Tulemar is a beautiful place with amazing grounds, pools, bungalows , and beaches. The restaurant was a bit pricey so we walked into town to eat. The bungalows are not well equipped for cooking. A'ndres our bungalow attendant was amazing. If you are in Manuel Antonio, this is THE PLACE TO STAY!!!!

I recently returned from a stay at the Tulemar Bungalows in Quepos, Costa Rica. The personal service, the bungalows, and the view were simply the best. Our bungalow had 360 degree windows, but were very private and in the jungle canopy. The grounds and facilities were very well maintained. I was especially impressed by the eagerness of the staff to...
