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.

    The staff are very kind and the location was perfect for me and my travel itinerary for a few days that I visited Tamarindo! The pool was amazing especially on a hot day when all you wanted to do was have a drink and relax. They offer live music and the bands were great! The food was good and the hostel was nice. However cold! Make sure to ask the front desk for a blanket as they will provide you one free of charge!

    The facilities are very nice. However, it felt like a frat party mixed with a resort with dorm rooms. Was not exactly my speed, but if you are into that you will love it here.

    The hostel was okay! The staff were pretty slow and sometimes not even at the front desk. Checking in and out took a looooonnnng time. Our room keys almost never worked. However Karaoke night was a blast and the staff were all super nice.

    No hot water in the showers. Sometimes no running water at all. Bathrooms were dirty and the rooms had a terrible smell. We asked for towels and we’re told the we had to give 5 dollars deposit and will receive the entire amount when we return the towels. We ended getting 3 dollars back for each towel with the excuse of ‘misunderstanding’. Not worth the price.

    Rooms/bathrooms had mold/mildew. Beds may have bugs as 2 of us woke up with bites all over the legs. Security came into my room w/o warning or explanation while I was sleeping(!!!); I told the front desk & they did nothing about it/not nice about it. My friends & I ended up checking into another hotel as a result (did not get a refund). This is definitely a party hostel & the property reflects it!
