Turtle Surf Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 15, 2014

With the fairest prices, and the best impression from the internet, our decision was Turtle Surf Camp. We were picked up from the airport and were warmly welcomed in the small Resort. The rooms are well designed and very comfortable. The bathroom is huge and it's a real pleasure to hang around. Now to the main thing: the surfing. We booked a 5 day surfing lesson package with 2 hours of surf lessons per day, since we are total beginners. It's a one to one treatment meaning every student gets his own teacher. The teachers are very nice to have around and hang with. As a result, learning progress is huge and I was able to stand waves at the second day already! There are only 4 rooms, so living here and knowing all the other guests is like a very friendly tiny group. The resorts itself doesn't have a restaurant, but you can buy groceries in town and cook in the state of the art kitchen. Also there are tons of restaurants around. So no worries there. All in all a very recommendable place an if it wasn't for our already booked flight back, we would have loved to stay longer.

Perfect place to surf, meet awesome people (Kitya and Enrique), eat, drink and chill :)
The owners are very kind, they can plan what you want to do on the island and know well places to be.
Surfing spirit!

It really feels like home at the Turtle Surf camp, warm & friendly people, great food, great vibe and very cozy place! Thanks for the hospitality! Wish to be back here next time! If you are a thrill-seeker then this is the best place for you. A fun-filled adventure for couples, friends and families. Highly recommended, easy to locate and very convenient because it's near surfing spots, stores, restaurants and markets.

What can I say that hasn't already been said.

Had the most relaxing time here. Arrived to a dinner of suckling pig (which I highly recommend), a full day of Surfing, Island Hopping with lunch, and to come home and relax poolside with beer in hand.........Paradise...

Felt like I was staying at a mates place......

Rooms are just what u want. Tidy, clean. Hot water. Comfy bed.
