Gorgeous views, and our concierge Jean Carlo was fantastic!

by lcrowley717

This place is amazing. We watched the monkeys play in the trees and could see the ocean from our balcony. Our concierge, Jean Carlo, helped us make dinner reservations, book tours, and even find a pharmacy to find a bandage for a scratch my daughter got (while using the free boogie boards, and we needed a bandage because she wanted to get right back out on the waves!) David at the beach was also super helpful. One of our best vacations ever.

Honeymoon at the Tulemar

by Scottbpepper

We spent 5 days at the Tulemar Resort for the last part of our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it. We stayed in the Luxury Standard Villa and it was very private with an amazing view of the water. The service was incredible. It is a large property and you need to take shuttles from reception to your room and the beach. The staff were unbelievable. So helpful and friendly. We loved Memo who was so friendly and a great person to talk to. Our chats gave a unique view into Costa Rican life. We had a personal concierge named Jans who was always in contact with us and willing to help at any time. He arranged tours, drivers, dinner reservations and room service and checked in with us. We can’t say enough nice things about him. In the mornings there were monkeys crossing our porch and sloths in the trees. It was magical as we saw parrots fly by during sunset. While we heard the beaches are crowded in Manuel Antonio, the beach at the Tulemar is beautiful and private. The service was equally incredible. You could order food and drinks and bill directly to your room. They had towels, boogie boards and kayaks available at all times. We loved our time at the Tulemar and were sad to leave. We can’t recommend them enough and we will absolutely go back when we return to Manuel Antonio.
