Stayed in two story deluxe bungalow was clean and was what I expected for the jungle experience. Food was ok with good size portion meals, needs a bit of love and care to facilities. Friendly staff .Keep door locked and put your stuff away in rooms as monkeys will get in and go through.

It was well organised, well maintained and (given the location) quite comfortable. This time though, the cracks have opened up. It's no longer the no. 1 choice, and everyone we spoke to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bobby's Surf Camp is the first and original camp at G-Land, operating for more than 30 years and popular by surf legends from the US and Australia. Located on the southeast tip of Java, along the eastern shoreline of Gragajan Bay in a large jungle preserve called Alas Purwo National Park, G-Land offers an unforgettable adventure experience for all level of surfers except first timers. G-land is famous for its large and powerful surf, but there are waves of much less consequence that surfer's have the option of playing with. Surfers from all corners of the globe have made their way to the Javanese jungle each year between March - November to sample G-Land's fantastic waves. The waves such as Kong, Moneytrees, Speedies, Launching Pad, Tiger Track, chicken, 20'-20', and etc. During these months the spot is rarely flat and there is a saying there - No swell in G-Land, no swell in Indonesia', It's a very special surfing destination of primitive beauty and perfect waves. G-Land (Grajagan) is truly one of the worlds great waves, perfect mechanical barrelling waves, not a drop of water out of place - makes your mouth dry just thinking about it. If you are a keen on left handers what are you still doing reading this page - pack your bags. G-Land Java is situated in a very large National Park, and is home to many different species of wild life including panther, leopard, monkeys, deer, reptiles and exotic birds. It is an amazing place and you really feel that you have made it off the beaton track. ... more   less
