From the minute I left Surf Simply in December 2012, I was hankering to go back. Now, after a week this January, I'm looking at my calendar again to see when I can go back a 3rd time. Why? Apart from the beauty of Playa Guiones and the warm water, Surf Simply's combination of intensive surf instruction and client service...

I just returned from a week at Simply Surf and it was two words - simply great. I really wanted to improve my surfing and do it in an environment (true "resort" setting) that was comfortable, all inclusive and with instructors that are attentive, supportive and know their stuff. Simply Surf has all of that and access to great waves...

The best review of any destination is a repeat visit. This is my second trip here in less than a year, and I fully intend to come back again. I came for the surf instruction - which is first rate - but the amenities and the personalities of the coaches and the staff make this a really unparalleled experience. The...

My 23 year old son, Tristan, and I just spent one of the best weeks of our lives, surfing and bonding at Surf Simply. Surf Simply leaves nothing out of their guest's experience. Superb staff, excellent food, an extremely relaxing and friendly atmosphere and the BEST (and I mean, THE BEST) surf coaches that you could ask for. Our coaches,...

Wonderful experience for every level of surfer from me, the total beginner, to my 24 year old twin sons who were rusty surfers but quickly rebounded to their past levels and beyond and even my husband, a nonsurfer, due to some recent surgery. There was plenty of family time to connect after surfing due to the Wi-Fi and delicious group...

This place is amazing! My wife and I were supposed to go to Surf Simply a couple of years ago but she injured herself skiing and we had to cancel (see my previous review - Ru was very helpful and accomodating with our unexpected cancellation).

Amazing location, excellent staff - amazing retreat. Learned a lot AND had fun. Went with my boyfriend who is a very experienced surfer. I'm very beginner. There were all levels in between, and everyone advanced in leaps and bounds throughout the week. The coaches are professional and knowledgeable; technical, but not TOO much as to be inaccessible. The casitas were...
