We were on a family vacation with teenagers. From the moment we entered the hotel, we received warm treatment and did not have to wait. At once Geri came up to us, who had stood by us all the time and helped with everything possible even when he was not on duty. Gary was very polite and willing to help...

What an amazing experience! From this beautiful jungle hideaway, we had 360 ocean and jungle views and more wildlife than we could have possibly imagined. Monkeys visited in the morning and in the afternoons the room was a birdwatchers paradise, sloths lounged in a tree just steps from the main pool and iguanas sunned themselves throughout the property. Equally as...

We stayed at Tulemar in Manuel Antonio in early April. The facility and staff provided the exact "Costa Rican" experiance we had hoped for. The staff never says no. Orlando took care of all of our needs. The beach was small and perfect, light waves...enough to body board. Bucolic setting. Animals everywhere.

I can so nothing more in praise than has already been said. We stayed in Bamboo Villa 1 and it was absolutely stunning. The villa was beautiful (but do be aware that there are open stairs between each level, which can be a bit scary if you have a problem with heights!). We were awoken the first morning by a...

If you stay at Tulemar, you do not need to visit the Manuel Antonio National Park! We saw more monkeys and wildlife at the resort without the crowd of the park. We woke up to monkeys on our roof, sloths in so many trees, iguanas, macaws... We had missed the sloth tour in the morning, which we were disappointed about,...

Wow. There is something magical about Tulemar. Perhaps it is the scenery. Or the stellar accommodations. Or the best-in-class dining. Or the on-site "sloth institute" and guided sloth tours. Or the people. I think that it's the people. All of the people. From the General Manager to the the groundskeepers that would go out of their way to show you...

You can read all about how beautiful this place is from other reviews (and still, nothing will prepare you for how gorgeous it is). Instead, I want to focus on the staff, and specifically on our concierge, Mauricio. When my family arrived at Tulemar, we were on the 2nd leg of our Costa Rica trip. We didn't know how long...
