"Believe all the great comments that you read about Tulemar! My family and I booked a week at a bungalow in the Tulemar resort through our new best friend Chris, our personal concierge for our stay. From the day we booked our bungalow until we left for the airport on our last day, Chris and the team at Tulemar made us feel like royalty. Chris made the planning process for the trip a pleasure by helping us figure out the best activities to participate in (we highly recommend the zip lining and sunset cruise) as well as the best way to get to and from the resort (he arranged for a driver to pick us up and also for local transportation while we were there). When we arrived at the resort we were amazed at the natural beauty, especially the wildlife and AMAZING sunsets over the Pacific Ocean every night. The private beach was truly breathtaking and even though the resort was booked, it was far from crowded. We took advantage of the complimentary boogie boards and kayaks and also highly recommend dining at the beach side restaurant. The facilities are truly amazing including the three pools available for families. Our 8 year old kept us busy from sun up till sun down and sitting pool side with a few drinks watching the sunset while she swam was a great way to end the day. Everyone at Tulemar and in Manuel Antonio / Quepos area were very welcoming and made us feel at home. Very safe, very clean, great food, amazing sightseeing, friendly people made this a real once in a lifetime experience. I travel internationally frequently and Chris and the Tulemar team have made Costa Rica and Tulemar our new #1 destination. We are already planning our return trip with friends and family!!! Thanks Chris for making our vacation truly amazing!!! PURA VIDA!"

Seclusion, privacy, comfort, and an adventure of a lifetime
"Waking up in the middle of the rainforest in your own private villa is one of those experiences I'll never forget. The sounds of exotic birds calling and the cool morning mountain breezes brought a stillness and sense of calm to my soul. The sheer beauty of this estate is breathtaking. There are picturesque views from the road leading to the estate, from your balconies and all over the grounds which you have all to yourself. To be able explore the famous Manuel Antonio ran forest at your leisure, enjoy the many jaw dropping waterfalls with swimming pools and roaring Naranjo river is an experience of a lifetime.
The villa is beautiful and comfortable. We never needed for anything. Definitely set up dinner with Chef Edgar, you will not be disappointed! I've worked in high end restaurants for over a decade and Edgar blew our minds!
Our stay was geared towards a romantic getaway, which Deborah flawlessly executed by setting the tone with fresh exotic flowers, luxurious linens and bedspreads. Honeymooning here would be amazing! That being said, it would also be a great place for a family as it is a nice sized villa with acres upon acres to explore and get some space. There is a perfect mix of untouched forest and landscaped grounds that are easy to navigate.
I would definitely stay here again!"

"We loved this place. It is secluded with a fantastic view of the ocean and sunsets from the pool, yet a short ride to Quepos and the beaches. The local market has everything you need and takes credit cards. There is jungle hiking nearby, river swimming up the road with waterfalls and Manuel Antonio Park is about a 30 minute drive. The road from Quepos to the house was a little slow due to construction, they were paving all the roads. Jose, your host, is a great guy and is available any time you need anything or if you need a driver. Jose will help you schedule fishing trips, tours, etc. give you directions, or just take you there. The house has two open military Jeeps or a nice SUV with A/C at your disposal if you want to drive yourself or go 4-wheeling.
There is good surfing nearby, ( I'm a beginner ) and Jose does an excellent job of setting up an all day beach party, on the sand, with a BBQ, drinks, snacks and he even brings a shower! Highly recommend that! Just give him a budget and he will get everything, cook it and all you do is show up to swim, surf and party all day long!
The house is huge and air conditioned. It was just the two of us this time but we have 3 more couples ready to go as soon as we can set a date."

"From the moment we arrived in Quepos..4 hours later than expected the exceptional service and help we received would never be expected from a resort. Raul is the most amazing concierge...the amazing amazing fishing trips we experienced will never be forgotten....his help and his suggestions were so welcome!!
Rolando(the onesite caretaker) and his family are there for you every day...we were not expecting a full clean of the house not once but twice while we were there. Watch out for the little one Nancy...she may just melt your heart and she likes snacks and 7UP!!! The house is amazing and so are the views!! We spent a lot of time there in the backyard enjoying the sun, heat and the parrots each day!!! Tom and Sandy have truly made a romantic or family home...whichever you prefer you will get with this home!
We have just sent out our confirmation for next year!! Costa Rica and their people are above none!! From the minute we arrived until the minute we left we were never disappointed.
A small note...do NOT rent a car from the airport...have Raul arrange your transportation from the airport to Quepos and then he will take exceptional care of your rental needs the next day!!
Ask Raul for Tony, Jimmy and Luis for a fabulous day of fishing!! We had 3 of the most amazing days with them!!"
