“Truly Paradise...”

  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2014

WOW. Where do I start? I have never had service like I had at Tulemar. We were treated as if we were royalty at Tulemar, from our own concierge (Bill) to the bartenders and equipment guys down on the beach and everyone in between. The staff picked us up and took us where we needed to go on site (they also have a couple of restaurants they will shuttle guests to as well, off premises).The views from the private beach and from the infinity pool are like something out of a movie...only better. This place is indescribable.There were never any crowds on the beach. It was quiet and relaxing but also fun and interesting because of the monkeys, sloths, the ability to use the sea kayaks and eat lunch right there on the beach. Our villa was clean, beautiful, had amazing views and a pool. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would recommend Tulemar to anyone interested in visiting Manuel Antonio.

“Above and beyond our expectations”

  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2014

Our family wanted something uniquely Costa Rican in a lush, rain forest setting. We wanted a kitchen and room for our family to spread out. And we wanted to stay in a place where we could walk to restaurants and shops. We got all that and so much more!

The setting - Manuel Antonio is a winding 2 1/2 hour drive from San Jose. Very glad we had an experienced driver navigating the roads! As soon as we pulled into our resort I knew without a doubt the drive was worth it. Tulemar is stunning - lush rain forest gardens and amazing ocean views. The villas are built into the hillside, so everyone has great views. Plenty of restaurants and a good grocery store within walking distance. Even more restaurants toward the public Manuel Antonio beach are just a $4 -6 cab ride away.

We stayed in Nido de Gansos. It literally took my breath away when we walked in and saw the view. The pictures on their website don't do it justice. We liked the location of our villa because it was a quick walk to the main restaurant and an easy hike down to the beach. We always took the shuttle to get back up to our villa though!

The monkeys - We saw more monkeys up close from our villa then we did when we toured Manuel Antonio National Park! We had a group of about 8 squirrel monkeys hanging out and playing on our deck one afternoon for at least 15 minutes! Another morning we had a couple capuchins stop by. We also saw a troupe of howler monkeys swinging across the trees by the beach. Saw two sloths in the trees by the beach as well.

The beach - We spent a good chunk of each day playing in the surf. How amazing to share this beautiful beach with just a handful of families all week! We boogie boarded, kayaked, explored the trails, and lounged in the shade. David took great care of us with shade umbrellas, towels, kayaks, etc. He had the day off our last day there, so we didn't get to say goodbye. Thank you David! And thanks to our concierge Diego for setting us up with stand-up paddle board rentals one morning. That was a blast! Nice to have food and drinks right at the beach too. The kids loved the everything about Tulemar and so did my husband and I. We will definitely be back. Best vacation ever!

“Nido de Gansos, Tulemar...BEST ever!”

  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
My family just returned from a week stay in the fabulous house in Tulemar. I selected Tulemar based on the great TripAdvisor reviews, and it completely lived up to the great reviews, and then some!!!! In addition to the incredible house (more on this later), wonderful beach and amenities in Tulemar, and amazing location in Manuel Antonio, the SERVICE was amazing. Diego (our house manager/concierge) and his lovely, caring team made sure every detail was taken care of.

The communication from when we first reserved the house to our stay was great. We were provided with a list of various activities, grocery fulfillment, transportation options to/from San Jose, and I simply selected that which I was most interested. I received prompt replies and the trip planning was a breeze. Once on the property, Diego and his staff checked in a few times a day, helping us with rides to activities, confirming activities, making reservations, etc. Always with the most delightful attitude and smiles.

The house, Nido de Gansos, is really spectacular. The views from the top floor and pool are even better than the photos. The kitchen was great, and we cooked a few dinners and most breakfasts there. The three bedrooms are all great, as are the bathrooms. The air conditioning was key in the bedrooms, as it was 95 degrees the week we were there.

My kids really loved the beach at Tulemar, and we checked out kayaks and boogie boards several days, and enjoyed the great service from David setting up chairs/umbrellas and getting drinks from the Tiki Bar. They also LOVED seeing all the monkeys and wildlife.

We had many adventures: zip lining with Canopy Safari (my 75 year old mother-in-law even participated); white water rafting on the Saverge River (perfect...adventurous but not too crazy, and the Rafiki Lodge operators were so funny and great); ATV tour through palm grove with Fourtrax (the best part was the stop in Rainmaker Forest); surfing lessons for my 9 year old; photography lessons with my 12 year old (my fav activitiy...Sarah was amazing!); a tour of Manuel Antonio (hot...interesting, but we had seen much of the wildlife by the time we enjoyed this tour). Fav restaurant location for the scenery: El Avion (the boys liked the old C-123 plane)..good food. Fav restaurant for food and service: Agua Azul (amazing! get there at 5pm for good table).

Can't wait to return to Tulemar and Diego's crew. We miss everything already! Many thanks!!!

Perfect Family Trip

  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Our family of 7 stayed here during spring break. This place is absolute perfection. Our villa Nido was amazing. Three levels of beauty. The villas, beach and pools were beautiful. The staff was very nice and made us feel at home. They took time to stop on our way down to the beach to find a sloth in the trees which were hard to see since the kids mentioned they had been looking to try and see one. We had monkeys on our balcony daily which was the highlight of the stay here for the kids. The private beach is wonderful and so is the bar and grill at the beach. The kids hopped around from one pool to another even though we had our own at Nido. This by far,is the best family vacation we have taken in a very long time. We can't wait to come back!
