“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2011

Don't miss this gorgeous place! Expect fantastic beaches, lush vegetation and clean and comfy rooms. Many thanks to Gustavo for the great surfing lessons. If you want to make the most of your beach vacation, Gustavo is also a Spanish teacher. Conclusion: this place has it all.

I had a great time at the Perfect Sunset School. The view is exactly what the name suggests - the sun sets right in front of the hotel. There is a great beach break a couple minutes walking from the hotel and a reef/rock break further down the beach for more experienced surfers (not me). The people were great and Gustavo is excellent. I definitely recommend it if you're heading to Costa Rica. I'll be back.

The perfect sunset school holds its name with incredible sunsets almost every night. I spent 30 days at the perfect sunset school doing the surf school and surf camp. The location of the hotel is gorgeous. Gustavo is an extremely friendly and helpful director of the school and does everything he can to make your costa rican experience everything you want it to be. Good surfing at playa hermosa is a short 10 to 15 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is small and quaint run by Gustavo and Javier who will make you feel at home right away. The perfect sunset school is located a short ways outside the main town of santa teresa which makes it very peaceful. The food and hospitality at the perfect sunset school were excellent with a variety of great food. I searched for a variety of surf school/camps in costa rica and the options were endless. The value at the perfect sunset school with the combination of great people made it an amazing experience for me. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience in a tropical paradise.
