Tulemar Bungalows & Villas, Costa Rica
What Is Tulemar?
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 eight. All other accommodations in Tulemar are privately owned vacation homes. Not every homeowner in Tulemar rents their home, but most do. Our front desk and reception area is located in the main building in Tulemar. We provide reservations for ALL of the accommodations in Tulemar, many of them, exclusively. Our Reservations Team is also located right here in Manuel Antonio, so they know the best options for you. There are other companies that provide similar services in Tulemar. No matter which villa you rent or which company you book with, you’ll enjoy all the amenities of Tulemar!
The Tulemar Gardens Resort is managed by the Homeowner’s Association made up of the individual homeowners. Since every property in Tulemar is privately owned, we have several property management companies that manage the bungalows, casas and villas within. The food and beverage services in Tulemar are leased to an onsite operator.
We are continually ranked as the top hotel property in Manuel Antonio based upon our service, our accommodations, the Tulemar Beach and all the wildlife. We are great for families, but we are also perfect (and popular) for couples!
