Just spent 5 days at the surf lodge. Excellent experience. Mike's team is top notch. They have every aspect of a surf trip down to a science. Friendly, efficient, professional, cool, mellow, experts. The food is excellent. The lodge is spotless and very comfortable. The setup is ideal... their boats take you wherever it is breaking best for every session,... More

Dale's Casita is about 5 steps from the pacific ocean which can be seen from the windows night and day. The property has a functional kitchen and very nice bathrooms. There are beAutiful flowers, brickwork and a secure fence that keep the wild horses and other livestock from interfering! What a magical place Dale has created for travelers. We had... More

Spent 5 days surfing at Dale Dagger's in July. The boats are literally steps in front of the lodge and can take you anywhere you want to surf along the coast. The guides, captain and staff were outstanding at their jobs and great company as well. I can't imagine a more convenient and enjoyable way to surf this part of... More

We stayed at Dales for almost two weeks. We had a blast staying here. It was right next to the beach, near all the surf spots, Dale and Becca were so kind and accommodating. Community Kitchen, clean bath rooms, laundry, daily cleaning service, relaxing hammocks/reading area. This place seems to attract really kind and laid back people. The dorm (where... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. It's located right on the beach, and within walking distance to surf spots. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice clean. And overall the place has a lovely vibe. They also have wifi.

Stayed here 4 times. Great surf experience. 2 boats trips per day to the very best surf stops. Walter ( Mr. boogie woogie ) is an awesome boat captain. Maria and Darlene made sure that the place was clean and the meals were excellent. After returning from a full day of surf Kassidy greeted us with fronzen rum punch. Her... More

The lodge was always clean, had a very friendly atmosphere and loaded with charm! The people were all very helpful and friendly too! Even the village people were friendly always giving a happy "Hola!" when you passed. The food was fantastic and the best part... right on the beach with a phenomenal view , comfy hammocks, and an extremely relaxing... More

We stayed at "Kassidy's Hotel" for 5 days as part of a Softball Sister Cities and Breast Cancer Awareness project. The lodge is lovely, right on the beach so you can have morning coffee watching the fishing boats come in, with a rustic feel but really all the comforts you need: clean rooms, good food, internet as long as the...

Okay, so a group of 18 women come to visit Playa Gigante to bring Breast Cancer Awareness and play softball in the middle of winter in Oregon. So, paradise awaits you. Kassidy and Ben are the epitome of hospitality! Their place is clean, well kept and fully stocked with wonderful amenities like cold water, beer and soda! They are Eco-conscious... More

Away from the crowds and with off-the-charts hosts. Not only were we surfing all day, but also landed enough fish to feed a village (ok a small village). Kassidy and Ben, among others, put on a great trip for us and were extremely accommodating with recommendations and anything else. Plus, they work closely with the locals, with Walter and his...
