Ideal location, incredible accommodation s and attentive service make this a great spot for your next surf trip. You can surf out back, or easily drive to other top breaks. Covana is really best restaurant on the coast, with a wide variety of selections so you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Make sure you try their ceviches!!! Staff is super friendly and gets to know you. They also can help arrange for your Covid testing before departure.

Love Puro Surf. We've been three times and plan on visiting at least once per year. The staff is great and the facilities are also excellent. The coaching team does a great job. There's plenty to see / do outside of surfing also, although we typically spend our time in surf spots.

Beautiful grounds and friendly staff. I enjoyed my stay. The food is good in the restaurant. Breakfast was ok. I loved hearing the ocean so close to the room nightly. The AC didn't work on night but was fixed the next day. I did feel safe there. Overall, I would return.

Puro Surf has my highest recommendation! This resort is the ultimate surf destination. The wave quality at El Zonte is next level, the concrete wave skate park is perfect for surf training, and the yoga/fitness rooms are amazing for staying loose during a surf trip. The staff and service were fantastic, and the food at the restaurant is 5 stars! I already booked a trip for later this year! Love Puro Surf!

It's safe to say that just by looking at the pictures of this place is beautiful but wait till you see it in person :0 !!! Its breathtaking to see the ocean right in front with the waves breaking feets from you while you sip on a coconut. The accommodations are all I expected, eco-friendly, minimalist, modern, beautiful sceneries, and really close to nature! I was there for the 7-day surf camp and I'm happy to have had the amenities of the hotels after all the working out during the day. Get to my room, turn on the TV watching Netflix, and fall asleep to the sound of the crashing waves. It's like being connected to nature while having the comfort of an amazing hotel. I will be going back very very soon ! its my escape from everything while being able to do what I love surfing !

Room Tip: look for the low number of rooms, they are the ones closest to the ocean.
