Friendly staff - amazing room (suite) which was larger than expected! Three different pools. Wish that the property had a pool table - they certainly have the space for it. No real ocean views - but great views of the jungle. Great spot in Manuel Antonio.

Good in theory, horrible suites
Let me start off by saying that I have stayed in many selinas, and overall the grounds of this hotel are pretty amazing. It has SO much promised and I really wanted it to be better. Sadly the room I received, which was insanely overpriced, was completely run down and imo inhabitable. If you’re going to charge that much money for a suite, I would expect a lot more. The hostal itself is in a great location, the coworking space was the best I’ve seen, but the activities / yoga classes were inconsistent (yoga was cancelled one day and we were never notified). Also this Selina has an incredibly young, party crowd, which was not for me. Most of the people staying there were 18-21 and were raging most of the night. Also I had ZERO WiFi in my room, which, if you’re going to market yourself as a place for digital nomads to work, was unacceptable imo. Also the staff was incredibly unhelpful and just generally seemed unhappy to be there. My room was so terrible that I ended up cancelling my reservation early and booking a hotel next door, which for the price, was a world away from Selina. If you’re over the age of 25 and have some standards, I would not recommend staying here.
