My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon...it was definitely an amazing find and we would go back in a heartbeat! We stayed in the Junglehouse which was super clean, luxurious, and had all the amenities, including your own private pool. The view from the balcony still offered a view of the ocean and included macaws, toucans, and monkeys...

What an amazing place. Scenery, accommodations, staff, recreation, food, everything was outstanding. We traveled with two kids (8 and 10) and with another family (kids 9, 11, and 17). Plenty of fun for kids and adults. Located within walking distance of plenty of cafes. Pre booking excursions through Tulemar was the way to go. This made the inevitable changes easy...just...

I cant even begin to explain how amazing Tulemar is. I was a little worried with it being far from the airport and very secluded that my kids would not like it. It is far from the airport but well worth it. It is secluded but a five to ten minute walk and you are right at a bunch of...

Three couples (mid-50s) traveling for warm weather get-away. Pros: Beautiful hilltop ocean views from our 3 bdr/3.5 bath villa (#404) and it appeared most, if not all, would have similar views. Very spacious villa with large bedrooms, multiple large decks, and three 2-person showers. Amazing wildlife up close and personal - we had squirrel monkeys and capuchin monkeys on our...

We spent five days in one of the 3-bedroom casas at Tulemar with two other couples. I can't think of a single thing about the visit that could have been improved upon.

We had a wonderful week at Tulemar. We stayed at Panorama and the suite was lovely, great views of the sunset every evening.

This resort is awesome, both in location and service. The "private" beach at the bottom of the resort is spectacular, with warm water and a protected surf. The resort is located on a steep hill which provides amazing views from the bungalows. Be prepared to get a workout walking around, but the shuttle service is always ready to take you...
