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.

    I had a great stay at Salina Tamarindo. The location was perfect, just by the beach. The atmosphere was great and I had a great sleep in my room! The food was also lovely and the manager in particular was very friendly and helpful :)

    Great hostel great location 2 minute walk to the beach. Could use a mirror in the bathroom of my dorm. Not like other selina's I have stayed at where they come to clean your room they fix up your bed. Was only planning to stay 2 night but ended up staying 4. Awesome place awesome staff and great enviroment.

    Overall a good hostel. Close to the beach. Location is great. Cleanliness is good. Staff was great always. Atmosphere - lacking, BUT that’s probably cause it’s covid season right now. So there isn’t many backpackers anyways. They seemed to be doing a ton of work on the place to fix it up during this time tho since it’s slow. The kitchen area was always dead or seemed closed. Once again could be the covid season or that they were remodeling. Overall a good stay tho.

    Awesome location near the beach, restaurants and bars! More of a party atmosphere. The restaurant and bar at the hostel were quite expensive compared to other restaurants around. Staff were helpful. Great surf lessons done at the hostel! Rooms were ok, beds were kinda uncomfortable compared to other Selinas and bathrooms very updated. But for the location I would recommend!!

    Another great Selina hostel. Close to the beach. The reception is pretty slow. Bar is expensive as usual but you can buy alcohol at the supermarket and go full send potato in your room. The pool is a nice place to chill and to start drinking for Harambe. The AC in the room was nice, it made me feel like I was in my igloo with my pet moose back home in Canada! Sunset at the beach is awesome, especially for photobombing those instagram models taking pictures. Merci Paul.

    Selina’ safe always reliable because the staff as always really friendly and usually quite busy! This one is the same with a good location etc but I always feel like the beds and rooms are too pricey for what you get in return

    Very Good

    Good spot for a covid vacation. I booked a private room/bathroom. All common spaces except for the kitchen were open air. There was a hot water problem in my bathroom, but I got a discount upon checkout . I had surf lessons with Javi and he was great! The pool was fun, nothing was crowded. I used the kitchen everyday and just kept my mask on. The kitchen and the tables outside weren't cleaned regularly. Other guests didn't wear masks in kitchen which was annoying. I would stay here again.

    Perfect location, couldn’t be closer to the beach! The pool was amazing. The food at the restaurant was good! The common kitchen was not that great but acceptable. The reason I gave a bad rating for security is because there was 4 of us in our room and on our last night the only guy in the room went up my friends shorts while she was asleep. We told the staff and they said they’d kick him out, but didn’t end up doing anything. Very disappointed in the way the staff handled the situation.

    This is not the nicest Selina. The room was cramped and bathroom was very dirty. It really was not a higher end hostel like other Selinas. I ended up moving to Casa Aura
