This place is overpriced: $95 per person for a 10 minute boat ride to the nearby surf breaks is ridiculous (it includes a "surf guide", which in reality is less of a guide than just another surfer in the water, which matters if you have beginners in your group). The food is too expensive for its quality, and vegetarians need... More

Waidroka was just what our family needed. My husband surfed, the kids paddle boarded and swam, I relaxed. Add in snorkelling and kayaking. The staff were amazing...kind, caring, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. What more could you want?

My family and I spent a week at Waidroka in June. The diving here is simply spectacular, with abundant fish life both large and small, a wonderful array of soft and hard corals and wreck diving too!

I stayed four days at Waidroka while my boyfriend surfed. The staff was amazing--very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. I enjoyed the cozy dinners with other guests and some of the staff, conversing and learning of other places. However, I would not recommend if you're not an advanced surfer or a diver. These waves are not for intermediate-beginner surfers. If you... More

Waidroka is a friendly, fun resort that is small enough to feel intimate. I was there for a week recently for my wreck diver certification. Tristin and Brooke were great dive masters and I learned a lot about sunken ships. Tristin also had some great ideas for further trips. The shark dive was also fun and I now feel I... More

We spent a fabulous week at Waidroka - 5 days diving and a couple of days just chilling around the resort.
