“Luxurious surprise with a chilled out & friendly vibe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

I was staying in Ayamonte in Spain & decided to Book an overnight stay & SUP session, for my boyfriend and I. I was so impressed as I was expecting a hostel when in fact it is more like a luxury villa (it even has a jacuzzi). The staff & other holiday makers were so friendly & chilled. We couldn't help but get caught up in the chilled out vibe. I felt more at home than in my actual home lol. The living area is designed for just chilling & watching TV, with a good selection of movies, if you're too tired to go out after a day at the beach. There are plenty of private areas around the villa if you want some quiet time also. The villa is very clean & the surfers breakfast is lovely. The instructors were great & very knowledgable. I can't wait to go back and experience it for longer.

I visited jah Shaka surf with my Uni surf club however we mingled with the other guests at the lodge and Became like one big group! The surf lessons were incredible and thanks to the patient teacher my surfing improved so much!

The lodge itself is gorgeous, I stayed in one of the tepees in the garden which was basically the best experience of glamping to be had! I'd definately recommend staying in one if you visit the lodge!

Such good value for money, take me back!

Ultimate chill, so much to do, all the guests are so nice, like one big family (not in a cruise holiday way, that would suck) but just a place to be comfortable beyond belief. Sat by the fire every single night with a different group of people each time, riveting conversation and slept like a baby. Slept in both the rooms and the tepees and had better nights sleep than at home. Absolutely loved it even though the surf/weather weren't the best the particular week we went there. Not 1 complaint. Cheers for such an amazing week that I'll remember forever!

PS cannot express how much there is to do, indo boarding, vollyball court, pool, slacklining, cycling, skating and you do it at your leisure.

Where do I start? The last week of my life has changed me for the better. I came out to Jah Shaka with a group of novice university surfers and left with beautiful memories of sun, sea and finding my inner peace out at sea. The villa is beautiful with staff that are always ready to put a smile on your face.
When we weren't surfing, we could enjoy the pool, volleyball courts and the endless list of other activities that are on offer. A personal favourite of mine was paddle-boarding around Lagos, around caves which ended with a stunning yoga session. In the evenings we relaxed around the campfire singing songs, and ventured into town to explore the vibrant local nightlife.
To top it all off, I met some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The grouped instantly gelled and quickly became more of a family than a group of tourists. When the group went their separate ways at the end of the holiday it was hard to hold back a tear or two, which goes to show just how much Jah Shaka meant to us all.

Amazing location, no better hostel staff, the price was fantastic and the staff will take you and your entire group to the best possible breaks for the skills levels you are at. 24 of our university surf clubbers went and everyone of them had an amazing time....... just go, best advice I can give,

I went here as a single traveller in August 2013. Guests were approx. 50/50 single travellers and couples/friends. Almost everyone mingled, which was great. There was a very relaxed atmosphere and both the staff and guests were very welcoming to everyone. I was afraid there'd be an arrogant atmosphere of surfers who deem themselves very cool (I was a first time surfer and that was my perception of surfers) but this was not at all the case. The guests were very diverse but all open and almost everyone was 25+.

Surfing lessons were awesome, 1 instructor for approx. 8 surfers which was way better than the other surf schools. Loved the surfing. Hoping to come back here some time.

Would definitely recommend going here!

Had a great time at Jah Shaka- first rate facilities, staff who couldnt do more to help you and loads of activities for you to go and do if you want to. Also a free breakfast laid and its a BARGAIN- what more could you ask for from a holiday? The only bad bit was that I had to come home at the end of it! Keep up the good work guys and will see you in the future!
