When you are driving along the dirt road to the Cerritos Surf Colony, there is a sign advertising another place "Glamour Camping"...to be honest this is what Cerritos Surf Colony felt like. Glamour camping...which isn't a bad thing..as long as you are prepared for it. We purchased a groupon like many other people did. We had no problems whatsoever with... More

We purchased a groupon like deal for the Cerritos Surf Colony. I have to say thank god that we didn't pay the regular rate for this place! We are not high maintenance people at all but this place is basically glorified camping on the beach. The road to get there was long, construction put us through a scary part of... More

First of all, make sure you have a rental so you can escape..You know it will be hot so be forewarned..no A/C in any of the rooms so cooling off will be difficult because since it is a surfing area, the strong waves, steep drop-off of the beach and dangerous undertows will prevent you and especially kids from doing much...

The piece of land this is on, and the views are amazing. It is SO hot in the back bedrooms because you cannot open a window. When we arrived they were out of fans so we spent $40 for one in Cabo and this helped. The beds are incredibly uncomfortable- basically like a box spring. The tile work is amazing.... More

I had utilized a Groupon for this vacation and read all the prior reviews (thank you everybody) and went in with tepid expectations. We had a 2 br/2 ba oceanfront front villa (#2). The views could not be beat. Waking upto the Pacific ocean with an unobstructed view was well worth the price we paid. The resort was moderately occupied... More

We loved this place but there are some hiccups. We purchased the coupons(3) back in December 2011. Rent a car as it is about 1 hours from the SJD airport. We stopped at Walmart and stocked up on food, beer, fans, toilet paper and paper towels, cleaner, coffee...just some tips that you may not think of. Bug spray for outside... More

First I want to say that the Cerritos Surf Colony is a very beautiful location and the villas are very nice. The décor is great with beautiful tile work in the bathroom/showers. The kitchen in the 2 bedroom villa was sufficient with decent size refrigerator. The view is amazing with the waves crashing in front and the Hacienda on the... More

I would like to share my experience and express a word of caution for those intending to buy internet discount coupons for Cerritos.
