8/10 Very good

Great location if you can handle the loud music
If you are in Montanita to party, Selina is your place. The location in close to everything and the service from staff was actually very good. They have daily events and keep you updated. The downside to Selina is also the location. The clubs on both sides play loud music with heavy bass that reverberates through walls until 4am. Even wearing headphones playing white noise, it was near impossible to sleep until the music stopped at 4am.

2/10 Poor

The room had a terrible smell, the floor was dirty and sticky, there was no soap in the bathroom. The toilet seat was all scuffed and needed and update asap. The bathroom curtains and door were all splattered with stains, there was no hot water and the noise from the nearby club was extremely loud. I would expect a lot more for the priced that we paid.
