Our family stayed for one week in one of the Tulemar villas - Casa de Frutas. This house was outstanding - the views were second to none - a panoramic view of the ocean and extremely comfortable and clean furnishings. But, it's not the accommodations that make Tulemar so special - it's the outstanding service you receive. The staff provided...

My family of three stayed for 7 days in one of their bungalows. The room was superb. We were catered to the entire time. They provided van service to all the pool/beach areas within minutes of me calling the front desk. I highly recommend this place. My wife is already planning our next trip. Pura Vida!

The reviews are all true - this place is tropical heaven. Quite literally within five minutes of walking into our bungalow, a troop of squirrel monkeys made their way right by our window. During the ensuing nine days, we also saw howler monkeys, white-faced capuchins, sloths, toucans, and on and on. The pools are lovely, the beach is perfection, the...

Place is beautiful. We stayed in a bungalow. The views from our room were magnificent. Ashley was fabulous in terms of organizing our tours and everything else. Not much to complain about, except that our beds were way too hard. Ashley arranged for mattress toppers which helped a little, but they were not what one would expect at a luxury...
