After a few hitches on the first day, our concierge Andres made sure the rest of the stay was amazing. Lots of restaurants close by and 2 grocery stores within a block each way of the hotel. The private beach is awesome and David takes great care of you. The tour of the property with Roger was also great (we... More

We had a privilege of spending a week at Tulemar/Buena Vista and it turned out great. It all started in April, when I searched the reviews here for Costa Rica destinations, and found Tulemar and Buena Vista - apparently 2 names sharing the same location - and both having a high ranking reviews. So, I went to the website, and... More

Everything about this property was wonderful from the rooms to the service, from the monkeys and sloths on the grounds to the private beach with the boogie boards, towels, and kayaks all included in the price. The restaurant had fabulous food, and it is the same that you can order and they will bring it to the beach. They will... More

My family had a wonderful time, mainly because of the amazing Buena Vista Villas staff. I cannot say enough kind words about Gary Cerdas Gonzalez, our concierge. The property is very large and as soon as we arrived Gary made sure he took care of everything we needed and made himself completely available day and night to make sure we... More

The villa and views were amazing! The staff was warm and welcoming, and very responsive. The wildlife was simply wonderful: monkeys, sloths, macaws and more! Highly recommend this resort! We were a group of 4 (girl: 15 and boy 18) plus parents.

Loved this place! The staff were friendly, knowledgeable , and extremely helpful. I look forward to returning to Costa Rica with my family and will definitely stay here again. A few stand out employees are Gary, Andres, Christopher, Juan, and Daniella. Anything you need they were readily available and willing to help!
