“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Hello, I live in Managua, and i went to Surf Ranch to spend my vacations out of the city, and i just want to say that i love Surf Ranch action sports resort, The customer service is exellent, the crew is very gentle and friendly, and you can do soooo many activities that u never get bored, and if you just want to rest you can do it as well because is a very peacefull place, the pool its amazing i love the design, the bartender was great, and the forest that the resort have is out of this world, i even saw little monkey in the trees of the forest, is awesome, i truly recomend this to whoever want to have a great experience visiting San juan del Sur, this is something you will never forget. :)

We liked the hotel. Its location was very accesible. Room service and staff were on their toes to get things done. Nice pool. Large enought to have a nice sight of the area and take a dive without getting bothered and spent a relaxing time. I liked the food and is one of the nicest hotels in the san juan del sur bay area, another thing I loved from this place is that you have the option to practice a variety of water sports and also an amazing skateboard park for those who loves this sport. it was a very pleasant stay!!!!!!!

This has definitely got to be the coolest resort in Nicaragua, and for that matter Latin America. Nicaragua is the next Costa Rica, but I say get there before the large crowds do. It’s the second safest country (behind Canada) in the America’s and is soooooo cheap to boot. The Surf Ranch resort is the perfect place to go, jam packed filled with activities (surfing, jungle paintball, skateboarding, scuba diving, fishing, etc. etc. etc.). It’s got brand new facilities with everything you would want and need. Go for week, two weeks or a month. Go as a single traveller, a couple or a family. You wouldn’t regret it!

Room Tip: Just google "Surf Ranch Nicargua"
