Tulemar is a 33 acre, gated and secure, residential resort located right in the heart of Manuel Antonio. We have a collection of over 50 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). The “official hotel” operation in Tulemar refers only to the original Tulemar Bungalows, of which there are just nine. All other accommodations in Tulemar are privately owned vacation homes. Not every homeowner in Tulemar rents their home, but most do. Our company provides reservations for almost all of the homes in Tulemar and provides Concierge Service. There are other companies that provide reservations as well to some of the accommodations. No matter which villa you rent or which company you book with, you’ll enjoy all the amenities of Tulemar!
Our Tulemar Gardens Resort is actually managed by the Homeowner’s Association made up of the individual homeowners. Since every property is privately owned, we have several property management companies that manage the bungalows, casas and villas within. The food and beverage services at the restaurant and beach are leased to an on site operator.
We are continually ranked among the top three properties in Manuel Antonio based upon our service, our staff and our accommodations. We are great for families, but we are also perfect (and popular) for couples!
