Bueno Vista Villas is a part of the Tulemar Resort complex. They operate as one when it comes to staff and amenities. Can't say enough about the amazing staff here. The service is beyond amazing. Our concierge was Alex. Alex helped us with everything we needed while at the resort and setting up everything we did outside of the resort.... More

We booked a villa 306 to be exact. This was the perfect situation for beach view and rainforest experience. We saw monkeys on the patio, iquana's in the trees, McCaws, Sloths, that were fabulous to watch. The room was clean, and we cooked breakfast in our room every day and ate on the patio, perfect experience and I would highly... More

My wife and I stayed at Tulemar for 3 nights in the Bungalows for our honeymoon. We've never experienced service from a hotel like we did from Tulemar. The resort is unlike others and they have shuttle service to take you from your room to anywhere in the resort (reception, resort restaurant, etc.). Tulemar even has its own private concierge...
