What an incredible place
We recently stayed at Villa Cielito at Tulemar and had an unforgettable vacation! We were a group of five and the house provided plenty of space for all of us, and we could have actually fit a few more! The house and surrounding gardens and property were absolutely beautiful and the view was spectacular. We couldn't stop taking pictures! We had daily animal sightings from our patio (sloths, toucans and monkeys) and on several occasions we actually had groups of monkeys come right up on our patio to visit. It was unbelievable! Mauricio and the entire staff were fantastic and helped us with anything and everything we could possibly need, which made our trip even more relaxing. Tulemar is very centrally located and it was never an issue for Mauricio to arrange a taxi ride to one of the many great nearby restaurants or into the downtown area. We also did several excursions including the national park tour (highly recommend doing this with a guide), horseback riding in the jungle and then we spent plenty of days relaxing at our pool or at the private Tulemar beach. It was an absolutely amazing vacation and we can't wait to come back!

Great Vacation in TulemarGuest comment entered by manager
Great Vacation in Tulemar
My husband and two teens stayed at Villa Cielito and had a great time! The villa was incredible - we loved the view, the balconies, the outdoor showers and all the space. We spent a lot of time at the Tulemar beach and the waves were perfect to play in - not too big to be dangerous but big enough to have fun in. We couldn't believe how empty the beach was - sometimes we had it almost to ourselves. We had white faced monkeys visit us on our deck a couple mornings and that was so fun - they seemed to "play" with us, jumping around on the deck and trying to get in. That was a fun surprise! Chris was our concierge and he was great. We didn't require much care but when we did, he was super helpful and friendly. We definitely recommend Tulemar. It's a little on the expensive side but I would recommend spending a little more to get a balcony, we used ours a lot. Having the private beach available and outstanding views was worth it. We saved money by eating in the villa for most meals - great kitchen. This is a really special place - we almost cried when we had to leave. We miss it already. We will be back. Thanks Cindy for suggesting this villa.

Jungle Paradise & 5 Star Ambiance
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and Tulemar was highly recommended by a friend. He's an even closer friend now as this place was all and more than we could have imagined. With wildlife everywhere we hardly needed to venture from our exquisite tree-top perch in Villa Cielito but venture we did. Tulemar and the environs surrounding it made the 8 nights we stayed there seem hardly enough time and we are already planning our return. Dave and his staff are the best. They made us feel like family. Chris, our concierge; Jose, our chef for two nights with his brother David; Danny and David #2 at the beach - you are truly marvelous people. I know I've left someone out. My wife and I along with the couple we traveled with laughed (and are still giggling) over the remarkable blessings bestowed on us during our stay. It seemed as though all we had to do was consider what we wanted in a perfect vacation and it would magically appear. You want a sloth? Well here's one at the adult pool. Monkeys? Right away folks - on your balcony no less. Whales? - Breeching off the stern of our fishing boat. Fresh snapper to catch for dinner? Will a 20 pounder do? Jose and David will take care of the preparation in your villa. I could go on but I'll leave the rest up to your imagination. Go to Tulemar. Be pampered and, if you desire, seek an adventure or two. It's waiting for you. Thank you Cindy who suggested we stay in Villa Cielito.

Luxury in the Canopy
Villa Cielito is spectacularly situated, and beautifully decorated, with every amenity our family of 7 possibly could have wanted. We enjoyed the beautiful beach, nature trails and pools. Before we had even gotten to our villa, Chris had already pointed out 2 sloths and a boa constrictor leisurely crossing the road. The daily monkey show on the Villa's deck was a highlight of our trip; we also saw several iguanas, lizards and birds on the premises. Diego's surf school is a fantastic choice, and all of the other tours (zip lining and white water rafting) that Chris arranged for our family were first class. Every last staff person at Tulemar was exceedingly professional and warm. I would give this resort 6 stars if it were an option!

Amazing Resort with stunning views
Tulemar - A beautiful property, immaculately maintained and staffed with wonderful people. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we are so happy we found Tulemar. From the moment we made our reservations through Cindy, she and our concierge Chris, ensured we had everything we could possibly need for our stay. The villa (Villa Cielito) was exceptional with stunning views and very comfortable throughout. The location within Tulemar was very convenient, just a short walk from all the restaurants town and the Tulemar restaurant and pools. We used the private beach inside Tulemar most days, good services (kayaks, boogie boards, towels, chairs) readily available and staffed with friendly beach attendants to help. All the staff we encountered, bartenders, drivers, wait staff, etc. were really friendly and went the extra mile to make our experience special. A special thanks to Chris, our concierge and new friend, who was truly fabulous and literally took care of everything, booking trips, chefs, services, translations, restaurant reservations, finding fresh fruit - the list goes on. The setting of Tulemar, in the forest overlooking the ocean, was more spectacular than we could have imagined. The wildlife surrounding us was mind boggling - every moment sitting on the balcony is captivating with the sights and sounds of birds and monkeys going about their business. Amazing. We found all the Costa Rican people we encountered to be very friendly and it is apparent that the population take a great deal of pride in their beautiful country. We will definitely be back! Pura Vida!

