The villa did have a leak that did get fixed the A/C was freezing and would drip ice while we slept. But everything got fixed Gary, Chris, Manny and everyone else was great help and was very polite and sweet!

What a 2nd trip to costa rica for us. We booked our stay at casa405 with greencoastrentals. Awesome awesome views! Frank the concierge was amazing and always at our service with a phone call away (phone access in the bungalow). The beach access and the small nature walk was awesome at the Tulemar Bungalows, the jacuzzi in the balcony was a real luxury! Service is general should be a 6 star!! Manuel Antonio as a whole was really nice, hiking, monkeys, zip lining, views!! I'd say the only con in this area is the night life is pretty dead unless you want to drive an hour or so away to Jaco. Aside from that, great place to relax, unwind and take in the beauty Costa Rica has to offer.

Room Tip: Get to Manuel Antonio park early to avoid the lines.

That is what best describes the unit where I stayed at this reknown Resort from Manuel Antonio. Spacious, comfortable and well decorated, immersed in Nature and with spectacular ocean views. I was even so lucky to have a family of white faced monkeys visiting me at my balcony while they were moving through the forest. The great service and friendly attitude of its whole staff sums up to a memorable experience during my short stay here. Definitively one of my favorites.

My wife found Tulemar on the net...we decided to spend a week here after seeing pictures of the villas and reading the rave reviews...some reviews complained about the furniture and decor bring dated....I think that only applies to the smaller bungalows...my wife and 3 kids absolutely loved the 2 BR villa we stayed in...overlooking the family pool...with amazing views of the jungle and beach...both BR and main living room opened out into a deck....we enjoyed eating breakfast here every morning...

Our concierge Andres Estrada, Maria Zuniga (front desk), and Maria Reyes were fluent in English and did everything to make our stay extremely enjoyable....they booked all our tours (White Water Rafting, Ziplining, Jet Skiing, and Manuel Antonio Nature tour) before we even checked in...David at the beach took care of our beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, and kayaks....the entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful...

Prices for a 2 or 3 BR are pretty steep...but the villa is so big...you could comfortably share it with another family to keep cost down....but you really get what you pay for...we have every intention of coming back next yr....

Pura Vida Tulemar

Hi Jimmy D.....thank you for the 5 Star review......so happy to hear that your family enjoyed their stay in Tulemar.....you are right.....the smaller units like the original Tulemar Bungalows are 25 years old now.....tropical, rustic and kind of quirky design.....octagon with glass all around.....like the Jetson's house if they lived in Tulemar......they look exactly like they do in the photos.....clean and well maintained.....and fun for smaller families......thanks for the kind words on our staff.....we really do work hard to make sure our guests enjoy their stay.....I'm thrilled to hear that you'll be returning......just let us know and we'll have your 2 bedroom casa ready!

The villas are very spacious with great views of ocean. Private beach is nice with small waves for body surfing. Very hilly. Only one restaurant on property - Some nice restaurants right outside of property. Swimming pools are small - if you want a quiet spot to relax - good place to go, if looking for a large resort atmosphere - this is not the place. I would recommend for a quiet relaxing few days

Hi Scott S.....thank you for the 5 Star review and the nice comments.....glad that you enjoyed your stay in Tulemar.....you are right about Tulemar not having the large resort atmosphere......that's not what we are about.....Tulemar is a 33 acre, gated and secure, residential resort located right in the heart of Manuel Antonio. We have a collection of over 45 different, unique and individual 3★, 4★, and 5★ accommodations, ranging from our rustic Bungalows to our luxurious Private Villas.
Our properties are surrounded by jungle and the wildlife is abundant; you'll see monkeys, sloths and exotic birds throughout the property and on our hiking trails. At the Tulemar Beach you'll find warm, tropical waters with a sandy beach and lots of shady palm trees plus free lounge chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, boogie boards, towels and food/beverage service.
We are not a traditional 5★ resort, an all-inclusive or a franchised hotel (with loud music playing around the pool areas and lobby). If you're looking for a relaxing spot with amazing ocean views, a beach and lots of wildlife, this is it. Hope to see you back again!
