We had the best vacation at Tulemar! Everything was picture perfect. Our villa was amazing and the staff was so accommodating. The food was delicious and the service was top notch whether it was room service or in one of the restaurants. Ashley, our concierge took care of anything we needed, from tours, restaurant recommendations and even our return home covid tests went off without a hitch. It was amazing from start to finish. Tulemar is a one of a kind place in a truly beautiful corner of our globe. We can’t recommend it enough and can’t wait to go back.

We spent a week at Solangelo with two other families and had an absolutely amazing time. Working with Ashely (the concierge) before we arrived, we had all our private excursions booked and private chef evenings ready to go. Plus Ashley arranged for all the groceries and extras we requested to be there on our arrival. Ashley made sure each day everything was going as planned and was able to help us with last minute requests. She was available at any times during our staff and started working with us months ahead of time to pre plan. The wildlife at Tulemar, the available excursions, private beach with staff at Tulemar, and local restaurants on site and within walking distance are hard to beat. We have had vacations together with the same families to Hawaii several times and this trip by far has been the best for both adults and kids. Kids did everything on their wish list for excursions and the adults had plenty of relaxation time and great dining. We saw sloths, squirrel monkeys, howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, macaws and Toucans all from our Villa. No need to venture far to see great wild life. July was a great time to go too. Rained some in the afternoon, but for the most part the weather was perfect. Just right for enjoying the beach and excursions without too much sun. We definitely plan on going again!

PazAmorè is more beautiful than I have words to explain! The Villa is just perfect! Modern and comfortable— it’s like living out of a magazine! Raul and Luis were the best concierges and ensured the best time! We did not want or wonder for anything! They set up the best tours, helped with transportation— we did not have a need that went unmet! I have never been treated so good!! The house has the best architectural design and decor (went down a Andres Brenes rabbit hole on Instagram while relaxing on the patio)! It’s comfortable and the views— well they don’t get better!! Waking up to paradise every day!! The cleaning crew was perfect and the place was absolutely spotless! It was great to leave the worries of daily living behind and have a vacation of a lifetime experience. The wildlife was on the property was so beautiful!! The care that goes into the land and property is much appreciated!! Can’t wait to visit again!!! The staff at the Cafè and beach were the best— the food was top notch!! Best time ever! I can’t name a single thing I would want different (other than to stay longer and bring the kids!)

The villa we stayed in was gorgeous, the staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and bilingual, and the wildlife you can see right outside your window will take your breath away. The beach is excellent, with either swimming or water sports both being great options, and very accessible with either hiking trails, shuttle, or simply a short walk. Manuel Antonio Park is a 10 minute drive away, and Quepos is also easily drivable, with many cheaper food options in the local sodas. The private chef is a must-do. We hired chef José twice because his food was that good. Dinner was spectacular, and breakfast was even better. Every single dish or side was the best we had ever had. For the quality of his cooking, he should really be charging double, so don't miss out before he starts his own 5 star restaurant. Fabio, our concierge, helped us really get the most out of our experience at Tulemar, and gave us a tour of the grounds when we arrived so that we would know where everything was. He also made sure we saw a sloth before we left! The restaurant has good food options and really great drinks. I personally recommend the "Pura Vida", and my husband loved the "Monkey Madness". P.S. It's really important that you don't feed the animals here! There is a troop of capuchin monkeys that live around the area that like to visit the bungalows in the morning to look for food because enough tourists have left out things for them to find. They are very naughty, but cute!
