    Really enjoyable surf canmp. We were on the weekly package and stayed in a cabana with a private bathroom. Upside was people were great, food was good and decent portions most

    of the time. The head surf coach Jose was one of the best i have had, very technical and dedicated, Walter was also great. The camp is a wee bit out of town and away from the surf beach so we hired a car so we could move around easier but the camp does put on transfers. All in all was a great week and good value.

    What an amazing experience! The staff, the surf instructors, the activities, the aesthetic, the rooms, the vibe, the people, the food and more - all excellent! By far the high

    ight of our trip. After 6 days of surfing we went from having barely surfed to catching our own green waves at the line up, completely hooked on surfing now. Awesome quality and amazing value. Thank you very much to the whole team, you’ve created something really special here.

    We loved the place, the vibe, the food, the staff and the surfing! Hernan was the best activity manager you could ask for, he welcomes you every day with a smile and tries to

    ake the best out of your stay: no matter if surfing, bonfires at the beach, drinks and live music or surf skating. Fran was a lovely yoga teacher! I loved her lessons and she teaches with all her heart. She also does the massages and the crystal healing and I absolutely loved both - it was definitely worth the money! Surfing was really nice too - you get good waves in Jan / Feb for both beginners and intermediates. Be aware of the cold wind and water though. If you can - bring a thin wetsuit. Jose, Miguel and the crew are really nice surf instructors and they support you in improving your surfing by offering surf theory and also tell you what to improve in the water. Food is amazing, you get a starter, main course and dessert. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone. We are coming back :)

    It was like a beautiful dream staying at Dreamsea. I wanted to learn something new so I decided to attend surf camp at Dreamsea and it exceeded my expectation. The property w

    s well kept and very clean. The landscaping was beautiful. It was so nice to be surrounded by trees, plants and animals. I usually don't stay in dorms but the dorm rooms were spacious, well decorated and clean. I signed up for the weekly package which included surf lessons, surf theory, yoga lessons and a meal plan (breakfast and dinner). Prior to arriving at Dreamsea, I have never been on a surf board and I left with a strong foundation and knowledge of the sport. The instructors were all very knowledgeable and fun to learn from. The yoga lessons were perfect after a day of surfing. The food at Dreamsea was some of the best food I ever had at a resort. Dreamsea organized daily activities so you are never left bored. However, if you want some alone time, there was plenty of space on the property for you to chill out and have some me time. The best thing about Dreamsea were the people, they were truly part of the dream team. Thank you Jose, Jose, Fran, Miguel, Barney and the rest of the staff at Dreamsea for an unforgettable experience.
