    "If you are considering a dance or yoga retreat, and maybe learning to surf while you are in the endless summer of southern Morocco, then look no further! Abdel and Roberta are incredible hosts and I had one of the best weeks of my life at Wave and Dance. The belly dancing group loved Roberta's teaching style and both Roberta's and Leila's yoga classes were amazing. As a lifelong surfer, I was so impressed with the surf coaching side of the package and the fact that the team are in the water, physically helping you onto the waves. This is not the case with many other surf schools I observed in Tamraght, who throw people in the water by themselves. A big part of the stay was the food and it is a great mix of Roberta's Italian and Abdel's Moroccan dishes. They kindly took us to to get argan oil products from a nearby co-op, booked me into a Hammam, and arranged a very relaxing massage. I will be back for some surf guiding during the big wave season Oct - May one day and really can't recommend this venue enough. Great people, a family-run atmosphere, and so many good memories. Morocco is a country full of warm and welcoming people and Wave and Dance is a perfect place to begin your adventure."

    "Firstly, I would like to start with a massive thank you to Roberta and Abdul at Wave & Dance for welcoming me like one of the family and being very warm, lovely, and down to earth people. The pace of the retreat I went to was exactly the kind of vibe I was looking for (yoga and dance). I learned so much which I am no applying to my practice every day, it was healthy, friendly, and very relaxing. I'm already planning my next retreat there, so highly recommended for anyone thinking of going and Morocco beautiful ancient place."

    "I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with the guys at Wave & Dance. It was my first time travelling solo and also my first time in Morocco. From when I first enquired Roberta was very helpful and did everything so could to help you understand the process and how to about in Morocco. Her contact via Whatsapp was very good so whenever I needed help she was just an IM away. Which is vitally great for someone travelling anywhere abroad especially alone and young like myself."

    "Abdul is a great surf teacher in just two days had me riding some decent waves for someone who had never even touched a surfboard in my life. He was also very helpful and understanding."

    "The food was lovely and filling especially by the lovely nanny (cook) great healthy Moroccan food. And dinner is lovely eaten all together with everyone thAt stays in the beautiful clean house so there are lovely opportunities to share stories and life experiences with people also staying as guests and Roberta and Abdul the hosts themselves."

    "The daily yoga is so good taught by Roberta she's a lovely teacher telling you how everything is done and why. "

    "The rooftop lounge area and an outdoor shower are beautiful to enjoy during the day morning and evening as the temperatures there are so nice and warm not too stuffy."

    "I am definitely going to book another trip there. I loved it and have recommended it to some friends who envied my fun and chilling experience."

    "The hosts are super friendly, really took care of me. It was my first time in Morocco and I can honestly say they gave me the local experience, showing the best place for shopping and eating (they took me to a great fish restaurant in the port). The house is great with an amazing rooftop for evening chill out and drinks. It was a great base from which I was able to explore beautiful Morocco. There is a lot of surf schools but I rather feel like I‘m visiting old friends! You can‘t get bored with all the surfing, dancing and yoga! Strongly recommended!"

    "Wave and Dance is one of the best camps I have ever been to. I initially only booked for the yoga program but then after some encouragement, I decided to try surfing and was immediately hooked. There couldn't be a better combination for surfing in the day and then yoga to stretch out the sore muscles. The accommodation is very comfortable, cozy, and welcoming environment, the owners Abdel and Roberta do their utmost to create a super fun, unique, and family friendly vibe. The food is so delicious and fresh, I cannot even begin to describe. We arrived from Marrakech, tired and starving from our journey and as we walked onto the rooftop, the BBQ was sizzling away, the breads are fresh, and the table all set up with delicious fresh vegetables, I thought I had gone to heaven. Everyday we had different Moroccan cuisine so it was never boring. The yoga house is beautifully located in Tamraught with the beach only 10 minutess walk away so fter surfing if I would like to go for a walk on the beach it's easily accessible and even just to watch the amazing sunset. I have made lifelong friends during my stay at the camp and can't wait to meet up with them in the near future, we laughed so much the whole time, I was not sure if my stomach is sore from laughing or surfing. During the one day when the wind is too strong, Roberta organised some Hawaiian dancing lessons and a trip to the Thalasso spa which was so relaxing. Wave and Dance had certainly exceeded way higher than my expectations, good postural yoga classes, beautiful nature, excellent surf lessons, and everything perfectly organised. Personally I found the cost very reasonable and easily organised as Roberta was efficient with communication, this was quite important for me as I travlled solo. Lastly, I would like to thank Abdel and Abdo, the surf instructors for being so patient with me as I seem to be the most uncoordinated person ever but they actually manage to help me stand on the surf board. Thank you Abdo for taking such amazing photos throughout our entire stay and capturing our precious memories onto film. I highly recommend Wave and Dance and can't wait to return."

    "I can highly recommend this camp for everyone! If you want to surf, it is perfect. If you want to do yoga, it is amazing. If you want to learn Hawaiian or belly dance, this is the right spot. The rooms were all clean, intact, cozy, and furnished very well. Very big house, actually two houses, with balconies, and a wonderful roof terrace with an Hawaiian shower and possibility to barbecue. We had two surfing teachers for eight people which is actually one more teacher for the same number of people compared to other camps, so the success of surfing was quite high. By a debriefing after every surfing lesson you could see what you did right or wrong by reference to photos that were constantly taken during the lessons. They really show you your mistakes and after that everything works fine! I had also the yoga package, so after every surfing lesson we had a yoga session. If it was very comfortable outside we did it on the roof, what was amazing with the sun going down in the background! The hosts and teachers were tending you like their sheep, they organize everything, every little part. You get a lot of food at any time of the day, healthy food, excellent food by their amazing cook. Every time a different meal! Different bread, eggs, juices, coffee, tea, jam for breakfast, tasty sandwiches on the beach during the surf break, and a nice hot meal in the evening. If you had any health problems they were always looking for you. The atmosphere is very familiar there, actually I did not want to leave because it was like heaven. You can have fun with the hosts and other quests all the time. They also now have a lot of activities you can do near the camp or can recommend people and spots you want to visit. One day surfing was not possible for us because of a hard wind, but our hosts have foreseen this and came up with a few alternatives for this day. This was great. You didn't have to care for anything. We went to a very cozy Thalasso, had an extra and funny dance lesson. A trip to paradise valley was like paradise and spending an evening in an English pub with karaoke was one of the funniest evenings of my life. All in all I can recommend this camp with all my heart!"

    "This riad is absolutely amazing. At no more than five minutes to the beach, it is so close that you can hear the waves from your room and have a view of the ocean from the terrace, but is also very quiet and you can relax and rest after a long day surfing. The hosts are great. They are always there for you and you feel like you are at home. The food prepared is superb, real Moroccan food with fresh ingredients from the area around the village. One of the best travels I have ever done. I will be back there soon."

    "Hosts on top that made us discover Morocco from within and have shared with us their home and kitchen (local bio) and have adapted to my problems of intolerance to gluten and lactose. The proposed activities such as visiting the souk, Paradise valley, surfing, dancing and stretching leaves us memories in our mind, stars in the eyes, and warmth in the heart! Thank you again for these wonderful moments!"
