Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at villa kiskadee the third week of January. The villa was incredible. Amazing ocean views, sunset was gorgeous each night.

We were able to see slots and two of the three types of monkeys.

Chris was our concierge and he arranged all of our excursions. When we got there the kids wanted ice cream, he even took us to a store to get ice cream! He also bought us sweet treats each evening.

He also hired Marlin. Marlin spent the week with us and made us breakfast and dinner. He was amazing. The food was excellent but the presentation was equal to a five star restaurant. I wish he could come back to the states with us!

All in all a great vacation.

Villa Kiskadee!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Kiskadee for seven nights and could not have been happier. Wildlife views from the patio including monkeys, sloths, toucans and more made the visit worthwhile in itself for our four children (ranging in age from 10 - 16). Views of the ocean from all areas of the house were magnificent. Day trips to whitewater raft and zipline were planned by the Tulemar staff and went off without a hitch. The private beach was a major plus as we spent a couple of relaxing days there.

One of the best things about the trip was the pleasant, helpful Tulemar staff. Mauricio was extremely helpful in making sure we had everything we needed. Everyone we encountered greeted us with a smile and a helping hand.

Pura vida!

An amazing destination

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views from this entire hillside. Excellent service. Andres was most helpful in arranging transportation. Ruiz, the bellman, was enthusiastic, humorous, and energetic. Enjoyed seeing monkeys, lizards, and sloths on the property. The beach was delightful. Villa Kiskadee is spacious and immaculate. Perfect for large family gatherings.

Most friendly hotel I have ever been to in my life.

  • 5 of 5

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

Villa Kiskadee... Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our breath was taken away from the moment we walked through the door. After a somewhat tough travel experience, it was so nice to walk into an incredible view and a cold scented washcloth and cocktail. The house, the entire Tulemar property, the beach, and most of all, the staff is amazing. Thanks to our personal concierge, Mauricio! Every day we saw monkeys, a 3 toed sloth (we named him Clyde), birds, bats, iguanas and other wildlife. The pool was such a refreshing way to start and end each day. Good relaxing beach and waves each day to play in. Really words can't do this house and country justice, it is simply amazing!!!! I would go back tomorrow no hesitation!!!!!

Great service at an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Tulemar was nothing short of fantastic. We were lucky enough to stay at Casa Kiskadee for our honeymoon and my wife's birthday. It was a magical trip. We cannot stop talking about how much fun we had at Tulemar. Everyone on the staff was outstanding from top to bottom. The beach is immaculate and quiet and David, the beach concierge, was a hoot. He was nothing but helpful and always excited to have a conversation with you. Pura Vida, David. We'll miss you. There are kayaks and boogie boards at your disposal. I took one of the kayaks out for a bit and the cove is an amazing place to paddle around. Drinks and food are served down at the beach at your lounger or at a table. There is a shuttle that can take you from your villa or bungalow down to the beach or up to the entrance. The drivers (especially Willy!) are the nicest and always greet you with smiling faces. Central location; walking distance from many excellent restaurants (i.e. Kapi Kapi, Victoria's, Agua Azul, Cafe Milagro, Emilio's Cafe . . .). Our concierge during our stay was Mauricio. We always had excellent tables and he helped recommend two amazing tours for ziplining and whitewater rafting. He bent over backwards to make our trip memorable. Thank you so much Mauricio! All in all, Quepos and Manuel Antonio are must-see parts of Costa Rica and I highly recommend Tulemar Bungalows and Villas if you are going to be in this area.

Villa Kiskadee - What a place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at Villa Kiskadee for a week and it was fabulous! The home is gorgeous with amazing views and the beach is fantastic! Our concierge, Mauricio, took care of everything. He couldn't have been nicer or easier to work with! The beach cafe was a fun place for a breakfast or lunch; heaven! Restaurants are close, excellent and we so enjoyed eating in an open air environment! We loved zip-lining, jet skiing and touring Manuel Antonio National Park as well as our days on the private beach. People here are amazingly friendly and kind. This place is tough to top and we will definitely be back!
