I've been here before but thought I'd offer another review. Its early August, the temp is about 92F at 10am and there are several clouds in the sky. Very beautiful location overlooking the Pacific. Water is in the 80s, the currents mild, and the waves are ok for surfing. In all, the location is spectacular. With the building of the... More

Hello, Your experience here will vary, depending upon: 1) What room you get, 2) The season you are here, and 3) the price you paid for what is promised (i.e. Groupon customers are discriminated against).

This hotel is on a great surf beach, rooms on the sand. Very enjoyable, very rustic and out of the way. Good pool, nice pool restaurant, laid back. Not fancy, no ac, but can ask for fans. Really enjoyed walking out to the sea every morning, water warm and lovely. Any negatives? Water not always available....flies around the restaurant which... More

I stayed at the Surf Colony with my family and we had a wonderful time. Service was inconsistent. Water and electricity were occasionally not available. This was in May 2013-so maybe they worked out some of the issues. Food was OK--drinks were good. Pool was not heated but hot tubs were wonderful. We still had a lot of fun though--right... More

We had a voucher for this resort, waited a long time to use it, wound up being there during a very hot spell. I wilt in hot weather; nevertheless, we had an enjoyable time. Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant varied from OK to good. Better to eat in town unless you just don't want to leave the complex.... More

I'm not going to bother posting pictures as they would just be the same thing everyone else has on here. I'm also going to break tradition from my other reviews and list just pros and cons as it's the easiest way to describe. PROS Beautiful scenery, right on the beach (if you have a beachfront unit, which I highly recommend)... More

We have taken advantage of Groupon twice on week long stays here. Both times we planned on having our stay coincide with Peter Buck's January Rock Festival. From have a thatched cottage right on the beach, to happy hour at the Hacienda, to spectacular sunrises and sunsets, to lounging at the beautiful pool bar, to Baja Beans wonderful courtyard experience...

A bit out of the way but easy to find, the Surf Colony gives you easy access to the surf. We stayed in a two bedroom unit, #16. Be advised that the two bedroom units will only sleep 4 people. There were five of us and one person had to sleep on an uncomfortable couch. I did ask at the... More

My husband and I visited in late-May. The weather was beautiful (the rest of the region is 90-100 degrees all day and sticky and humid, while it is in the 80s here during the day and 70s at night). The surfing was great. (Granted, that’s coming from two people who surfed for the first time here, but we had a... More

Is this a 4 star resort? No, but that doesn't make it bad. We just got back from a three night stay and totally enjoyed ourselves. Some of the complaints that people had are legitimate, but won't negatively impact your trip in the least! Yes, the sheets and towels could be of higher quality and newer, but we had plenty... More
