My boyfriend and I ended up here for our last night in Santa Teresa, having decided to stay a little longer than planned. We were blown away by its tranquil beauty and charm. The front desk was incredibly helpful with our travel to Arenal the following day-- which was NOT easy to arrange, but they managed (and with a smile!)...

A group of us have just stayed in the condo for the first part of our Costa Rica wedding holiday. We all absolutely loved it, Stephanie and Jim were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and the surf and yoga lessons were such fun even for the beginners!! The photo's really don't do this place justice, it was beautiful, the...

Casa Marbella is an amazing place with great owners. It's in a perfect location, very convenient to everything, but removed off the main dusty road. There were 4 of us, so we stayed in the 'condo,' as suggested by Stephanie (could have easily slept 6). We were stoked upon arrival. The place was even more beautiful than in the pictures....

We stayed at Casa Marbella earlier this week and loved it! We enjoyed a double room with a kitchen and bath, just steps from the beautiful infinity pool and with a hammock perfectly placed on our private balcony with an expansive ocean view. Owners were kind and available, yoga deck was perfect for sunrise yoga, and the neighboring restaurant Brisas...

We stayed in a double room with a kitchenette for two weeks during Christmas & New Year's and had a wonderful time. The building itself is beautiful and the view from the pool and the sun deck is just amazing. I'm really glad we chose this place and none of the other options closer to the sometimes noisy and dusty...

My husband is from Costa Rica so we go at least once a year to visit his family. We always take a few days to go the beach, and by now we've seen MANY in Costa Rica. There's often a little bit of a trade-off: more developed areas have more comfortable accommodation but are overcrowded, and more remote/ less traveled...

Perfect place for a romantic surfing get-away!!! Awesome location, epic views, home atmosphere with fantastic and very helpful owners/stuff. Also, very clean rooms with well equipped kitchenette. We would recommend renting the suite over the regular rooms. The suites have balconies and more privacy. Rooms are a little dark. The hotel has also gorgeous yoga-deck and surfboard rental on site...

Casa Marbella was beautiful, and everything we were looking for in our stay at Santa Teresa. There are very few units and it is up off the road a little bit which makes it less dusty and has a great view. The place was full and we still felt like we were in at a private pool and deck when...

This was our last stop in Central America and we decided to splurge. So happy we did. The hotel is gorgeous, the owners are amazing and the view is spectacular.
