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!

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.

Relaxing getaway with all the animals!

My boyfriend and I have visited Monkeytail 4 times because we love it so much! It truly is the most romantic spot in all of Costa Rica. On this particular vacation we were greeted by sloths, toucans, macaws, squirrel monkeys, capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, agoutis, hummingbirds, and butterflies. All observable within the Tulemar resort and many just outside our balcony! Thank you to all the monkeytail staff that have made our vacation the most luxurious and worry free each and every time!

Amazing rental house and resort!!!

Love it!!! Especially the part about them laughing at their kids 🤣🤣... very funny ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Amazing rental house and resort!!! We stayed in PazAmore rental home in Tulemar with 4 teenagers and 2 adults. We agreed it was one of our top 2 vacations ever and we travel quite a bit. The house: We have only stayed in PazAmore so I can’t compare but I can tell you what we loved about it. • Very new and modern with an amazing kitchen • Super comfy living room and outdoor furniture which I find rare in vacation rentals • Beds were comfortable • All 3 bedrooms had terrific balconies with comfy furniture and amazing views • Loved the swing on the master bedroom balcony • Loved the indoor/outdoor shower in the master --- one rain shower head on one end, soaking tub in the middle, and regular shower head on the other end --- saw 2 macaws fly by while showering on my first day • Raul (concierge) was fantastic • Great pool with cool lounge chairs and an umbrella in the water --- the photos online make it look far from the house but it is not at all • Covered fire pit by the pool was great • The living room has one of those Big A** Fans that are super expensive and work amazing….in fact, they have fans in every room, balcony, and patio which we loved • Laundry room was right off of living room so very convenient and great • Beautiful landscaping all around the house • Location was good….seemed like about halfway between the bottom (beach) and top (restaurants/shops) so we could walk either way if we were up for the workout 😊 The resort: • Best beach EVER for fun in the water. It is in a little alcove so we didn’t worry about a teenager floating away by accident or anything! It also has amazing waves so we did boogie boarding for hours and would just stand and jump over the waves for hours. I’ve never had so much fun at a beach before. Also, they have big trees that you can set your chairs under to be in the shade if you choose….or plenty of sun. Lots of wildlife right on the beach (sloths, monkeys, etc.). David, the beach attendant, was fantastic!!!! He would set up chairs, get us towels, provide boogie boards, and call the shuttle with a big smile. He also saved the day when 2 of the teens couldn’t figure out how to get the kayak out over the waves (which was hilarious to us!) …. David came to the rescue since we were too busy laughing at them. We didn’t have as much luck with the food attendants (kept having to track them down to order) but it was convenient to be able to have food/drinks delivered to the beach from Tule Café. • Shuttle service was prompt (only waiting 5-10 minutes) and the drivers were so friendly • We felt safe during COVID….not hampered by restrictions, but like the staff was being cautious and considerate • The grounds are so beautiful and we saw lots of animals every day • Very convenient having grocery stores and restaurants that we could walk to. We took the shuttle to the gate of the resort and walked from there. • Each house comes with a personal concierge which made the trip so easy! We had Raul and he was perfect. Super friendly and helpful. Even provide a ride when my daughter needed to go to the clinic in Quepos (about 10 minute drive) for a piece of plastic stuck in her eye. It was so nice traveling internationally with the ability to text someone at anytime to get advice or help. • So many activities in the area with our favorites being surf lessons, white water rafting, and jet skiing. Tip: PazAmore house was amazing!!

Everything is Perfect!

Spent a week at the Pazamore House in Tulemar, and everything about the week (and everything leading up to it) was perfect. As soon as you book, you are put in touch with a concierge. Ours was Raul, and he was amazing at handling details of transportation, groceries, excursions, private chef, etc. He takes away all of the worry. The house is amazing! perfect for our 6 adults and 3 young children. The photos on the website are accurate. We saw monkeys, sloths, parrots, macaws everyday. The gardens are beautiful. Can't say enough about the house and the surroundings. The private beach was great - we were there every day. David, the beach concierge, was perfect in every way. He knew our names and preferences after the first day and went out of his way to make sure we had what we needed at the beach. We opted for the private chef, and are glad we did. Esteban did all of the grocery shopping, food prep and clean up, leaving us more time to enjoy the house and pool. Everyone we interacted with from shuttle drivers to housekeepers to groundskeepers was friendly and helpful. This really is the perfect vacation arrangement. We have already started looking at a return trip.
