Pretty amazing!

We were picked up by our drive from SJO and were a bit nervous about the 3+ hour drive ahead of us but we shouldn’t have worried. Our concierge Brian had arranged for William to be our driver and although some of the roads were a bit dicey we felt very safe and we’re able to sit back and enjoy the scenery. We had two stops en route, one to see the crocodiles and a bathroom break.

There is little new we can say that hasn’t been said about this fabulous resort. before arriving I honestly thought it really couldn’t be as good as the reviews...it was, and better! We were lucky enough to be able to stay on one of the Bamboo villas....an amazing property with an outstanding view. There is a small convenience store on property which carries the basics so no need to leave the resort if you don’t want to!

We ate at Tulecafe once which was most enjoyable and Victoria’s which was awesome!

The property is maintained to the highest standard and attention to detail is obviously important. Brian ensured we had absolutely everything we could need and nothing was too much trouble. I did think a personal concierge would be a bit intrusive as we’ve not had one before but Brian was perfect and didn’t bother us one bit, in fact he made our stay as perfect as it could have been.

We saw sloths, scarlet macaws, monkeys and an array of other creatures...too many to mention. We did the sloth tour, mangrove boat trip and the evening jungle tour, all of which I would highly recommend, but best to arrange through your concierge or Tulemar as they pick the best tour companies.

I felt like a celebrity!

My experience at Tulemar was absolutely incredible. The house (casa mirador) was stunning with a beautiful view of the ocean. Our concierge Chris was our right hand man. Anything we needed, he was ready to help with a smile on his face. He, as well as the rest of the staff, was accommodating and pleasant. Our experience was perfect. Pura vida!

Great resort! Staff was awesome!

We stayed at Tulemar for about a week, and we loved it! Our bungalow had incredible views, the staff was amazing, and there was plenty of wildlife.

Laura made sure we had everything we needed and helped us arrange transportation and excursions. Service was above and beyond.

The drivers that take you to the beach and back (it's a big hike otherwise) were great as well. My kids loved Nacho! He was very fun and energetic!

The beach staff were awesome as well. They provided sand toys, boogie boards, brought us food and drinks, they were awesome! We ordered lunch from our beach lounges several times.

The howler monkeys and birds can be a bit annoying some mornings, but that's to be expected in a rainforest!
