My girlfriend and I arrive at Kalon as surf beginners, we stay for a week in June. The first thing we notice was their friendly staff, offering us beverages or anything they have in that beautiful beach hotel. When we got to the rooms we were very pleased with the modern beachy touches in the decoration, the bed was incredibly... More

I've been to Kalon Surf four times and it a fantastic place to learn to surf and stay. Beautiful green waves to surf for hours on, fantastic surf coaches, Roberto, Henry, and Andries assisting in your surfing goals. Marcela with her hospitality and Esmeralda with her outstanding gourmet meals. I cannot stress enough on what a beautiful and magnificent place... More

Its hard to describe an experience that was so amazing and life changing in a few words (let alone any). Kalon is truly one of the best trips you could ever do! A week spent at this magical little place will soothe your mind and give your body exactly what it wants... rest, sun, exercise, sea water, delicious food accompanied... More

I spent a week at Kalon and I am disappointed to write that it did not meet my expectations, nor would I recommend this trip to anyone, especially for the price. These are the quick facts. - There is no air conditioning. - The house is located 25 minutes from the beach. That means ~1hr in the car each day.... More

This place is awesome! The people here are awesome! Did not want to leave. By the time your stay here is at an end, you will have the confidence to stand up on a surf board for the rest of your life. Oh and the waterfall near by was amazing! Best trip ever!

Several years ago, I decided I wanted a surf vacation, so I looked at some websites and wrote a few emails. The first (and fastest) reply came from Marcela at Kalon Surf. That level of service and professionalism is one of many reasons I've visited Kalon six times now. Each time I come back, I can count on two things.... More

We landed an hour late into San Jose but the airport was easy to navigate. Roberto was waiting for us with a couple other guests. He loaded us up in the Kalon Toyota Land Cruiser Prada which is a very comfortable and well maintained vehicle. The drive was as advertised between 2 ½ and 3 hours and was a nice... More

This Place and all the staff and owners are top notch. It takes a lot of work, effort and energy to bring the perfect surf trip to us and you. Having just done a week here made me realize what a bargain it really is. It only seems expensive until you go through it. You are treated like a friend... More
