My wife and I took our four sons (20,18,17,17) along with one son's girlfriend on this vacation. We stayed in Casa 405 in the Tulemar resort. We also had a nearby (100 meters away)bungelo for some of the boys to sleep in. Only four of us stayed at 405. There are two bedrooms each with a private bath. However, the shower is outside which was fun. Just make sure the privacy shade is closed when you use it. The commode is also outside but when you see the configuration with the shower, will realize that it make complete sense in their climate. Overall, Casa 405 was clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of the ocean. There was a clean, semi-private (only guests staying at one of the Casa's could use it) pool within easy walking distance. There was a private beach at the bottom of the resort and there is a shuttle for those not up to the walk down to it. The walk back up to the top has some extremely strenuous grades but if you are fit, the walk makes for a great morning workout (I went up and down 4x in the morning). We had a private chef come in every morning which made the entire vacation for my wife - no cooking. We had fresh fruit, eggs, pancakes and juice every morning for breakfast. Every night, we came back to cold drinks and very fresh fish. My one son, who would not eat fish at home, became addicted to the fresh fish. We had a lot of laughs over that. We had daily maid service and always came back to a clean Casa. Everyone was, as my kids called it "chill". We fished, went atv'ing, toured the Rainmaker rain forest, saw monkeys every morning, toured the Manuel antonio Park, shopped, and laughed - a lot. We have a very close family and we all rated it as one of our very best.
