This was our first time in a foreign country and we were soooo thrilled at the high level of service, cleanliness, safety, establishment, food and recommendations given to us..concierge checked in with us and made sure alll needs were met to the highest standards..we stayed at a villa, las flores and was in awe at the beauty. Never a dull moment.

We stayed 6 days at Casa Panorama Lower in Tulemar, Manuel Antonio. We would HIGHLY recommend this villa. Not only are you nestled into the hillside with a stunning view of the water, you are perfectly located to all amenities in Tulemar itself. Across the street from the pool, walking distance to the private beach and of course all this is accompanied by a shuttle service if needed- which was very helpful.

This villa comes with a personal concierge Kimberly who was the perfect addition to our stay. She was helpful in any way possible and had a great spirit about her which made everything that much easier. She was helping us from the time we booked, until the time we left- great to work with through travel details, transportation and excursion suggestions.

We are the "lets sit on the beach and do nothing for the first day of vacation, but then we need something else to do" kind of travelers. This location married the two ideals of relaxation and action packed fun.

Most days we got up early and did an excursion (sail fishing, canyoning, national park tour/hike) and were back home in the afternoon to spend the rest of the sunlight sitting on the balcony- which was beautiful. Birds everywhere, sunsets galore and the wildlife at our fingertip. Maybe a trip to the pool, maybe a trip to the beach, possibly an afternoon hike on the beach trails (north beach trail AWESOME!)- whatever we were feeling.

You could be as active as you wanted without ever stepping foot outside of Tulemar (kayaking from the beach, boogie boarding, swimming in the pools, hiking trails and wildlife watching).

Tulemars staff were friendly, helpful, humorous. The facilities were clean and beautiful.
Once you head out the front gates of Tulemar you are surrounded by great restaurants. Very walkable. We even took the local bus into town to the market and enjoyed some local cafes (called sodas).

Again this location is ideal to "do it all" or "not do a thing"- which is why it was a perfect match for us.

Thank you again for an amazing experience- this has been one of our best trips yet. And we WILL be coming back.
Pura Vida

Room Tip: Casa Panorama lower is 1 bed/ 1 bath with a living room, full kitchen and balcony- ideal for couples

5 very good reasons to book Casa Panorama for your next vacation:
(1)The beauty of the private beach and surrounding area,(2) the wildlife (monkeys, sloths, colorful birds, etc), (3) Kimberly Barron (the concierge, but more importantly your new friend), (4) the comfort and location of Casa Panorama and (5) the shuttle service (Willie and Luis) which makes it so easy to go, go, go.

Words cannot describe how amazing Tulemar is! After exhaustive research, I found this very special resort and booked Casa Las Nubes for our family of four. The pictures do not do justice and the level of service is true 5 star. THE place to stay!!! Thank you Diego for assisting with all our vacation needs. Hope to return!

Our family (wife, I, and two teenage daughters) had an awesome visit to the Tulemar resort in Manual Antoino, Costa Rica. We visited on May 24-31, 2014. It was like staying in an gorgeous combination zoo and botanical garden. We saw much more wildlife at Tulemar than we did on the National Park Wildlife Tour. Our Concierge, Chris, made us feel at home with some drinks and fresh cut flowers when we arrived…and that was just the beginning. He was a big help making arrangements for all our dinners and excursions. He, and the fantastic staff, even showed us the sloths, Iguanas, and all three kinds of monkeys (whiteface, squirrel, and howler). We visited the National Park, did a Rappelling / Zip-Line tour, and went on Catamaran Snorkel Trip. We loved visiting all of the beautiful pools, and hiking trails on the property as well as Kayaking and Boogie boarding on the beautiful beach. Our maid, Sondra, was so sweet and had our unit clean as a pin each day. Dave in the office was always helpful in providing tips on local culture and picking great places for us to eat. We cannot wait to go back! Pura Vita!

Room Tip: We 4 loved the bungalow. Ours was #111 and we had lots of monkey sightings.
