Service, attentiveness, facilities were excellent. The views were wonderful and we would revisit. Pools beach rooms and meals were great. We had full kitchen, but used main restaurant and beach food place. Great that only one main restaurant which was always available. We have been to lots of resorts and this was among the best

My boyfriend and I came to Costa Rica to celebrate our anniversary, both our birthdays, and Valentine's Day, all which fall within a week and a half period. Our plan was to start off in the Arenal area, but that was nixed due to a blizzard in Boston cancelling our flight, so our first night was a couple of days...

Amazing views. Surrounded by wildlife. We saw more animals at the resort than we did in the national park! Toucans, Sloths, Macaws, Monkeys. The staff was so kind and welcoming. Mauricio helped us with restaurant recommendations/reservations, transportation, ATV and JetSki tours. He is a total professional! We'll never forget the week we spent in Tulemar.

We had an incredible time at Tulemar...we are already planning another trip back, and we normally don't go to the same place twice! We stayed in a bungalow, which was much more spacious than the pictures depict.

This was our 3rd trip to Costa Rica but the first time staying in Tulemar. It was wonderful. We stayed in Mirazul and the house is beautiful. Great view from all the rooms. Large bedrooms all with their own deck. Plenty of gathering space upstairs and around the pool. The pool was a great place to spend the hot afternoons....

When we checked in to Tulemar, we had just left the most amazing hotel in Arenal (Tabacon) and we didn't want to leave. Arriving in the dingy, dirty check in area foreshadowed the poor experience we were about to have. The first night we checked into our room, it was just ok. Very outdated decor and not the most comfortable....
