Beach Break surf camp is a fantastic place for surfing and being with friends and family. It is also a great place to meet people from all over the world who want to surf and swing in the hammocks and watch the waves. The surf instructors are very good and will teach basic skills and safety, or give you tips to move to a new level if you already know how to surf. The food at the restaurant is extremely good. Vegans and carnivores can find great food. All of the meals were delicious. If you have a chance to rent the Casa Del Mar, you should do it. The house is very pretty and has an amazing view. I highly recommend Beach Break surf camp.

Awesome staff, hotel, restaurant, views, and location! If you are learning to surf THIS is the spot. Brett, Ron, Rafiq, and all the guys are great teachers, patient and really help you regardless of skill level learn to surf some of the best waves on the planet. Rooms are basic but nice, and the food is great. Awesome breakfast (included) and for the lunch the tuna & shrimp tacos are killer.

Come here for a week and leave with a new family. We're a group of mature guys with a mix of surf skill levels. Fantastic instruction from Brent. He was able to teach 3 newbie 50+ guys to catch waves on their own in 5 days. More advanced guys were showed where the waves were and offered tips with an instructor escorting them. Awesome service.Everything about this trip to Playa Venao was great. The food at the restaurant was beyond expectation. So much so that we only explored other restaurants on 3 nights.Included in the stay was daily yoga. It was needed after 2 sessions of surfing each day.

We did not stay at the hotel but came to do a surf lesson. We had a senior, adult and child in our group and they were able to cater to us all in the same lesson. We only intended on doing one lesson but ended up booking 2 more. Alexis is literally the best instructor! He is very kind, willing and always smiling. The restaurant next door has just the right menu for when you get done. Highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to learn how to surf!

I cannot speak highly enough about this place! John, Brent, Javier, Diego, and the rest of the team are all incredible teachers and people. They made surfing approachable, simple, and fun! Our whole group of newbies got up the first day and surfed the whole week. All thanks to this amazing group of coaches! You could tell they take pride in their teaching and were all genuinely stoked seeing us get up.The food was amazing and the staff was great! Everyone was so welcoming. Definitely plan on going back!
