We had a brilliant stay at Casa Marbella. The room was lovely, on the first floor. Comfortable bed, good shower, staff were lovely and the breakfast was phenomenal, pancakes and syrup or scrambled egg with toast - both delicious. The hotel also runs a jungle boat tour at 6:00am, back in time for breakfast. Our guide Victor (nickname Chamba?) was excellent, very knowledgable on the animals we saw - iguana, caiman, river turtle, two toed sloth, ant eater, aninga bird and a lot of smaller exotic birds and butterflies. I would highly recommend the tour and the early start is more than worth it. The hotel has free Wellington boots for jungle tours too. Great place to stay!

Rooms are basic but comfortable. Showers hot and towels come in some awesome creations and rooms are very clean.

A nice deck to watch the world go by on the river.

Wifi is very good.

Breakfast pancakes are amazing!

Staff are very friendly.

Room Tip: Room 4 is off the road with a view of the river.

We had a family room with 4 beds and bathroom, somehow separated from the others. There were works going on, to add two more rooms, but they were not disturbing at all. Casa Marbella is right by the river, with a shady terrace overlooking it, with tables and chairs and where breakfast is served. The personnel was very friendly and helpful. They offer many kinds of excursions. We booked the early one on the river (before breakfast) and the one to the Tortuguero hill. Both wonderful.

We only spent 1 night in Tortuguero And Casa Marbella was ideal.

It's not fancy however the location is great, the bedroom is confortable and the views of the river are lovely.
It's easy to grab food in the evening and to see local life as you are in the heart of the village.

We did the turtles tour as well as the morning safari boat with them. Both Victor And Roberto were knowledgeable and look after us very well.

If I was to stay longer as we are traveling with kids I might have book a place with a pool as it was very hot and the kids wanted to get in the water and the ocean is not 100% ideal to swim in Tortuguero.

We had a great 2 nights in Tortuguero in casa Marbella, which has very cute rooms, clean, and functional. Even wifi is great ;)
Breakfast is included and one of the best we've had in Costa Rica on comparable types of hotels.
The good thing is also that it's inside tortuguero, avoids taking taxis for every activity. Just forget about lodge here, for 2 nights this one is more practical!
Now regarding the activities: we had a great experience and were very happy that we followed casa Marbella: Roberto was great, and with a very silent boat (electric, even better than paddling), he spotted a lot of birds, turtles, caïman for us (we would have seen only trees). We were only 4, this was sort of a private experience compared to most of the competition where we saw many 16 persons boats.
Then, at night, we also went with the house guide: Victor made us see a 200kilo green turtle lay eggs, and also another one going back to the sea after.. sacred moment. He was great with the explanations, and a real passion.
All in all a great stay, thanks again casa Marbella!
