazing kitchen. 2 bedrooms on the main level and one bedroom up a set of stairs. The whole...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for three nights in September. The hotel has a gorgeous view and their infinity pool overlooks the sea. We really enjoyed swimming in the pool everyday while looking over the ocean. Pros: - It is located right near the town of Santa Teresa and we were able to walk to every shop and restaurant....

Great little hotel on the hill with ocean view infinity pool. Rooms are comfortable, A/C, fridge, safe, some have king size beds. Yoga and sun deck available for guests to use.

This hotel is rustic. You will encounter ants, musty sheets, barely functioning showers and other items in less than pristine shape. We stayed here for a few days in spring and decided to leave early for many reason but the one that cinched the decision for us was dealing with the owner's daughter, who took over the pool and proceeded...
