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...

This was such an amazing trip on so many levels. The area is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. It is run so well and everything is first rate. The instructors are ALL amazing. A special shout out to our instructor Henri. He was so patient, always encouraging and has such a calm way about him. I...

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 great service, and great food. But that description, while accurate, doesn’t do Kalon justice. Kalon...

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! Charlie, the concierge/manager, is organized and friendly and helps with any request, large or small. Juan, the chef, is a true artist and creates gourmet dishes with local ingredients in order...

Kalon surf exceeded my expectations in every way. The food was excellent, the coaches were great, the rooms were spotless, the view was to die for. The wine could have been better, so next time I'll put in an order for better wine. I'll be coming back next year for sure!

My wife and were looking for somewhere fun, romantic and exotic to spend our 10 year anniversary, which also fell on both of our birthdays. My wife found Kalon online after a quick search for "all inclusive surf resort." We were a little skeptical at first so turned to countless websites for reviews. All reviews were extremely positive. We were...

I'm still stoked after last week at Kalon! This is my second trip to Kalon and it was even better than the first time. Maybe because it feels like I'm coming to visit a family that genuinely cares about making sure I'm having the best experience. The attention to detail whether it's the food, housekeeping, surf coaching (Henry, Andres, Roberto...

I found Kalon on a Google search. All I knew was that for 10 years since visiting Costa Rica, I wanted to go back and learn to surf. I booked with very little information known about Kalon, but it was some of the best money I ever spent. From the countdown to the trip, Kalon stayed in touch and shared...

Professional, concierge service from pre-reservation, booking, planning, FAQs, special-needs meals, customized surf coaching, to transportation back to the airport. Charlie provided patient service from the start. Chefs Juan & Geiner cooked delicious meals, photographer Diego, and the surf crew (Junior, Henry, Andres, Roberto) were all so kind & encouraging. I never went hungry, in fact I gained weight. My only...
