“Perfect for young children.”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I spent a week at the house. I was surprised how spacious and comfortable it was. The kitchen is completely equipped with all a family with kids will need. My kids had a nice time watching coatis (a sort of raccoon) visiting each morning the back yard. In addition, staying at Playacar is way more relaxing than staying downtown; and Playa del Carmen is perfectly centered if you want to visit Cancun, Tulum, Xel-Ha, X-Caret or nearly locations. I will not hesitate to stay at this same location on my next visit.

“Good Location, Good comfort”
Reviewed 22 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

people found this review helpful

My husband, 13 year old daughter and I stayed at Casa Selva Caribe for one week in March. We selected this property through TripAdvisor. Booking was easy, the owner provided good instructions before we arrived and the property manager was welcoming and helpful during our stay. The villa is in a complex of about 20 single home condos. The house faces the pool the back overlooks the nearby aviary (so bird watching is fun!). We also saw lots of agoutis and coatimundis in the forest aviary.
The house is very comfortable. There is air conditioning but we just used the ceiling fans while there - be aware that the AC really chews up kilowatts and you will go over the $50 for electricity included in the rental. We didn't :-) The 3 bedrooms are all spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is smallish but sufficient and well supplied with pots, pans, etc. - the property manager even stocked the fridge with milk and juice before we arrived!
The villa is in the quiet gated Playacar community but is only It’s a 10 minute walk to the beach and about 15 minutes to walk to the lively 5th Ave strip. Very good location for enjoying anything on the Mayan Riviera. We highly recommend Casa Selva Caribe for a relaxing home-base for any vacation in the area.
