Tola, Nicaragua
Reviewed 23 November 2016

My wife and I were fortunate to manage a resort in Nicaragua and while living there we were able to travel to the surrounding areas to visit other hotels and resorts. We saw that Surf Ranch had some amenities that were much different from the usual hotels and decided to take a look. We sure were glad that we did....

As others have said, this is not in San Juan Del Sur, however, I understood that when I booked. Be aware that it is not walkable, and you will need a shuttle or your own vehicle to get there. The common areas, pool and palapa bar are very nice and well represented by the pictures. Rock wall, skateboard park, Voce...

Dear Guest Thank you for staying with us at the Surf Ranch. Yes on our website and listings, it shows the resort is 3km from downtown, with free shuttles, but we are the closest resort to the surf beaches. If staying in town you need to drive past the resort on the way to the surf beaches, as there is...

Dear Guest It is great to hear that you had no complaints about the resort itself, and it is too bad you did not stay to experience that full Surf Ranch experience that our guests have come to love. As we talked about through email, our hotel has cancellation policies, the same as all hotels, and also you booked a...

We loved our stay! The staff was beyond polite and it is at a great location. We loved the jungle feel away from the city with only a 5 minute drive into town. Get the all inclusive alcohol package because the local beer (Tona) and Rum (Flor de Cana) are absolutely delicious and you'll want more! We would recommend the...

Spent 5 days at the Surf Ranch..really nice place with AC'd rooms. The first room I had (#3) had a horrid stench in the bathroom but the fine folks at the front desk were able to move me the next day (shout out to Adolfo!). The staff in general were super friendly and helpful. I took the all inclusive deal...
