5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

We stayed a week a Hotel Mediterraneo and thoroughly enjoyed it. Warm showers, cold ac, Wi-Fi, kitchenette and the pool. A great place for a family. Gate is closed at night for security. Care taker was easily accessible when we needed something and always pleasant and willing to help. Close enought to drive to Jaco if you like the tourist/shopping atmoshpere. Great location for surfing at Jaco, Avellanas or Negra and walking distance to Little Hawaii.

I've been taking surf trips to Costa Rica for three years, and this was my fifth trip. Playa Avellanas is my favorite place to surf, and Surf Camp Mediterraneo is my new favorite place to stay!!! The pool and hotel grounds are kept very clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are also sparkling clean, and I love the fact that they have a fully equipped kitchen. The beach is just minutes from the hotel and is great for surfing, swimming, and watching beautiful Costa Rican sunsets. I highly recommend Surf Camp Mediterraneo!!!

Stayed here for a week and was very impressed. Stayed a few nights in the one bedroom room, and then also in the suite. The place is very very clean. The pool area was great and nice to come home after a day at the beach. The people who work there are very friendly and always make sure you are doing well. It is only a few minutes drive or walk to the beach (depends on what beach you go to). Will definitely stay there again when I go back.

The service was great, the room was very clean especially compared to other hotels I have been to. Considering how much jungle is around and that we were in Costa Rica, everything was spotless. I was expecting to rough it a bit, but did not have to. The kitchens were equipped with literally anything you would ever want and they were located by the pool which was beautiful. There was also a BBQ area that was available for guests, although I did not use it other guests did. I also appreciate the fast internet connection. The surf instructors I had for surf lessons were very patient and relayed their knowledge very well. I was able to rent a board which I wasnt entirely comfortable with but I was able to change it up no problem. All in all I had a great trip and will definately go back there with my girlfriends on our next holiday.
