Tulemar is an amazing experience. Best I've had so far which includes lots of Hawaii and Mexico and many other beach vacations. Everyone should experience it! We stayed in Green Haven. Which was perfect for my small family of 4 adults and 1, 5yo. Really, the best part of Tulemar is the folks who work there. They are so nice and so attentive! Brian Q was ours. Can't say enough good things about him. Anything you want, he/they can provide. Groceries, ice, liquor, food, reservations, rides into town, etc. You name it, they will do it. It's truly what separates them apart to be world class! The Tulemar Cafe was our favorite restaurant. The beach experience is amazing. Monkeys, sloths, tucans, macaws, all the wildlife and all the trees, flowers, etc. on the property is all amazing. Nothing like having coffee on the deck watching monkeys walk by. Anyways, it truly is amazing.

Tulemar is amazing! I stayed with my family of five in the Green Haven Villa in early March. The Villa exceeding all of my expectations. It was beautiful, well-appointed and included a private pool and views of the ocean. We worked with Brian, our concierge, before we even arrived. Brian went above and beyond to book the most amazing excursions, arrange a private chef in the Villa, check on us throughout our stay and arrange all of our transportation. The property has sloths, monkeys and beautiful birds and is right on a stunning, calm stretch of the beach. Tulemar is absolutely beautiful, but it is the customer service and friendly, helpful staff that set it apart from anyplace I have ever stayed! We will definitely be back!

Stunning property. Our villa was absolutely perfect, amazing view of the ocean and sunset. Absolutely loved the oasis of wildlife surrounding, so many monkeys, sloths and incredible birds. No need to go to Manuel Antonio, it's all in with wonderful oasis that is Tulemar. Super friendly and helpful staff. Very much enjoyed our stay, just before all the craziness of coronavirus!

Pura Vida - Even during a pandemic Tulemar delivered 100%! This was this first trip I let a resort handle everything. Transportation was arranged by Tulemar and was a private new van from airport to property. My family and I had an amazing 4nights with our 2 children in a renovated bungalow ( with a Sloth in a tree above as a neighbor ). Fabio , our concierge, made sure our days were relaxed and worry free. Food was awesome - We explored one night but preferred eating on site besides lunches offsite during excursions. Can’t say enough about the staff being so professional and cool even with the news saying the world was ending- honestly if it does glad my family and I got to go here. To the whole staff at Tulemar - Thank you and stay safe!

Our experience at Tulemar was absolutely outstanding. Beautiful, isolated beach, immersion in nature (Squirrel Monkeys, Sloths, Toucans, Macaws, etc.), and wonderful views. Ashley and the team anticipated our every need. Their responsiveness to any question or request was amazing.
