I booked 8 nights at BVSC recently based on reviews from this website. The pictures do not lie! In fact, the photos do not do justice to the beauty and scope of this place. I came with high expectations and left more than impressed! Like many have already said, Marc and Marielle are incredible, sociable hosts/owners and have done one hell of a job building this hotel. The current live-in hosts, Flora and Bart are amazing as well! They do a great job of integrating with the visitors and you end up feeling as if you are all there together as friends. We had great times together!
Echoing other reviews, the food was AWESOME! I eat quite a bit and was concerned that the portions would not be enough for me. On the contrary! I filled my stomach at every meal with more left over. The communal meals were a great way to meet the other guests (I was traveling alone). Bart's surf lessons were great. The beach was fantastic. Excellent surf. My room was super cozy with a spectacular view of the jungle with the ocean in the background. A day trip with the group to Hermosa Beach was a ton of fun!
I travel a lot and this was definitely one of my greatest travel experiences! You won't be disappointed.
