My husband, two sons (ages 11 and 13) and myself had the absolute pleasure of staying at Buena Vista Luxury Villas for our vacation last week. It was the trip of a lifetime! We stayed in one of the adorable bungalows (#115) with a fabulous view of the Pacific Ocean. The sunsets were breathtaking! We were also lucky enough to...

Our group of five just spent four nights here. The place is beautiful, located on the side of a hill overlooking the ocean nestled in a tropical forest with monkeys, birds and other wildlife. The villas are great with very big, nicely equipped kitchens and balconies with jacuzzis. The rooms are large with very nice bathrooms. The whole place was...

The weather was wonderful, and the accommodations were terrific, but what truly made our experience unique was the people. From Gary and Maria at the reception area, to the fabulous restaurant workers, including Jorge and Elliott (el Toro). But there were so many, it's hard to name just a few. The views all around were astonishing, from our favorite seats...

We loved our stay in the villas! The staff are very attentive and interesting. So very friendly and social. They really made our stay memorable and fun. The food is good on site. Seafood platter for two is muy bueno! The villas are like tree houses, surrounded by trees and jungle. The wildlife is abundant. We were visited by 3...

We had a five night stay at the Buena Vista Villas with three boys ranging from 10-16. The hotel is beautiful and the service outstanding. Andres is the concierge that was assigned to us and he provided wonderful recommendations on tours, dinners and other activities. There is so much to do and see, both on and off property. While on...

My wife and I had a long awaited awesome vacation here at the Tulemar resort and it was unforgettable. Our concierge, Orlando Cortes, took care of us from the beginning to end on our first trip to Costa Rica! He helped us see several exotic/ tropical animals. Then he gave us the best recommendation to go whitewater river rafting and...

We stayed at the tulemar bungalow for 4 nights. The views are spectacular and the private beach is great for families. We saw monkeys just outside our room. Our concierge Orland is very nice and friendly. He showed us the sloths in the resort. He even brought his own tv for us to use when the tv in our room...

Probably the best vacation of my life. Beautiful location, beautiful accommodations. The staff is top notch. Wildlife is all around. Be sure to ask for a private chef to prepare a first class meal right in you room. I can't say enough good things about this place and I hope to go back soon. If you are going to Costa...

We found Buena Vista Villas online when we were looking for a 3-bedroom house near Manuel Antonio. But little did we know that it was situated inside Tulemar Resort, which ended up being quite a find! We traveled to Costa Rica for a week at Christmas with my family of 4 and my parents for their 50th wedding anniversary. Orlando...
