We had a wonderful week at Tulemar. We stayed at Panorama and the suite was lovely, great views of the sunset every evening. The monkeys and sloths visited us at our balcony most mornings while we were having coffee. We saw more wild life at Tulemar than at the nature parks. The beach is quiet, private and beautiful; David at...

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...

This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and it is hard to describe what a spectacular place Tulemar is. My wife and I travelled from Toronto with our two kids (6 and 3), and my parents met us there. We absolutely loved the accommodations. We stayed in Casa Mirador Upper. Every night we enjoyed the spectacular sunset looking over...

Tulemar bungalows and grounds are very, very special. We stayed in Casa de las floras, a 2 bedroom updated bungalow and it was "gorgeous". It's hard to even describe the view, we were high up on a hill, there are bungalows close by, but our view was unobstructed. The bed upstairs was a comfy king sized bed and it's in...
