When we first arrived, I wasn’t totally thrilled. The beach is not an easy walk away, the water isn’t as blue or clear as Hawaii, the room wasn’t that super. BUT, I had to shift my expectations- this isn’t Maui. What makes it better- the SERVICE is amazing. They’ll shuttle you to the beach and back all day. The food at the Tulecafe is pretty amazing. You can have your meals and drinks at the beach. The water is nice and warm. They give you free kayaks, boogie boards, sand toys. There’s plenty of seating and shade at the beach. Hanging out at the beach was probably our best day. We left the resort to go to a vrbo that was 9x bigger than our casa at Tulemar and at first our entire party was excited to have a giant space. But within a half day, we all agreed we’d much rather spend our time at Tulemar. We’re a large family, traveling with 4 adults, 2 teens & a baby, fairly well traveled and are lucky to travel well & Tulemar will be near the top of our favorite places and we’d love to come back (we don’t visit too many places more than once). So sad Tulemar didn’t have the availability to extend our stay :(

This property is absolutely amazing! They really work hard at preserving the nature around the facility and pointing out the wildlife to you. They had multiple pools and they have rooms with a full kitchen and there’s even a little store available if you want to eat in, instead at one of their two restaurants! You have the most amazing views from anywhere on the property as well as a full service private beach equipped with lounge chairs, drink and food service, free kayaks and boogie boards made it even better!!! I’ll be back for sure!

Beautiful property. Lots of wildlife. Amanda our Sloth Tour guide has a really good eye for finding sloths. They’re hard to spot! Miguel guided us through our first visit to Costa Rica, setting us up with transportation, tours, COVID tests and so much more.
