    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!

    Surf Ranch Hostel is a fantastic place to stay and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone travelling to San Juan. It is just out of town, no more than a 10 min drive with free shuttles running throughout the day. Honestly the property is so lovely and so well designed you hardly want to leave. The staff are generous and kind, we had an error with our booking and they were extremely helpful. The villa is beautiful and the private terrace out of this world. Only downside is food is a bit pricey

    A long way out of town and the shuttles run at the most in convenient times if at all. There is no hot water as well which is not really acceptable for a “resort”

    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.

    So much wasted potential at this "resort", if you can really even call it that. The staff barely care about the guests. The people who served drinks and breakfast were good, but the managers and other staff sit around and dont help out when they are clearly understaffed. Food is really below average and the prices are not good. The amenities are lacking. The rooms stink and were not very well cleaned. Pretty sure the owners use this place as a tax write off. Save your money, not worth it

    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.
