“Top notch”

  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
I am not sure where to begin. This resort is top notch end to end. Our family of 4 stayed here at the end of March and could not have expected anything more. I traveled quite extensively and never have been as happy as we were here. The grounds are beautiful and the people are wonderful.


-Beautiful beach with private access for guests and owners. Dave really takes care of the guests. He made the beach experience nearly perfect.
-Plenty of pools that all provide an excellent view and just the right level of indulgence.
-Food service really hit the spot for the entire, the Fish tacos and fish sandwiches are delicious
-The staff is extremely attentive and really look after you, I would like to personally thank Danny again for helping us resolve our rental car issues and staying late to meet the Avis rep while we were on our sunset cruise. That was really unexpected and above and beyond any expectations.
-All of the tours Ashley set up for for us were great. I highly recommend the horseback riding!
-The ground are absolutely gorgeous and housekeeping kept everything clean. Wildlife everywhere including sloths, toucans and monkeys, the staff went out of the way to point these out.
-Ashley's brownies

Top notch all of the way. An experience not to be missed.

Lovely Place.....

  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We stayed in a Buena Vista Select, which provided ample space and great views.
The location of our villa was optimal for our family. We had a pool that was right down the pathway and it was a quick 10 minute walk to the beach. The private beach was terrific. The water is the perfect temperature to wade and swim. The staff is very attentive and the food/drinks were very tasty especially the pina coladas!
Our boys enjoyed the monkeys that visited us in the mornings on our patio. They were fun to watch make their way down to our patio in an assebly line, tree branch to branch.
Our personal concierge, Danny, was very helpful on tours and local dining.
Orlando at reception was always friendly and happy.
My husband loved his massage so much he had to have it twice. I also enjoyed my relaxing facial by Yolanda.

The entire property is in a gated community. We hiked almost every morning and got a great workout from the steep inclines of the property.
We also ventured into downtown Quepos by bus. The bus stop is right across the street from the property. We went to the market on Friday afternoon to get fresh mangos and a great dinner at a local soda.
Overall, our stay was great. The only complaint is I wish we could have stayed longer. I plan on returning to Tulemar.
Thank you for a memorable family vacation.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We just returned from a one week stay at Tulemar. We stayed in a very spacious One Bedroom Select Bungalow. We had beautiful sunset views from our deck. Everything about the Tulemar was wonderful. The staff -- from the receptionists to the shuttle drivers to the beach/pool attendants-- are outstanding. They truly go out of their way to ensure you and your family are having fun. The private beach at Tulemar is very nice-- there's chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and kayaks to use. Walking through the property we saw as many animals as we saw at Manual Antonio-- white faced monkeys, squirrel monkeys, iguanas, sloths, and so many kinds of birds. The restaurants at Tulemar are very good and there are several other great restaurants about a 5 minute walk away. We totally enjoyed our time at Tulemar and would highly recommend it. Your family would love it in Tulemar.

Love it!

This was my first time visiting Costa Rica (getaway with my boyfriend), and we could not have picked a more perfect place to start our vacation. We visited 4 different areas of the country on our trip and I kept wanting to come back to the Tulemar resort.

The One Bedroom Select with a deck was gorgeous and private with a view of the water and trees all around. The room was so romantic and of course they have a maid service, so everything was nice and clean. The resort is also gated with a guard letting people in and out, so it is very secure. I woke up the first morning to baby monkeys literally 4 feet away from my window on a branch!! The resort has a nice restaurant with EXCELLENT drinks!!! The BEST part was the PRIVATE/SAFE beach that you could either walk down to or drive (parking spaces available). It was amazing, we were able to eat lunch and have drinks on the beach (bar/grill located at beach). The wait staff was so friendly and the booze/fresh juice mixes were amazing!! I was able to leave my $4,000 dslr camera on the beach while we boogie boarded (complimentary boards/towels/chairs, etc) and I didn't worry about it at all! This was truly the most amazing place. We loved it so much, we even looked into buying a unit in the resort. I can't say enough good things about this place, honestly I could spend an entire week just on the grounds and be as happy as a clam. I took some beautiful photos and look at them often. EXCELLENT!! Thank you Cindy for suggesting this property.

Fantastic Vacation

  • Submitted: Feb 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
My wife and I stayed here for nine nights in late January in a One Bedroom Select Villa. The property is amazing with great views of the ocean. We were visited by monkeys on our deck daily and saw many more animals throughout the property. The staff was great and treated us like friends the whole time we were there. We did have some problems with the safe in our room not working and with one of our ac units not working but both problems were fixed in a timely manner. On a side note we highly recommend fishing in late January it was fantastic. Also a thank you to the drivers on the property they were extremely friendly always prompt and I hope the management will give them a personnel thank you from me after reading this review. In short we highly recommend this villa and Tulemar. Also a thank you to Cindy for setting us up with this property. She was correct. Tulemar is paradise!

Rain-forest Paradise

  • Submitted: Feb 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
We loved staying at Tulemar. The view from our One Bedroom Villa Select was incredible. The deck was wonderful all day long. We turned the AC off during the day and had the sliding doors open to the deck. There was an abundance of animals to see from the deck all day. You never have to leave Tulemar. They have everything you could want. A private beach (we loved this), four swimming pools, walking trails, bar and grill at the beach, and a restaurant. If you do not want to walk to the beach, you can take a shuttle. Everyone who works in Tulemar is very friendly. They go out of their way to help you with anything you want or need. Our concierge Julien even took us to the grocery store. There are restaurants right outside the main gate. We walked to a couple of those and enjoyed each one. I recommend this place to everyone of all ages. It is a top notch place.

