The location on the shore of the lagoon is terrific. The view and the water was terrific. Our separate tiny bungalow was rustic as expected, clean and the bed was comfortable. A hot complimentary breakfast was a plus. The grounds were a mess. There are a few "work away" labourers around, but they all seem to be doing kitchen, bar,...

pros: the rooms are nice and the staff are polite. cons: only 2 kayaks and 2 paddleboards for the ENTIRE hotel. so technically there is kayaking but that doesn't mean YOU will be the one kayaking. the food is expensive and not worth the price. there is no bar. last year my family and i stayed at monkeyhut and were...

They have 11 different rooms, for 2 people 3, 5 and 8! Each room is a different city in the world. You could stay in Afrika tonight and tomorrow you will wake up watching the lagoon through a window which doesnt exist . It s open towards the lagoon. Fabulous. Maybe the day later you could check out Bali and...

NOTE: They have a beach and offer a day visit service. That is what we did here. This is the place to get away and enjoy a day at the beach. They call this the beach but it is a lakefront. You can stay at this place as a hotel guest or just for a day to enjoy a private...

The staff at this hotel was nice and helpful. However, I was surprised that the beach area wasn't nicer. The pool was also dirty. And the a/c in our room kept spitting out ice and making noise all night so we didn't get a good night sleep.

I rarely feel so motivated to write a review for anything online, but my experience at Selva Azul was one of the best I've had in Central America. Paddle boarding and kayaking were free for guests staying at the hotel, and they share a very nice beachfront with the hotel next door. I stayed in two different rooms, the Vencia...

Honestly, this place had so much potential to be great, but one thing after another just made me regret our choice to book here. As soon as you get there you walk thrpugh an amazing oasis to get to each little villa, which gave us high hopes. We stayed for two nights and if we could of found another place...

I have visited here twice. The first time, it was pretty quiet, and very green. The manager and I talked a while. The view is quite nice. There were more people the second time I dropped by, very noisy, very loud music playing. Probably a great place for people looking for a party, not for a family.

We stayed in Casita Africa and loved it, great view of laguna, one side is open to this beautiful view. Great lake for swimming. Kayaks are available and I enjoyed kayaking. The restaurant is very good. Breakfast is included - eggs, gallopinto, pancakes, bread, coffee, tea. Great staff. Highly recommended.
