I had a shared room and surf lessons for a quick weekend trip. From the first second on entering the place I felt like home with family and friends around. Surf conditions were not the best when I was there but the weather was great and the instructors are very good. Amazing weekend trip!

I had the chance to stay at Jahshaka once again, and this time I took my friend with me. She was very satisfied and we both had a great time. Even though the weather wasn't perfect, they did the best out of it! Good food, great wine and definitely the best hosts. A very special thank you to the whole...

I can totally understand and agree all the negative reviews i have noticed. I have stayed in a couple of surf camps before and Jah Shaka Surf is a really bad experience. You know why? Because they dont care about you. There was a warm welcoming when we arrived there and the staff (girls) showed us the property. But afterwards...

Hi Burnaburnt13, whilst I wholeheartedly agree with some of your comments I just want to initially correct some facts- 'They say 6 lessons with a professional surf coach. We had probably 3 lessons' -Lessons for a standard surf package are 10 in total for a 5 day period. In a beginner group they take up to 10-12 people. -Like every...

The staff and the place itself both ooze relaxed times. Very welcoming and helpful as a place to stay and loads of activities to boot. The location is a bit out of town so a car is handy but they do transfers too.

I visited Jah Shaka in October, in fact am only leaving today which I'm frankly gutted about! As I was traveling solo, I was a tad anxious but from the moment I arrived, I was made to feel extremely welcome and at ease. The hostess gave me a tour, explained how my surfing lessons would be arranged and introduced me...

I visited Jah Shaka quite recently and had the best time, I couldn’t have asked for a more chilled/smooth holiday, just what you need when you’ve been working in an office for too long time! The People, Surf and Yoga were amazing and the weather just topped it off! I never usually read or leave reviews but from reading the...

Really enjoyed the Salty Jack Lodge with a chill and relaxed atmosphere and friendly people. The appartments are absolutely value for money and the possibilities to yoga and swim are great! There are also a lot of activities which can be done in the area. Especially the mountainbiking in the area.

I visited Jah Shaka in October and stayed in their Teepees at their Salty Jacks resort too:( Booked intermediate week travelling solo. Foam boards are all that are offered.

Hi Clare I can only express deep regret that on this rare occasion you were let down and we didn't deliver the experience that we have done for so many other customers.

I always like to read a few reviews before writing mine... positive ones and really negative ones, and I kind of know what kind of people would write either one or the other if I think about my 9 days in this place...
