A pleasant family getaway

The Monkitail accommodations are top notch! Everything you need for a quiet and peaceful getaway. You are secluded enough to feel alone, yet close to all the amenities. The Tulemar community really makes you feel at home and safe. Raul, your personal concierge, goes above and beyond all expectations to help you make the most of your holiday. I would recommend monkitail and all that it comes with to anyone. Thank you for the wonderful and long awaited vacation!

Family Time

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We had the most wonderful stay in Monkitail 303! The octagon shape with windows all the way around feels like you’re in a tree house! The view of the sunset is second to none. The bungalow is so clean and well maintained. The concierge, Raul, goes above and beyond. The 2 beds and day bed suited our family with a teen boy and girl wonderfully. Tulemar is just fabulous. The steep mountain and beach makes it perfect for seeing monkeys & sloths and having access to the beach. The whole property is well maintained, secured with guards throughout and a gate - although I never felt unsafe outside of Tulemar - it’s still nice to be in a secure location when traveling. The Tulecafe served excellent food all 3 meals and had a very friendly staff. We easily could have been happy without ever leaving Tulemar but we chose to explore. The beach has the perfect waves. Small enough to just wade out and cool down yet big enough for boogey boarding fun. There is also the option of shade or sun on the beach. The pina coladas didn’t disappoint either. We are already trying to find a time to return. Highly recommend!!

Our family stayed at the PazAmore in late February for a week. The house is amazing. Master bedroom is incredible, as well as the yard and pool. The kids spent at least 3 hours a day in the pool. Great patio for grilling and hanging out with the adults while the kids are swimming. As always in Tulemar, the views and animals are awesome. Staff was excellent. Raul asks and gets a feel of how hands on or hands off you want he and the staff to be. They were great. We would recommend this property for anyone, families, friends, couples or a mix. Thank you to everyone whom made our very memorable.

Birthday Trip

My boyfriend and I went to Tulemar resort for his birthday. The staff went out of their way to make it a special stay by surprising him with a cake, champagne, and balloons. We loved our stay can’t wait to come back again! Raul was great and was there to answer any questions we had. Thanks again for a wonderful trip!

Most incredible vacation!

Tulemar is amazing gem. Monkitail views and decor are indescribable. Saw other villas and the owners Glenn and Jules really know how to impress. The entire Tulemar staff WILL exceed your expectations. Raul our concierge was great! The people of Costa Rica are so friendly and make you feel right at home. Only mistake was only staying 1 week. You need at least two or more. Words can’t describe how incredible this vacation was. We are planning out next trip there after I finish this review.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Wow! Staying at Monkitail for our family of 4 was an experience which far exceeded our wildest expectations. A gorgeous private villa and resort with the most spectacular views. We saw more wildlife than we would have expected from the porch and pool which also overlooks the ocean. Toucans, macaws, sloths, monkeys, iguanas, geckos, and more! Raul, the concierge, really went above and beyond for us to make our vacation more comfortable. We did not rent a car so having someone to help organize food deliveries (including Miguel, a personal chef!) And activities was awesome. Highly recommend for anyone looking for nature, wildlife, and serenity.

It is hard to put into words how amazing PazAmoré is. Let’s just say perfect! You can see the attention to detail. The grounds surrounding the house are just as amazing. To wake up every morning and sit outside with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise and the wild life and all the sounds they make is surreal. PazAmoré is the perfect place for Costa Rica and you can see the owners love and passion for this place all around you. The concierge Raul was awesome, he helped with all our bookings and anything we needed. Since I have been home all I can think about is when am I going back. Costa Rica is as beautiful as the people that live there. I can see why people want to live there. What an amazing experience.

Love this place!

Monkitail has amazing views! It’s the perfect place to get away for some much needed rest and relaxation! The bungalow is amazing with its modern design and amenities. There is a pool area as well if you don’t want to swim in that beautiful Pacific Ocean! Our concierge Raul is great! He helped with booking our tours or anything we needed. I would highly recommend Monkitail to anyone going to Costa Rica. This is an amazing country with amazing people! We will definitely be booking again!
