I cannot recommend Tulemar enough! I can say hands down that every single staff member from the pool, bar and restaurant staff to the ladies that cleaned the rooms to the grounds keepers were amazingly friendly and helpful. Michael who was our concierge took such good care of us and even came in at 3am to see us off to... More

Our family travelled to Tulemar earlier this month and had a fabulous time! We stayed in a bungalow which was very nice and spacious, with comfortable beds and a big kitchen and living area. We had a very attentive and thoughtful concierge who gave us a personal tour of the property and left some yummy welcome treats in our room... More

We had an absolutely excellent stay! We had just come from Arenal where we stayed at a "five star " hotel where they forgot what real customer care and service are all about. Tulemar could not have been any different. The minute we arrived our own concierge Andres greeted us and took care of our every need during our entire... More

Every single person I encountered at Tulemar was so incredibly friendly and helpful. Gary was our concierge who helped us book tours and transportation whenever we asked, day or night. He had excellent recommendations for restaurants and places to go. The restaurant on the property was great. Manny was our server almost every time we went. He was so friendly... More

We found Tulemar online and because of the high ratings and stunning pictures, we felt comfortable and excited to book. This resort left us speechless. We can't say enough about how great everything was. Upon arriving, the staff was more than eager to assist with unloading/carrying heavy luggage, providing a tour of the grounds, and setting us up with any... More

I have been to many places around the globe, giving a preference to all things saltwater in nature. It's difficult to describe the natural beauty that you will experience should you stay in Tulemar, far exceeding any of my expectations.
