We had an amazing time at Tulemar! We were a family of 4 (kids ages 7 and 10) and stayed in Bungalow 117. This was our first timed in Manuel Antonio and probably won't be our last. Since the moment we arrived we were treated with great care. Our concierge Gary took excellent care of us during our stay making...

What a wonderful week in such a beautiful place! Micheal, our concierge, was very accommodating in planning activities and suggesting delightful restaurants. The other staff members were just as equally helpful. I would defiantly go there again not only to see the exciting wildlife and county but to see new friends!

Reading the Trip Advisor reviews of Tulemar, I was prepared to be let down that it wasn't as great as every single person seemed to say. Turns out, it IS. Casa Las Nubes is stunning with an incredible sunset view, gorgeous pool, and lovely gardens. The house staff work so hard to make sure that your vacation is seamless, fun,...

Tulemar is absolutely lovely -- the grounds are beautiful, there is wildlife everywhere and the private beach and the swimming pools are magic. But it is the staff at Tulemar that elevates it from a good place to stay to an amazing experience. Dealing with tourists on vacation cannot be the easiest job in the world -- we can be...

What an amazing place. Scenery, accommodations, staff, recreation, food, everything was outstanding. We traveled with two kids (8 and 10) and with another family (kids 9, 11, and 17). Plenty of fun for kids and adults. Located within walking distance of plenty of cafes. Pre booking excursions through Tulemar was the way to go. This made the inevitable changes easy...just...

I cant even begin to explain how amazing Tulemar is. I was a little worried with it being far from the airport and very secluded that my kids would not like it. It is far from the airport but well worth it. It is secluded but a five to ten minute walk and you are right at a bunch of...

Three couples (mid-50s) traveling for warm weather get-away. Pros: Beautiful hilltop ocean views from our 3 bdr/3.5 bath villa (#404) and it appeared most, if not all, would have similar views. Very spacious villa with large bedrooms, multiple large decks, and three 2-person showers. Amazing wildlife up close and personal - we had squirrel monkeys and capuchin monkeys on our...
