We made a reservation to stay at Vida Sylvestre for this April. At the time we booked the reservation, the property told us there was beach access at Las Ranitas across from the hotel. We later learned that Las Ranitas was closed. The property owner claims they did not know Las Ranitas was closed, which seems difficult to believe given... More

We stayed here for about a week and unfortunately, this place did not live up to our expectations. Tulum is a great place for some relaxing days off with a somewhat odd mix of relaxed, low-key atmosphere but upmarket prices for hotels. This place has a great idea behind it: Stay in open villas in the jungle and awake to... More

We really enjoyed our time at Vida Silvestre. We had a very warm welcome from the groundskeeper and his very cute dog, and Laury was a very kind hostess. The villa had everything we needed and it was very peaceful. The reason I did not give 5 stars is that we went to go swimming in the pool but it... More

You can't be closer to nature than at Vida Silvestre. The five houses are made of wood and stone and do not have glass windows - just mosquito nets. They are beautifully designed and are very cosy. Don't expect any city extras as AC, TV or hair-dryers: you don't need them in paradise. During our four week stay we have... More

Without knowing anything about Tulum, this experience was a 10 for surprise and a 10 for convenience and a 10 for awesome. Vida Silvestre embodies the concept that you are in a jungle habitat, but literally a 5 minute walk from the beach and the type of Hotel that with the right attitude, it is a supreme place to stay....

Vida Silvestre was the perfect way to experience Tulum and feel like a local in a way. The location is wonderful, as it is almost at the end of the main strip of hotels and restaurants along the beach. It is close to the entrance of Sian Ka'an and right across the street from the beautiful beach. It feels nicely... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Sonia was friendly and helpful, and Oscar (the caretaker) and Mari (who cleaned our villa everyday) were also very nice and accommodating. The villa was comfortable, and had some lovely design elements. Our king size bed was comfortable, and I felt like I was in a tree house in our upstairs bedroom, but with... More

Where to begin? Vida Silvestre was absolutely perfect. We spent 8 nights in February, and the only downside was not being able to stay twice as long. As lovely as the photos are, the reality is even better. And Sonia is a warm, welcoming and helpful host. The little houses are well-equipped and very comfortable. Access to the beach is... More

We originally wanted a cabana on the beach but there was a reviewer on here who went ape about a bat, that made us laugh so much we booked it! It all depends what you want of course but here you get a whole house: 2 shower rooms, a sitting room, dining area, equipped kitchen (with a fridge and freezer),... More
