We Loved Tulemar!
My wife and I spent four nights at Tulamar in Mid-September, our fist trip to CR. The resort is absolutely amazing, and we really enjoyed Manuel Antonio. My wife and I celebrate our anniversary each year with vacation to unwind and and get some alone time together. Tulemar was the perfect place for this. The town of Manuel Antonio is on top of a ridge line, Including entrance to Tulemar. The resort goes from there all the way down to the beach. It is mostly jungle throughout, with some steep driveways, concrete paths, and a couple of hiking trails to get through the resort. It is a beautiful mix of landscaping and jungle. The Villas and Bungalows are located in the top half, and amazing huge houses are located in the lower half. We saw a few other people besides employees while walking around the resort. It felt very private, exactly what we wanted. Jean Carlo was our Concierge, and he was great. He seemed to dial in on our tastes immediately, and all his suggestions for food and our tours were spot on. Upon our arrival He provided a quick tour around the property, pointed out some monkeys and sloths, and gave us some hospitality drinks at Tule Cafe. He even brought my wife a bathrobe, which made her day! September is part of the rainy season in CR, and the resort seemed under capacity because of that. With the down season, there was some construction going on on a few units near the Villa we booked. Our concierge, Jean Carlo, gave us a few options to get

Beautiful in the rainforest
Everyone at this resort is looking for ways to both provide you excellent service, and let you have your space and peace. Often times at nice resorts I feel overwhelmed by the service level and just want the employees to leave me at peace. Tulemar was literally perfect. Our room was so clean with a small ocean view that we hadn't even paid extra for. We saw monkeys in the trees, 4 sloths, and had wonderful food. The private beach was the best part. There's almost no one there and we felt safe leaving our stuff while we swam. I love this resort. It was literally magical. Tons of walking, stairs, and hills. But I think they have a shuttle.

AMAZING place! In addition to the great service, food and facilities there was so much wildlife to observe on the property. We will definitely be back.
Greg, us5 night romance trip
Very good 8,0
Highly recommend
The grounds and natural wildlife here are incredible! Bring your camera and good walking/hiking shoes because there are wonderful trails and steep roads to enjoy wildlife creatures in their habitat. Shuttles are quickly accessed if you prefer rides to and from. We loved almost everything about this place aside from the bar and food service on the beach. David however, who is the consistent staff member at the beach was wonderful to get us whatever we needed for comfort and fun on the beach and in the water. He also helped out the bar and food service staff when available. The service at the main restaurant was great though. Simon and Jose at the Tulemar restaurant were wonderful and the food never disappoints! We also can't say enough about our wonderful concierge Andre's. Andre's was immediately available to answer our every need from restaurant reservations to tours outside the facility. We had a standard room with an absolutely amazing view. From what we could see, every room and facility at Tulemar appeared to have great sunset views. We will definitely visit again!

Perfection. Wildlife everything. And a sloth sanctuary. The staff is fantastic. The guide they use for the National Park is one of the most enthusiastic and enjoyable guides ever.

Good 6,0
Amenities are so so
Beautiful property however the beach and the pool area are not very well kept. I don't think it would be too much to ask to have a flat screen tv in the living room area.
