"The driveway is a bit steep but the pay off is the view. Beautiful view of the ocean and surrounding jungle. We heard the Howler Monkeys on our first day and that was just the start. We had white-face capuchin monkeys, squirrell monkeys and toucans all around us and we didn't even have to leave the deck! You can walk to a number of restaurants. Our favorite was Claro Que Si Seafood Restaurant. We did a guided walk in the park, well worth paying for a guide, you will see things with a guide that you would never see on your own. The beach in the park is a bit crowded but very nice. I wish we could have stayed longer."

"This house was everything I thought it would be and more! Right in the jungle but still an amazing view of the ocean. Although there were monkeys everywhere they were never a nuisance. You will be woken up early by the Howler monkeys but it is such a cool experience. There are restaurants in walking distance but the hill is pretty steep. It's too far to walk to the park but taxis are easy to find. I would go back again for sure! Our party of 7 truly enjoyed it."

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"

"If you want to go to paradise and depart with a longing to stay knowing you will have a transformative experience this is where you need to go. My wife and I are nature enthusiasts and like to be around people that have a similar "warm and fuzzy" side particularly if it is genuine and sincere. This place gets into your blood immediately upon arrival. From those born to Costa Rica to those who have become expat's the experience is uniformly gracious, caring and service oriented. Our hostess, the great and wonderful Ashley, anticipated our concerns and truly went the extra mile seemingly what she just does naturally. She even arranged a chef on our last evening for an 'in bungalow' feast that rivaled the excellent on site and area restaurants. Chris (the chef) is beyond description. He is personable, a great food educator with world experience, who felt like a natural member of the family as he did on site creations we have not seen. Chris, the eggs diablo were like nothing I have ever partaken! I didn't know you could do that with anchovies! The most disappointing part of Casa Del Mar was leaving. Colleen and I are both psychiatrists and we can find no better antidepressant than the PEOPLE and resort of Casa Del Mar!!!
Thank you and Bless You, Ashley, Chris and Dave (and David, our beach concierge, who never played Bocce Ball but is a natural!). We'll be back!!!"
