    Review by Mj Kinnear from United Kingdom

    CONS Cons: These aren't negative, just things you might want to bear in mind. The place is quite small so in certain rooms you might hear noises from the adjacent living room. The evening meal is the bigger meal, so you have to adapt to a smaller lunch, ask for a bigger packed lunch or plan differently! (I eat a lot) I didn't like not being able to have a longer holiday!

    PROS Pros: I enjoyed having a balanced day and week set out for us. Doing other activities helps support your body in surfing. The trip to Xe's Yoni surfboard place was great. I really enjoyed being in an international community of people who love the outdoors, good food and surfing. The people were all nice and friendly and there's a real community who want you to enjoy and get better at surfing - especially Carlos and his van! It felt really inclusive. There's also access to so many different beaches and waves. And the beach by the place is so long, you can run or walk there at certain times of the day and not see many people. The accommodation is neat and clean. It's a gift to look through the window to check the surf conditions! Staff are often in the place hanging out so you can ask them for things if you need. They are really responsive.
