The Papagayo Resort is also home to the Protest Surfcenter, offering a big surf shop, board rental and surf courses for all levels and ages. The surfcenter is open daily from 8 to 20h and you are always welcome to check forecasts or talk about waves and boards! The experienced instructors / surf guides will know exactly where you should go surfing for your level!

Other Surf Experiences
The villa had its own little swimming pool which my children absolutely loved. As we stayed out of season there wasn't a lot going on locally but as the children spent everyday in the pool anyway we didn't mind. The only complaint I would have is that the pool wasn't heated so there were goosebumps when we first jumped in!!! I would definitely book this villa again but maybe later in the year
Everything worked perfectly in the villa, no issues to report, all quite safe and in good order. One point to note would be that the trees on the terrace dropped ‘things’ and if you had children there could be a risk of injury. These ‘things’ drop from a height and land with a reasonable thud. Parking is via the road outside, whilst the villas each have a gated driveway there are no dropped kerb provisions and the road is lined with raised paving / gravel beds. Each villa is fenced and gated from all sides, all lockable so security wasn’t an issue.
