Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an amazing time at the Tulemar. We stayed in Mot Mot Hideaway. The staff was absolutely amazing - so nice, so accommodating! The beach was gorgeous! Everything you want or need is there. They even have toys for small children. The walking trails are a must to experience. You will see lots of animals along the way. The views from our room were amazing. The local restaurants are wonderful. We did BBQ two times while we were there. Tulemar is a five star property. I cannot say enough great things about it. We will definitely be back.

Villa Mot Mot Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with Tulemar and our bungalow (Villa Mot Mot Hideaway). The property itself is beautiful and very well maintained. The view we had from our terrace was wonderful. Monkeys came up to the bungalow almost every day, and we saw many birds and lizards. Three mornings we were woken up by a howler monkey. The first morning it happened it was quite a wake up call. The private beach is very nice and the lunch we had there was very good. The food at the restaurant at the pool was also very good. The maids are very thorough and the bungalow is in very good condition. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. We had rented a car so we didn't need Bill's or Al's services (concierge) that much, but when we did they went above and beyond. I would highly recommend Tulemar Bungalows to anyone who is looking to stay at a property that offers amazing views, wildlife, and jungle atmosphere.

An amazing week in paradise we won't soon forget!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Tulemar for our honeymoon like the reviewers below. Villa Mot Mot seems to be the unofficial honeymoon suite!

Simply put, this place is amazing! It definitely lived up to all the wonderful reviews I had read... plus the recommendation from a friend who had visited a couple years back.

The property is breathtaking. The room(s) were clean, stylish and comfortable with incredible views! We saw titi, white-faced and howler monkeys several times during our stay... right from our balcony. We even had a pair of toucans visit our villa one day.

Huge thanks to Bill, Diego and Al for the absolutely wonderful service! It was above and beyond what we expected! Bill was amazing and always there to help with anything we needed - as well as things we didn't even think we needed!

The beach is amazing!!! The pools are beautiful. We ate several times at the on site restaurant and had lunch at the beach and everything we had was delicious.

A HUGE thanks to everyone at Tulemar for making our vacation the best one ever! Everyone from the office to the beach shuttle, (Hola Willie!)

And Janet, who always served us our dinner at Buena Vista Del Sol, delivered outstanding service. You all made our stay that much more memorable.

Thank you also to Vanessa, our online concierge for all the help with planning our trip!

DO NOT miss out on this place! It is heaven on earth! I honestly cannot think of one negative thing I could say about our stay. It was perfect in every way!

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from an amazing week in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Our vacation at Tulemar was amazing, both starting with and ending with the staff, especially Al & Diego. The place, Mot-Mot Hideaway, was as shown and did not disappoint in any way. I highly recommend venturing out and trying the food in Quepos and up on the hill as you will get more of an appreciation of the countryside and the cuisine. Your concierge will be more than happy to help you with dining options and other activities.

Went here on my honeymoon, in search of a quiet, low-key, beach friendly place. We had a great time. We stayed in the Mot Mot Hideaway. Here's our breakdown:

Setting - The resort is 20 min from the tiny Quepos airport (takes you to San Jose Intl airport), situated along an active main drag in town. Manuel Antonio is compact, rough around the edges, and very geared toward American tourism. Tulemar sits along the beachline, and our Mot Mot Villa had a gorgeous view of lush plant life and the ocean bay. The beach is small and quiet with a cafe and bar (and free kayaks!). The pool and connecting restaurant are tasteful and very inviting. Our villa was very tasteful, with a luxury bathroom, comfy bedroom, and massive covered porch - which had an outdoor living room and kitchen with all the amenities. There are sloths, monkeys, and interesting wildlife everywhere.

Service -

This is a huge part of the experience, since you rely on staff so much to get you around and help you navigate the experience of being abroad. When you book, a staff arranges everything for you, including your ticket for the small plane ride to Quepos, and your van ride to the resort. They tell you what to bring, what things cost, etc. They are ahead of the game on every detail.

Once there you get a personal concierge who makes sure your every need is met before you ask. The thing we most appreciated about this was that the Tulemar staff seems to earnestly enjoy their work environment. They are very relaxed and seem to have fun at work. This creates a very warm atmosphere to be a part of. They are incredibly accommodating.

Price -

Tulemar is totally reasonably priced for what you get. Don't forget to budget for gratuity, since you'll have the help of 1-2 concierges, and staff help you at the beach (meals, rides to and from).

Overall, we would definitely go back and recommend it to anyone who is visiting the area. It's an amazing stay in an amazing place. If you are coming to Manuel Antonio this is the place. Tulemar will always be a fond memory for us!

Owner's Response: Hi Steve, Thank you for the nice review. Yes, Mot Mot Hideaway is a very special property. What a great honeymoon choice. This property is always reserved far in advance. I am so glad that you were able to book it for your honeymoon. You will have so many wonderful memories. I hope you took a lot of pictures. Everyone will want to see them. Our staff tries very hard to and I know that they will appreciate all of your kind words. Please do come back and stay with us again. Pura Vida, Cindy

The place to be!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this paradise! We rented the downstairs Mot Mot single room to end our trip of the country and were thrilled we made the right decision. The beaches in Manuel Antonio are so so, but here at Tulemar the private cove with beach chair service, kayaks and surrounded by jungle is breath taking. Mot Mot Hideway is a single room with an outdoor kitchen. The view is incredible. Monkeys hung out our our from porch everyday as we relaxed. Stay here!

SPECTACULAR!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 7 night stay at Tulemar. We stayed in the Mot Mot Hideway villa. We cannot say enough about our fabulous stay here. Mot Mot Hideaway is great for two people. It has a large balcony with an ocean view and an outdoor kitchen which we utilized for a couple of our dinners and breakfasts. Every morning we would get up early and go out on our balcony with our coffee and watch the wildlife. The monkeys would almost always come through every morning and afternoon. We felt as if we were living in an animal park for a week. It was absolutely fantastic! We saw several sloths throughout the property, one with her baby attached! We saw lizards, Mot Mot birds, Toucans, as well as a lot of other species of birds. It is a hike down to the beach but the South trail down to it is beautiful and has a small waterfall along its path. They offer a shuttle if you do not want to walk, which we also utilized a couple of times. The beach is private and beautiful and there is a beach bar with great food and drinks. The restaurant on the property is top notch with a beautiful view. We went on a fishing excursion and brought back Mahi Mahi that we had caught to the restaurant and they prepared it for us that night for our dinner. All of the staff at Tulemar is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. We had Jonathan as our concierge and I can't say enough good things about him! He was just a call away and very helpful with suggestions on activities and restaurants. We also want to mention the other staff members that we met that were exceptional. Eric, Xavi, Arlen, Harley, Daniela, Willie, and Pancho Villa/Luis Masis. Hopefully, I have not left anyone out as EVERYONE at Tulemar was fantastic!! We will definitely be back and will recommend to anyone we know looking for a great vacation!
