THE CARDON ? OH COME ON.
Seven days of uncrowded surf, fantastic people, great food and how about the lodging.Pool side after the morning session with a good book just before my massage that relaxes the muscles in preparation for another great day tomorrow.Already booked and waiting impatiently for the next trip

I am an aged male surfer of 40 years of H20 time, and suffer from and incredible amount of health problems, concerns and serious issues. The only condition that allows me to have a session is that of heavy medication to block/defer pain for another day/hour. I obviously should give up this beloved love, but I would rather die. The Cardon experience blessed me with renewed appreciation for the art that defines who I am and why I'm here ( in part ).

My review is simple, clear and consistent with many guest. The following expressions are as follows:

Owners/Staff - Hospitality and genuine concern for your experience to be a lifetime memory.

Ocean Action - Young, old or in between, numerous days to stoke your soul. The Sea has to cooperate, but as killer sales rep, Jeff said to me recently " Cardon does not disappoint " BTW.. Crowds??? No!

Fellow Guest - Whether you are a grom or a prune, you will meet and associate with our fellow brothers and sisters in the fight to stay sane in this complicated planet we inhabit. The stories and experiences shared by all the guest and staff with deepen your understanding of wave riding and worldwide surf dynamics and LIFE. Not to mention making new friends.

Food and Facilities - Next to none. I need total comfort with massages daily, jacuzzi action 3 X daily. Good beds/suites and healthy food that you might readily trade your 1st issue of Surfer
Mag for...

Additional Comments: Too many to list.

Negatives: Eventually you have to go home or move on to another place.

Room Tip: If you are disabled and have issues with a few stairs, you might select a ground-floor suite.

My week at Cardon was the best surf trip I have ever been on and one of the best vacations I have ever been on. The consistency of the surf was unreal and the venue, the accomodations, the food, and the staff are all first rate.I am going back in the Spring!

Room Tip: all the rooms have a view of the break!

My stay at Cardon was enjoyable in every category imaginable. The waves were pure fun and being from Hawaii, plenty juicy to keep me satisfied. I can't say enough about the wonderful service provided by every single employee and also the clean, comfortable and relaxing setting. Meeting with old friends and making new ones, all of whom were just the best, made my week sadly slip by all too soon. Without a doubt I am returning

Surely not the cheapest of all choices for a surfing holiday but what could you say if scoring 7 out of 7 days with waves, good food and quality time spent with friends? Would definitely go back. Service was very good too.

Cardon is simply a fantastic option for a family surf trip. I’ve done a lot of surf travel and this is truly one of the very best options for including wives and kids. The accommodations are great, all with A/C, large flat screen TV’s, DVD players, and satellite TV for down time with the kids. All of the units face out to the pool and ocean, and you can watch your family from one spot whether they are in the pool (which is great, with shallow areas for kids), on the beach, or out surfing. There are also lots of kid’s toys around (boogie boards, soft top boards, etc.). Perhaps best of all, it’s only a 2.5 hour flight from LAX and 1 hour ride from Mazatlan, and while there it’s a quick walk to 2 great uncrowded surf spots, never having to get on a boat. We felt completely safe the entire time and the food was fabulous!

I don't know where to begin. A friend of mine went Cardon last October and wouldn't stop raving about it. I had my 40th birthday coming up so I figure I why not go to Cardon for a surf trip.
I expected the waves to be good, the hotel to be nice and the food to be tasty.
Well, EVERYTHING was way beyond expectations. The surf was absolutely perfect. Glassy Head to Overhead 200-250 yard lefts everyday ALL WEEK LONG. I seriously thought I was dreaming.
The hotel is a slice of heaven. Imagine floating in an infinity pool or sitting in the jacuzzi after a long surf session just watching the waves peel by as you rest until you're ready to surf again.
The hotel grounds are clean, well maintained and beautiful. Rooms are spotless. AC in each room. Each room has a view of the beach.
The cuisine is top notch. I was never hungry. Each course was prepared with the freshest ingredients. Every day lunch and dinner was something different and creative and fantastic.
The hotel staff, the owners and surf host Jeff were all great people. Anything asked for, anything you needed was taken care of within minutes. I was blown away.
The most amazing thing about the trip was meeting the guests. By the end of the week, we all exchanged contact info and email each other frequently. They are all now friends of mine.
So, what else can I say. If you like surfing perfect lefts until your legs burn, eat amazing food, stay in a beautiful boutique like hotel with really great people, GO!!!!
My wife and 8 year old daughter came along and had a blast as well! And they don't surf.
I booked my spot for next July as well as late April. Yup, I'm going twice next year. It was that great.
