PSSR exceeded my expectations on every level. I was a little nervous since this was my first time traveling solo, but my entire stay went flawlessly. Christian and Colin were always checking in to see if I needed anything. Airport transfer to/from the resort was super easy. The waves were great and just steps from the resort. The food was...

Took a surf trip there in June 2016 with two friends. Apon arrival we were greeted at the airport from there on the way to the house which is about an hour and half from the airport. Once we arrived the house it was more than what we needed, several rooms with more being added. A/C in rooms worked great...

First of all let me say that this was the most perfect surf trip for our group of 4 surfers. We are all experienced surfers and knew that the breaks here were not for beginners. The surf was consistently good right out front at Shiftys and Shacks, or we could walk less than 10 minutes north to Miramar point or...

So I decided I wanted to go on a surfing trip for my birthday and did not want your typical commercialized surf resort and thought this place was perfect. We were promptly picked up at the airport by Yassir. Yassir was a very nice gentleman who did not speak English and when we got pulled over by the street police...

Hi Jen. Thanks for your honesty and I apologize how you felt at the end of your trip. I thought i was always there to help you guys out and go surf if you had any questions. I thought the biggest issue where the waves were to large and that kept you from being in the water constantly. The only...

I booked this trip based on reading reviews written about the previous owners. But the place has been sold and the new owners, Colin and Christian, two young Americans, are currently developing the place and working out the kinks. First off, the views and location are incredible...we went during the low surf season, February 2016, and stayed 8 nights as...

This was my second trip to Nicaragua and I've got to say....Christian and Colin really know how to run this resort. PSSR delivered everything they advertised: close to the surf, amazing food, and amazing accommodations. Their support staff (Chelle, the chefs, and the locals) really make you feel at home. Keep up the great work, PSSR!

I just returned from a two week long trip to Nicaragua. I stayed the first week at pssr. What a great place they have!
