– The Hotel –
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 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.
We want our hotel to be your home while your visiting. You will have exclusive access to the bedroom and its private bathroom. Additionally, you will have shared access to all hotel common areas, which include the Infinity Pool and Whirlpool, Sun Deck, Ocean View Yoga Deck, Honor Bar Area and Reception Area.
Reception is open daily from 8am to 6pm. We will worry about things like daily cleaning, transportation and activities so you can just focus on having a great holiday.
