We had the fortune to be able to stay at Casa Panorama Lower for 7 days. Wow! It was our last stop on our honeymoon and we wanted it to be relaxing, beach focussed, easy, and surrounded by beauty and wildlife and that is exactly what we got. Kimberly who looked after the villa was exceptional, nothing was too much...

I didn't write a review after our first visit because it was so fantastic that I thought I might be overreacting. Now that we have completed our second visit I know I wasn't overreacting, it truly is a fantastic place to take a vacation.

You'd think that by the fourth visit we wouldn't still be in awe but Tulemar and Casa de Frutas are stunning. The grounds at Tulemar are perfectly kept and the beach is so much fun.
