An idyllic tropical paradise.

Perfect location on the Pacific Coast. Incredible staff. An unbelievable holiday. Highly recommend the resort, particularly Casa Mirador for stunning views. Go canyoning, white water rafting and surfing.

Panoramic Views of Paradise

We had an exceptional time at Tulemar.

We had originally booked at the Hotel Gaia, but were so frustrated with their oversold and underdelivered property, that we elected to go elsewhere. We made a last minute reservation and were lucky to be in touch with the manager, Alex, who had previously worked at Hotel Gaia.

We were skeptical at this point, due to such a poor experience in the Gaia Hotel, but the Manager at Tulemar, Alex, was kind enough to offer to tour us around the property before we made any decision.

What we saw was fantastic.

The Tulemar resort is built delicately into a lush swath of hillside jungle, that sweeps dramatically down to a private beach. This dramatic dropoff affords panoramic views from (what I can assume is) every bubgalow. Additionally, there are a couple of hiking trails to explore the landscape, on site.

Though the only unit available was one of their 'rustic' villas, we were not disappointed. The bedroom and sitting room both afforded exceptional views of the coastline and the sweeping jungle all around.

We were lucky again, since we were visiting during the 'green' season, because it was dry enough to spend most of our time at the private beach. My partner was ecstatic about the beach. David, the Pura Vida beach manager made sure that she was set up exactly where she wanted with lounge chairs, towells, a table, and an umbrella.

I was ecstatic about the free-of-charge use of their ocean kayaks, and took avail of this. On David's advice, I paddled out to a reef, anchored the kayak, and donned my snorkelling gear (I did bring this with me). Apart from my sunburn, it was a perfect day.

Though we spent most of our time at the beach, we were graced by a pretty epic thunderstorm. Watching this from our villa was absolutely breathtaking.

If you're looking for a beach or jungle vacation with views, look no further.

Peace & beauty

My son and I loved our villa. Smart design, with windows & floor to ceiling glass panels around most of the space, I never felt like I was missing anything and was drawn to many moments of wildlife happening outside. Views were breathtaking. I loved sitting in a zen like trance on the balcony, taking in all of the serenity. ????

Jean Carlo was assigned as our concierge and he did an amazing job to make sure we had everything we needed & wanted. We were thrilled to have groceries delivered to the villa, and Jean Carlo accommodated every request during our stay.

Overall we were very happy with the peace and beauty of our surroundings, the nearby beach for guests use (free from vendors), and our pampered experience from Jean Carlo. ????????
