Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in the Villa Mot Mot! I can't NOT wait to get back. We saw more animals from our balcony in three days, then we saw the entire trip. I loved the people, the concierge, the private beach, the happy hour and all of the exciting things we go to do at the beach club! The welcomed us with fruit and showed us how to use everything! They gave us restaurant suggestions, my favorite was Cafe Milagro and Barba Roja (fish tacos were to die for). I can't say enough great things about this place. The room was stunning and we had cute little bats visit us at night. Wow, you won't regret staying here.

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place! Saw numerous monkeys on our porch. Had a sloth hang out in tree 10 feet from porch. Wildlife everywhere. Exactly what we were hoping for. The beach is private and extremely nice. Service was great. View was was top notch. Actually, the view was better than top notch. Town and supplies are right outside front gate. Loved every minute of it! Traveled with wife and 2 kids/ 3 and 15.

The best villa in the resort

  • 5 of 5

When we checked in the concierge at the front desk said "Oh! You have the best villa at the resort". We thought, he probably says that to everybody. That was before we opened the front door and stepped inside. It was fully air conditioned and that day it was extremely hot and humid. It was so welcoming. There was even an ice maker! Oh happy day! The owner had thought of everything. The interior inside was so tastefully decorated and colorful. No sooner were we there and 15 minutes later a large family of spider monkeys came to check us out on the balcony. Everyday there were monkeys, always the curious Capuchins, and one morning we were serenaded by the howler monkeys on a tree next to the villa. If you hear noises at night it's the monkeys on the roof. There was an abundance of wildlife at this resort and our concierge Jonathan was extremely friendly and helpful. Always a phone call away if we needed anything. Our 13 year old enjoyed the pools, but mostly the boogey board down at the private beach. We took a zipline tour through Canopy Safari one day in the pouring rain, but it was warm. The next day we headed to Manuel Antonio National Park and took a guided tour. We saw lots of sloths and interesting insects/snakes, but it's a very touristy place on the beach so we decided to go back to Tulemar and use our own private beach. We ate at several restaurants and loved Aqua Azul and if you visit please say hi to Caesar who owns the Wagon Wheel (they make wood fired pizzas there). Everyone in the area is super friendly and we definitely would recommend Villa Mot Mot and Tulemar Resort as a prime destination in Costa Rica.

Villa Mot Mot = Monkeys

  • 5 of 5

Tulemar Villas is very near to the other upscale hotels in Manuel Antonio and a short, 5-minute drive to the National Park. Of all the small, octagonal villas in Tulemar, reviews seemed to peg Villa Mot Mot as the best for close-up monkey-viewing, since it's situated higher up on the hill and is even with the top of a forest canopy that serves as a sort of "monkey highway". The first afternoon, a troop of the endangered squirrel monkeys was hanging out for about a half hour in the trees just in front of our deck. The next morning around dawn, a few white-faced capuchin monkeys ran across the roof. At Tulemar's beach, we had a capuchin troop passing through during our second afternoon. On our last morning, only about an hour before we were planning to leave, we got a BIG experience: a troop of capuchins spent 20 minutes romping on our deck and rolling around in the hammock as we sat there beside them in awe.

The interior of Mot Mot seemed either newly updated or simply well maintained. The two queen beds and trundle worked well for mom, dad and our teenaged son. The a/c was needed and great. The pool, fortunately, is only a short hike up the hill from Mot Mot.

The concierge team gets in touch with you and emails a list of activities as soon as you book. You generally deal with the same person via email leading-up to your arrival and the response time to any questions is very quick. In our case, we booked a mangrove swamp boat tour while we were there, with the help of our excellent personal concierge, Al.

There are trails to the beach and if you're feeling lazy, a free shuttle ride to and from. Oh yeah, here's a nice touch: there is a ton of free gear available at the beach to Tulemar guests, including boogie boards and kayaks. There's also a tent set-up to serve snacks, as well as a bar and several nice, umbrella-covered tables under the trees.

Villa Mot Mot was a great way to experience wildlife up close and personal. I wouldn't recommend just sitting around the room, however. Manuel Antonio National Park is right down the road and there is plenty of wildlife there as well. We watched with delight, squirrel monkeys in the trees there, raccoons on the beach and an uber-large crocodile in the river delta. If you're looking for a fun stay in a wildlife rich environment, this is your place.

So perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We are here right now, staying in Villa Mot Mot. It is heaven. The property is beautiful. The staff is super friendly. Our concierge Al, has been so helpful. Always there to give us a dinner recommendations, a ride to the supermarket, or just there to ensure our excursions are on track. The pools, beach and restaurants have been great for us. 3 kids ages 6,8,10...love it here. Monkeys on our deck and by the pools and beach. We did the Quepos canyoning tour, surf lessons and are going white water rafting tomorrow. Loving Costa Rica!! Mot Mot is perfect for us.

Owner's Response: Bill, I agree, Mot Mot is heaven. Everyone who stays there says the same thing. It is pretty hard to get a family to go back home from Tulemar. I am so glad that you are enjoying Tulemar and the area. Please come back and stay with us again. Pura Vida, Cindy

Tulemar is centrally located in Manuel Antonio, so it is close to restaurants, bars, and shops within walking distance of the resort. The public beach, the National Park, and the Marina Pez Vela are all a short cab ride from the resort, and there are ample activities to do, such as ziplining, horseback riding, jet skiing, and paddleboarding.
