We had a great vacation at Tulemar. The 3 bedroom bungalow/casa was amazing. The cost of dining in and around the area are expensive, so it is recommended that you plan to cook some meals in the homes depending on your budget. Brian and Ashley both helped out and did a wonderful job. Brian was our primary concierge, and did...

I stayed in a two-bedroom bungalow (Casa del Mar). The two bedrooms are located downstairs with a 1/2 bathroom upstairs. Great kitchen. Lovely setting and a perfect location for a family or two couples. Monkeys would come and set on the deck and peep in the windows.

We loved Casa Del Mar. Beautifully decorated with a fully equipped kitchen....so much attention to detail throughout the entire Villa. Fresh cut flowers and wonderful staff. You can tell that the owners want their guests to feel like they are in a place where they could stay forever. The rest of the property is amazing as well.
