Recent Manuel Antonio reviews
Wonderful bungalow - fabulous property
"We were a family of 5, and the bungalow accommodated us perfectly! The views were beautiful and Julie from Green Coast Rentals was very easy to work with. Our favorite part of Tulemar was the private beach - absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful sunsets, boogie boards, kayaks, friendly helpful staff. I would absolutely recommend Tulemar to anyone - families, couples and singles."

"Our family, including 2 teen girls and my mother, enjoyed our week at this beautiful secluded air-conditioned rental home up in the hills of Costa Rica. A 4x4 is a MUST to get up the dirt/rocky hills, but we all thought that was part of the adventure. If you like to be right in the middle of all the action, then this is probably not for you, but my family loved it. We all enjoyed adventures each day in nearby Quepos/Manuel Antonio and then returned for a swim in the pool to watch the sunset before heading out again for dinner or making dinner at the house. It is at least a 15 minute trip to get to Quepos and about 5 minutes of it is on a dirt road through African Palm Trees. The home is located in a gated area, but you literally can't see another home from it. It has beautiful views and off to the far south, you can see the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The people that manage the home live nearby and were very helpful in getting us to the home and helping us locate good restaurants. As with all homes, there were a few very minor things that the owner needs to fix, but none of it was really a big deal. (The dishwasher ran loudly, there were some scratchy animal noises in the vents, and the wood around the pool needs to be replaced.) The home is very clean and there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Also, the owner, was very helpful and easy to work with via phone/email prior to our visit. We would definitely stay again. We heard about a good adventure even further up the mountain that we didn't get to try, but hear is good."

Most friendly hotel I have ever been to in my life.
"This is definitely a place for family. It's amazing to see how the hotel and nature lives together. Aside the awesome view, what makes me happy most was the staff. It truly feels like everyone in the resort have their customers at heart. We had our own concierge, Andres - super helpful and friendly. The shuttle driver, Willy was sooooo amazing, he talked to us and showed us wildlife even just for a 1 minute drive. Kiskadee was gorgeous and so well kept. Everything was so comfortable. From the service to the casa, to the wildlife, to the private beach, it was just a great experience.
The only drawback that I have is I didn't book longer to stay in Tulemar"

"This condo worked beautifully for our 4 night stay. We were two adult couples traveling so having the two separate bedroom/bathroom combinations worked excellently. Loved the view, spotted howler monkeys in the trees one evening. We were in the rainy season and witnessed an awesome 8 hour lightning and thunderstorm, great views at night from the balcony.
Best to have a car to get around. With 4WD you can drive down to one of the close beaches. Really liked that this property was off the main road so felt more secluded.
Recommend Emilios restaurant just down the road.
Now, here is my caution if you are staying at this location over a weekend. The hotel hosted a 'dance party' on Saturday from 3:00 - 11:00 pm. They set up a DJ near the pool who played blaring music with an electronica beat for yes, 8 hours. The speakers faced all the residence towers and not the hotel. It was too loud inside and with the doors/windows closed. We and others staying in the condo complained but the management was not responsive. Even though there was NO one at the party for the first five hours! It seemed to get started only after 8:00 pm. It looked like this was geared to locals as we did not receive an invitation (they had slipped a flyer under the door for a live music and food discount on Friday night, which had no impact on us). In fact, our rafting guides the next day mentioned they knew about the party from Facebook. It even impeded our ability to drive in/out as they had roped off the entrance and we had to continually prove we belonged on the premises.
This is no reflection on the owners or management company as their hands were tied, nothing Linda, Michael, or Alex could do about the situation. Just an unfortunate experience that detracted wildly from our relaxing vacation. We'd expected Saturday to be our relax at home/pool day. Other than that, I would give it five stars."
