To start, i think what keeps a business floating is the customer service, and without a doubt, this place will last forever just because of the GREAT customer service the owners Andre & Jessie brings, you feel just like home but without the amazing ocean View from the whole place hahaha, normally I'm very picky with everything but nothing bad...

Case MarBella is my favorite place to host a yoga retreat in Costa Rica! The owners, Jim and Stephanie, are amazing hosts and went above and beyond for our group.
