Had heard really good things about casa oro so was super disappointed with our experience. We stayed there 4 nights, our room was not cleaned once. The bin in the bathroom was overflowing, the bath may grotty and the curtain rail broke on the first night. No towels available and no locks on dorms. Sleeping was ok, powerful fans did... More

We did not stay here, so this review is entirely for Alfredo the surf instructor. Alfredo was a fantastic teacher who has a way of making his explanations really stick with you. I've only been surfing a handful of times, but his explanations of how to stand up, posture, catching the right wave, etc. went miles beyond what I'd learned... More

We stayed here for 2 nights when there was a popular music festival on which we stumbled on by chance. San Juan Del Sur was a destination we wanted to go and the guide book had mentioned Casa Oro which is where we headed to and were not disappointed. I'm not so sure about the staff being rude from previous... More

I didn't stay at casa oro but spent about 1.5 weeks learning to surf with them. The surf teacher Alfredo was fantastic, explained everything really well and was very approachable and welcoming. I really felt like I advanced well in the 1.5 weeks and would definitely recommend the surf class here for anyone looking to learn how to surf in... More

The beds were comfy and rooms air conditioned, the breakfast is limited and the trips are way expensive compared to other tour companies. Its in a perfect location and there is a roof top which was lovely to relax in. My main problem with this place is i feel its too expensive for what you get, also the staff are... More

I didn't stay here as you can't book in advance, but I walked up to check if they have a bed left. After being told its full, I said OK and thanks and asked for directions to another big hostel. The lady said she didn't know and went back to her computer. This is a tiny town, everyone knows where... More

We stayed at Casa Oro for one night between Christmas and New Years and it was great. The reason our stay was so short was it was completely booked up for two weeks. It was a touch expensive due to it being the highest of high season, but our private room was spotless, comfortable and the price included a delicious... More

Casa Oro was a great hostel overall. Price was right and the breakfast every morning was fabulous. The bar was great and I loved lounging in the hammocks in the afternoon breeze. The local staff were nice, but could work on their customer service. The only downfall was that they had no where to store bags after checkout. They ended... More

We stumbled across these guys. We wanted to surf at Maderas. They have a great priced option. Round trip transportation to and from Maderas and a surfboard rental for $10USD TOTAL per person. The surfboards are a bit rough but are fine and the transportation is in the back of a truck / van. That was a bit rough as... More
