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...More
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...More

Just back from a vacation at Kalon, which trip I entered with high expectations based on these (and other) reviews and which vacation ultimately exceeded my already high expectations. If you read the reviews below, you will know that Kalon is a beautiful property with...More
A well-designed, tastefully decorated and ideally located property that overlooks the ocean and offers a spectacular view of the Costa Rican sunset, which is consistently beautiful every single night!

Hi! It poured almost every day I was there, and I still had the best vacation of my life. The good news is, surfing is an activity that can be done quite happily in the rain -- after all, you're already wet! And I loved sitting in the rocking chair on the porch outside my room, reading while the rain fell.
As for the comment from "k m," they're pretty obviously either working for or being paid by a competitor. The ride to the beach was one of my favorite parts of the day, getting to know my fellow guests and our coaches.
Oh: And the waves were perfectly predictable, as far as waves go. They're waves. I was the least-advanced surfer of the group while I was there, and the coaches took time out to stay with me and help me improve while the more advanced surfers paddled farther out and caught bigger waves, worked on turns, etc. Go to Kalon!

Feel free to email me personally if you have any Kalon questions or doubt my authenticity. On your mosquito question, we did not experience any mosquitos (other bugs, yes (it is a jungle after all), but no mosquitos. The resort is on top of a mountain with breezes almost all the time which could cut down on mosquito population.
