Casa MarBella is a boutique style hotel in Santa Teresa situated on a mountain slope on the Pacific Coast. The casa provides panoramic ocean views and is surrounded by jungle. It’s centrally located in the jungle town and is within walking distance to stores and some of the notable restaurants in the area. Most importantly, you can walk to the beach in 5 minutes (Playa Carmen).

The hotel is essentially 1 grand villa consisting of 8 separate and unique units surrounding an infinity pool overlooking the coast (“sunset view”) and the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, the first national park in Costa Rica. It has 4 different typologies of rooms for your different needs and group sizes. It offers unique accommodation in Santa Teresa for those seeking the service, safety, and privacy of individual hotel rooms, yet the intimacy of a private villa. Reservations can be made for individual hotel rooms or for full hotel rental, depending on what you are looking for.

Although the area itself is renowned for its consistent surf breaks, which some are within walking distance from the property, there are plenty of other attractions that draw guests. These include hiking, yoga, canopy tours, dining, and so much more. We even have our own private ocean view yoga terrace, where we keep mats for private practice. You don’t even need to leave the hotel to enjoy watching wildlife in their natural habitat. Amongst others, you can see howler monkeys, iguanas, and a variety of bird species. Moreover, we have a private access to the restaurant next door that is literally steps away and has a spectacular sunset view.

Come and enjoy a relaxing holiday in our jungle home. Where the jungle reaches the sea. Where monkeys can be seen hanging out in trees and eating fresh fruit. Where t-shirts, board shorts, and the optional flip-flops are the official attire. Where televisions are replaced with books and card games. Where everyday finishes with stunning sunsets enjoyed from the beach or your favorite sunset bar. Come enjoy the experience of Santa Teresa in our very own Casa MarBella - A Hillside Retreat Experience.
