I can't say enough good things about Oasis. Everyone that works at Oasis is super helpful and kind; making each day special. The surf lessons are top notch--the best I've ever had. Cris, the head surf instructor, took the time to learn about my past surfing experience and understand what my goals were; providing excellent feedback to me after every ride and making it a very fun experience for me. The group photo analysis was super helpful and you get to keep the photos! I took the intensive Spanish lessons, which provides two 1.5 hour lessons each day. Having two different teachers is awesome because you learn in a different way from each one. Romi and Angie were simply awesome and very patient with me as I struggled through the lessons. They are both committed to helping you learn the language with cultural context. The La Barca Surf House is a really nice place with just the right amount of socializing and privacy. The owners' home is part of the surf house and you feel like they are sharing their home with you. The excursions and fitness classes are terrific. Several times during my stay there were ad hoc activities such as movie night on the beach and making food together. I fell in love with Oasis and Oaxaca and will be going back annually.

We just came back from a trip to Puerto Escondido and stayed at La Barca for two nights. Honestly wish we could have booked more nights here! The entire place is so clean and beautiful. The pool was nice and fresh with a common area right next to it with a kitchen and dining area. We had one of the smaller rooms that don't have a kitchen included so had to use this to prepare a couple of meals. The WiFi worked 100% the entire time and we had no problems with water or anything else. Our room did not include AC but with the fan it was definitely a lot fresher than other places we stayed at in Puerto Escondido. The place is perfectly located as there is a street just two blocks away filled with restaurants, stores, bars and just a short walk away from Playa Carrizalillo. You will want to visit that beach especially if you want to learn how to surf. I recommend Oasis Surf School as it is located just a few block away. The owners personally introduced themselves to us when we arrived and made us feel more than welcome to be there. I definitely will be coming back here again one day soon.

We loved everything about La Barca Surf House. The family that owns La Barca lives on sight and was always there to make sure our stay was wonderful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I loved the staff as well. We were walking distance from the beach, restaurants, taxi rides, everything you could want plus more. I loved how people would gather at the pool after a day on the beach for a nice swim and conversation. I'm searching dates for us to go back for another stay at La Barca Surf House.

We felt like we were part of an extended family! The family who runs the surf house is warm and friendly, helpful and kind! We loved our stay so much~ our room was peaceful and comfortable. The only negative is you will NOT want to ever leave this wonderful place!!! Had an amazing time and will absolutely be back!

La Barca offers a wide range of rooms/suites depending on what you need. I stayed in three different rooms, and all were clean with private bathrooms and mini fridges. Some rooms have full kitchens, patios/balconies, and even more than one bedroom. There is a large outdoor kitchen/dining area next to the pool, which is really nice for longer stays, if you want to cook. It also helps you to meet other guests, and allows for a convenient place to hangout in the evenings. The owners (Sol and Roger) were very kind and accommodating. Overall, I highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Puerto Escondido. I can't wait to visit again!
