My family owns property here in Tulemar Gardens. We have offered our home for rent here for several years. Recently we have started booking rentals for our friends who also have homes here. This is one of those units.

Ed Houck purchased this bungalow in 2005

After looking for a long time in Manuel Antonio for a home to buy, we finally found that Tulemar Gardens was the only location with all paved roads to the home, a private beach and a gated community. We fell in love love with the area.

The view from our bungalow was amazing

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2006
We spent the first five days of our honeymoon at the Tulemar Bungalows and it was even better then we could have imagined. The view from our bungalow was amazing - it was the end of the rainy season and we had some amazing sunsets to admire. The staff was helpful from the moment we checked in until we left. They booked our canopy tour (we highly recommend this) and insane ATV adventure without any problems. They also recommended some great local restaurants when we wanted to go out to eat.

If you go to the national park, don't take the tour, just walk around on your own, you can eavesdrop on someone else's tour if they are looking at something interesting but it's not worth getting stuck with a guide for hours.

The restaurant at Tulemar was good, we had read that it wasn't the best, but it was fine with us and it was so nice to be recognized every day by the wait staff.

The private beach is so relaxing - never thought we would share and entire beach with only two iguanas and a bar tender!

My boyfriend and i just returned

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Jan 2007
My boyfriend and i just returned a few days ago. We loved everything about the Tulemar. We stayed in a private bungalow (room 112) which had beautiful views and was at the end of the path (no foot traffic). The property is located on the top of a hill and has shuttle service down to a private beach, which it shares with Buena Vista. The beach is small, but usually pretty empty. They have a small bar and offer food catered from the restaurant (i highly recommend the pina coladas, but the burger was awful). The beach offers free boogie boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, and kadima.

Some of the furniture and fixtures in the room were a little bit outdated, but it didn't really matter because the views took all our attention. Everything was well kept and very clean, but we felt if they modernized a few things it would be worth it.

Randall from reception was incredibly helpful with everything from getting us settled, to helping with dinner reservations, to scheduling activities. We went rafting with Amigos del Rio and would highly recommend it. All of the restaurants are very casual and inexpensive. Dinner at Ronny's Place was delicious and under $60!

My favorite thing about the Tulemar is the fact that it is surrounded by nature and wildlife. One morning we woke up to find a sloth in the tree outside our window, and the beach has a few iguanas. We never saw any monkeys in the property, but we could hear them. Definitly go to the Manuel Antonio National Park- we saw tons of monkeys there. And for anyone scared of snakes (like we were), we didn’t see any on our entire trip.

The private beach was so nice and calm

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2006
Originally we were going to stay at the Hotel Makanda, but I took way too long to confirm and it was cancelled. We ended up booking Tulemar the night before due to the reviews here. I am so gald we did because it was such a beautiful location.
The private beach was so nice and calm with snorkeling, kayaks, sand toys for the kids, and boogie boards. It had an adorable beach bar, and great service from those down there.
The rooms were large with small kitchen amenities that was nice and would be perfect with kids. The bedroom overlooked one of the best scenes I've ever witnessed.
We only ate breakfast due to the reviews of the food and it was more than fair and the service excellent.
Diego checked us in and out and I truly couldn't of asked for better service from him. He should own his own hotel with the attention he gives.
We went without the kids and then stayed in the Gaia, but if we come back I think this would be the perfect place to come with large groups and children. We would definitly rebook here.

There are not enough words to describe Tulemar’s magnificent experience.
Everything was beyond any expectation: the private beach, the unbelievable views from the bungalow and restaurant, the helpful and kind staff…so many things that gathered gave me the satisfaction of choosing the right place to spend my very little and precious vacation time.

The exclusive beach is beautiful as always

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2006
The exclusive beach is beautiful as always and my family and I enjoyed its tranquility and amazing view it offered.
This was my 5th trip to Manuel Antonio and Tulemar Bungalows offers the most spectacular view of any of the hotels in the area.
We have traveled all around and have seen several options but they have our heart, it is just like going back home.

We will be back

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2006
My family very much enjoyed staying at Tulemar Bungalows. I made the unfortunate decision in my planning of staying at two properties. We moved to La Maraposa and I kicked myself for doing so. Tulemar's staff are more friendly, the area more peaceful and the accommodations far superior. We will be back

The bunglows are spread out on a hill

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2006
The rooms, staff and beach and Tulemar were fantasic. The bunglows are spread out on a hill side and there's a real sense of privacy and peacefulness. Our room was spacious and clean and we loved the panaramic views of the ocean and hillside. This is more like renting a condo than staying at a hotel. It's not like Si Como No where the rooms are clustered around centralized grounds (although the grounds at Si Como No were quite impressive on a short visit).

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The private beach is a huge plus and we used it every day.

The restaurant was unremarkable and I wouldn't recommend it other than for breakfast. For great coffee and pastries, try Cafe Milagro a few buildings down the road.

We would definitely stay at Tulemar again.

Our bungalow was very nice--clean,

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2006
We stayed at Tulemar in a bungalow for a few nights, and it was fantastic--the bungalows feel like they are out on the edge of the hill, so you get great views of the ocean.

Our bungalow was very nice--clean, well-decorated, and a good size for two people. It felt luxurious and pampered.

You can call a car to take you down to the private beach, since it is a very steep and long walk--we recommend that you ask the front desk to have the driver call when he has arrived--a few times when they were busy, the wait took 15 minutes, which can get annoying if you are waiting outside.

We loved the private beach--it was quiet and secluded, and in addition to the bar, they provide lounge chairs and umbrellas, boogie boards, and kayaking equipment for guests. We stayed until sunset on both days that we were there, and it was gorgeous.

Tulemar is a great place to stay

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2005
Tulemar is a great place to stay considering the many options in the Manuel Antonio area. The views from the bungalows are the best thing about the room- walls of glass all around. The decor was quite beige; there's nothing special at all going on there. It did seem dated, but so much focus is on the wildlife in the trees outside, it doesn't really matter. The beach at the end of the long hill was worth the ride down- it was a private cove of blue water and rainforest! We lounged the day away sipping pina coladas from the beach bar and played in the warm water. If we hadn't had that experience, maybe Tulemar would have felt overpriced.

Manuel Antonio is just down the street

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2006
We spent 5 days in a bungalow here and really enjoyed it. The staff takes great care of you; the pool and beach are great; Manuel Antonio is just down the street, and you don't even have to leave the resort to see monkeys and tree sloths. It's definitely a resort in its structure and vibe, but it's small enough that you don't feel like you're in club med. The food is generally mediocre, but you can find things that are acceptable, and the breakfast is great.
