I had a father son surf trip this summer that was a blast! Pako and the rest of the instructors & staff at WRSC were terrific and everyday was a new adventure. We stayed at another hotel that they have a partnership with (Daria Resort) and the accommodations were perfect. I hope to make this a yearly trip- Benji-Jack

I have been going to WRSC since 2006 and have found that they continually provide great service. I am an advanced surfer and always love the trip to Witches and Ollies. The guides always try to put on the best waves and we have never been disappointed. David and Chilo are the best. I was able to bring my son... More

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I had always wanted to learn how to surf and for several years prior to finding Witch's Rock I did a lot of searching on the Internet to find a place to learn. I did not want to just travel somewhere and sign up for lessons while on vacation, I wanted surfing to be my vacation... More

It is a great place to go surf and enjoy the ocean. The staff and instructors are all friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The guests are all surfers (or on their way to becoming surfers), some with spouses and children along. Everyone seems to have a similar approach to life and thoroughly enjoy each other.... More

We were looking for the ultimate surf experience and this was it. We spent 7 days here and had surf lessons everyday. This was definitely an active vacation. The rooms are very rustic and simple ( bring towels/wash cloths) as a true surf camp should be. Our surf instructors were Maria, Axel and J. Luis...all fantastic. We spent the majority... More

This place is great! We took 2 surfing lessons here and absolutely loved it. This was our first time ever to take lessons and Maria couldn't have been a better fit. She was a great teacher and extremely sweet. The bar on the beach was a fun laid back place to finish up or start our day.
