My niece and I celebrated her senior trip-spring break at Tulemar. Wow, the experience was incredible with daily monkey, sloth and iguana sightings. The staff and especially our concierge Michael went above and beyond what is to be expected. From the moment we arrived Michael was attentive and always anticipated our needs. He knew we wanted to see sloths so...

We stayed here for 4 nights. It was better than I even anticipated. Gary was our concierge and was so helpful; willing to go above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect.

Our family of 5 recently visited Costa Rica and stayed in the Jungle House at Buena Vista Luxury Villas. The grounds of the resort are absolutely beautiful. Manuel Antonia is a bustling area, perfect for dinner, tours and people watching, but the resort is an oasis away from the busy city. The Jungle house was perfect for our family. Plenty...

Thank you Texas Nancy for your review and for staying with us at the Tulemar Resort! Glad you enjoyed the Bungalows perched around the "excellent" Tule Café. They are perfect little casitas at a reasonable price within the "Paradise" of Tulemar Resort. And of course Roger- you don't see Costa Rica until you see it with Roger! Pura Vida, Chris

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Andres, our concierge, went above and beyond to ensure we had a perfect time. We rented a 3 bedroom villa which had beautiful views from every angle. And the squirrel and white face monkeys who visited were just the icing on the cake.

We had a very nice stay at Buena Vista Luxury Villas. We had the standard room, which lacked the view of the better villas, but was still very pleasant. From the look of it, the villas are very nice with great views. The beach was fantastic, and not at all crowded... Warm relatively calm water. What made the difference, however,...
