We have just returned from the BEST holiday of our lives since our little boy came along! It was just what the doctor ordered - the bungalows are spacious and beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, plus the AC works a treat! We watched hummingbirds, gorgeous red squirrels and amazing lizards from our Balcony which felt as though we were perched...

The huts are exactly as depicted, clean and comfortable. Plenty of warm water for showers. Blue Surf Sanctuary will place a large drinking water station into your room for just 10$. The pool is nice for children or for a quick dip after coming from the ocean. The kitchen is adequately equipped for real cooking and very clean. Salt, pepper,...

Blue Surf is an amazing place to meet people, relax and get some surf in. Surf coach Toro is one of the highlights of staying here. If you want to learn or improve your surfing skills Toro will make it happen. He is patient, very knowledgeable and safety conscious. I cannot say enough about the surf instruction you will get...

We first discovered the area on a surf camp package in early November 2014. The rainy season was ending and the town was a bit quiet. The bungalow we stayed in at Blue Surf Sanctuary was spacious and the grounds and pool were beautiful. We spent hours there reading, napping and relaxing after a morning surf and breakfast. Our package...

If you're looking to stay at Blue Surf, look no further. My fiancé and I recently stayed at Blue Surf Sanctuary for a birthday/surf getaway. We purchased a package with Blue Surf and I was amazed at how much came with it! Daily breakfast and surfing, yoga lessons, zip lining, ATV/waterfall tour, a massage and we even added a snorkeling...

Perfect relaxation/honeymoon location!!!!! Let me just start with the staff because they were phenomenal and helped coordinate anything we needed (from surf lessons, cab rides, to best dinner spots in town). Extremely quick responding to emails.They were by far the best staff at any place I have ever stayed at. Everything was so lush and beautiful; truly a gem in...

The grounds are beautiful, rooms are clean and comfortable, and the work staff is very friendly, but there were a few issues : Although they clame to be a boutique hotel, they are not. It is a boutique hostel. And for a hostel the rates are ridiculously overprized. The bungalows back up right up to the road and noise from...

We had the great fortune of having Toro and Danny surf with us for the week we were in Costa Rica. My two boys, age 9 and 11, really looked up to them as mentors...both Toro and Danny shared their own experiences of surfing growing up and as adults, which helped them to understand the passion of surfing and how...

We stayed in Armonia lodge for 1 week to celebrate my birthday and get some waves in a stunning location. We were not dissapointed. If anything we were surprised at the high quality of the accommodation, the attentiveness and personal nature of the staff as well the location.
