Hands down the best thing about the surf ranch is the staff! They were genuinely friendly, fun, and catered to our every need. Located close enough to San Juan del sur for easy access to town and surf beaches, yet far enough for peace and quiet at night with a distinctly jungle surrounding. Shuttles into town and beaches were handy and punctual. Highly recommended!

The room was full of bugs, there was no room cleaning at all. I had to go down to reception for toilet paper, which they didn't have. The internet does not reach the rooms towards the back of the property, and as there is no 3G service, you can't use any phone/laptop in the room. I ran into another visitor who also had similar complaints, including no food available at the resort, late hostel shuttle, no room cleaning, and no free breakfast as promised.

Besides the staff, who are all polite locals, there is nothing positive about this "resort"! The place is rundown, grotty and depressing. The pool is cloudy, the bar area is dirty, the food is awful and the gym is an actual joke. The pictures of the resort are misleading and I have no idea where any of the positive reviews have come from. There are many other hostels, guest houses and hotels all over San Juan that offer considerable better value for money.