Unforgettable Family VacationGuest comment entered by manager
Unforgettable Family Vacation
Tulemar is wonderful! Our family of four stayed for 8 nights in August and had an incredible time. We booked the trip late and ended up moving rooms/houses within Tulemar twice in order to stay there. It was well worth it and our concierge, Chris, made each move hassle free. It was nice to see different accommodations within the property. Villa Cielito, with its amazing ocean view, balcony Jacuzzi was our favorite. Chris and the entire staff were friendly, helpful, and seem to really enjoy their jobs. A groundskeeper pointed out a sloth hanging out in a tree that we never would have spotted on our own. The private beach is beautiful and user friendly, with chairs, towels, boogie boards and kayaks available. David at the beach is extremely friendly and set us up each day with our beach essentials. I highly recommend Tulemar for anyone looking for a bit of luxury surrounded by the beautiful Manuel Antonio rain forest.

Only TulemarGuest comment entered by manager
My family and I just returned from Tulemar. I can't think of any resort, hotel or B&B that would be like Tulemar; no way any place could be comparable in quality and hospitality and the uniquely beautiful, spacious setting. My experience in planning our trip was exceptional. All questions were promptly answered and all tours arranged for completely before our visit. Thank you Cindy for suggesting this wonderful property. Tulemar staff are the best I have experienced on any vacation anywhere. Chris our concierge helped us considerably during our trip, and was always happy to help, offering anything from drives to the store to taking us somewhere much farther away; like one day took us to visit Kids Saving the Rain forest animal rescue. Villa Cielito has amazing views and we were visited by wild like daily. The kids really enjoyed watching all of the monkeys and different animals. The villa was always cleaned very well by maid staff and no bugs! We made use of the beautiful beach and all of the pools! All of the staff are always friendly and helpful. There was a couple there on one of the last days of our trip. They had their two young daughters with them. They were renting a house in a nearby town. But, they had stayed at Tulemar before, and regretted not staying there this time. Even though they were not staying there, the staff were really helpful to them and this couple said they'd never stay anywhere else but Tulemar again. Neither would we. Hope to return one day to this beautiful resort.

Fabulous! Will be remembered
My family and I spent ten beautiful days in Tulemar at Villa Cielito. We shared a part of Manuel Antonio national park (literally -- only our panoramic glass windows separated us from it all) with butterflies, monkeys, sloths, toucans, bats, spiders and other wonderful creatures visiting our terrace and. The people all care deeply about their environment. We learned the true meaning of "Pura Vida." Everything about our trip was perfect. Chris was our concierge and he made sure our every want or need was met including scheduling chefs for dinner preparation, arranging restaurant reservations and activities (fishing, white water rafting, zip line rides), cleaning the mud stains from my white stained linen pants, and pointing out wildlife. We saw amazing thunder and lightening storms, rainbows, and blue and rose skies. The private beach and walking trails were amazing. You truly never have to leave Tulemar. I could go on and on about this place. I will most certainly return to paradise.

Wonderful VacationGuest comment entered by manager
We just spent a week at Villa Cielito in the beautiful Tulemar resort. It is a very comfortable two bedroom house with the most amazing views from every window! The house has a great kitchen and plenty of space to relax, especially on the balcony. The monkeys visit daily and the bird watching is amazing. The house is very clean and well maintained and couldn't have been more comfortable. The location of the house was ideal for us with access to the adult pool across the street and the beach just a short walk down the mountain. We did appreciate the shuttle service to get back to the house or pool from the beach as the terrain in Tulemar is quite steep but it is on the side of a mountain so that is to be expected. We were also a short walk to the main road with its variety of great restaurants and bars and the local grocery store. We tried several of the restaurants but El Patio/Cafe Milagro was our favorite for a higher end meal and El Tipico which serves typical Costa Rican food at a great price. One of the greatest assets was having our own concierge. Chris was awesome and went out of his way to be sure we had everything we needed. He was able to offer guidance for our stay in San Jose as well as taking great care of us once we got to the house. It was great to know that she was just a phone call away if we needed anything. Thank you Cindy for suggesting this amazing villa. We will be back that is for sure.

The trip could not have been better!!!
My family does a lot of traveling and by far this is the best trip we have taken. We went as a group of eight with some old friends. The kids loved the pools and the beach and overall the service was amazing! Chris was our concierge. He handled reservations of every kind for us (excursions and restaurant). Cindy made the arrangements for us to stay at Villa Cielito. We were glad that she suggested this villa. The villa had amazing views and it was beautiful. The wild life was everywhere and made this trip more then we expected. What more could you want then a private beach, restaurants within walking distance and outstanding service. We will be back. Hopefully soon.
