Our stay was simply amazing. Very rare in Manuel Antonio to find a place that has its own private beach, which was beautiful. They provide you everything you need to enjoy your time on the beach too (chairs, umbrellas, a beach bar, boogie boards, and kayaks). Our concierges (Miguel and Orlando) were terrific and made the stay worthwhile.

The Tulemar property was beautiful. We saw more sloths and monkeys right at the resort than we did on our guided tour of the national park. The grounds were natural and postcard perfect.
