Property Description

From sleepy fishing village to booming beach town, Tamarindo has become one of Costa Rica’s most popular destinations. Even as specialty cafés, chic boutiques, and global fusion restaurants fill its streets, it has managed to maintain its relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Just 30 miles from the Liberia international airport, it offers easy access to beautiful beaches and unique tropical ecosystems.

Selina Tamarindo continues our tradition of sustainable properties that blend naturally with their environment. We seek to build community here, and daily activities like morning yoga, salsa lessons, and surfing classes do just that. Our common areas, like the swimming pool, kitchen, and playground with live music and DJ sets on the weekends are perfect for socializing and making friends. Make sure you try the delicious concoctions of our restaurant & bar.

From ocean activities to tours of the jungle, Tamarindo has no shortage of things to do. Learn how to surf, go horseback riding on the beach, or put on a snorkel and mask to head below the water’s surface. You can also go sports fishing and even take a canoe tour through the waters of the Tamarindo Wildlife Refuge. The town, filled with travelers, expats, and locals, has tons of options for eating, drinking, and shopping; no matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll certainly experience “pura vida” in Tamarindo.

    Female, Solo. I came for holiday to surf, do yoga, and relax. The environment at Selina provided me with this, along with much more. Whether you want to play drunk pool with your friends, go to the smoker's garden for quality conversation, or lay in the hammock to recover alone or with someone ;) there is so much here. On top of the amenities, Selina's staff is excellent, offering activities every day like Sunset SUP, Salsa Class, and much more. Trust me, stay here.

    I loved my stay as a female solo traveler! The staff was incredibly friendly. I stayed in the 4 bed dorm and it was basic but you won’t be in your room anyway. The location is fantastic and right next to the beach. The place is social and I met a lot of people in a short time. The surf lessons were so fun and I would recommend giving them a try!

    This is an overall great place to stay. Its a big property, with a nice pool, great staff, decent food and drinks. The rooms are all spread out in little bungalows/cabins. The standard double bed (ensuite) was smaller than expected. But of course in Tamarindo you don't spend much time in your room (but it could use a desk or something). Its a social hostel, lots of organized events and stuff to do.

    Highly rate this hostel. It’s location and atmosphere are fantastic. I met countless people here and stayed for 7 days. It has a great location and is no more than a ten minute walk from anywhere you need to be. The security guard in the evening was particularly threatening and on many occasions wandered around brandishing a baton. Despite this the majority of the staff were lovely. I highly recommend taking part in the Selina activities as there are prizes to be won!!

    Shared bathrooms were not cleaned enough. Also in the mornings they were all covered in mosquitoes to the point where I couldn’t stay in there long. Also I would recommend they add hooks in the bathroom to hold your clothes and towels. Also mirrors in all the bathrooms and rooms. The staff were all very kind, and it’s in a great location. But the bathrooms were bad enough to where I would not recommend anyone stay here.
