Firstly I would like to apologize to steve and his incredible staff for the lateness of this review.
Our time at Ha Atafu beach resort was nothing short of amazing , the food was incredible , as to was the service, the rooms and amenities very comfortable and clean, the layout was great -provideing us loads of shade in the warm temperatures and a quick 20 metre walk to the beach,the dining and entertainment room was spacious yet homely resulting in many fun nights with a few beers after dinner with other quest.
The thing to bare in mind is that this is not a chessy big scale pool side resort ,this is beautiful quiet beach side resort with great food and great staff and with a limited amount of quests to provide you with the most relaxing time possible.
The resort provides kayaks and many other activities, the beach is great and the snorkling amazing if your lucky you'll get to watch the whales heading north from the beach - this place has it all esp waves.
The waves? insane!! and i did'nt even score it as good as it gets. Like any surf trip you run the risk of scoring a flat spell esp if on a short time frame (if you can go 2 weeks) , Out of the 8 days i surfed everyday some days were small around chest height but super fun , some days up to 3 feet the bigger it gets the more perfect , My last day saw a new swell hitting so i was lucky enough to get a taste of how good it can be - over head barrells starting to open up more i could only imagain how pumping the next few days would've been like.
I've been lucky to surf many place around the world from indonesia to central america to canada and I fully rate this place for its Small crowds, great waves , great accomodation also steves the man - he knows everything about the surf here- 30yrs experiance!!
I'm going back for sure!!!!!!! I cant speak highly enough about it, I've already got friends and strangers making inquires- they will not be disappionted!! THANKS HA ATAFU see you soon - Andrew and Heather
