We have just returned from a super 2 week vacation to Costa Rica. We had the pleasure to spend a few days at Tulemar in the upper level of Villa Mot Mot. This suite worked out perfectly for our family and was outfitted very well with everything that our family required for our stay. The large deck was great with... More

Tulemar really lived up to the reviews we read on Trip Advisor. The bungalows are so unique and private you feel like you are in your own little jungle tree house. The beach is pristine, uncrowded and perfect for children. Everything is perfectly maintained and there are so many animals on the property. We saw more animals on the property... More

My siblings, their spouses and I spent a week earlier this month at Casa Panorama Norte. To begin, let me explain that there are two Casa Panoramas, right next to each other, one North, other South, same floor plans, different decor. BUT North is NOT booked through Tulemar Gardens; the owner prefers to book through his own agent (although perhaps... More

we were very disappointed with Tulemar, maybe most of the folks reviewing stayed in the villas which were beautiful but were also outrageously expenisive. We booked the bungalow and as soon as we walked in realized it was not quite as we had hoped. The bungalows or the one we had anyway, are in need of updating, furniture is so... More

Thanks for your input..... Tulemar (the resort) contains two different business entities, that overlap and share the resort. Tulemar Vacation Home Rentals (with Dave, Julien, Mauricio, Diego and Chris) represent all of the privately owned properties within Tulemar, while Buena Vista represents and administers their PREMIUM AND SELECT villas and THE TULEMAR BUNGALOWS & VILLAS that it controls.

We would go out of our way to stay here again. The bungalows are perfect for travelling with children, and the beaches and park are easily accessible.

Seeing pictures on the internet is one thing-----but our bungalow, our view--- spectacular! Truly, it was breathtaking. And our service was excellent. We felt welcomed and pampered through Julien and the rest of the staff. We booked with Dave at www.4tulemar.com. We've already recommended this beautiful getaway to friends!

Our first trip to Costa Rica was truly memorable in so many ways. Our stay at Tulemar was a wonderful experience. The Green Coast Bungalow was the perfect fit for our initial visit to this beautiful part of Costa Rica. Wonderful views, spotless housekeeping and an extremely friendly and courteous staff took great care of us. We loved the beach,... More

We went with a group of 8 guys and I was skeptical that we were going to a romantic getaway and that we would be extremely out of place. Well, the trip and the villas blew me away.

We took 8 guys for a bachelor party at Tulemar. We rented 2 bungalows, which were amazing. The sleek contemporary and teek wood finishes really complemented the geography and natural materials of the area. The outside bathroom was awesome, and the view of the Pacific was great. The entire property evoked a sense of calm, relaxation, and blending of the... More
