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...

We got home a few weeks ago from our stay at Casa Marbella, and we cannot stop thinking about how wonderful a trip it was and how great a place Casa Marbella is to stay. There are many places to stay in Santa Teresa, but Casa Marbella is really your only choice. Up on a hill, it has beautiful views...

We loved Casa MarBella - really, really loved it. We stayed here on our honeymoon. It just feels like home away from home. Jim and Stephanie really make you feel welcome, and, even better, they will help you instantly learn Santa Teresa. When you first get there, your room comes with their personal guide book, which recommends local restaurants and...

I loved it, we were close to the beach and most importantly close to brisas del mar...an amazing restaurant that...

Many friends questioned a Costa RIcan vacation during the green season. It rained almost only at night and was delightful by morning when we enjoyed delicious coffee and a beautiful view of the ocean. My husband and I travelled with our two teenage children and spent our first four nights at Casa Marbella. Each child was delighted to have his/her...

The hotel was beautiful, inside and out. Jim and Stephanie were excellent hosts - after meeting and interacting with them their "excellent" Trip Advisor rating comes as no surprise. My wife and I are not surfers and don't do yoga, but we thoroughly enjoyed Casa Marbella, and Santa Teresa. We had several stops during our trip to Nicoya Penninsula -...

My wife and I just got back from our 7 day trip to Costa Rica for our 17th wedding anniversary. Our only regret was that we didn't spend the entire trip in Santa Teresa and specifically Casa Marbella (we spent the other half of the trip in Taramindo...big mistake after experiencing Santa Teresa). It was one of our best trips...
