I stayed in an amazing villa that was fully furnished. It had everything we needed. Nothing was overlooked. The pool was great too. It had a cool swim up bar. The food at the resturant was delicious. I also did 5 days of surfing lessons and also sailed on a catamaran. It was so fun! The staff was professionally trained, courteous, and friendly which made it much more enjoyable. I had such a great time I can't wait to go again!

I found this vacation package while surfing online and decided to give it a try. I took this vacation as a chance to see something I have never seen at a place I have never been and I have NEVER had a better time on any vacation! The place is BEAUTIFUL!! The Swim up bar was my favorite place to hang out! LOL! The People who work there are so nice and go out of their way to make sure your stay is the best ever! We are for sure coming back!! My boyfriend and I are not surfers but we thought it was cool to act like one for a week! LOL! Nearly drowned! Just kidding! It was fun, romantic, relaxing, and a complete 5 star vacation! I highly recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a different experience! You Will NOT be disappointed! Oh and if you book this make sure you get the Luxury Villa!! That is what we had and I loved it! We are already planning our next trip! See you guys soon!!! Love Beck and Kelly

Room Tip: Get the Luxury Villa! It is worth it!

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"
