From the minute we walked into the reception we were greeted by the most welcoming staff. One of which... our concierge for the week... Danny. He began by telling us he would ensure we had the best week ever. Danny definitely made sure that happened... from booking dinner reservations to excursions, helping us celebrate a birthday... by even bringing a... More

Pros: We began our vacation at Buena Vista on June 27. We stayed 4 nights. We started out in #414, the 2 bedroom villa, and were amazed at the beauty of the villa and the view. The 5 of us each had our own bed with 1 person on the "day bed". We had a 3 bedroom reserved and moved... More

This ended up being our last stay on our honeymoon. We absolutely loved the beach and the boogie boards and kayaks that were available to all of the guests. The water was fairly wavy, at least compared to our previous stops, so it made for some fun time in the water. There are animals all around the property so it... More

The property is one of the best I've stayed in - the staff is fantastic and they can organize an amazing trip. The villas are spectacular and every view is stunning. Wildlife is everywhere - all 3 species if monkeys in Costa Rica (in large troops), both two and three toed sloths and iguanas and birds everywhere.

Unfortunately this place has several different names - I just reviewed it under "Tulemar". At any rate, it's an awesome place. Best thing about it is the amazing service. We stayed in a two bedroom place that was pretty epic. The beach is lovely too. If I go back to Costa Rica, I'm basically going to base everything out of... More

We finished out our honeymoon here and cannot say enough good things. From the moment we arrived on the property, the staff took amazing care of us. Our personal concierge Danny made us dinner reservations and gave us his cell phone number to use 24/7. Viviana at the front desk was so accommodating and friendly.

We are a family of four. We spent 8 nights here and it was spectacular. It's a very small place with only about a dozen villas. You get to know most of the other people in the villas when meeting at the main pool & restaurant/bar. The view from the room windows is breathing!!! Not to mention all the wildlife... More
