We`ve spent a marvellous time at Playa Selva. It`s a very unique spot to enjoy a peaceful time between your bungalow, palm trees, hammocks and the white sandy beach. Playa Selva is still very authentic compared to many other places along the beach. The owners and their staff are very nice and supportive! They organized a great trip to SianKaan,... More

My sister and I spent a week at this amazing gem of a place. From the moment we arrived to a personal greeting and a bowl of beautiful fresh fruit, until the moment we left, this experience was incredible. Being at Playa Selva felt like being with family. We loved the sheer beauty of the property, its low-key, off-the-grid feel,... More

My husband and I just got back from Tulum with another couple after a 5-night stay. We absolutely ADORED Playa Selva and its staff. It's really an enchanting place. Even though it rained and stormed half the time we were in Tulum, we didn't mind so much because we were so comfortable at Playa Selva. We stayed in La Palma,... More

My husband and I stayed one week in La Duna in May for our long overdue honeymoon. We chose Playa Selva based on the recommendation of a friend who had stayed there a couple years ago and absolutely loved it. She was right. It is truly a little piece of paradise! All the positive reviews are right on. The camp... More

We stayed here for almost ten days and can highly recommend this place. The rooms are wonderful, spacious, and very clean. The staff is very friendly and always there to help. There is direct access to Tulum's fantastic beach, and what we liked most was there very well-equipped kitchen, where we prepared breakfast and dinner from time to time.

My wife and I went on our honeymoon in early June 2014. We stayed in Cabana Maya (the A frame bungalow with the 2nd floor ocean view). Playa Selva was perfect in every way. The Cabana was very beautiful and kept perfectly clean by the staff. The ocean is 50 meters from the front door. The constant breeze from the... More

I stayed at La Duna at Playa Selva with 3 friends. We all had an amazing experience. The bungalows are right on the beach and surrounded by jungle-esque plants that offer natural beauty and privacy. It's clean and charming and the owners and staff have put careful thought into what guests want and need -- sea kayaks, bikes, coolers, and... More
