The service was better than any resort/hotel/vacation I have ever experienced. In particular, our concierge - Gary - was amazing. Checked in with us several times a day to make sure we had everything we needed. Went...

We were part of a group of 43 friends who visited the BVV over Thanksgiving Week, 2016. For nearly everyone but my family of four (two adults, two kids 12 and 9), this was their first visit to the BVV. I have reviewed the resort before, so I won't devote more time to the absolutely stunning setting, spacious and gorgeous...

Our trip to Costa Rica with several other families was incredible and we would only do it again at Tulamar. Great concierge! Great service! Most friendly and helpful staff you can imagine. The resort is filled with monkeys, macaws, iguanas and sloths. Everything you could want. Thanks Tulemar for a great vacation.

The Tule Casa home was absolutely wonderful. Just stepping into this air conditioned, modern and luxurious space was a treat, but as we exited the kitchen and walked onto the 5 star deck, overlooking the ocean, with all the accommodations for dining, relaxing and entertaining, I was immediately smitten! However, having said all of this, the most memorable part of...

Our stay at Tulemar Resort was absolutely incredible! Don’t even think twice about staying here! This property offers the best of both worlds - a lush tropical jungle teeming with wildlife - monkeys, sloths, Scarlett Macaws, Blue Morpho butterflies, and nature trails that lead you past a waterfall to a stunning private beach. The Sloth Institute is located on the...
