I frequently rely on TripAdvisor to get a feel for places before committing to a vacation. Sometimes it's tough to separate out the truth from the all the opinions...some people rave about everything, while others find little details to complain about. I'm generally not a complainer, so you won't get nit-picky comments from me. But even if I were, I'd... More

We had a two bedroom bungalow and it was awesome! Lots of room and fully equiped with everything you need. The massive view from the main floor and the bedrooms was breath taking. The staff assisted with everything we needed and didn't have their hand out constantly for tips. Lots of animals on the property and the private beach is... More

My husband, son & I stayed in the CASA PANORAMA lower suite. We were right across from the family pool & grill, and a short walk from the beach. This unit was perfect for the 3 of us. It was clean and modern inside. We had free wifi and the television had plenty of channels to keep my son amused... More

The villas were better than we had imagined. The location was really great in between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. The beach was very nice and the shuttle service very fast. Everyone was very helpful. My suggestion is to move the bar to the adult pool as the family pool fills up quickly with children. We would definitely stay here again... More

My family (husband and 2 teenage sons) spent a week at Tulemar in the Casa Nido de Gansos. Our experience was phenomenal. The villa was gorgeous, and the Tulemar property is beautiful and wildlife was everywhere we looked. The facilities on the property- from the food to the beach, the trails, and the kayaks, were well-maintained and lovely. The service... More

Tulemar was an amazing property! They are individual rentals in the middle of a jungle, on a the side of a steep slope that ends with a private beach. So beautiful! We stayed in one of the smallest bungalows (#122). They are lovely round, individual units, lined with windows all the way around. They come with a full kitchen and... More

The reviews are correct. We stayed in a 1 bdrm villa for 3 nts. It had a nice balcony with ocean views, hammock, and monkeys in the trees. The beach is about a 5-10 minute walk down the hill. The free wave boards and kayaks were a nice plus and the beaches had nice steady waves perfect for all ages.... More

Our family had an extraordinary experience at Tulemar. We stayed in the Garden House with family, and would give a 5-star rating if not for a few complaints with amenities at the house (not enough glasses, no water pressure, pots/pans old, etc), but the service we enjoyed from Diego and Vanessa was outstanding. They were incredibly proactive with us, checking... More
