My only regrets about Surf Simply is that one: my week ended, and two: I have to wait a year to return because they are already all booked up  I spent a week with them in mid-November, and I think we surfed so much, everyone pretty much surfed themselves silly. All of the staff are amazing: the coaches, chef,...

Look. I know what you're thinking. "It's kinda pricey". Worth it. Worth it and then some. Yes, the surf coaching and amenities and the food and the facilities and the waves. Yes. Yes. Yes. Totally amazing and top-notch. As is mentioned in every other review. But the most amazing thing about Surf Simply is the things you don't expect. So...

What really makes Surf Simply special is the attention to detail that you get from the coaches, founders, waitstaff, cooks, masseuse, and stretch instructor there. They really want to make you feel that they have gone over and above for you. It was my first time here, and Harrison (my coach) was unbelievably patient but also incredibly focused on making...

It's hard for me to imagine there is another place, for anyone who loves surfing and has a desire to improve, as ideal as Surf Simply. Their combination of professionalism, organization, kindness and rich accommodations met and exceeded every expectation I had. I enjoyed absolutely everything about my week at Surf Simply, and learned a ton!

Surf Simply is surf heaven. My priority for the trip was to improve my surfing. I was worried going into it because my expectations were so high. My coaches, Jessie and Harry met and exceeded all of my expectations. Jessie is one of the most positive and surf stoked people I've ever met. Her positive energy is infectious and it...

At the time of writing this review, it's been just about four months since I got back from Surf Simply. I honestly meant to write this on the plane ride home, but for one reason or another, it got put on the back-burner. I still think about my week at the wonderful Playa Guiones and with the wonderful staff and...

the week at surf simply was really one of the weeks ever. The team is incredibly friendly and the instructions are just really professional and changed my surfing completely. Living in Europe I don't have the chance to surf regularly and therefore my progress was pretty slow and I was already thinking that surfing might be not for me. But...

We just returned from our second two-week stint at Surf Simply. We've already booked our next two-week stint. We booked our recent visit and our next visit to coincide with the return of good friends, whom we first met at Surf Simply. Many guests are returning guests, in part because the place engenders a sense of community. That, in turn,...
