We had a group trip here for ~45 people and Mira Selva was a great choice. Close enough to a number of greg beaches and sites and secluded enough that we didn't have to worry about disturbing anyone. Bernan and the staff were great and everyone enjoyed their stay. It's not one of the options, but I would definitely recommend this property for groups looking to combine a little work and pleasure.
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 :)
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.
