Flavio made our trip! It was amazing with pumping waves. Special thanks to this man that got us on every wave. Cheers, Flav! We stayed in the surfer house, which was comfortable but getting a little run down in my opinion. Terry, Hatsumi, and all the Aloita staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Pang Man (as we called him), our barman, was a classic cool dude and was great to share a few waves at Tikus with. Overall, the place needs some TLC, but an amazing part of the world in which we will be back again. Alex cheers for the beers for 700 USD. Is that a record? They were appreciated by all the boys. To our captain, I will never forget our playgrounds ride home. Such a great work from all aboard, I will leave it at that. Cheers Perfect Wave and Aloita!

One of my best holidays has been in Aloita. We were the only guests and everyone was so nice to us, not only for the first couple of days but also after other guest arrived too. The staff are really caring. We have to give a special mention and thanks to Flavio from "The Perfect Wave" who took special care of us. Not only he is an incredible teacher and surfer, but also he is an amazing person caring about everyone. He helped us so much and I got one of the best moments of surfing with him, giving me amazing tips. Also special thanks to Dan also from the "Perfect wave" , the diving instructor who took us in one of the best diving adventures diving to 40 meterers and make it to the shore after a big storm. Grant Davies, the photographer took amazing pictures of us, he's so amazingly good. Hatsumi is always smiling and Terri with his magic tricks. Special mention to Pepep, Lelep , Suzanne and husband for being so nice to us. And Alexandro and Rahulita specially for helping us to organize the trip back after the cancellation of the ferry. They were extremely helpful. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star is that there was incertitude due to some business decisions going on during the sale of the place. I hope the place finds a buyer and doesn't close as it's amazing. A true paradise I hope I can go back to.

We spent 7 days at Aloita on a surfing trip organized by The Perfect Wave and it was just amazing. We did stay in the surf cabin so it was a little less in comforts but really after a day of surfing all you needed was soft bed. The food was amazing being a buffet, I thought it might lose its taste but every meal was so tasty and beautifully cooked and had a great variety. They also made their own Sambal which was out of this world! We wanted to take it home but couldn't.The surf guides Terry and Falvio had great knowledge of each surf spot, and took into account our surfing levels. The Spa was a little run down and needs a renovation, the Bar was great way to spend the evenings, with pool and ping pong tables to pass the time. All the staff were very friendly.
