5/5 Excellent

First time in a Selina and was a great experience! We stayed in the deluxe king room with private bathroom which was clean and the ac was nice and cold! I cannot review the share bathroom because didn’t use it! The staff was great and helpful... location is great and common kitchen was clean and large! Overall I love the experience in Selina Tamarindo

3/5

The VIBE in the place is effectively a positive point... no hot water, parking lot flooded and on the last day surprise! No water! Great for a Sunday where people have to leave for long trips (May 26th 2019). Accommodation is ok and the cafeteria is really good. Another negative point is the security at night super rude and treating people like if everyone was trying to break rules or something like that. Definitively an experience not to repeat.

5/5 Excellent

The hospitality of this property was far better than any other hostel i've been to in any country. The front desk staff went above and beyond. I'll never stay anywhere else in tamarindo.

1/5

Bugs all over the room. Floors, walls, shower and crawling on the sheets and pillows. Toilet didn't work, front desk lied and said someone was coming in 20 mins to fix it. No one ever came. We checked out after one night because the infestation was too much for us to tolerate. Slept in the hammocks outside because there were literally fewer bugs outside. Wouldn't even recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. Dirty and disgusting. Front desk lady was rude and unhelpful. Said they are very aware of the bug problem (yet still charge top dollar for their bug infested rooms).
