Our family of 4 enjoyed every moment during our time at Tulemar. The resort is breathtakingly beautiful, the staff was very warm and helpful, and our bungalow was comfortable and well appointed. We had an amazing time. Extra bonus was when we watched our KY Wildcats make their way to the final 4 in the NCAA basketball tournament from the... More

Our travel agent selected Buena Vista and I am delighted she did. The five of us arrived late at night after a long trip from London and even then were bowled over by the villa with its spacious and stylish living area upstairs and very comfortable bedrooms down below. When we woke the next morning we appreciated our accommodation even... More

This is our second time staying on the property! Yes, I would go back again. Tulemar has small bungalows or larger rentals with kitchens. If you don't want to eat out for every meal, get a unit with a kitchen. Dining out around Manuel Antonio can be expensive. However, groceries from the local store are also expensive, so take your...

Jujuyan, thank you for writing a review; I’m glad the experience you had with us is worth repeating. Most of our units in Tulemar Bungalows and Buena Vista Luxury Villas have kitchen or kitchenette facilities, but not all so ask when you book. Thanks for your stay- Pura Vida, Chris More

Our family of five (kids ages 16, 14, and 12), spent three nights here in condo #415 and loved it. Pros: view is amazing, saw many monkeys (the different groups of them follow a sort of "path" through the property so ask when you arrive if seeing them is a priority) and a few sloths, our place was roomy and...

Happymomma, Thank you for writing a review and staying with us. Sounds like you enjoyed your stay but were unhappy with Andres at the end. I looked into this and am glad I can defend him. Turns out he did not forget to tell the van to pick you up at the beach there were van “issues” that evening and... More

I am so grateful to our travel agent (Edina Travel Leaders) for recommending Tulemar / Buena Vista Villas. I told her we didn't want to stay in a typical US-style resort. We wanted something uniquely Costa Rican in a lush, rainforest setting. We wanted a kitchen and room for our family to spread out. And we wanted to stay in... More

KLwrites, So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Our accommodations at Tulemar Bungalows and Buena Vista Luxury Villas mostly have kitchen or kitchenette facilities, ask when you book. We are centrally located so right outside the property there are a number of restaurants, shops and groceries. I agree with you that ride over is better if someone else does... More

The Hospitality was amazing and we would definitely like to visit again. Our stay was made more delightful with the great hospitality of Andres, Mike, and Orlando. They were one of the reason our trip was rememberable. Plus the location and the quality of the resort is truly remarkable. We would definitely recommend this resort and anyone visiting Manuel Antonio.

Thank you Ray! You said it all- I’m grateful to hear we provided an extraordinary experience. The property is its own bastion to the animals in the park and we are fortunate not to have the traffic the park does. The Premium Villas are spacious and perfect for travelers lodging together. Glad you enjoyed Buena Vista del Sol; sunset in... More

Thank you for writing a review and a really big thank to my staff for doing the best they could for this guest. Our prices are consistent with all the other resorts in the area.
