Bar far the best, Tulemar
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.
