Our family stayed at Tulemar for a week and it was great. In the mornings we often went off to do some excursions, and used the pools or great private beach in the afternoon. While all the staff was very helpful, I like to give a huge thumbs up to David who made our trips to the beach a blast!

The resort is on the side of a hill leading down to a private beach. Excellent views from everywhere. Two nice pools as well. Service is amazing. Our concierge Andres made sure we had everything we needed. Our bungalow was very nice and spotless. WiFi everywhere. Monkeys and sloths too!
