Ever notice how most hotels in real life are often not quite as lovely as the photos they post on their website. Well Casa Marbella is even prettier and better than their website pictures. We were very satisfied with our stay. The facility is in excellent condition. Very clean and everything works. The pool was a delight. Views outstanding. Owners...

Casa Marbella was even better than I had expected. The views were beautiful, the suite was clean, well-appointed, spacious and beautifully decorated. The setting was tranquil and felt a world away yet was close to the main strip in Santa Teresa and the beach.

Thank you Erica for the great review.

We stayed at Casa Marbella for the first part of our honeymoon. We loved the city of Santa Teresa and Casa Marbella was the perfect place off the dusty (or muddy) main road. We enjoyed hiking up and down the hill to get to the hotel, but most would probably prefer to rent a four-wheeler! :) We stayed in a...

This place is everything one could want in a small intimate beach hotel. I am just back from a week there with my partner. It's beautiful without being at all fancy or pretentious.

First off, this was the first time I've travelled in a group before and was concerned about how the space would be for us all. The driver picked us up at the airport and drove us to casamarbella.

Casa Marbella was such a great find! The place itself is gorgeous, the views are amazing, and it was far enough away from the main road that you can't hear anything but the jungle animals!
