We stayed in a Villa at Tulemar which was as modern and lavish and comfortable as one could imagine. Upon registration we were assigned a personal concierge, Andreas. He took us on a terrific tour of the grounds while our villa was being prepared and introduced us to all the staff who would be available for our every need. His...

We had a wonderful time. We love the resort itself and the staff were friendly and accommodating. We loved the facilities at the resort and our own bungalow was spectacular. The views from our balcony is breathtaking. We took a couple of tours i.e. Zip lining and the dolphin boat tour. We used the private beach a lot. We also...

Our family spent Thanksgiving week at Tulemar in Villa Cielito and it was an amazing experience. The Villa was beautiful and the view was breathtaking.

Just returned from staying our 7th time at Tulemar and it was excellent as usual! We stood at Casa Mirador upper level and Villa Cielito. Views from both were amazing!

Casa Del Mar was fantastic. Great house with modern touches. The ocean views on the balcony were nice. We enjoyed seeing monkeys and toucans on balcony. Great location. Can walk to local restaurants. Great concierge. Ashley was exceptional. The resort is a bargain compared to four seasons and villa caletas. Best hidden secret in Costa RIca.

Panorama Upper at Tulemar - Perhaps the nicest accommodation I have ever stayed in. Certainly the best view. Although a bit expensive, this unit and the Tulemar grounds, services, private beach and wildlife are definitely worth the price. We saw more wildlife on the grounds at Tulemar than all the rest of Costa Rica put together. The property is also...

We were looking to experience the rainforest and Tulemar did not disappoint. The bungalow was quite large and had everything we could possibly want. Yes, maybe the bathroom could be upgraded with new tile, but it wasn't really important to us. Brian, our concierge was wonderful and always left us little surprises when we returned to our room.

I was very disappointed in our bungalow. I was expecting much more luxurious accommodations. The bungalow was very dated. Everything looked old. The floor was sticky, even after maid service. We had ants in the bathroom. There was lizard poop on some of the furniture and the floor. And, when a storm came through, there was a leak in the...
