Casa Marbella is a perfect oasis. Andre was an excellent host. Santa Teresa is a wonderful place to disappear for a week. Spend lots of time outside, surfing, fishing, hiking and return to luxury in the evenings.

This was my third trip to Casa MarBella. It is a wonderful property with great views and an intimate feeling. The owners are very helpful and accommodating and fun. The town is small enough to get around without transportation and there are many great restaurants. The hotel is great for a medium sized group that can take all the rooms...

This is a very special place! It's definitely a hidden gem. I stayed at Casa Marbella for a week on a yoga retreat. The views are gorgeous, it's clean, fresh and beautiful. The owners Jessie and Andre are great! They're super accommodating and made our stay feel effortless, relaxing and totally at home away from home. I stayed in a...

Loved the service, views, and easy access to the beach and town. Andre couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating with where to eat and what excursions to do each day. Andre and his staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our time at Casa Marbella. We stayed in a standard room with a kitchenette and...

We booked this place for January 19 till January 27 of 2017. The owner seems very accommodating. We can't wait to get there and enjoy this quiet hotel. Do some surfing and yoga! I will post our experience when we return back to cold Boston. :)

To be honest, there is no better view to the sea in Santa Teresa than this. This a great place to go with all the family or if you are going with your couple. If you take the Condo, get ready to go upstairs, open the window, sit on a sofa and loose yourself into the view. Highly recommended for...

Casa Marbella is a great place to stay! It is really relaxed and the view is absolutely beautiful.. You are surrounded by nature, and if you're lucky you can see monkeys and other animals in the trees in the early morning. The owners were very very nice and were always willing to help. The rooms are very clean and spacious,...

I've made four trips to various regions in CR over the past 16 years; this is my favorite hotel yet. Very clean, quiet, everything works. The new owners are a young couple who have managed the place before recently buying it. They're doing it right. The town of Santa Teresa is okay, but pricey and a little presumptuous for me....
