This place is amazing, and the people are a big part of what make it great. We stayed in a bungalow, which worked well for our family of 4. The bungalows are considered their "budget" option, and the decor is a little older, but it was nice for us, especially because our previous stay was in a rustic eco lodge on the Atlantic side of the country. You are assigned a concierge, and ours, Orlando, was great. We could text him for anything we needed. The beach is lovely, and it was nice to have a beach in the resort.

Thank you Elizabeth, for your review and for staying with us at Tulemar Resort. Our Tulemar Bungalows are considered an economical solution for guests looking to stay here in Tulemar. They are considered so because they have no outside space, but do offer a large amount of space for guests to spread out. Glad you enjoyed our personal concierge service which Orlando accomplishes at an extraordinary level. Hope we can host you again, Pura Vida, Chris

We have only good things to say about Tulemar!! The resort, the facilities, the service, and the accommodations were absolutely amazing! Our villa was so nice that we could have just stayed there the whole time, but the area has so much to offer that we had to venture out. Luckily, Tulemar provided us with a personal concierge, Alex, who helped us choose outings, schedule tours and transportation, and made everything very easy on us. The restaurant at Tulemar had amazing choices at every meal, the service was prompt and friendly, and we especially enjoyed the visitors who hung around outside (the adorable squirrel monkeys and mischievous capuchin monkeys!) The pools were perfect, and the beach was even better. The Tulemar shuttle made it easy to get around when we didn't want to walk, but we usually went on foot anyway to enjoy the gorgeous flora and fauna, especially the sloths. I could go on and on about what a wonderful place Tulemar is, so you'll just have to go see for yourself!

My husband and I traveled with 2 other couples and stayed in one of the wonderful villas at Tulemar for 4 nights. We were greeted by Orlando, our personal concierge while we were there. He attended to every detail of our trip: groceries, taxis, time that we wanted housekeeping, suggested alternative restaurants off sites, etc. The views from our villas were gorgeous. The walks around the property were filled with lots of wildlife. Breakfast at the cafe was great, especially when the monkeys came for a visit. The staff knew our names and greeted us warmly. The beach staff made great mojitos and was readily available to set up our chairs. The shuttle was quick to get us when we needed a ride up the hill. We will definitely bring our sons back for another visit. There is much to do in the area.

Room Tip: Villas at the top have great views of the sunset

We had a wonderful stay at Tulemar (Villa 410)- Our villa had a great view for a lot of the wildlife, including a white faced monkey that came for a little dip while we were outside! (And yes, they clean the hot tub every day). The 2 bedroom set-up for the 4 of us was perfect- the kitchen was well stocked and clean. Our concierge. Orlanda was great! He was there to help us for any requests, gave lots of suggestions that added to the trip. Mario at the restaurant was also wonderful!! We hope to visit again soon!

Room Tip: When you book make sure you are within the "forest" and that you'll be able to see the sunset. We were in villa 410, and it was great.

Thank you Ann for your review and for staying with us at Tulemar Resort. Yes the monkeys love to visit the Premium Villas and do splash themselves from the Jacuzzi. Yes, the tubs are cleaned daily. The two and three bedroom Premium Villas are perfect for groups of 4 or more; we're glad you enjoyed! Pura Vida, Chris

Tulemar Resorts is absolutely perfect in every way! David at the beach welcomes you with big smiles and open arms! Your personal concierge helps you plan and coordinate your trip and activities. The staff are wonderful! The villas are beautiful! The food delicious! And it’s very clean! The monkeys and sloths are everywhere! We can’t wait to go back next year with our family and friends to enjoy another vacation in Costa Rica!
