During our stay we were lucky enough to have Andrés assisting us. He went above and beyond every day we were there. My wife had an unfortunate surfing accident which required medical attention - Andrés not only got us set up with the best private doctor in the area but also continued to check in on us and provide us...

My wife and I stayed in villa 306 for 10 nights to relax (without our beloved grandchildren). We did not wish to drive a rental car but took a couple of local tours during our stay. Staying in the Tulemar Resort is an amazing experience of living in a tropical rainforest with an incredible diversity of animals, birds, butterflies and...

We had a fantastic time at Tulemar. Our concierge, Orlando, was the most polite and helpful person to work with. With him, we booked hikes, tours, and surfing. He even got us local fish to grill in our room on his way to work one morning! We got to sit on our porch and watch Macaws fly by and was...

I'm a little belated with this review, but we stayed at Tulemar for 4 nights in February 2017. We had a 2BR bungalow for my husband and me and our 7 year old daughter, which was amazing! The property itself was also great, with plenty of animals such as sloths, monkeys, macaws, toucans, iguanas, etc. We had stayed in 2...

We spent five nights at Tulemar with our six and eight year old daughters. It was a fantastic trip and lived up to all the hype. We saw sloths, monkeys and macaws all within the beautiful Tulemar property. As others have also said, the attention to service is especially evident here. We booked all of our activities and local travel...

We have traveled extensively, and the Tulemar Resort and Villas are at the top of our list in terms of the quality of our experience. We were fortunate to have booked the 'Monkey House', villa #304, which is one of a very few with a King bed & which is outfitted with a heavy rope 'monkey bridge' from the jungle...

Recently stayed in one of Tulemar's Luxury Villa (#303). What a beautiful property! The views from the balcony were amazing. The lush tropical setting with wildlife all around was so natural - birds, lizards, monkeys, etc. just roaming the property. The villa had all the amenities you could ask for. The property was amazing with the multiple pools and its...

This place is paradise, pure and simple! I was in heaven from the moment I arrived and have been thinking of nothing but going back since returning home to VT. There is a sight to behold around every corner at Tulemar, however the people who worked at the resort were the ones who made it so special. We were welcomed...

We just returned from 5 nights at Tulemar and I'm already itching to return. The setting is spectacular, we saw even more gorgeous wildlife on our deck than during our (wonderful) tour of Manuel Antonio National Park! My ten year old rose early each morning to check for monkeys. My husband spent an hour watching a sloth search for a...
