My family and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Costa Rica. Our stay at Tulemar was great. The property is huge and very secluded. It also has its own private beach with watersports included, which was a great perk for us. A member of the concierge team is assigned to each bungalow/villa, and I cannot say enough great... More

Thanks for taking the time to tell us about your stay in Tulemar; we really do appreciate it. I'll address the bungalow issue first; we're happy to say that all of the bungalows, except for 2, have had new walk in showers installed and the last 2 should be completed soon. Your bungalow did have a roof leak and is... More

It's almost silly to just keep piling on glowing reviews.

Tulemar Bungalows is our favorite spot in all of Costa Rica. Set apart from the busy side of Manuel Antonio - in it's own rich lush floral and monkey populated community, you can really relax.

This was my first glass house, and it was worth it for the magnificent scenery, but embarassing when I forgot it wasn't a normal hotel room and undressed in public.
