I stayed four days at Waidroka while my boyfriend surfed. The staff was amazing--very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. I enjoyed the cozy dinners with other guests and some of the staff, conversing and learning of other places. However, I would not recommend if you're not an advanced surfer or a diver. These waves are not for intermediate-beginner surfers. If you...

Waidroka is a friendly, fun resort that is small enough to feel intimate. I was there for a week recently for my wreck diver certification.
