                My extended family had stayed on this property two years ago and decided to return this year for two weeks. We were not disappointed! We had a great time kayaking, hiking, going to the beach, zip lining, horseback riding and whale watching. I highly recommend the Mar y Selva. We chose to use the chef services for supper this time and Ester is a fantastic chef! Here seafood dishes are to die for :)

                Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with teenagers, sightseeing, age 55+, romantic getaway, girls getaway.

                I can not say enough about the Mar y Selva staff and facilities, they were fantastic. My extended family and I stayed there for a week during the Whale festival and we absolutely had a blast. The hotel was exactly as advertised (very refreshing if you have ever been sucked in by the advertisements and then arrived to find that it wasn't exactly what was advertised or the photos were years old) and the staff was very helpful and responsive. We were able to see the whales and enjoy other once in a lifetime experiences as well. While in Costa Rica we also went horse back riding, zip lining and took a tour of the local environmental reserves. All in all just a fantastic experience.
