10/10 Exceptional

Cool spot to meet people!
The hotel is nice, there is some good and some less good: + Excellent service by John at the bar! You must go see him for cocktails & local recommendations! + Daily cleaning was impeccable. + Room layout on 2 floors is pretty cool + Three balconies to fit your different moods + Amenities are nice + Great to have the hotel side and dorm options as you will meet a lot of different people + On-site food option is very decent + Mascot (pig) going around the property - Multiple power outages - Hotel rooms are not soundproof - Yoga mats are to be changed / deep washed (very smelly) - You will need a car to get to the beach

8/10 Very good

This place was good. Great for single travelers in my opinion. It is further from the beach and town in my opinion, I wasn't expecting this. Renting an ATV is definitely the way to get around. This hotel is very americanized and reminds me of Hawaii rather than Costa Rica.

2/10 Poor

Not worth it
Stayed here for 3 nights after staying closer to the beach. Overall this place is brutal, there is loud music until late in the night on a variety of nights and trucks on the road early in the morning. Rooms were not well maintained, there were nails sticking out of the stairs and hardware missing from the wall for the drapes. The staff was not helpful or very friendly. They have advanced check in but when you show up you have to line up at 3pm where it took another 30 minutes to get checked in so a waste of time. When we were leaving they wouldn’t give us an additional 30 minutes from check out without charging even though the check in was late. Wish I had better news.

6/10 Good

The ONLY reason I'm leaving a less than glowing review is was the vehicular noise. Highway 160 hugs the property line and the traffic (dirt bikes and trucks) is unbearably loud at 5:30am. I know that Selina can't do anything about this, but letting people know before booking would be very considerate. You will NOT be sleeping past 5:30am - even with the ear plugs they provide. Other than that, I had a lovely time.

Gorgeous place, needs service improvement
The hotel is gorgeous, just like the pictures present it. There’s always people around at all times and especially in the evenings for the parties. Our room was nice, spacious and clean and although it was right at the main street it got quiet throughout the night so we were able to sleep well. The food we had at the restaurant was good, as well as the drinks. It’s not close to the beach but there’s tuk tuk service in Nosara which doesn’t make it problematic. What disappointed us was the personnel, we didn’t experience friendliness nor willingness to help. Could be because of the high guest rotation, however it took a lot from the overall experience and we see that as an important point to improve - especially considering we payed almost 300€/night.

10/10 Exceptional

I loved it. It's a merge between a hostel (which I can only take so long) and a hotel (which I can also only take so long). You get parties, but nothing too late. A bar, option for food all day, a "grab and go" area which is great, but needs more candy options :). The pools are lovely. You can feel at home solo, solo looking to talk to people or looking to bring friends and make friends. Super dog friendly. Staff is awesome. Eddie, is a rockstar. I called while lost, alone and confused as heck with little reception. I got myself more lost somehow and had to call back again. He was kind, patient with me and caring! He also helped upon arrival and during my stay. I enjoyed it so much Im actually going back this week. One NOTE!!! IF YOU ARE DRIVING- From the north do not take the coastal way if it's even maybe rained. I had to go back north after two hours because of a flood on the road. Just a heads up!
