This is a great, quiet spot for a relaxing getaway. From walking up and down the beach looking at other places to stay, I think I picked the best one! The property feels very private, and the whole place is incredibly lovely. Ocean views, lovely ocean breeze, everything you could need. I spent my whole vacation on the property and...

My girlfriend and I booked this place for 8 nights in July 2013 and it was a gem find. It's a place we hope to return to very often. The onsite staff made it so comfortable for us. And the fact that there was a communal kitchen where we could cook and store our food (they offer a large ice...

My family and I just came back from staying at Playa Selva in Sept. I loved everything about this place. It is clean and there is always someone there to help you out.

Playa Selva is a picture perfect place: white sandy beaches, emerald green ocean, well-kept premises, and clean Bungalows. We stayed at the Cabana Maya bungalow, which is historically the first of the many bungalows on site. The second story has an amazing view of the ocean, and the constant ocean breeze makes it a truly memorable spot in the cabana....

This was our second stay at Playa Selva, and we love it! Susanna, Javier, Mari, and the other staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms and grounds are beautifully kept, and the beach is marvelous. Javier told us all about the sea turtles, and then we were lucky to get to see one that came ashore to lay eggs...

Remarkable place, fantastic beach. Very friendly personnel always ready to help. The kitchen is very convenient for a breakfast. The room is big and clean (we had on the second floor overlooking the sea). Absence of restaurant doesn't disturb. Joanna gave us recommendations about local restaurants and helped to organize interesting trips by a taxi. Feeling that you are visiting...

Utterly in love with this place. Gorgeous compound, sumptuous beach. Playa Selva is located at the quieter end of Tulum. Very peaceful. Moving around is quite easy – bike or walk. Plenty of cabs wandering around if you need a ride to the Pueblo. Some nights, we could hear the noise coming from Camping Chavez. Drums, singing, laughing, chanting. It...

Great beach & comfortable cabanas. Small fleet of bikes for guest use. My favorite part was the common area/kitchen. Each cabana gets their own cooler which is regularly replenished with ice blocks. Cold water & beer on demand! In between binging on not so healthy food in the pueblo, it's nice to have the option of preparing a healthy meal...
