The people at Playa Selva are so lovely, especially Pepe who went out of his way to help answer all of our questions and ensure our stay was perfect. Playa Selva is within walking distance of places on the beach with food and drink, has bikes you can use every day, and it was very nice having a little place... More

Our family of four stayed in a bungalow just 25 yards from the beach. Two floors, kitchen, dining area, and bathroom on the main floor and lovely upstairs with a deck and lots of breezes on the second floor. The staff were fantastic - Pepe, Jose, and all of the others worked very hard to keep the place clean and... More

Our family of 4 stayed in the house with the kitchen on the first floor, kids bedroom on second floor (2 twins) and us on the third floor (king bed). Above that is a spectacular roof top patio. Was slightly worried about no A/C but it really was not a problem. The open windows and breeze and fan worked fine.... More

Hi, This place is amazing to relax and all the management is really cool. We'll come back! PEPE is a really nice guy always ready to help but also all of them are great. The place is really well maintained ( they are working all day long to insure this quality). Close to everything in tulum beach Julie and Laurent

Playa Selva is in a great location along the stretch of Tulum eco-lodges. The beach is stunning and there isn't a race to save beach loungers, there are plenty for everyone. The staff is fabulous. Pepe was always very helpful and suggested a lot of great activities for us, as well as arranging them. The tour of Sian Ka'an was... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights this past week at Playa Selva and had a fantastic time. Playa Selva is nestled deep into Tulum, along a quiet, beautiful beach. There is a shared kitchen, which we used just about every day/night. There's a grocery store up the road about 10 minutes, so stock up and make sure to make... More

Playa Selva is as perfect as you can get this side of heaven. The water is gorgeous and just the right temp. The sand is like talcum powder. You sleep to the sound of the waves. The bungalows are rustic. Low water pressure. Dim lights to help the turtle lay their eggs in just the right place. No irons or... More

This location is every bit as incredible as it looks online. The service and staff could not have been more pleasant or hospitable. They were absolutely delightful. And our reservation process with Manuela was equally delightful. The staff took impeccable care of the grounds and our casa. We stayed in Casa Playa. From both floors, you could see and hear...
