They exceed in all aspects: the lodging, the staff, the location, etc. I had the pleasure of staying at Casa de Frutas and it was the most luxurious home I have ever stayed in.

I stayed in a Tulemar bungalow with my husband and 2 teens, which we rented from Green Coast Rentals. You can also rent directly from Tulemar/Buena Vista. We wanted a nice hotel where we could walk to the beach and be close to Manuel Antonio Park, which is why we chose Tulemar over some of the other upscale hotels in... More

We LOVED our stay at Tulemar. The location of the bungalow perched on the side of the cliff, overlooking the ocean, with monkeys and sloths in the trees all around, was really unbelievable.
