Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
This year's recipient of TripAdvisor's "Traveler's Choice" award for "Best Hotel for Families - Costa Rica" and "Best Hotel for Families - Central America" is Manuel Antonio's Tulemar Resort. Located on the picturesque Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Tulemar also ranked second in the "Best Hotel for Families - World" category.
The awards and rankings are comprised of the reviews and ratings the resort has received from the social media site's community of millions of travelers around the globe.
"This is especially gratifying for us because family vacations are such an important experience," says Dave Houck, spokesperson for the resort. "Traveling as a family can be challenging, with different guests having different needs and expectations. Because these awards are determined by guest satisfaction, it's a real affirmation that we're meeting the goals of excellence that we strive so hard for. We want everyone to have an unforgettable stay," he adds.
Offering a wide range of accommodations of different sizes and costs, the resort scores high marks with TripAdvisor users in terms of the usual guest considerations, including location, service, value and cleanliness. Houck recognizes that Tulemar offers families some extra benefits that don't fit neatly into the usual categories.
"Our jungle location is an incredible attraction, and our beach is calm and uncrowded. It's perfect for playing in the waves, and we provide sea kayaks, boogie board, lounge chairs and umbrellas for our guests to use free of charge. Wildlife including three types of monkeys, two types of sloths, exotic birds and many different reptiles are abundant at the resort, and many families tell us they see the same number of jungle animals inside Tulemar as they do in the nearby Manuel Antonio National Park.
"There are so many exciting activities to do in the area that kids and adults alike never have a chance to get bored," he says.
In the globally competitive marketplace for travel dollars, Tulemar Resort finds that success comes from providing value and service to travelers.
"We offer all our guests an online concierge to assist with their pre-arrival planning. That makes a huge difference, since it frees our guests from the potential headaches and pitfalls of planning things themselves. Once they arrive, guests have a personal concierge to make sure everything goes as planned," Houck reports.
With summer vacations just around the corner, Tulemar Resort can accommodate families of all sizes with properties options ranging from one-bedroom bungalows to large luxury villas.
