We stayed for 3 nights in one of their bungalows. We had an amazing ocean view. We saw more animals at this resort than we did in the park! Monkeys, sloths, Scarlett macaws, iguanas, crabs, spiders to name a few. The beach was great, and the service was unbelievable. We are definitely going to come back!

An actual vacation!
Reviewed 3 days ago

I am known for saying that traveling with kids is not a vacation; it’s just relocating operations somewhere where you are less familiar with the resources available to keep them entertained. Tulemar was a VACATION! There were six of us all together-me, my husband, our three children (13, 10, 8), and my mom. We spent seven nights at Tulemar and had the best time! From the moment we arrived, the staff was attentive and friendly. Our concierge, Alex, gave us his cell number so we could text him with questions, if we needed groceries, etc. He even changed a dinner reservation for us on his day off! He came not once, but twice, to straighten out issues we were having with the safes (user error, mostly). We booked all of our activities through the resort, and that made everything so easy and streamlined. Alex went through our itinerary with us the first day and gave us the vouchers we would need for each activity. He recommended restaurants, made sure we knew how the shuttle worked, and answered all of our questions. Our villa itself at the resort was fabulous. Comfortable and spacious, we never felt claustrophobic or like we were right on top of each other. From our balcony, we watched the monkeys and birds and appreciated the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. There is a lot of wildlife to see right there at the resort, from monkeys, to agoutis, to exotic birds, to sloths. The outdoor shower was an experience in itself; it was hard to come home to a regular shower. Our villa had a washer and dryer, which was a really nice convenience to have. We hardly had to bring any dirty clothes home. Bring laundry detergent, as the detergent provided is considered a minibar item. Our villa was even equipped with umbrellas! They have truly thought of everything! No need to bring beach towels for the beach or any other day trips; the resort will provide them. Staying at Tulemar was the experience of a lifetime!

Best Family Trip Ever
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We went to Tulemar as our friends had spent time there and highly recommended it. This was our family trip after both our daughter and son had graduated from school, to reconnect before they move on to their next life experience. We could not have picked a better country to visit or resort to be at.

We stayed in 401, which was close to the reception, it had an amazing view of the ocean, was in the tree tops right outside our balcony, where we would have dinners, lounge for morning coffee, and spend time in the hot tub. The wild life in the trees just feet from us was amazing (howler monkeys, white face monkeys, sloths, and beautiful tucans, scarlet macaws, and many others that we don't know the names of). We had private bed rooms, and outdoor showers with the same awesome views.

The supermarket was basic but had all we needed to make some great meals and was a quick 5 min walk. The staff would also get what we needed and put into our room as well. The resort has four pools, and private beach and we spent time at all of them. As it was the start of rainy season (which we only had one rainy day) occupancy was low so we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves many times.

The Manuel Antonio National Park was a 10min taxi ride, and we went twice during our stay. It also has a beautiful beach to swim at as well as great trails to hike and plenty of wild life. I would highly recommend having a guide to walk you through as they will see things that we never would have.

Other excursions that we enjoyed were fishing (with Captain Ricardo), Water falls tour (with Paddle 9 -our only rain day which was great for swimming in the waterfalls), Surfing at the public beach (with Macho), Guided tour in the park (Andreas from Iguana Tours).

The staff at Tulemar are amazing and it seemed like any request would be accommodated. We had concierge to look after every need day or night by text. Thank you to Laura, and Orlando who looked after us for our stay. Also shout out to David at the beach, Juan (wine guy), our waiter at the Tula Cafe (sorry we could not remember your name), Nico at the Hotel Bueno Vista (at the public beach but affiliated with Tulemar). Maid service was excellent as well.

We are a family with tree children, 8,6,and 2 years wold.

To start this review I would like to say a big big thank you PURA VIDA to all the staff at the Tulemar resort, a special one to ALEX, who was so kind, and very professional with us, he made sure we had an amazing time there, he even took my husband on his time off to get a hair cut.

The hotel is breathtaking, the view is out of this world, the nature itself is enough. The villas are very private, spacious, clean and safe.

The kitchen has everything you will need to cook if you feel like it, but trust me as soon as you eat at the pool restaurant you won’t want to cook :) , the food is absolutely deliciously fresh!

You will not regret to go fishing, take your kids, they will love it! you ask Alex and he will sort it out :)

Tulemar you’re amazing!! Gracias amigos PURA VIDA ! And see you very soon .

Our family of four , with two young adults, Visited at the end of April this year. We spent four amazing nights at Tulemar, waking up to monkeys in the trees outside our Terrace, swimming in the beautiful pools, watching amazing sunsets and going on a wonderful catamaran excursion, kayaking and touring the rainforest .
The staff at Tulemar was so amazing and we wanted to mention those who worked with us the most. Niko was an amazing concierge. He anticipated everything we needed, and was available 24/7 to answer questions or concerns. The resort is built into a hill sort of in the middle of the rainforest so there are many hills to climb from your room. There is a shuttle however that arrives five minutes after you phone the reception and picks you up close to your room . The staff at the restaurant which sold amazing food, and had a view of gorgeous sunsets every night, with visits from sloths, monkeys, and had wonderful staff including Simon, Elliot, Harold. More thanks to Memo, Laura , and Andreas. We hope to go back someday. And send our warmest thanks to those of you who took such good care of us. And we apologize if we left anyone out!! The most relaxing beautiful vacation we could imagine.
