Paz Amore - Heaven on Earth

My family and I (husband, sister, parents, and 3 year old) stayed in Tulemar at Paz Amore and it was the best family vacation we've ever had. First, the home. It's a gorgeous three story modern space with lots of glass so that from anywhere in the house you can see the lush greenery of the rainforest. The kitchen was large and well equipped with everything we needed to make meals. Beds were very comfortable, bathrooms were perfect. The tub in the master is even better than it looks in the photos. Paz Amore one of the few homes in Tulemar that has a backyard, which was perfect for our kiddo. We also all adored the pool. Perfect design, toddler friendly, and warm enough to dip into whenever. We saw so much wildlife just from inside or around the home every single day: sloths, toucans, macaws, 3 types of monkeys, coatis, plus tons of other lovely colorful birds. The monkey were so close by, we couldn't believe it! The private beach at Tulemar is wonderful, we went down there every single day, and the staff working there was always so kind. You can even order food and drinks or have lunch by the beach. The service is so outstanding at Tulemar. The cleaning staff was so professional and kind, leaving the house spotless each day. Any time we called for a van someone was there within the short time frame they shared. And of course, our concierge, Chris! Chris is an all around great guy and helped us with anything we needed from food to reservations to excursions. He also surprised us many nights with treats for the family, which was so appreciated by all. We all had a blast and none of us wanted to leave. It's been a week now and I still wish I were back at Paz Amore!

Monkitail is my favorite place in costa rica to visit with my girlfriend. We keep coming back and are on our 4th visit! The view is amazing. There is a private beach with food and drink service and a perfect sunset every night. We spent our last day swimming in the ocean and using the provided boogie boards. There are also kayaks available for guests to use. Thank you to all monkitail staff! Can’t wait to come back soon!

My family loved our vacation in Costa Rica. But what made it so special was the villa, Pazamore, in Tulemar. We saw a lot of beautiful villas in Tulemar, but Pazamore stood out because of its architectural style. Just look at the pictures on their website. Even though pictures are great, you really need to see the house in person! You will be blown away! It’s awesome! When you walk through the front door, you are greeted with big views of the Pacific, and big views of the house itself! The house is set up with big open-air areas which was perfect for our family and kids. Every bedroom is a suite! The house opens to a pool that we used every day. And it even has a grassy yard where our kids played. At Pazamore, we saw lots of Toucans every day! They were in the trees all around the house. We saw three different kinds monkeys just feet away from us in the trees. And a sloth made its home in one of the trees in the yard, too. We used the Tulemar private beach a lot. They have food and drink service at the beach, too. The people there are all very friendly. Chris, our concierge, helped us with everything. Excursions, restaurant reservations . . . and he also had nice surprise treats for us during our stay. I can’t say enough about the level of service they provide. We will come back to Tulemar, and we will definitely stay at Pazamore!

PazAmore is Mesmerizing!

Charles S wrote a review Oct 27 There’s a certain effect granted to those living within, and surrounded by, pure mountain air. My stay at PazAmore in Tulemar was breathtaking…with ample oxygen replenishment. Gorgeous! Peaceful! Tranquil! Sedating…Welcoming! All of that and more accompanied me throughout my vacation. All of that IS Costa Rica au natural. PazAmore is snuggly nestled within this beautiful Tropical Forest scenery joined by monkeys, toucans, macaws, sloths and more with every variety of wild horticulture accenting my daily views. I want to especially thank our concierge, Raul, for his attention to detail while helped us fit right in. Thanks Raul for suggesting the Turtle Release. This was much more than a vacation. This was a living experience. That of which I have sponged internally. And there it will remain… until the next time.

Fantastic Time at Pazamore Tulemar

At Pazamore we had our own personal paradise. Waking up every morning to spectacular views and the sounds of Macaws. Afternoon visits by multiple kinds of monkeys that would always entertain. Best of all our excellent concierge Raul who was always there to help from excursions to just making sure we had everything we needed. Can’t wait to come back again soon!

I can’t say enough about the wonderful time we had. PazAmore is a vacationers dream. The views are indescribable, from the ocean, sunset, and wildlife. After our excursions during the day, we couldn’t wait to get back to the Villa to relax. The set up is amazing and there isn’t anything we would change except maybe to stay longer next time. Raul, our concierge was equally as wonderful. He was indispensable planning activities for us, always easy to get ahold of and helped every step of the way. PazAmore and Raul will give you a vacation that you will remember for a lifetime.

Amazing Views & perfect for solo/couple trips!

Great stay at Monkitail in Tulemar! I had been wanting to stay in this unit for awhile as it has a fantastic view, exceptional furnishings, and is located right next to one of the pools and shuttle spots. Raul was a fantastic concierge and made sure that I was taken care of during my stay. The housekeepers do a great job of coming in daily and keeping the place very clean. The tub on the patio was great for hot tub like soaks while watching the sunset. It was great being able to have access to a pool so close by (to myself for a lot of the stay!). It is the perfect size for a solo traveler or a couple with a spacious studio layout including a small kitchen area and bbq grill. As someone who frequents Tulemar, I expect to be back many times in the future and will keep Monkitail at the top of the list!

PazAmorè is Perfection!!! Peace and Love!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ PazAmorè is more beautiful than I have words to explain! The Villa is just perfect! Modern and comfortable— it’s like living out of a magazine! Raul and Luis were the best concierges and ensured the best time! We did not want or wonder for anything! They set up the best tours, helped with transportation— we did not have a need that went unmet! I have never been treated so good!! The house has the best architectural design and decor (went down a Andres Brenes rabbit hole on Instagram while relaxing on the patio)! It’s comfortable and the views— well they don’t get better!! Waking up to paradise every day!! The cleaning crew was perfect and the place was absolutely spotless! It was great to leave the worries of daily living behind and have a vacation of a lifetime experience. The wildlife was on the property was so beautiful!! The care that goes into the land and property is much appreciated!! Can’t wait to visit again!!! The staff at the Cafè and beach were the best— the food was top notch!! Best time ever! I can’t name a single thing I would want different (other than to stay longer and bring the kids!)

Beyond Expectations

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Our stay at Monkitail was beyond our expectations. We went in looking for a break and relaxation and that’s exactly what we got and then some. Having Raul as our concierge was fantastic. I wasn’t expecting to use concierge services as much as we did but it was great having Raul available to answer any question we had or set up any service needed for a seamless experience (Side note- our rental car ended up with a flat and Raul was kind enough to get it situated and fixed asap). I have already mentioned our stay to several people and am already planning a next trip, we cannot wait to return and hope Raul is there to greet us. Few other things to note- the shuttle services around the resort were awesome especially Andres (fast, convenient, and friendly), the restaurant food and service (Emilio and the rest of the staff) was some of the best I have had anywhere so we decided to eat there the entire week, the private beach and great service was a fantastic spot to spend all day to relax and enjoy food and cocktails.
