The property grounds @ beach were lovely the rooms however were 2 star at best We had originally rented a poolside apartment but it was on such bad condition we didn’t want to sleep there. The reservation staff were extremely accommodating & got us a room with a decent king bed far from the pool but we were ok putting up with that for 2 or our 5 nite stay with the idea we would b able to upgrade to a different area. As it turned out that was not an option & we decided to find other accommodations on day 3. orbitz was amazing support & finally got us a full refund for the 2 nites we didn’t use!!! Thank you Orbitz!!

The condo Arrecifes is outside the main complex and we did not feel safe. It is a great option for beach lovers but they are obsessed with charging for towels or anything they can blame you for getting lost.

The only thing good about the property is the location on the beach and close to many excursions other then that the rooms are outdated and the staff is not always attentive very rude and they lie to your face about simple things the restaurants are ok the 1 by the pool service was always slow or the food was cold you have to take a shuttle to get around the property which never runs on time a lot families and elders no entertainment drinks are ok but it’s cheap liquor some bartenders make great drinks others hey you’ll find out and see the restaurant at playa Blanca was the best the only place I recommend spending most of the day overall I will come back to Costa Rica just not this property

We stayed at Arrecifes apartments this time and the difference compared to Selvamar is day an night. The apartments are poorly built with no sound isolation.

Something I didn’t understand until I got there was that this is not a hotel, it’s a community. It includes apartments and condos for rent a pool complex and access to the beach. The apartment itself was nice and spacious and fully equipped. My only negative comment would have to beRegarding the pillows. They were hard and lumpy and made it hard to sleep. Everything else was as expected. You Definitely need a car to get around. The food was a little bit overpriced inside the complex. So we drove out into town a few times for meals.

Beautiful surroundings. Friendly staff. We were early for check in and yet they still made us wait until the very last minute to give us the key to the room (the hotel wasn't really full)...other hotels go out of their way to make sure you get your room as soon as possible even if its early. Other than that everything was perfect. We had a wonderful time!!

There was a problem during the checking (unexpected charge), but later they make the corresponding refund.
