If you are considering visiting the Manuel Antonio area, I can't think of a better place. First, it is like living in a zoo. Daily walks to the beach include sloths, monkeys, macaws. Do the Sloth Walk on Day 1 to tour the property. Rooms: we stayed in a bungalow which fit our family of four well. The views are...

We had the absolute best time. Prior to staying at Tulemar I thought I knew what to expect, but it was even better than imagined. My only complaint was that we thought we had reserved a king sized bed, and instead had two beds- we didn't even mention it because we were so excited to be there. We had three...

We stayed in the Woodpecker bungalow for a week and couldn't believe how amazing the view was from our bedroom. We overlooked most of the resort and even further into the crystal clear waters around the coast. The room was rustic and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The beaches and local hiking trails were just down the hill,...

We went to Tulemar for our 5 year anniversary and could not have enjoyed it more. We stayed in the Casa Panorama Villa which was perfect for a couple. Has a kitchen, living room and a large bedroom with full windows looking out over the jungle to the water. Perfect view of the sunset every day with tons of wildlife...

We stayed in a one bedroom unit with a great ocean view. It was comfortable and quiet, with space to spread out. All the staff were very friendly, going out of the way to help with any request. The beach was very nice, with boogie boards and sea kayaks to use for free. On site restaurant had good food, if...

We just spent five days in the bamboo villas. I cannot recommend staying here more. The views of the sunset were absolutely breathtaking. For a couple, we found the bamboo villa to be perfect. We loved having our own plunge pool to wake up and dive into or jump into after working out. The other really neat part was we...

We just returned from a delightful five night stay at Tulemar. I will add my voice to all the previous reviews extolling its wonders. The site is magnificent-- a jungle hillside sloping down to its own private beach. The wildlife are everywhere-- 3 types of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, scarlet macaws, all sighted on the property close to our villa. Our...

Where to start? We loved everything about Tulemar Bungalows. We stayed there for several days during our recent trip to Costa Rica, and it was our favorite part of the trip (and we stayed at the Springs Resort & Spa in Arenal, so it has some pretty stiff competition!).
