We just finished our week at Kalon last week and can truly echo the words of all of the other reviewers who advise that this vacation was one of the best we've ever had. The resort exceeded our expectations (which were high going in based on all of the positive accolades on this forum). Perhaps the best way to explain...

My family (5) and I booked one week at Kalon for the last week of March, 2017. Without a doubt, it was one of the best vacations we've ever had. The 6 room house(s)...3 rooms in each house...looks out on an incredible view of the Costa Rican jungle down to the Pacific. The sunsets are amazing. The "home" is rustic...

"This vacation was awesome! Thank you so much for making this experience so memorable for me! The coaches and staff were amazing, very friendly and all very talented. Traveling to a foreign country can be intimidating, but everyone at Kalon were very gracious and welcoming, I felt very comfortable the entire time. I would highly recommend this vacation to anyone...

I've been to Kalon 2 years running now and each time my expectations are exceeded. The property itself is absolutely breathtaking with one of the best views I have ever seen in my life. The attention to detail in the guest rooms, in the common rooms, on the deck of the pool and on the grounds itself show that the...

This March was my second stay at Kalon. As I counted down the final weeks before the trip, I wondered if the experience could possibly live up to the magic of the first time. You know how it is when you build up something in your mind, right? It becomes larger than life and then the reality has to live...

This trip exceeded my expectations. Everyone who worked at the resort was unbelievably kind, and my boyfriend and I met an amazing group of travelers from around the world. The resort itself was beautiful - Food was great, and the staff was amazing. I never had to lift a finger - I felt like a queen. Fresh fruit, smoothies, homemade...

I’ve been to Kalon twice with my fiancee and we both love it there. I travel a lot for work and get to stay at great hotel’s like the Four Seasons and I can tell you from experience that Kalon Surf is right up there with those guys on all fronts. At first I was skeptical when I saw the...

When I travel there are 3 top considerations for me when selecting a location. Security, Sun and Food Quality. Kalon Luxury Surf Resort meets all of these criteria and then some. This was my second trip to the resort given that the first one was so absolutely magical. The tranquility of the location, friendliness of the owners and staff is...

Our 1 week visit to Kalon Surf was our best trip as a family EVER! Amazing hotel, staff, Pilates, massage, surf coaching, and food. If you want to take a vacation and learn to love life all over again, you have to spend a week at Kalon! If you want to learn to surf, there is no better place in...

Total misrepresentation of Kalon Surf Resort on this and other websites. My 2 friends and I are avid surf travelers and wanted to step up this trip and have a 'luxury' surf experience. $3,210 for 6 nites/7 days. Expensive for Costa Rica, but we're happy to pay for a great experience. This place is a total fail. The food is...
