I have stayed at Selva Romantica the last 5 or 6 years and always stay in the Safari units. A number of times I have stayed in Safari 6 which I again did this year for ten days starting in the first week of Jan. My daughter and her boyfriend joined me later in the week and stayed in Safari 10.
I wouldn't stay any other place. I only took a carry on with me as they have a laundry room that is free for the use of guests.
The beach, tons of restaurants and bars are all with in walking distance. I can be on the beach in five minutes or at a number of bars and restaurants in the same time frame. Incidentally the best massage in the whole city is just a three minute walk down the hill owned by Angie called Metamorfosis Day Spa.
I have written many reviews and usually ready the previous reviews of others to see if I'm going to be fair in criticism or praise as I know a lot of businesses can be hurt or helped by how many stars they are given.
There was a previous review which gave this place one star for reasons such as too many stairs, don't cater to children and not close to Walmart so he has to take a ten mile bus ride to get food..
I can't believe the reviewer didn't know there was steps as it is mentioned in almost every review on here including a couple in their 60's that wrote a review who handled the steps well and chalked it up to good exercise. That being said anyone with a handicap should look for a place elsewhere.
Second this place never advertises that it's a children friendly property.
Third, who the heck wants to go to Walmart in Mexico? I cooked out at the condo many times and there are numerous butcher shops, fresh seafood shops and produce shops and the Central market that are all with-in walking distance. The reviewer also gave this place one star for the location. Most people rent here because of the location as can be evidenced by all the reviews that give this place 5 stars for the location. Funny he has only one review.
I have always booked with Eileen Key as did my daughter. There is nothing she wouldn't do for her guests. She has also become a friend. Yes I heard about “Mr. Miserable” from her because she called me up one night almost in tears wanting to talk. She explained she never had a client like Tom Bell and tried everything she could to please him.
I see she responded to his review but I think she is too much of a lady to go into details of some of the things he said on his part as told to me. I see he also has only one review..
Anyone that has been on been on Tripadvsor for any length of time will see one or two bad reviews mixed in with mostly all 4 and 5 star reviews.
I myself will gladly continue to stay at Selva Romantica and also would like to tell the owners of Safari 6 how much I have enjoyed their unit.
