My family were lucky enough to stay here for a week in August 2011, as part of our first tour of Costa Rica. It has to be one of the best places we've ever stayed, anywhere in the world. My youngest daughter broke her ankle shortly before we travelled and the staff could not have done more to make our... More

So, I am finally getting to my review of our amazing stay back in early July. We had rented the entire house and had my parents stay on the bottom suite.

We stayed here on our honeymoon for 7 day's in August in the top two floors of the Casa Panorama south and it was second to none.

Tulemar is situated on a large hillside property a short ride from Manuel Antonio national park. A free shuttle service will run you around the place (it's that large, and steep) and to local points of interest, restaurants, shops, etc. The private beach has a cabana for lunch and drinks, plus sea kayaks and boogie boards to borrow.
