The food was good, the service was good, the beer was cold, and the view with the surfers was awesome. Very cool atmosphere made the lunch a highly enjoyable day.

This place is the perfect spot to sit and watch the sun set while enjoying a cold beverage and a delectable meal. The fish tacos are fantastic and the nachos are delicious. If you’re looking for something more substantial you’ll want to try one of...their pasta dishes. For something different order a Chiliguaro from the bar, similar to a classic Caesar but made with a local booze.More

The food we ate was fairly average, but it was mostly for kids, so thats totally acceptable. The drinks were delicious and the service was good. The view and location of the TiKi Hut Bar is everything! Looking out at the beach with a ocean...breeze blowing, makes this place awesome!More

We stopped in for a cold drink after visiting Playa Marbella across the street. Very cute place open air with views of the water. Great service.

I am writing this review assuming that pretty much anybody reading it is a tourist. Marbella is a tiny village with just a couple restaurants. The beach has a pretty nice break so there are a lot of surfers here. Tiki hut is directly on...the beach and is a great place to eat or have a drink. The food is not going to win any awards but it’s very good. I had the coconut shrimp and my wife had shrimp and rice. We arrived about 5:30 so we could watch the beautiful sunset and we were able to watch a dozen surfers head out to catch their last wave of the day. Our waiter junier was not very proactive, but if we waived him down he always responded quickly to anything we needed. If you are in the area I suggest that you must have a meal here at least once.More

I am writing this as a caution to anyone looking to be served quickly / at all. Three friends and I drove up to this spot on Jan 18th looking to have a bite to eat before heading back to Nosara. We were acknowledged but...never served. We knew that the service in Costa Rica is generally very slow but it got a little ridiculous when new customers sat down and were served before us. Not really sure what the deal was with this place but we went elsewhere to spend our money. Beautiful views and seemed like it would be nice but not worth the wait.More

Best drinks!!! Sunset on the water. Off the beaten path. Great for families. I had a chiliguaro shot that was amazing and my husband had the best pina colada I’ve tasted. The service was “ok” they were understaffed but the views were amazing you are...eating right on the water. We brought our 6mn old and had a great time.More

Stopped here for dinner and drinks at sunset. Service was good, food was great, drinks were amazing and the view was unbeatable at sunset. Definitely worth a stop if you’re within an hour drive.

There is not much in Marbella other than a great beach and waves. If you want to stay on the beach, the Tiki Hut is pretty much your only option unless you bring your own. Not to worry. Try the Chili water - Kinda like...a Bloody Mary shot. Talk with the locals enjoy the sunset Pura Vida!More

Tiki Hut is incredible and a must visit if you are even close to the area. The food is fresh, delicious and very reasonably priced for what you’re getting. The location is literally right on the beach. We ate their twice in a three day...span and only had great experiences with the service. Would recommend to anyone!More
