I went over the summer of 2019 for a week and was shocked by the friendliness of the staff and the great teaching ability of everyone there. I especially enjoyed the patience and helpfulness that came from Brent. He went above and beyond to help me get up on a board and I would for sure go back.
I spent a week at Beach Break and had an amazing time! John and Carla are the sweetest, always there to answer questions and help. Always making sure we were having a great Time!The hôtel is super clean, and right on the Beach, breakfast are delicious. I had never surf before, and learned soooo much in a week, surf classes were awesome with Brent and Punky!! Brent knows everything about surfing and he is an EXCELLENT teacher (he could make a blind horse surf!!!) that’s how good he is!! Highly recommend this place, I m already planning to go back soon
We had a great time at Beach Break with our kids (7 & 9). The accommodations are simple, the hotel is right on the beach, surf board rentals steps away, jiu Jitsu and fitness studio on site, pool overlooking the beach, and restaurant on the property. There is also a bakery and Cafe around the corner as well as a mini market and surf shop. We could walk to a waterfall and see and hear the howler monkeys. The beach was a couple miles wide with beautiful rocky cliffs and estuaries for the kids to play in. The kids took surf lessons with Gustavo who was amazing with them and they had so much fun and learned so much in a short amount of time. He was really good to mix play and surf to make it fun. We took lessons with Brent who is the main instructor and also really amazing and technical. He knows everything about boards and was simple and precise with his instructions which made it easy to put into practice. My husband rode a few different short boards and had a great time and I rode a retro nose rider which I’m really grateful he suggested I try because it is sooooo much fun! John the manager was really great to check in to make sure we were having a good time and he also runs the Jiu jitsu studio. The restaurant on site had really good food and drinks and the staff was super friendly. Everyone that works there that we met was really great. Grateful for our time there. …
This really is the best surf camp you could ever go to. The surf break right in front. The beach is uncrowded and beautiful and the water is warm. The restaurant serves great food. But most importantly, the owner has created a very friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. Brent and Gustavo are EXCELLENT instructors and their use of video greatly helped all those learning to surf. More importantly, it was relaxing and fun being out in the water with them. John runs a great camp and is extremely personable (in addition to teaching Jiu Jitsu). I rarely return to travel destinations but am hoping to make another visit to Playa Venao Soon.
The hotel has beautiful views and a great restaurant and common kitchen. Surf lessons were excellent and as a complete beginner I got to standing up on the board multiple times. There is also a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy here with daily classes taught by BJJ black belt John Boyle. Great atmosphere with lots of activities!
