What a great find! Luciano and Maricé are a wonderful couple who exhibit the perfect blend of the laid-back Caribbean living yet are friendly, warm, and welcoming hosts. They have created and maintained a beautiful property full of flora and fauna including 3 large avocado trees and a guava tree. Maricé picked some avocados and guava fruit and gave them...

We stayed 4 nights with Marice and Luciano and had a great time. They were very helpful and caring! The hut was very clean and didn't lack in anything. It is a quiet place, close to the beach Playa negra and far from the touristy area. We would have loved to stay longer.

Beautifully decorated, fully-equipped and spotless wooden cabins located in a gorgeous, quiet garden walking distance to the beach and town center. The host and hostess are very warm, friendly, and welcoming. We enjoyed our stay very much and felt right at home. It was our favorite lodging in our entire 17-day trip in Costa Rica. Our two teenage boys also...

Yes, it was a tropical paradise! There are lots and lots and lots of guesthouses near Cahuita but surfing through tripadvisor, I found Casa Marcellino. The location and the photos made the decision for me instantly. Playa Negro was close by and the garden where the chalets are, was just magnificent. Well, the photos actually did not do justice -...

We stayed in Cahuita for 2 nights, however Casa Marcellino was so beautiful that I wanted to stay more if we didn't have to fly out from San Jose!

We stayed at Casa Marcellino for 3 nights over New Year's Eve and enjoyed every minute of our stay! Maricé and Luciano are wonderful hosts and made us feel incredibly welcome the whole time!

We stayed in Casa Marcellino for two nights the first days of November 2014. It surpassed our expectations by far. Working in the hospitality business, I can tell how much love and care for details Marisé and Luciano have invested in their charming accommodations. We stayed at the two bedroom casita. It had a completely equipped kitchen, a very nice...

We stayed at Casa Marcellino from the 14th to the 21st March 2014. Luciano picked us up from the TRALAPA bus station. It was a long ride from San Jose and we were in need of some safe, quiet time.
