Tulemar bungalows and grounds are very, very special. We stayed in Casa de las floras, a 2 bedroom updated bungalow and it was "gorgeous". It's hard to even describe the view, we were high up on a hill, there are bungalows close by, but our view was unobstructed. The bed upstairs was a comfy king sized bed and it's in...

We stayed at Buena Vista Luxury Villas/Tulemar with our family of 5, kids aged 6,11,14. Not only was our villa beautiful with all amenities, the customer service was even better, quite amazing. Maria and Angie at reception/front desk were so helpful in every way, whether it be babysitting or getting us in contact with the right people within the resort,...

Please look at my other reviews previous years of this property. I don't want to be saying it all over again, but our stay here is SO comfortable and easy. The staff is really what keeps us from trying other places. We had a very attentive concierge, Gary who checked in with us often. David who takes care of everything...

We thoroughly enjoyed our Quepos stay. Orlando was the ultimate concierge, checking up on us and making sure that anything that we needed was there for us. The bungalow accommodations were beautiful, the very quiet pool with wildlife all around was unparalleled. He made reservations for us for dinners, whitewater rafting and his knowledge of the area was very helpful....

We are a little delayed in writing this review but wanted to make sure I did it because our stay was amazing! The service here and our concierge Orlando was truly outstanding. The property was incredible and we had an amazing time. Spend the money and have Alex cook you a private meal one night. It was one of the...

My husband and I stayed at Tulemar or Buena Vista Villas last week and we didn't want to leave! The property is really nice and right outside of the property there are quite a few fun places to eat and even to grocery shop to stock your fridge if you want. There is also a bus stop nearby if you...

The only thing more amazing than the beauty of this resort is the staff and service. This was our 4th and final stop on our wedding / honeymoon getaway in Costa Rica. We went from getting married at an all inclusive just south of Nicaragua to Tamarindo to Arenal and finally Manual Antonio. hindsight being 20/20 we should have cut...

A friend and I stayed in one of the 3 bedroom villas for a week and it was amazing! We couldn't have had a better experience! The resort is gorgeous and the sunset views are spectacular. Squirrel monkeys and sloths were just hanging around (literally) all over. The real highlight was the amazing staff! Our concierge, Andres, really made the...

My husband and I went to the Tulemar Resort in January for 7 nights and absolutely loved it! We stayed in the standard villa (Little Iguana Villa) and had a beautiful terrace overlooking the jungle.

Tulemar is perfect for us. We will be back again and again. He food is excellent. The services outstanding. There are lots of trees at the beach if you want to avoid the sun, as we did. We think of the suites as treehouse but modern and luxurious they are. There is nothing lacking!
