This was a great spot right on the water in Tortuguero village. It was lovely to have breakfast looking across the water. The boat tour with Roberto left from their wharf and was a really good tour. We loved staying here. Also the hosts were great with their communication about getting to Tortuguero and what to expect.

There were 3 of us, and we didn't know at first what kind of hotel we wanted, between the really very cheap ones and the resorts. We found this one to be kind of in the middle (still on the low prices compared to the resorts), and in the end a really good value : one bed each and enough...

Hi Wendy Thanks for choosing us for your stay in Tortuguero and taking the time to give us a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We are normally very meticulous about cleanliness. We end up donating a lot of perfectly good linen and towels throughout the year that no longer make the grade. I will have our housekeeping staff...

We were traveling with friends and each got a room on the lower floor on the "street" side (really a walking path since there are no cars in Tortuguero). We loved the convenient location, great value, helpful, friendly staff and the amazing patio on the water. On our first night there was a huge rainstorm so we all just hung...

Casa Marbella is a wonderful B&B right in the middle of the village of Tortuguero. The staff was very helpful in arranging anything we asked. Breakfast included fruit, juice, coffee and tea and then pancakes or eggs and toasted baguette. The riverfront patio is the perfect place to relax. I highly recommend the superior room upstairs, number 7, with gorgeous...

Lovely clean rooms with plenty of fans, helpful reception staff, amazing towel sculptures! Delicious breakfasts - fruit, then pancakes or scrambled eggs all cooked fresh. Perfect waterfront seating. The morning boat trip was totally brilliant - relaxing and up close to the wildlife. Toucan, caimans, herons, vultures, snake birds, howler monkeys, iguanas, otters!! We were very lucky, but the wildlife...

My wife and I spent four nights in this lovely riverside hotel. We were in a superior room on the second floor. Clean and comfortable. A single and a double bed. A good-sized bathroom. Wi-for. Lots of windows which affords a great view of the river. Breakfast (included) consisted of a fruit plate, scrambled eggs or pancakes, toast and coffee...

We stayed for 3 nights in an upstairs room facing the canal. Our room was basic and clean and quiet. Casa Marbella is conveniently located and has a lovely deck facing the water where you can sit for hours watching the river activity and where complimentary breakfast is served. The staff is helpful and Daryl was wonderful and friendly. We...

This small hotel, or rather B&B, is located in center of small Tortuguero village, just across the church. It is simple, but well located, with a large terrace and a great view on the river and the forest across. When you rest there, you often see some neighbours, as these 2 iguanes living in the trea in the middle of...
