Stayed in Bamboo Villa (#2), it is amazing as the pictures show. First level is open air with lounge areas and pretty good size infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Second level has small kitchen and seating. Third level bedroom with stunning views, large vanity area, two separate sink areas and walk-in closet. Bring a couple of good books like "Stingers"...

I am late with my review but think of this amazing property often. We chose it because people reported they saw monkeys, sloths, parrots and other animals (agoutis were surprisingly extremely cute!) The staff was also very helpful. We had an awesome meal down by the beach one night, arranged and served by the staff. Fantastic!

My husband and I spent a week in Bungalow 117. The experience was amazing. The environment is spectacular and the service even better. We were not able to do many excursions, so stayed on the Tulemar property most of the time. We enjoyed the food at the Cafe and the atmosphere at the pool and the beach where we were...

I really enjoyed the room. The view from my villa was awesome. It was amazing to catch the sunrise and sunset everyday. Just beware not to leave your shoes on the deck because it might be taken by one of the local resident monkey's:) The Tulemar staff was outstanding if you needed anything they would make it happen.

Splurged on one of the duplex apartments at the top of the Tulemar estate. Just pefect. Spacious, well equipped, icy aircon, extraordinary views and even more extraordinary wildlife. Much better animal interaction than in the MA National Park proper, as the apartments are built into much lusher rainforest. We had a pair of Toucans in the neighouring trees eating berries...
