We loved our time at Tulemar! Everyone on the staff was so helpful and gracious. We had a personal concierge and his name was Miguel, he was great!! Our tour guide for Manuel Antonio National Park was phenomenal. His name was Carlos and he was so full of knowledge!! We had the best time and I will be recommending him to all my friends who go to Costa Rica!! We will also be recommending Tulemar Resort.

We liked everything, except that some people would talk on the phone on their balconies and we could hear them like they were talking beside us. Also in the bungalow next to us two teenage boys would be make a lot of noise while on their balcony too. Generally noise caused by other guests is my only issue with our stay. Everything else was great.

When we first arrived, I wasn’t totally thrilled. The beach is not an easy walk away, the water isn’t as blue or clear as Hawaii, the room wasn’t that super. BUT, I had to shift my expectations- this isn’t Maui. What makes it better- the SERVICE is amazing. They’ll shuttle you to the beach and back all day. The food at the Tulecafe is pretty amazing. You can have your meals and drinks at the beach. The water is nice and warm. They give you free kayaks, boogie boards, sand toys. There’s plenty of seating and shade at the beach. Hanging out at the beach was probably our best day. We left the resort to go to a vrbo that was 9x bigger than our casa at Tulemar and at first our entire party was excited to have a giant space. But within a half day, we all agreed we’d much rather spend our time at Tulemar. We’re a large family, traveling with 4 adults, 2 teens & a baby, fairly well traveled and are lucky to travel well & Tulemar will be near the top of our favorite places and we’d love to come back (we don’t visit too many places more than once). So sad Tulemar didn’t have the availability to extend our stay :(

Don’t miss this place!
The staff at Tulemar are excellent - every one of them! The restaurant food was extremely good. The setting was beautiful. We saw a lot of wildlife here! From the window of our room we saw Scarlet macaws, sloths, Capuchin monkeys, and more. We had a great time here and highly recommend this resort.
