Miramar was an incredible experience. We were a group of four and stayed for a week. We were beginners surfers and we learned and practiced a lot in just a week. Caio was a great instructor!
The vibe here is the best. Every night people get together in the dining area and socialize, have a beer, play guitar...very different than a traditional hotel.
The food is something else - home-cooked, healthy good stuff! The pitaya bowl is delicious.

The staff is kind, they know you by your name which shows how much they care about their guests.
What makes it so special is that it’s a family business and they go above and beyond to help you with anything you need - from putting a desk in your room to booking your volcano trip. It feels like you're staying at a family's home.

Thank you Dani, Caio, and Leandro for this experience, we can’t wait to come back!

Room tip: Garden-facing rooms are quieter but the ocean-facing ones have a beautiful view and ocean sound.

It was our first time in Nicaragua and Miramar Surf Camp felt like a sanctuary! The staff was so kind, welcoming, and personable. They took care of everything we needed and made sure that we were happy, relaxed, & surfing in the best conditions. Our room was comfortable, had an epic ocean view, and air-conditioning. The food was delicious and healthy. There are two beautiful yoga decks and I might come back to host a retreat there. They had everything taken care of with taxies and a trip to the volcano. The property is directly in front of an incredible break and the other two best spots are just a 15 min boat ride that they arrange. We can't wait to come back and feel like we have a home in Miramar Surf Camp!

It was our first time at Miramar and we can't wait to go back. The location is perfect, right in front of a perfect wave and also where you get the boat to get to other perfect waves as well (Puerto Sandino, Salinas, etc). We enjoyed the whole service so much and we also had all meals included (breakfast, lunch and dinner). It was great food.

The whole staff are very friendly and they will help you with everything you need. Don't forget to order an Ice Cream Sandwich, you won't regret it. I'm already missing that.

Keep up the good work!!

When I checked in the first night, there was no staff. Just a security guard who didn't know what room I was in so we went around banging on doors until we found the right one. I walked into a small room full of mosquitoes where the shower had no hot water and the bathroom had no soap. I ended up having to walk down the road the next day to buy my own soap. The grounds are nice but travelers should be aware of what they're in for with the rooms.

The surf was pretty good. I didn't love that the waves in the area are all lefts but the camp is well located in front of a surf break.

Generally the camp will nickel and dime you on everything, I paid for an all inclusive stay that is supposed to include 1 boat ride (or lesson if you're a beginner) each day. They never gave a single boat ride but at the end of the trip, suddenly presented me with an "extras" bill for short tuk tuk rides we'd taken to surf a very close beach. Had I known these weren't included, I would've just walked to that beach.

Travelers should know that board rental is NOT included in the all-inclusive package. Overall it was more expensive than other surf trips I've taken to Mexico and Costa Rica.

To summarize:
+ do NOT expect a room with hot water or soap
+ DO bring a lot of bug spray
+ DON'T pay for the all-inclusive if you know how to surf. For an extra $80 / night, they'll give you 2 meals and a "boat ride" to surf spots. But the boat ride might not actually happen, and you're basically paying $80 for 2 meals (the camp charges $10 per meal if you order them)
+ BE wary of getting charged for stuff. Whenever you're offered anything, make sure to ask whether they'll charge you at the end of the trip for it.

Hey Hank!

Thank you for coming with the group to stay with us! We enjoyed hosting you all!

I appreciate all the feedback. These are great points for us to improve.

Biggest apologies on our side about the down sides!

As a group of 34 you guys had a special custom package!

Our all inclusive package does not include board rental which was the majority of your bill. Desserts are also extra as the package just includes the 3 meals.

You guys came at one of the biggest swells of the year but we are happy for some of the group members that extended to stay longer to be able to surf some great waves at Sandino!

When our guests arrive after 11pm we do leave the key with the security guard to take you to the room but since there were a couple of you that arrived we should of had that more organized. We don't have staff for midnight check in as we are just family run business!

I know you were confused since the beginning when you reserved a Private Non Ocean View room with breakfast only and then you wanted to upgrade to the Private Ocean View Room Surfer Package.

Since of the big swell boats were prohibited to go out by the marines law.

Hot water we dont have and have never had as its normally 90 here.


Again we are happy for all of you that came! Some is was their second time and others are already coming back!

Cheers
Familia Miramar

Miramar Surf Camp is a great place to surf and disconnect from the world. Everything is set up for an easy surf vacation. The staff and people that run the place are awesome and took great care of us. They really live the lifestyle and shared it with us. We just got home and already miss the place.

We really enjoyed the other guests as well everybody was really nice and down to earth. I brought my girlfriend on the trip and there was plenty of soft tops/long boards/ fun shaped boards for her to use also. The food and atmosphere are on point! The upper deck with the hammocks & yoga mats is also one of my favorite things about this place. Great spot to drink coffee, meditate, and check the surf.

If you’re thinking about booking this trip do it. We had a full week of good food, good waves, naps, fun, good company, and rest.
