My Personal Experience
Selina was nice, however a little more expensive than I think it was worth. I felt that the staff were a little disorganized. They were very friendly though and I appreciated the help I got with bringing my bags to and from my room! The breakfast was alright, however I think could use a little more flavor! I didn'y use the pool. It was a nice size though and the parties there were fun. I didn'y spend much time on the property during my 3 nights there. I was in a room with my own bathroom. The whole room was nice and a good size. The bed wasn't as comfortable as I would like and the pillows were also not great for my neck! Overall a great place, I just think maybe they should charge a little less for the type of room I booked.

The explanation of the place's services is not given. Just a key. I did not know that I deserved breakfast and not on all the activities

Maybe Never Again
As beautiful as the property is, our stay was somewhat disappointing. To start off, masks are not enforced at all here, most of the staff did not wear masks when near guests. Fine. We got a teepee room which was advertised with A/C. The teepee has little to no room for yourself, let alone luggage and has a fan, but no A/C, which is sweltering, especially if you are with another person. Everyday, the river near by begins to smell like feces, which infiltrates the teepee making it completely suffocating. Luckily, we voiced our concerns and they moved us to a deluxe room which was great. Upon a few hours in our new room, a front desk staff member (not a maid) opened our door and saw me naked. Don’t know why he was coming into our room, or why he did not knock. At the restaurant, the food was very inconsistent. I didn’t like my frozen banana bowl because it was warm and soupy. I asked for oatmeal instead, but they just brought me back a cold soupy banana bowl. I scheduled a spa day 2 days in advance. When I checked in to my appointment, it seemed as though they forgot they scheduled me. They called the masseuse because she was not on the premises, which led to my appointment being pushed to half an hour later. The masseuses was very nice and my massage was great. It seems as though the front desk functions off of personal laptops. To end things on a good note, the premises are nice. the tourist desk girl was very helpful and they offer fair prices. Maybe never again.

Great staff, location. Teepee room was adorable, comfortable & clean. The property has a fun, local character. Staff made it easy to book excursions. I met great people. I saw a toucan in the tree above my teepee. That was amazing!
