Good situation in front of the wave. Nice staff. Really well decorated area w/ a lot of plants. 2 types of beach front rooms. Ask for the ones directly in front of the ocean. The others are a bit small but are More quiet.

The full package: a beautiful place overlooking an impressive surf break and maintained by amazing people who know what it takes to let go and enjoy the life on your perfect beach. Bring your board(s) and let the Miramar people do their thing. You love it!

Quality location for surf, grounds were extremely well kept with beautiful views of the ocean and sunset. Food was excellent. Rooms were very well kept. As a whole, the staff was very knowledgeable and nice. One of the staff members needs a little bit of work with their customer service, but I won't hold it against them. Would definitely go...

Miramar was the 2nd stop on our Nicaragua surf trip. We decided to stay here because we saw pictures of the skate ramp and we were not disappointed. One of the owners, Raf, skated with us multiple evenings. The ramp had a lot of character and provided hours of fun in between surf sessions. Not a skater? Miramar is still...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Miramar Surf Camp consists of 3 individuals lodging areas, spread over a half acre beachfront property. We have 13 fully equipped A/C rooms nestled throughout the gardens which overlook the beautiful point break out front. There is lots of parking, a surf front pool, oceanfront restaurant area, yoga/training gym, game area, surf TV room, hammock hangout area and surf front living room! We are strategically positioned right in front of one of the best reef breaks of Nicaragua, in a place blessed by consistent waves and offshore winds all day. There are FIVE breaks within a 200 metre walk, to give you lots of opportunity to score uncrowded waves. It's not necessary have a car to surf in our area, in addition to the many waves within walking distance, we also have our own boat that provides daily shuttles to surf Puerto Sandino, El Transito, Salinas or other secret spots. This property is located in Punta Miramar. This beautiful left hander breaks over a rock reef bottom but still has a deep takeoff. The wave can be heavy with some nice barrel sections that flow into a softer section before it hits the inside and throws again. Provides long rides on the better days. Our hotel is located near Pipes. A-Frame Beach Break with a flat reef on the lefts. This wave has long lefts and rights and will barrel on most swells and works well on all tides.This property is also located near Puerto Sandino. This is the most popular spot in the area. An offshore break with boat access only. A very long left over a sand bar with rocks on the inside. This wave can be very fast and hollow at times and provide long rides. Also know as "freight trains" or "La Barra" works on low tide and the boats leave in front of Miramar Surf Camp. In addition to solid surf, the property has an oceanfront restaurant and small bar for guests to enjoy. Sitting atop the point, you can enjoy fresh burgers, fish, salads and the plate of the day whilst watching your friends get barrelled out front. We have a selection of local beers, fresh juices and sodas to sip on to keep yourself feeling hydrated in the blistering heat. Or take a couple to our oceanfront pool while you keep cool. For all the non-surfers, we have an on-site training area where you can enjoy yoga, jiujitsu or your own routine. We can arrange a variety of interesting activities such as horseback riding, paddle boarding, volcano treks or a guided visit to nearby colonial city Leon to enriched your vacation. We hope to see you soon! ... more   less
