Nido de Gansos a must

It was a life long dream of ours to go to the amazing country of Costa Rica and we did a ton of research where to stay. I booked our vacation at Tulemar based upon two things--the high reviews here on Tripadvisor, and the excellent help and responsiveness from Julien during the booking process. I emailed with Julien and he was very helpful in our decision where we would stay on the property. We were two families with 3 children, aged 6 and under. We stayed for six nights in Nido de Gansos.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Julien and our concierge for the week, Mauricio! They both were very friendly and Mauricio took us to our house for the week. We were blown away as the door swung open to reveal the most gorgeous place we have seen. We were giddy with excitement and ran out onto the balcony and the view took our breath away. Views of the Pacific and mountains...it didn't feel real! Mauricio had a huge smile on his face watching us, as I'm sure he frequently sees this with the guests. We mentioned that we were hungry, and he took us down to the beach restaurant on the property. Lou, the restaurant manager was great and the food was very good too. The view was perfect of the ocean and beach.
Mauricio was wonderful to us and made sure we had everything we could possibly need for our stay. He took us to the local grocery so we could get stocked up on essentials, helped plan our week with any excursions we wanted and set up dinner reservations for us. He also coordinated a private chef for us on our last night. The meal was exceptional! Fresh fish, and pineapple flambe....what a great end to our trip! Mauricio made sure everything was easy for us and that was very appreciated by our group! We always felt we were in good hands with him and we had a top-notch experience and stay while in Tulemar.
The house we stayed in was well-appointed, beautiful, and clean. We were very comfortable in the home, even with two families. The view was perfect, and the pictures don't do it justice. There are neighboring homes, but we didn't really notice them and it was very quiet. There was a daily maid service and every morning she left us with a fresh pack of coffee from Cafe Milagro. Bonus!
The property is very well maintained, the pools are clean and very pretty. One of the family pools had bar service which was great after a long day of zip lining. You have to stay in Tulemar. It is a must.
