The camp is a cute place.It's directly at the beach and you need to cross a river (at low tide it doesnt even reach the beach) to get there. It has little colorful houses that can accomodate 4 people. It's relatively clean. The mattresses are very bad though. (Was a bit expensive with $120/night in high season.) Food in the...

It seems like a cool place that genuinely wants you to enjoy Santa Catalina at first, but after a day goes by they prove themselves to be greedy and not actually provide half the services they claim. They came up with several random charges that almost doubled the agreed price of my stay. I felt taken advantage of by staying...

We have been coming over for 3 to 4 days and stay at the beach cabins where you will stay the whole trip and do nothing but enjoy the large beach. The break on front of the beach is perfect for kids and beginners to start learning how to surf. Walking distance you can get to the point, that is...

I travelled here during the month of August. This place has the best location and view in Santa Catalina, hands down. A collection of concrete cabanas and scattered tents on Estero Beach. The only caution to mention is the hotel property is separated from the mainland by a small river that needs to be crossed. Depending on whether it's high-...

This vacation was one of my favorite, the surf camp Oasis offers the possibility sto stay at the center of the Santa Catalina town in the hostel, I stayed there just one night, the location was ok but small and too hot, after that we moved to the cabanas in front of the ocean and it was really a paradise!...

Great location, great people, great surf. We looked at most other places to stay and were happy to pay a little premium for a cabana directly on the beach. We did not regret it. The place was a dream-come-true. Comfortable and clean cabana, decent breakfast and extraordinary service at the reception. At the time, there was an Italian girl working...
