8/10 Very good

We spent a lovely three days at Selvista. The jungle experience is wonderful, the cabins comfortable and the backpacker crowd friendly. We enjoyed the yoga classes and all the wildlife around, mostly birds. Oh, and the dogs are the sweetest. We didn’t see the owners much, but the one time we did, they were kind enough to give us a lift into town. There are a couple of things which would have made the stay better: 1) Adding a cabinet in the bedrooms, so you have somewhere to put your clothes 2) Refilling the water in the rooms, as some of them, like ours, are quite far to lug a huge jug of water. 3) Offering a breakfast option for people who don’t eat eggs. There’s fruit, granola and yoghurt on the menu, but the first two mornings they only had the fruit, so I ended up buying cereal for my breakfast, even though breakfast is supposed to be included. Lastly with only one exception my friends and I found the staff really disinterested. There was one guy smoking in the kitchen late afternoon who barely said hello and continued looking at his phone the whole time I was there, even though there were just two of us. But all things considered, it’s a great place to stay.

Loved the house, the staff and the island. Megan was wonderful. The only issue I had with my stay was our valcano guide. He ripped us off on the fee.

Property is far from shops, restaurants etc. Yoga included in price. Breakfast wasn't as nice as expected but anyway I left maximum of points :) There could be some lights in the jungle to get there at night as it is freaky dark :)

Spider's place
We booked a 3 nights trip there that we will remember but not for the good reasons. You have to know that you dont really have front desk there. You are on your own and sometimes you can meet people that work there that can help you out. The lodging where you will stay are not noisy. it is hard to sleep since you can hear every sound from the jungle during the night. Also, we meet with many big spiders in our bedroom, not the ones you want to spend the night with.. Breakfast is minimum (coffee and fruits). Don't expect to be ready for all morning with that. Finally, the owner is not as friendly as you could expect to have with a place of that price. We spent 1 night instead of 3. We still paid for the 3 even if the place was not full.
