We stayed in Casa Panarama and had both the upstairs and the downstairs for our group of 6. We were met by Kimberly(Malibu Barbie) upon arriving at the villa. Kim took us for a tour around the house and then gave us a crash course in everything from dining, to tipping to excursions. She then left to go buy us... More

We stayed in the mini-suite last week for three nights. I felt the mini-suites were a fantastic value compared to what you might spend for something comparable in Mexico or other winter destinations. The beach is breathtakingly beautiful. The water is warm. The sand is nice. The water is blue. Its very private, but yet has a festive feel with... More

What a wonderful week we had at Tulemar. Our spacious 3-bedroom villa was clean, convenient, and tastefully decorated with stunning views of the jungle and ocean. There was plenty of room for all eight of us (4 adults and 4 kids). Loved having morning coffee on our balcony, and really enjoyed the huge gorgeous showers. The kitchen was well equipped.... More

Visited this great place for vacation and my friend \cousins wedding. I can say the ride from the airport after flying and figuring out where our shuttle was long and a bit of a headache.

Our family of four had an outstanding experience at Tulemar. We booked a bungalow through Dave--it was the least expensive of the lodging options, but comfortable and attractive in every way. Although every home in the resort was booked, it never felt crowded--we often had one of the (clean, well-heated) swimming pools to ourselves. The beach too was uncrowded, with... More

You don't even need to leave the property to get a feel for Costa Rica. We saw all 3 species of monkeys on the hotel grounds, including a troupe of spider monkeys that jumped on the roof of our bungalow.
