We recently returned from Costa Rica, where we stayed for part of the time at Tulemar. It was perfect in terms of location. The bungalows themselves were very nice -- two rooms with ample space for a family of four, nicely furnished and with great views of the ocean. The only thing I would have changed is to add some...

We just recently stayed in Tulemar with my family of six. We stayed in the Buena Vista Villa 2BR #405. The view of the ocean from the balcony was breathtaking!!!

Our family just returned from 9 days at Casa Panorama at Tulemar. We could not have asked for a better family vacation. From the beach to the pools to the incredible views from the villa, our trip was absolutely amazing.

Our family of 5 stayed at Casa Panorama for a week in late April. We could not have asked for a better experience. The villa was lovely and the views were simply amazing. Sometimes it was hard to tear ourselves away from just sitting on the balcony and looking out over the water. Everything was very clean and housekeeping did... More

We had a great time at this resort. I traveled with my family (husband and 3 young kids) and my parents. The animal sightings, bungalows, concierge service (Chris Madrigal!), and the private beach are all outstanding. The only comment that I must share is that I hope the resort works to improve the main restaurant by the pool. The menu... More

Perfect place to stay. Stayed in a premium villa and thats what it was premium. Saw plenty of monkeys and even some toucans. The beach is where its at...never busy with free kayaks and boards. We will be back again. Only downfall is the large hill it sits on but thats easily overcome.

beautiful views from this entire hillside. excellent service. Andres was most helpful in arranging transporation. Ruiz, the bellman, was enthusiastic, humorous, and energetic. enjoyed seeing monkeys, lizards, and sloths on the property. the beach was delightful. perfect for large family gatherings, as there are a number of gorgeous homes for rent.

We recently spent a week in Manuel Antonio on the beautiful property of Tulemar. It is a very resort like atmosphere - pools, restaurant on site, private beach, shuttle drivers, personal concierge - with a Costa Rican twist. That "twist" would be the amazing monkeys, sloths, iguanas, etc that you can see just by hanging out on the property. We... More
