Our room was very nice and clean. The walkway down to the rooms is fairly steep but doable as long as you don't have mobility issues. The breakfasts are prepared fresh, no steam table stuff, and they asked what time we would like to have it served. Although the staff did not speak English we communicated just fine using the Google translate on our phones, The pool is huge but they were working on it so we were unable to take advantage of it. My only complaint is that the safe in our room was unusable because a previous guest had kept the key and they didn't have another one. We don't like just leaving money and passports in our room or having to carry it all with us if we want to go somewhere. It wasn't as big of a deal since we were the only two guests and there is always staff present. We thought about having them move us to another room that had a working safe but many of the other rooms had the same issue.…
My family came here for a family vacation. When it rains the electric went out so did the water. There's hills getting to the bungalows and not many tvs. The main house has steps to go up and the door doesn't lock. This place is not good for elderly or people with health issues. It is located on a hill, will need a car or plan on spending money on taxis. Staff doesn't speak English and leave food out for bugs and ants to get in.
This hotel is in the jungle and claims to be environmentally friendly. They have regular parties with such loud music it disturbs people for many kilometers. Scares the monkeys and other wildlife away too. Terrible.
Just got back from an absolutely amazing vacation at the Mar y Selva Ecolodge! We had a large group and plenty of space. The bungalows were all clean and well maintained. My AC worked so well that I had to turn it off at times. The pool was a great way to be welcomed to the lodge. Our staff are top rate as they cooked several meals for us and took care of our rooms on a daily basis. If you want a place to enjoy nature, relax, and be treated like family, this is the place to come.
We stayed for a week with a group of 28. Gabriel and his staff were incredible. The rooms were comfortable and very clean and the staff kept the entire place that way. I highly recommend staying here with a group. Breakfast was ready every morning according to the time we were going on tours. They were extremely accommodating and helped set up everything. We had the staff prepare our meals most evenings and it was perfect. The only thing I would've done differently is rent a vehicle. The view is breathtaking and we were visited by a troop of monkeys and saw tons of wildlife just by walking around the property.
