I stayed at Villa Mot Mot which has two separate bungalows. I was on the top floor with the most glorious deck looking out through lush green rainforest to the spectacular ocean. The attention to detail inside the apartment was perfect. I could live here! It has everything you need, from kitchen appliances, to a great selection of books. I...

We wanted our honeymoon to be unique, somewhat rustic, and filled with adventure. Our time in CR was exactly that! Tulemar is a resort best suited for the physically fit- the property is very steep and requires some hiking to get around (especially to the beach, which was about 20 minutes down the mountain). They DO offer a complimentary shuttle,...

We packed up all five kids for their first trip to Costa Rica and Tulemar was the perfect resort, with the feel of a private house but the security and amenities of a spectacular resort.

We stayed in Casa Mirador, but all the rooms (bungalows) looked great, Tulemar is a gated property, very clean and modern, with great views. Medium sized private beach that was not crowded, had food and bar service, and free use of chairs, umbrellas, and kayaks, lots of monkeys and iguanas. A couple of nice pools, and a decent restaurant.

My girlfriends and I had stayed here in 2011 (October). The resort was awesome - well landscaped, onsite restaurant and the villas themselves were incredible. The concierge service was great - We booked a Ziplining trip and water rafting trip through them. The location of the resort is unbeatable - right at the entrance of the Manuel Antonio National Park.
