Very nice hotel even if you don't surf. Just a great spot to chill out and disconnect for a bit (literally, because there is no Wifi). Food is excellent, beautiful beach,I recommend staying there if you are thinking of going to the beach and if you surf it's a huge bonus!

Isamel the manager couldn't have done more to help us! From boat trips to dinner to a ride to our next stop. Can't recommend the surf house enough, and to the people... More

I had an amazing time at Paredon Surf House, loved the chilled vibe and good food and the location right on the beach is perfect. Everything was well organized, from the airport pick up to the check-in and surf classes. Especially loved the family-style dinners. It's the perfect place to just relax and unwind, such a little piece of paradise!... More

We stayed in a Seaview Suite which we felt was the best accommodation option at the Surf House. There is something to be said for having a private bathroom. Overall, it is a good surf camp. But it would be better with improvements to some small things. For example more frequent cleaning of the rooms, and replacing damaged toilet seats.... More

The Bungalows, Villas, or the Hostel Dorm, right there on the beach and is extremely affordable prices. Very intimate, and the staff is extremely friendly. I highly recommend this place for everyone from families to friends to couples that are seeking a small patch of the world that has been extremely untouched. Not much for contact with the outside world... More

I spent an amazing week in Paredon surf camp in February. I also pre-arranged a pick-up from Guatemala airport with the camp, as I spent long hours travelling from London and it's not easy to get there (unless you are in Antigua where you can get a camp shuttle bus). Fortunately, my driver was there waiting for me and at... More

Definitively the best place to stay at El Paredon. This place is relaxing, sparkly clean and direct on the right surf spot. The food is amazing. Fresh and tasteful. You must try the smooties and guacamole.It you are looking for an hippie vibe hostel you should go there. Hamacs are much appreciated directly on the beach. If you want to... More
