Just back from an incredible week with the gang at Surf Simply. Hopefully this review is not ordinary but gives you an insight into the way that the resort is built and catered to learning how to surf. First off, the grounds are beautiful, and Ru is a pretty serious dude when it comes to attention to detail. For example,...

If you want to learn how to surf, having never done so, this is your place. If you like to bask in the sun in February (for Yankees) by a beautiful pool during the afternoon, this is your place. If you are tech savy and loathe being out of touch and need wifi, apple TV, advanced AV systems, and a...

I could gush about the place but everybody has already done that so I'll try to provide some useful info to those considering the trip. This place is special because of the people and...

I recently returned from my 2nd week at Surf Simply and all I can think about is going back again.

For the all inclusive surf resort/surf coaching experience, Surf Simply is the best there is! There were 14 of us matched with 6 coaches and supported by a staff that made sure that all we had to think about was surfing and enjoying the community of cool people from all around the world. The location doesn’t get any better either...

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...
