I am just back from a week with the surf simply team. I have nothing but compliments to give.
I fell in love with their website, which I thought was showing a very unique atmosphere, but everything I found over there exceeded any expectations I had.
The location is perfect, very close to the beach (10mins walk), but far enough that the mosquitoes do not bother you at night. Still a golf buggy takes you to and from the beach for each surf sessions, which means all of your energy can be focused on trying to get the best out of the coaching and the perfect waves over there.
The atmosphere is brilliant, and can be explained by the very relaxed environment that the owners have set up. We were 9 guests staying at the camp. all from different backgrounds and origins, but all with a desire to learn something new, and to enjoy every minute of the experience. That meant many great evenings in one of the local restaurants (Casa Romantica highly recommended), or sat by the pool having a cold beer after a good day of surfing
Accomodations are very comfortable, perfectly clean, even though you do not end up spending much time in your bungalow. Your own terrace can still provide with some isolation if you want to spend some quiet time with a book.
Well done once again to the team for what has been one of my best holidays to date
