I choose this place because it was near to the beach. Room was very nice but had a very strong paint smell. The shower in the evening was always cold, the only moment you get hot water is early in the morning. The place is clean and had some animations in site. I had a great yoga session that I can really recommend. Parking is free of charge behind the main parking lot. Plus points: Hammocks Staff: the first girl was very expedite (in order to get back on her phone) and not very helpful. The other girls on the other days at the reception would help out more. I rented a surfboard that was not waxed or really prepared. The surf experience is better managed in Selina Jaco than in Tamarindo. Which was really pour in my opinion.

The Selina in Tamarindo and all of the staff there is simply amazing! From start to finish, my fiancée and I had such a fabulous stay here that we can’t wait to come back. The location, amenities and the activities here made Tamarindo as enjoyable as can be. Gotta shout out my man Andres, who’s such a kind upbeat host who truly embodies all of the awesomeness of Costa Rica. Everyone there, Oscar, Mariana and of course, the best surf instructor in town, Javier, make this place magical. Cheers to you all!

FOR BIKE RENTAL ONLY: We didn't stay here - we only rented bikes, so we can't review the hotel, but the grounds looked nice with lots of fitness activities going on and very close to the beach. But the bike rental service was great – Diego Hernandez was very helpful and super-nice to us. Rental is easy, just bring ID and the bike is yours to park either at your hotel or theirs. They provide a lock. We recommend riding on the beach at low tide – it's a pretty long stretch from Langosta to Tamarindo and loads of fun. We also rode up to Playa Langosta. Another good ride was on Hotel Pasatiempo's road going up the hill, turning right at the dead end, and riding around up to where they're building a new zipline tower – you can see the whole area from there. The bikes are in good condition, they're simple 1-speed beach cruisers with baskets. Rent these bikes and Tamarindo is yours for the taking!
