From the beginning until the end of our stay at Buena Vista, everything was just wonderful and this resort was Truly Paradise. The view and villa can only be topped by the staff, which were nothing less than 5 star. Andre's our Concierge treated us like family from the first minute we met. Monkey's and birds are plentiful and with... More

This place is pure heaven , the surroundings beautiful with animals and birds galore but what makes it is the people everyone from the resturant and bar staff , the drivers were exceptional and knowledgable and the concierge and reception go out of their way to help with every little detail ! The only downfall was we had to leave

Amazing right from the start. The grounds, the pools, the restaurant, the staff: all beyond our expectations. My husband and I were married on the private beach at sunset, just phenomenal. We are making plans to book again very soon. Can not wait to return!

My wife & I stayed at Buena Vista villas (no. 309) in January 2015 for 4 nights. The staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to get us settled in. The villa location was amazing, on the side of the steep hill that ran down between the coastal road and the beach. The effect was that we... More

The setting is beautiful - quiet, meticulously maintained, filled with beautiful flora and fauna. Bryan, our concierge, was the most delightful person who could not do enough for our adult family of six. He arranged everything flawlessly and graciously. The 3 bedroom villa was roomy, well furnished, and contained everything we needed. We cooked a real Costa Rican dinner one... More

Great location, wonderful views from the porch of our comfortable villa , fantastic landscaping, beautiful private cove beach, and lots of wildlife on grounds. Our concierge Michael Abarca was attentive and excellent. My entire family loved the place and we will stay there again next time we are in Costa Rica.

We just got back from 4 nights at the Buena Vista Villas with our three sons (22, 19, 19) after staying 3 nights in Arenal. What a beautiful place to come to, especially after the impersonality of the hotel in Arenal. Everyone is truly welcoming, and the accommodations and grounds are amazing. Our concierge, Andres, recommended several excursions that we... More

We recently ended a wonderful Costa Rican vacation at the Tulemar and it was amazing. Our concierge, Michael was extremely friendly and available to answer all of our questions and help us with anything we needed. The views from the room were spectacular and the private beach was equally beautiful. The property is a challenging walk, but if you want... More

We traveled to costa rica on dec 26, 2014 and our first 5 days were spent at the Buena Vista Luxury Villas. From the moment we arrived everything exceeded our expectations. The accomodations are absolutely first class and amazing. The outside shower is a real treat and the hot tub on the deck is wonderful. It was the perfect vacation... More

I have never wasted my time on writing a review before today. However, after decades of traveling all over the world, the Tulemar was so impressive that it is not to be missed. The location is a slice of heaven. The accommodations were very comfortable with fantastic views of the ocean and the forest. Everyone on the property was warm... More
