The Tulemar location in Costa Rica is wonderful! Very different than other resorts that we have visited in a very good way. The unique layout of the various buildings are amazing. When it comes to the service, the only words for this is Excellent and extraordinary. Before arriving we exchanged text messages with out personal concierge Michael. He completely set...

Spectacular views. Macaws, canaries and toucans flying by. Daily visits from monkeys. Terrific staff particularly our concierge Orlando. Our family - Grandparents, children and grandchildren stayed in a three bedroom villa. Great layout and plenty of room for the 8 of us. The beach was beautiful and easy to get to. We particularly liked the proximity of the resort to...

Our entire family (even the hard-to-please pre-teen) had a wonderful week's stay at this resort. From the planning stages, to check-in and requested changes, to relaxing and enjoying the property, this vacation was easy and enjoyable. Using the website and email with Maria, I was able to arrange for transportation to the property from San Jose, choose the perfect lodging...

We were on a family vacation with teenagers. From the moment we entered the hotel, we received warm treatment and did not have to wait. At once Geri came up to us, who had stood by us all the time and helped with everything possible even when he was not on duty. Gary was very polite and willing to help...

We went for spring break 2017 and this place is spectacular. The proximity to Manuel Antonio wildlife preserve and beautiful ocean activities with access to a beach for lounging and easy access for scuba diving and a sunset cruise. The villa had 3 bed rooms with sweeping sunset views of the ocean. We comfortably fit 9 people in our room....

Our experience was everything I'd hoped it would be. The villas were lovely--plenty of space for each person to have privacy when needed/wanted, very comfortable and attractive. The views from balconies were beautiful, were able to bird, monkey, sloth watch from them as well as appreciate ocean views and vegetation. Living area well laid out with fully equipped kitchen, comfortable...

A perfect place for relaxing, surrounded by beautiful nature & animals, great food, magical sunsets, multiple pools and a private beach. You practically feel like you're living in the jungle and the view from the bungalows (104 and 209) was just amazing! The staff is very friendly and helpful. This place has everything you need and more for the perfect...

Just got back from an 8 day trip to Costa Rica. Four nights at the Tulemar resort, and I can honestly say we hit the jackpot by choosing this resort. Many wonderful activities to do close by, but we almost didn't need to leave the resort. The rooms had everything we needed, and the staff pay special attention to each...

Our stay at Tulemar's Buena Vista Luxury Villas was truly incredible. Monkeys climb through the trees and a pair of Macaws were nesting right outside our room. Despite the resort being full there were very few people and the friendly and accomodative staff allowed us to really enjoy our time with nature. The food was five-star (Elioth was the man)...