Paradise and Beyond!

  • Submitted: Feb 26, 2014

I don't even know where to begin...
Right, let's begin with the staff. Exceptional would be one way to describe the folks who work at Tulemar. Outstanding would be another.
Our first point of contact was with Julien during the booking phase and he really set the tone as to what you can expect.
Julien made everything painless.
From San Jose you can either drive, be driven, or take a tiny little plane to Quepos which is the city where Tulemar essentially is. (Technically it's Manuel Antonio but there is no airport in MA so you fly to Quepos and it's a 20 minute drive from there). Julien took care of all the bookings for these travel needs making everything run smoothly and seamlessly.
Next, I needed a cake in the room for our arrival for our sons birthday. No problem. It was there. It was perfect. It was delicious.
Our next point of contact was Bryan, our "personal concierge" (we didn't even know we were going to have a personal concierge, tres fancy!).
Bryan is beyond fabulous. Funny, responsive, goes the extra mile. As an example we didn't know where we wanted to have dinner on Valentines Day and mentioned it casually to him before going off for surf lessons. Low and behold as we are surfing a 20 minute drive away who should appear on the beach but Bryan. He brought a menu over for us to check out so he could make a reservation for us while we were out.
I could gush about the people at Tulemar for pages but I will stop now.
The point is Costa Rica's tourism industry knows how to make guests to their country feel beyond welcome.
Other points on Tulemar. It is located to everything you would want or need. Home to the phenomenal guest services! Because of the size and gradation of the environment there are drivers to pick you up and drop you off whenever and wherever you want on the property and they are free! The cars are clean and the drivers themselves are awesome. Friendly and helpful and more than willing and eager to pull over to point out the howler monkeys, sloths and white face monkeys that are ALL OVER the place. I can imagine if you have small kids they will die of excitment seeing all the wildlife.
The room! How can I forget about the room?!?! Spacious, clean, GOOD AC, huge balcony often visited by monkeys. We will definitely be back. Plan your trip and book it now! They sell out very far in advance. Thank you Cindy for suggesting this wonderful property.

Trip of a lifetime

  • Submitted: Jan 25, 2014

We stay for our 25th anniversary and had the time of our lives! The views, the monkeys,, the beach! It was fabulous. We loved walking to restaurants and to the beach. We stayed in a BV one bedroom select with a deck and loved it! We can't wait to go back. Chris our concierge made everything easy for us and made us feel right at home. He helped us plan fun excursions . We surfed , we zip-lined and we went on an awesome jungle buggy tour to the waterfalls. It was all so much fun! We loved our place. We loved the beach, the animals and the view. And we loved the personal touch of having Chris checking on our needs throughout our stay! It was paradise!

Bar far the best, Tulemar

  • Submitted: Jan 25, 2014

My wife and I stayed at Tulemar for four nights and it was an absolutely incredible experience. I will tell you that this review will highlight the room we stayed in and the efforts of one employee who made our visit so special. However, without seeing the other units I am sure they are of the same quality as ours and all of the employees with whom we had contact were helpful, friendly, extremely personable, and would do anything to help in any way.

We stayed in a BV one bedroom select. This unit is amazing. You enter into a small kitchenette and in front of you is the most spectacular view of the ocean, and late in the day, the setting sun. There is an over sized living area beyond the kitchenette (which also has a large ice maker) that opens out on to the balcony/deck. You open the sliding glass doors and you are on a wrap-around balcony that has a 270 degree view of the rain forest, the beach and the ocean. There is even a hammock on the balcony. You are up fairly high so you have an unobstructed view of everything! The bathroom is large and the bedroom has a king bed and glass windows. The entire unit is air conditioned. It is a wonderful unit with an absolutely amazing view. We will also share with you that the last morning we were there, we were having breakfast on the balcony and 8-10 capuchin monkeys made their way on to the roof of our unit to get to the bushes and plants next to the balcony to eat berries and nuts. It was one of many highlights we had while there.

Only a short walk down the path from the unit is a pool and if you are energetic you can walk down to the beach, although it is a fairly good walk. Tulemar provides on demand van service throughout the property including to and from the beach. The beach here is secluded and Tulemar offers beach towels, chaises, boogie boards and kayaks free of charge. There is a wonderful beach bar where meals and drinks can be purchased. This is an exceptionally well-run property and first class in every way.
One of the things that happens when you make a reservation at Tulemar/Buena Vista is that you are contacted by a concierge who will make reservations and arrangements prior to your arrival, and who will also provide service to you after you arrive. We were fortunate to have Chris as our concierge and he was incredible. He arranged taxis for us to and from the airport, arranged tours and more. There is nothing they will not do for their guests. This is a must stay. We will be back.

High Expectations Met

  • Submitted: Jan 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
My wife and I just completed the best vacation of our lives in Costa Rica. For most of the trip, we stayed in a Tulemar Garden Resort One Bedroom Select. Nestled in rain forest habitat, we enjoyed many a spectacular sunset from our balcony. The excursions that were set up by Tulemar staff were extraordinary. Emily, one of Tulemar's finest, did a fantastic job of arranging our adventures; horseback-riding into the rain forest to waterfalls and nature-made pools, guided kayaking in a mangrove swamp, and an amazing last-night dinner with a private chef preparing a scrumptious four-course meal in our bungalow. I'm a well-seasoned photographer, and all of my photo-taking expectations were met in that regard. My wife and I highly recommend both Tulemar and its exceptional staff for anyone's dream vacation. I came across this area on TripAdvisor highly recommended. I contacted Cindy from her ad on HomeAway and she set it up. Can't wait to come back.
