Guestbook comments from the manager

My family of 4 just returned from an amazing week in Costa Rica! Our 2nd half of the trip was in Tulemar, in Villa Mot Mot. The service was amazing, from the time we made the reservation to the time we departed. Our personal assistant Chris sent emails on preparing for our vacation, and ideas on things to do. He even sent directions for our drive from Arenal to Manuel Antonio, and gave us a personal tour of Tulemar when we arrived. He set up excursions, made our reservations, and was always available. The grounds and private beach were amazing! Plenty of wildlife, pools, and shuttles to help with the steep hills. Loved everything about our stay- the view, the free kayaks and boogie boards, large Villas, location, service! This was definitely one of the best vacations that we have ever have. We will definitely be back!



This is not a 5 star property, it is a 10 star property.

A Jungle Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had taken a trip to Costa Rica early in our lives and wanted our kids to experience the natural beauty and Pura Vida spirit first-hand. Suffice to say, the family was not disappointed with our stay at Tulemar! Villa Mot Mot served as our home base and was a great location with access to the on-site restaurant and pools. Diego acted as our concierge and did everything to make our stay a memorable one -- from recommendations on excursions, restaurant choices and local knowledge, we were confident that the choices we made allowed us to experience the best that the area had to offer. Diego is the best! All staff on hand were excellent, from the servers to the shuttle drivers and security personnel -- shout-out to Jose who acted as one of our guides on a zipline tour and surprised us later by serving us drinks on-site as our bartender -- and did everything they could to make us feel at home. As for the location, Tulemar truly is a special place. The private beach is an awesome playground for families. With proximity to the Manuel Antonio National Park you're guaranteed a window into the wide variety of animal and plant species in the region -- monkeys, sloths, iguanas and a variety of bird species were regular sightings -- but you don't often have to leave the grounds to see them. Where else can you watch a mother sloth and her baby eat leaves on a tree -- an arms-length away -- while enjoying a cocktail in an infinity pool overlooking the ocean? No guarantees, but it was a special moment that we'll never forget. Tulemar we love you and can't wait to return.

1st Class Accomodations

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I just spent 5 days at Tulemar and loved it!! The hotel grounds were beautiful and the accommodations were outstanding. We stayed in Mot Mot Upper level which was very spacious with great views and large balcony. There were monkeys swinging on the trees in front of our bungalow, and we had monkeys visit us on our balcony. We saw plenty of birds, butterflies, and frogs from our bungalow as well. The bungalow itself had a bedroom on one side and sitting room and kitchen with table and chairs on the other side (a wall split the two sides). The bathroom could be entered from either the bedroom or sitting room.The beds were comfortable and there was also a trundle bed/couch in the sitting room.

The hotel is set in a jungle setting, so the grounds were beautiful. There were monkeys and sloths in the trees. We saw a mother and baby sloth in the tree by the pool. There was always something interesting to see. Our bungalow was by the adult pool and restaurant, so we were in a convenient location. The beach was about a 5 - 1- minute walk or you could take the shuttle.

The service was 1st class. The staff at Tulemar were extremely helpful and friendly. They were always willing to help. Julien organized our transportation from San Jose to Tulemar as well as my sister's boat tour. The van that picked us up from our San Jose hotel was right on time (a little early). The driver was friendly and stopped after an hour or so for drinks and a restroom break. Willie was also amazing with setting up tours, helping us with our safe and driving us to the beach. The restaurant staff (Frederick) were very accommodating. I'm a difficult eater, but they always prepared something I could eat. We chose to eat in our room or at the hotel, but there were also several restaurants within walking distance. A supermarket was also a few blocks from the hotel. A must stay!

We Love Villa Mot Mot!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and 13 year old granddaughter stayed 3 nights in Villa Mot Mot out of our 2 week trip. We wanted to spend a week but they were booked. This is my second stay at Villa Mot Mot and my granddaughter's first visit and we both agree that this is our favorite place to stay in Costa Rica. I have travelled many times to this country and I will continue to come back to Villa Mot Mot. My favorite thing about Tulemar is the beautiful private beach and the individual Villas and Location. One of my favorite things about Villa Mot Mot is the large wrap around balcony with sofa, chairs, tables, grill, hammock, rocking chairs and monkeys. We stayed in the upstairs of the Villa which has one bedroom with 2 queens, bathroom with 3 shower heads/rain shower, Nice kitchen with 2 burner stove, small refrigerator but everything you could possibly want in appliances, including ice maker and wine cooler. Living room has a trundle bed and is beautifully decorated and all rooms have floor to ceiling windows with 360 view. We will be back and hopefully for a much longer stay. Concierges, Chris & Diego, are like friends you have known forever and are so helpful with restaurant info, tours, shopping, etc. They call daily to see if there is anything you need from them-thank you! And, thank you Susan for offering your wonderful Villa!

Owner's Response: Susan, I am so happy that you loved the Villa a second time around! We loved having you. There is something special about people that we have over and over again, they become like part of our Costa Rica family. Diego and Chris could not be better, we are very lucky to have met Diego close to the first time we ever went to Costa Rica. Diego then brought on Chris which just adds to the character and warmth of Villa Mot Mot. Thank you so much for writing to let others know how much you like it at Villa Mot Mot and I can't wait to hear about your plans for your next trip, hopefully it will be longer, sorry, I seem to remember that it was hard to get you upstairs on your last trip and this time we could not accommodate all of your dates. Next time!!!!

We just returned from Manuel Antonio where we spend the first 2 night at the very popular Hotel Si como no and the rest of our stay at Villa Mot Mot. We much preferred the Villa over the Hotel because of all the additional amenities (like the kitchen and the private beach )the overall feel of privacy and coziness and the unbelievable beauty of the view.The villa is ideally situated inside the Tulemar Gardens complex, witch is a gated community that has direct access to a lovely and quiet beach. Tulemar is also within walking distance to all the gourmet restaurants and a 5 minute drive to the bigger beach ad National Park in Manuel Antonio. We expected a lot based on descriptions and pictures we found on the Internet before making reservations and Villa Mot Mot certainly lived up to our expectations. We were greeted upon arrival by Diego, the property manager and a great guy, and received a full tour of the property. The villa is very well decorated and has all the comforts including plasma TV and a fully functional kitchen. I have to say that the best asset was the large terrace that raps around the villa where we saw the most beautiful sunsets and met all kind of wildlife everyday we stayed there: my children favorites were the white faced monkeys that visited us in the morning . The area offers many choices as far as activities: from rafting to zip lining. Because we were traveling with 2 small children(2 and 5) we spent most of our time at the beach where we mastered body surfing and sand crabs hunting ( no worry ,we let them all go!) . The fact that boogie boards, sand toys and kayaks as well as snorkeling gears were all free of charge was a nice plus. Getting back to the villa was always the highlight of our day and by the end of our stay we knew many of the friendly people that work inside the facility. We LOVED our stay at the Mot Mot and we are already planning our next visit in this little corner of paradise.
