My husband and I stayed in Lower Mot Mot for 4 nights in January of this year. The unit has been completely remodelled and we loved the outdoor deck. We absolutely loved everything about Tulemar, especially the private beach. We both agreed this was one of our favourite places. And we loved the little town of Manuel Antonio. Our only concern was waking up the first morning to construction right close to our unit. When we asked about it, we were assured it was nothing, and then woke up the next morning to more noise. Started at 7:30 am while we're trying to relax on our patio and have our coffee until about 5:00 pm every night. Loud hammering, sawing, yelling. It was like being right on the construction site. When we mentioned it again, we were told that a unit right beside us was being renovated. This didn't impress us in the least. We understand that construction has to be done, but January is peak season, and in most resorts, it is not allowed at the peak time of the year. We were told that they only don't allow construction at Christmas and New years. Our concierge tried to make things up to us by having a private chef cook for us on our last night. This was very nice, and much appreciated, however I still did not appreciate that we couldn't sit on our deck during the day because of the continual noise. When you're paying top dollar on your vacation, you should not have to put up with that. This is more to caution others that this could happen to you as well. I read another review of people complaining about the exact same thing. We do love Tulemar and would probably return one day, but will be very cautious that this does not happen to us again.
