“Wonderful Place to Stay in PDC”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

From the booking, staying at the property and afterwards, this property was magnificent. The villa is inside a very secure complex but close to most attractions in PDC and about a ten minute walk to the beach. With a car, we had no trouble at all getting around town and beyond.

The place is very clean and properly maintained. The kitchen was well-equipped with all the necessary tools for cooking. It was very nice coming back to such a nice and quiet place after a long day of running around. We were also able to see some wildlife from the bedroom balcony and downstairs patio. Angela, the property manager was very professional and helpful with our inquiries.

We really enjoyed our stay here. There is no question that this villa is a great place to stay if you are in the PDC area.

“Excellent acommdations, perfect location, best vacation”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I just can't say enough great things about Casa Selva Caribe. The villa is so well cared for and the condo was really comfy with everything we needed to cook our meals, make great drinks and have a wonderful time. It was quiet, with the exception of the birds, which I loved - best alarm clock ever! - secure, clean. For me, the location could not have been better. If you love nature, this is a fantastic place to stay. I got to see so many amazing birds. Loved the coati and agouti. Everyone in the villa was very friendly and the pool was perfect. When we wanted to go into Playa for dinner or shopping, it was a short walk to get to the center of whatever we were looking for. I plan to keep the info for this condo for future visits. I miss the chachalacas, grackles and Yucatan jays walking me in the morning.

Liked best: Location. Loved waking to the birds every morning and watching them during the day.
Liked least: The heat/humidity. April was too late in the year to go and it was difficult to go anywhere during the day.

“Perfect place to stay with family and friends”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in November 2015

My family and I stayed in Casa Selva Caribe during the preparations of my wedding and we couldn't have chosen a better place. The location within secure Playacar and the facilities of the villa itself satisfied all needs we possibly had. It was very comfortable, relax, quiet, and the shared pool in the common backyard was simply delicious. David's instructions made the whole rental process extremely easy and although we never met the local property manager (as we were out and about most of the time), we knew that we were well taken care of, as we constantly received fresh water casks on our door when we arrived back "home". Many thanks for this wonderful stay! We would always come back if we had the opportunity.

“Relaxing, comfortable and complete vacation villa”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a great time staying in this villa. The house is very complete and large. All you need for a nice stay is available in the house. And if anything is missing or broken, the location manager, Dante, is at your service.
It's location is secluded from the 'main' road, so it has a lot of privacy. The good thing though is that it is closely to Playa del Carmen. Within 15 minutes walking you are on the main avenue of Playa del Carmen. We walked a lot towards the center, and came back by taxi. Pretty easy to do so, if you have young children.
It's worth the money. If we visit Playacar again in the future, for sure we will try to book this place again.

“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.
