We had an amazing time at Playa Selva! The location is superb- it is right on the beach and you walk out straight on sand when you leave the room. It has its own private beach so you don't have to worry about it being too crowded. There is taco place right next door if you get hungry! The staff...

Playa Selva is a little piece of heaven. The accommodations are a stone's throw from the ocean but yet set back enough behind the greenery to ensure privacy. The beach is pristine and there are wonderfully comfortable beach chairs for Playa Selva guests. The property is immaculate both inside the guest houses and outside. The WiFi signal worked perfectly and...

This review is WAY past due, being my first review on Playa Selva after becoming a regular there since 2011. We've visited them twice this year, once in March with my whole family, and again with my husband and sister this October. So far we have stayed in every cabana and beach house that Playa Selva offers but one, and...

I almost don't want to write this review, if only to try and ensure that Playa Selva isn't all booked up next time I want to visit Tulum. It was a fantastic experience. My wife and I and one other couple stayed one week in the Cabana Maya, one of the smaller bungalows on the property. It was neatly appointed,...

I don't want to stay at any other place in Tulum. The location is perfect for walking to the best restaurants or just strolling the beach. The fact that they have a communal kitchen there made it really easy to save money by not eating every meal out. It's a small compound so you feel like it's your own private...
