I was looking for an exceptional two week vacation in Costa Rica. I needed to chill, surf, and be surrounded by nature. Kalon Surf was exactly what I needed. It's in the middle of the jungle, and very close to the beach.
Kalon Surf is a beautiful mansion with fantastic views. It offers excellent service, delicious food, and great surfing, and surfing instruction. I connected with the other guests. We can't wait to go back.
I want to thank the entire Kalon Surf crew for their generosity of spirit and fun.
A special shout out to the surfing crew for their patience and dedication, you all were awesome!
I give you 5 stars and two thumbs up!
I will see you again, soon, Merci beaucoup, Dominique

This is the first review I've written in all the years I've travelled but I had such an amazing time I really want to encourage others to stay at Kalon Surf! I wasn't planning on going back to Costa Rica so soon after my last trip but Kalon Surf really had everything I was looking for - surf coaching in a luxury and intimate location, with healthy fine dinning food, in a beautiful and tropical setting - I booked the place within an hour of reading about it! I have to say Kalon managed to exceed my already high expectations after looking at the website and reading the reviews - I also had the added bonus meeting 8 wonderful strangers who have become friends. Kalon is a great place to go either alone or with a partner or group of friends for some down time and personal development. I had never surfed before but the team had me popping up on the first day and I came away being able to call myself a "surfer". Thank you to all the team at Kalon - from the coaches, to the client experience team, to the chefs, and of course Luna and Cala (the friendly dogs). Special thanks to JC for letting us stop for souvenirs on the way to the airport! Can't wait until next time, David

We were looking for a surf camp that provided fresh food, all-inclusive drinks and beautiful views of Costa Rica. Kalon surpassed every expectation! The chefs, surf instructors and customer experience team go above and beyond to make your week incredible. Even if you have never been on a surfboard, you'll leave CR able to surf and wanting more. Every day you're served fresh breakfast (sometimes on the beach!), homemade snacks, and creative lunches and dinners using locally sourced food. Juan and Deinner make every course a work of art. Every detail of your vacation is taken care of, from the airport pickup/drop off to the massages/facials, daily video analysis of your surf sessions, and other excursions to explore Dominical. This place is a serious gem - I almost don't want to tell people about it ;) but we will 100% be back again.

Room Tip: Every room is huge and has a 180 degree view of the ocean and property. We enjoyed our corner room but really every one is equally good!

I never write review but the experience was so good I could not help it. I have always traveled and I have been many places and done trips that are experience oriented trips. None have been as good as this experience was. They have something special there. I had never been on a surf board and I was hitting green (big) waves by the end. I know all the surf coaches buy name and they were truly helpful and just all around great guys that made the whole thing fun. Juan Carlo the chef and his food’s fabulous. I’m from New Orleans and know love food. I love coffee and they have some of the best I have ever tasted. I can’t say enough great things other than Kalon has a special place in my heart from now.

This was our second trip to Kalon and it was even better than my wife and I remembered!!! The staff at Kalon is amazing. Our surf coaches Andres, Diego, Junior, and Juan Carlos are awesome. They gave us great instructions and the daily video analyses are really helpful. The resort and the beaches are beautiful and uncrowded. Juan, Deiner and Elma prepared delicious, healthy cuisine for us all week (the food is as good as the surfing!!!). Lastly Natalie, Juan Carlos, and Andrea made every little detail special! Thanks for a memorable vacation; we can’t wait to come back again!!! PURA VIDA!!!
