Me and my fiancee stayed at Villa Mot Mot for half a week in January of 2011. Diego was very helpful in making sure we had everything we needed and setting up excursions and tours. He even invited us on a private boat ride. The monkeys came right up to our balcony. The beach was quiet and we were able to walk right to it.

My family and I just returned from a too-short three-night stay at Tulemar. We are a family of 7 - four adults and three children. We had the pleasure of staying in Villa Mot Mot and had the whole house. This is a beautiful villa that has a wall of windows encompassing around 3/4 of the unit. It has a great kitchen with everything you need including a basket of fruit welcoming you. Remember to bring coffee to make in your coffee maker. I miss Costa Rican coffee! The best thing about the unit is the deck. We spent almost all of our time there. We found ourselves hurrying to return from activities just to sit on the huge deck with the beautiful views. My poor kids, they would ask to go to the beach or pool but I couldn't bring myself to leave the deck! Tulemar has a nice pool and beach. Everyone at the property goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. They can't seem to do enough for you! We had wonderful service from our concierge Diego and his wife Vanessa. They were always asking what they could help us with. Can they arrange transportation, offer suggestions for meals, etc. Vanessa was so helpful before we arrived arranging a tour and transfers to San Jose. She was equally helpful while we were there. Bill took us to the grocery store, changed tour reservations and answered millions of questions. Kudos to the staff at Tulemar! You made us feel like family, not customers. This was our second time in the area and first to Tulemar. If we return, there will be no other option but Tulemar. They have a beautiful property, nice beach with a beach bar, great service from EVERYONE and a great location. What else do you need?

Villa Mot Mot is one of our most popular villas in Tulemar, for just the reasons you mentioned.....the deck....the views.....the personal concierge service provided by Diego and his staff........tropical, rustic luxury living.......it is hard to get away from the deck/views.....but don't miss our beach......warm waters and jungle setting......free kayaks, boogie boards, lounge chairs and umbrellas too.....plus food/beverage service! Hope to see you back soon....

My husband and I recently spent our honeymoon in Costa Rica, and stayed at Tulemar. We could not have been happier! The grounds at Tulemar are beautiful - and THE BEACH! Tulemar has their own private beach. They also have kayaks and boggy boards for the guests to use.
The bungalows and villas also come with their own concierge - Diego and Bill were great! We would just call one of them up if we needed anything - a ride into town, a tour booked, dinner recommendations/reservations, etc. They were very helpful!
We cannot wait to go back to Costa Rica and stay at Tulemar - maybe next year for our anniversary?!

Room Tip: We stayed at Villa Mot Mot lower level - perfect for a couple!

At Tulemar, we found the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. We loved the zip line tour, hiking through the park with our guide ("Mop"), kayaking at the private beach, and just relaxing on the beach or our deck overlooking the Pacific. Our concierge, Mauricio, was wonderful, and took all the stress out of the experience by providing recommendations, booking reservations, and answering all our questions (even helping us choose between unfamiliar brands at the local grocery store). A highlight of the trip was our our evening with Chef Chris and his assistant, Michel, who came to our house and prepared a fabulous dinner, complete with exotic drinks (passion fruit Mojitos - yum!). Although we were told the resort was full, it was so peaceful and serene, we felt like we had our own private slice of paradise.

Great location, million dollar view, beautiful house, lots of activities (don't need to drive cuz it comes in every package), some of the best food I have ever had, nice private beach, close to everything, and best of all the service and the people just amazing. Top trip of my life for sure.

Wow! Is right! Thanks for the review! We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Casa del Mar! It's a wonderful villa in Tulemar; everyone loves the views, the decor and especially the indoor/outdoor showers and jacuzzi spa on the deck, not to mention the services of Mauricio, your own personal concierge. Hope to see you back again....
