Located in Tulemar, a 33 acre, gated and secure, residential resort located right in the heart of Manuel Antonio. Our villas are surrounded by jungle and the wildlife is abundant; you’ll see monkeys, sloths and exotic birds throughout the property and on our hiking trails.

Villa Cielito is a luxurious, 2 story, 2 bedroom retreat nestled into the jungle hillside. It offers panoramic views of the ocean and lush jungle.

A unique feature of this casa is its location; on a level area with adjacent parking, easy for those that might have difficulty with steps and ramps leading to the front door. This villa has one of the best panoramic ocean views of any villa in Tulemar!

The villa is luxuriously furnished and has high end appliances throughout. As you enter through the huge teak door you pass into the over-sized living and kitchen area. There is also a 1/2 bath and a large daybed / TV on this floor. This leads to large wrap-around veranda with stunning view of the ocean and jungle, an outdoor dining area and a jacuzzi tub.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lots of squirrel monkeys on the deck of Villa Cielito. Great views of beautiful Macaws flying overhead daily! The wildlife here never disappoints. Everyone at Tulemar was great, they always are! Everyone at the front desk, the shuttle drivers, people at the beach- Dave and Daniella especially, and our favorite- Chris. He always goes above and beyond for us and we really appreciate it!! We always look forward to seeing him. Of course it's always great to see Dave too! (...) Villa Cielito had a great view, many monkeys on the deck and wonderful outdoor/indoor showers. Tulemar is our favorite vacation spot. The property is beautiful and very well maintained, all staff we encounter are super friendly, courteous and will help you with anything you need and there is always plenty of wildlife to see. Can't wait for our next visit!

Stunning property, unbeatable view, great service

  • 5 of 5

My family (my wife, me and our two sons, ages 14 and 11) ended our week-long vacation in Costa Rica with a 3 night stay at Casa Cielito at Tulemar. As soon as we opened the door to the Villa we were immediately wishing we had booked it for longer! The property is quite possibly the most gorgeous place we have ever stayed. The view is absolutely spectacular from all of the rooms - although we spent most of our time on the balcony (including eating all of our dinners there - because why go out and miss the sunset?). The casa is well furnished - gourmet kitchen, jacuzzi on the balcony, smart TV, luxury bedding, washer/dryer, etc. And the indoor/outdoor showers were fantastic!

Chris, our concierge, was great. He (and Julien) answered all of my zillions of questions with patience as I was planning the trip. Chris set up a couple of activities for us. Chris also gave us a tour of the grounds when we arrived, checked in with us daily, and even brought us a plate of warm brownies that were delicious. Chris also set us up with private chef Jose and his assistant Rudy for a gourmet dinner for our last night. That was a big splurge for us but well worth it. The food was delicious and the service was perfect. My only wish is that we had thought to do it on the first night so we could have eaten the leftovers instead of leaving that all behind when we checked out.

The grounds are incredible. We saw more wildlife here than anywhere else on our trip. Sloths, monkeys, lizards, iguanas, birds and butterflies. The landscaping is lush and the flowers are bright and beautiful. We loved the pools and the beach is even nicer than Manuel Antonio - which is saying something! We just wished we had more time to chill there to enjoy the beach.

The location is perfect - between Manuel Antonio beach and Quepos. There are restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. We loved El Avion restaurant with its beautiful view and surprisingly great food.

If you stay at Tulemar, be sure to plan for enough time to just relax and enjoy. It is a wonderful place to stay, and the service is top notch. We can't wait to go back and visit again!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Family of six stayed at Tulemar for three nights in late November. We had Cielito, a two level villa with two bedrooms on the lower level. Each BR had two twin beds and a half bath. There was also a day bed at the top of the stairs to the upper level. Upper level included the kitchen, living room, a half bath, and the expansive deck. Lower level BRs and bath are identical mirror images of each other. Bedrooms are somewhat small but the baths are killer, mostly due to the huge shower area. Overall the villa had a high end feel to it with multiple lighting options on dimmers, swanky fixtures, and brand new big screen TVs. Kitchen was well equipped with small electrics and Samsung appliances. There was even a separate ice maker under the counter next to the dishwasher, so ice was never in short supply. The best part is the view. Unlike other villas at Tulemar, Cielito has awesome vista views to the north, east, and northwest. Sitting on the huge deck (complete with jacuzzi) contemplating the view made us feel very privileged indeed. We saw tree iguanas, monkeys, toucans, and lots of other birds from the deck.

The beach is down the hill. Management provides free shuttle vans on a few minutes' notice. The beach is great. It is enclosed in a cove so it has a private feeling to it, and it is only available to Tulemar guests. The sand is very fine, almost like silt.

At Tulemar you get a concierge who answers the phone whenever you need anything at all. The system worked great for us. Chris M. was our concierge and we found him to be universally knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. He arranged taxis, recommended a restaurant, and arranged our zipline tour flawlessly. Local knowledge really helps make a stay in a foreign country less stressful, and Chris' help was very valuable.

We absolutely loved Costa Rica. It was our first trip there, but I am very sure we will be back.

Truly an amazing stay! Tulemar is the best!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two children stayed at Tulemar for one week in late November. It was our first time in Costa Rica. We had an amazing week! The resort itself is wonderful! Lots of wildlife all around and the small private beach was incredible. The water was so warm, the water is shallow and perfect for little ones yet the surf was awesome! My five year old and two year old were on boogie boards and had a blast! The resort offers great beach service, towels, chairs, sand toys, boogies boards and food and drinks!

The service all around was unbelievable. We booked our trip through Dave. We stayed in Villa Cielito and Chris was the best. He suggested the best restaurants, and was always helping us out and making great suggestions on what to do in the area. The Villa was great, spacious, clean and we had a capuchin monkey visit and try to get into our hot tub as we sat there on the deck! My kids were in love with everything! The sloths, the monkeys, all the wildlife is amazing at Tulemar. The resort is also in the best location! So close to everything (Manuel Antonio park, private beach, amazing restaurants, grocery store, car rental place). We will be back for sure!! Thank you Chris!:)

You won't regret it!

  • 5 of 5

One of my travel companions suggested staying at the Tulemar based on TripAdvisor reviews and I’m so glad we did. The well designed octagon shaped villas blend seamlessly into the landscape. The views are jaw dropping. The beaches, both at the hotel and others nearby, are stunning. The water is calmer at the private hotel beach because of the cove but there were still plenty of waves. Actually we found some of the beach’s surf outside of the private hotel beach a bit too rough for causal swimming. (But the surfers loved it) The staff, from Chris and Ashley at the concierge desk, to anyone we encountered were friendly and helpful. Be advised that the area is booming so ask about nearby construction when booking to reduce the possibility of noise. Enjoy!
