“I'll be going back.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2011

This place isn't flashy or overly manicured, but it does all the important things perfectly.

Location is excellent (quick walk to Popoyo beach and far enough from the standing water to the north that it avoids the worst of the mosquitoes that plague Hotel Popoyo). Rooms are simple but clean, with reliable A/C. Staff are friendly and diligent (always hanging up my wet clothes in a safe place before i've even turned around!). Surf trips by boat are a daily possibility and affordable at $30 a person.

Saving the best till last... the food! Really special. Good breakfast (although they could learn to serve the tea or coffee before the main meal), excellent and large pasta dishes and brilliant seafood mains. There is also an pizza night once a week with top quality pizza's coming from a traditional Italian pizza oven. (this praise comes from a self confessed food snob as well).

The owner Filippo and his wife are involved and hospitable. If everything is not perfect for you, they will labour to make it so.

Top class all round.

Stayed here for 3 weeks in july 2011 and loved it. Clean hotel with really good value for money: AC, hot water shower, wifi and really nice breakfast included. The place has an Italian owner and you can tell because pretty much anything on the menu tastes great (where else would you find perfectly cooked "al dente" pasta in central america?).

The owner is also service minded and set up both surf trips by boat and took us for a guided tour up to a coffee farm in northern Nicaragua. Thanks for the stay!

We came with a group of 5 from North Caroina and did the week surf package. Everything was as advertised and more. We did both boat and truck surf trips and were never disappointed. Our surf guide, Gerald, was awesome. You can walk to Popoyo break or do the trips. All spots were fantastic. Filippo and Barbara as well as all the staff were outstanding. The food was excellent, especially the pizza, and the selections were many. We met some great people during our stay from Brazil, Uruguay, as well as other Americans. The way the place is set up is perfect for interacting with the other guests and we met some other great people who did not stay there but ate there due to the excellent food. I think our entire group would say it was one of the best trips ever and without a doubt would come back. Again, thanks Filippo and Barbara.

What a great place!
The best thing about it is that it is right there on the beach! You can sleep with the sound of the waves breaking on the shore and when you wake up in the morning, you just need to walk for 10 seconds to check the surf!
You get everything you need... good rooms, internet, phone calls, great food... Fellipo and Barbara even make awesome pizzas and are always there to help you!
I strongly recommend!
Hugs for everyone in Club del Surf! Looking foward to go back!

This place is great. A very nice little hotel...much better than the local hostels, where we spent some time hanging out with friends. Clean. Good food, the staff is so nice here. Filippo arranged rides for us back to the airport which was in the middle of the night...was so nice to have that taken care of and to feel safe as two girls traveling. I think it's the only spot with wireless internet, so it makes it a nice little hang out. Board shop right down the street....great pizza place next door.
The beach is right out front with a nice break with amazing sunsets....and it's a small walk to the bigger breaks. If I ever go back to Popoyo I will definitely stay here.

Our stay at Club Surf was excellent. The food was great, the staff was really nice and the rooms were neat and clean. We did the surf package and had a blast visiting different breaks and local attractions. Thanks guys, we had a great time!

This hotel stays right in front of the beach, excelent location, but, we recommend you rent a car (4x4) with GPS to get to know other spots around. The owners are italian, so the restaurant is the best you can find in the surroundings, and also the price is ok. Surfers can go with their girlfriends... Nice people, safe place, free wi-fi...

truly recommended"

Room Tip: Best rooms are the ones in front of the beach
