We had a wonderful week stay at Surfside. Whilst we only had a few minor issues, we didn't have more dramtic issues including theft of money by someone known to the resort. The Surfside buildings whilst in a reasonable condition, their amenities are a let down. Yes it is literally on the coast, this means expect sand everywhere! The pool... More

Came here for our Honeymoon. Had a vila with a plunge pool for a week and we loved it. Spent plenty of time on the comfy chairs out by the pool. Next door at breakers restaurant was fantastic food. We even cooked a couple of meals on the bbq which was really handy. We had a leak in the bathroom... More

Had a great stay at Surfside, and for anyone travelling in a group or families I think is ideal spot. We had room with a pool and really enjoyed it. Could BBQ, swim and relax in a great outdoor space. Love the fact that it is self contained, the only small down side was that the pots and pans were... More

Pros: - great location/view (right in front of small beach, short walk away from restaurant, buses are readily available) - staff were helpful and friendly - fast to fix small issues (broken shower head, gas tank replacements) Cons: - back doors/windows are slats so there are no fly screens, makes it easy for bugs to get in. It is a... More

I have since had an overhaul on the water heater in the unit you stayed in and we are always looking at ways to better improve our response time to problems... More

What a wonderful villa! It met all our expectations. The staff were helpful and friendly at all times, sorting out any issues (all minor) immediately. They advised us on getting around the island and told us what to expect. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The pool was kept spotless. The view was awesome! I would recommend this to...

Surf was on our mind for this trip and with Pango Beach right at your front door step - with both left and right breaks. We found the staff wonderful and so helpful with our needs (which included organising a birthday cake for our son whilst we were there). We spent most days next door at Beachhouse Cafe (which have...

We have just returned from 10 relaxing days at Surfside. The service received from the staff was excellent. Our travel agent had sold us something quite different to what we expected - but the staff could not have done enough to overcome this.
