We spent three nights at the Surf House in one of two Seaview Suites. First off this small hotel is located right on the ocean, which for us was a priority. One gets the constant sound of the waves and and the beach is thirty seconds away. There is an unassuming restaurant and a small pool right in front of that. Large umbrellas give one shade. Beverages are on the honor system as one checks a spread sheet for whatever one may want. There is a small palapa directly in front of the hotel with chairs and a place to escape the sun. An excellent place to watch the waves roll in. The grounds and the pool are very well maintained, clean with an abundance of plants. As to the rooms themselves. We got a suite because we wanted a private bathroom. There are only two of these rooms. They are comfortable and roomy. The shower has incredible pressure with the fixed temperature perfect for the beach. There are also casitas with private bath which are well located, have a nice porch to hang on, and can sleep more people. Only downside is the main bedroom is up a ladder and the bathroom is downstairs. There are also the beach front bungalows perched on stilts in order not to black the view form the suites. The bathrooms are shared, located behind the suites, but nice. . It never felt crowded though we were chose to come during the week. Overall we had a great stay.

We were enjoying the sunset at el paredón surf house, listening to music. A lady turn around and told us the turn the music off. We proceed to lower the volume and the same lady turned around and told us again to turn it off. I asked who’s rules were that when you are in public. beach she then said with an arrogant tone I am the manager of the resort you staying and that she didn’t make the rules. My issue is that two other people ( Americans). Had the music blasting and no one told them to turn off, second if she is the manager of the Resort she should know to deal with a paying guest. The property is stoning and the associates that work there are amazing. Not sure how this lady calls herself a manager!!!! Not sure I will recommend this property due to her treatment of her guest !!!

Very charming place. The infrastructure is beautiful and of course so is the beach. Everything is kept quite clean. The staff are very nice and it was fun ordering food with them in Spanish as they were very patient, but if you only speak English you can always find someone to translate without much trouble. I am on a plant based diet and travelled in a big group full of people with other diets and they were very accommodating of all of us, although I reserve a 5-star rating for non animal harming (a.k.a. vegan) establishments. The best part which I will remember forever is lying in the hammocks and feeling relaxed for the first time in years, right on the sand.

I really enjoyed the surf house. The staff was friendly and helpful and I was able to work with them to figure out gluten and dairy free food. In my party we had a couple vegetarians and the kitchen was able to help them too. I stayed in a suite with a private bathroom and felt it was a decent value. We lost water 1 night which made the shared bathrooms pretty ugly but they got things fixed up quick. That's just life in the 3rd world so if that bothers you el paredon might not be the best stop The grounds and facilities are clean and well kept. As other reviews have said neighboring establishments can get loud with the party set but it only bothered me 1 night and I just put in ear plugs. I was told the night life is fun but certainly not huge. I dont go out at night much so it was all good with me. The surf here is middle of the road beach break that can get heavy. Know your limitations. The rips can be strong. Check out the mangrove tours through cholla Chula. That was very pretty and Worthwhile. El paredon is growing fast so go check it out sooner than later.

Had an amazing, restful and relaxing time at Paredon Surf House over the last 3 weeks. It's a quiet peaceful place attracting not only backpackers but family and Guatemalans. There are hostels nearby that are party style which you can just join if you want. The house and grounds are well kept and probably most consistant for experienxe. The staff tend to leave you alone to enjoy or finish what they doing before help (mis-interpreted in some reviews) but if you ask always happy to help and assist. I did a quick trip to Tikal, Antigua and climb Pacaya which staff helped me organise. El Paredon has a lovely long beach, stunning sunrises and sunsets. The surf beach break and is mixed beginner to advanced and often different each day. The house and a number of places around can rent you surf/body boards and provide instructors. The local town around is small but has small stores, restaurants (even Pizza and Ice Cream/Coffee shop). The rest it up to you, I relaxed most days in hammock, long walked along beach (it's endless) or took small activity like boat to see turtle feeding, salt farm, fishing in mangroves, wakeboarding or paddle boarding. I read some of the reviews here about safety, yes most is true but I think especially those from US/Europe forget what country there in and standards are not the same especially in remote locations like El Paredon. My stay was memorable and relaxing and would return and recommend to anyone.
