When arriving at Playa Selva you know that you have stumbled into a paradise. The beach is the most beautiful spot with white sand turquoise water. The thatched roof cabanas sit right on the beach and you can hear the waves and breathe the ocean air and get the best relaxing sleep. The rooms are simple yet tastefully designed and... More

The great thing about this specific location is it is pretty quiet and central to a lot of the great restaurants and bars. The... More

Playa Selva in general has a great atmosphere. Our room (La Palma) in particular was great for a romantic vacation next to the sea.

Our room was clean and spacious, it... More

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... More
