    "This was the first time I've been on a guided surf trip, and it was fantastic. The guys at the mint tea exceeded my expectations - great company, food, accommodation, and always finding great waves. The accommodation is simple but lovely. Three meal per week at the hotel are always delicious and plentiful (especially tuna tagine - massive chunks of fresh fish!). I'm definitely planning on staying with them again, as I cannot imagine a better way to squeeze so much surfing into such a short time, and takes all the stress out of guessing where will be working best."

    "Stayed with Courtney and Moncef for seven nights with my wingmen Pete and Alex.There is not enough stars to rate these guys.The best way to describe the stay is simple "You Surf" they do the rest. Abdul and Unis are expert surfers and guides and get the forecast bang on every time and take you to the best spots at that time. We all loved our room in the apartment overlooking anchor point, it had everything we needed. If anyone is planning a Moroccan surf adventure then 'book' don't 'look' with mint surf......forget the rest go with the best."

    "I've now visited Mint Surf twice and am planning a third trip. Great organization, wonderful teachers; Courtney is always available to help with any questions. Have stayed in the bottom and top apartments and both are great - any issues (minor) are always dealt with immediately whilst out surfing for the day."

    "Second time back after almost four years and it's even better. Newer lodging right on the water, excellent guiding, and effort to get you to the spots that are working that day. The staff makes sure everything is easy and straightforward. Can't wait to go back!"

    "My third stay with Mint Surf, and it just confirmed once again all of the great things I already thought about this company. Courtney was so helpful in organizing everything, including going the extra mile to arrange a birthday cake for my girlfriend on her birthday. Thank you again! She was also flexible in changing our airport transfers after we missed our outbound flight. It must be hard work to juggle all the guests' requests, but she does a really great job of it. Similarly, Moncef and the other surf guides were really great once again. We were taken to the best spots each day, and I really feel like my surfing improves each time I visit. I know that others I was surfing with feel exactly the same. More importantly, I had a lot of fun both surfing and socializing with other guests, and that's what this kind of holiday should be all about. Accommodation was great, it's lovely to check the surf in the morning with a cuppa, and the food was also excellent. Packed lunches are provided each day to cure your surf-induced hunger, and evening meals are either in the hotel / surf camp, or out at a local restaurant. Get the mixed fish at Le Spot, thank me later. All in all, another great holiday at an unbeatable price, with fantastic people. If you want to ask me any questions, I'll happily answer!"

    "Full optional service, from the arrival till departure airport. I felt like at home. I really enjoyed surf trips with Moncef, telling us where to enter various surf spots was very useful. We surfed in a different spot every day, and never found anything but good waves. Cheap, with lunch and part of dinners included. Courtney and Moncef really know how to do their job, and will come back next year!"

    "Thank you so much for an amazing week. You couldn't have been more accommodating. Picking surf breaks that challenged but were still achievable. Brilliant hospitality going above and beyond the call of duty in lending towels and clothing when our bags didn’t arrive. Thoroughly action packed to just the right level. Equipment and guides were first class. We will definitely be back."

    "Easy relaxing week, from pick up to drop off at the airport, Mint took care of everything. We stayed in the apartments which were great value for money option with three sharing. Hired boards which had the benefit of trying a couple of new boards from the big selection on offer and avoid the hassle of transporting our own. Not too much swell during our stay but Moncef took us north and south in the search for waves and we had a couple of good days up north. Excellent evening meal arranged by Courtney too. Will definitely visit again with Mint."

    "The best conditions I have ever experienced! Very warm and homemade atmosphere. Almost all 24/7 you are supported and accompanied, from morning surf van pick up till evening diner. Trainers are cool, very friendly and know their stuff in riding. They have all surf gears for every level of guest's request. Yoga lessons help to stretch your body and relax after busy day. And the view from apartments is nice and clean too, the best in town."

    "Courtney and Moncef made everything so easy. We shopped around for camps in Taghazout, and Mint Surf was by far the best value option. It was such incredible value for money, and it was such a personal experience. We were upgraded to a flat because the rooms were all booked, which was huge. The guys were all so lovely, it felt more like going to stay with family friends, and from other guests that were there it seems like people often return - we certainly will be. Moncef was an incredible surf guide. We would pitch up at the nearest spot, get out, and have a look and he would say, let's check out this other spot. we would drive there and it would always be working. He went above and beyond to get us waves, even doing some really early morning sessions because of the winds later in the day. And was just a great guy to chill out with. We had a couple of really fun sessions with him toward the end of the week when he came out with us. Turns out he's not such a bad surfer either. Moncef and Courtney were telling us plans of a new space they were planning to open in town, I can't wait to go back and check it out! Fantastic experience all round, thank you so much for a great trip."

    "Had a brilliant week with Mint Surf, Courtney and Younes went out of their way to make my experience the best they could and totally exceeded my expectations! Hoping I can go back at some point. Stayed in the top apartment which has great sea views and was clean and comfortable, just a short walk from the main area of Taghazout. I went in May and it was a perfect time for me too, the waves are a lot smaller compared to the peak winter months and it was ideal since I was a beginner!"

    "My second holiday with Mint Surf and third time in Morocco overall. I stayed in the apartments in Tagazhout, took the middle studio apartment which was really spacious, clean, had great sea views literally looking out on the ocean below plus a good kitchen with all the facilities we needed to make breakfast each morning. We ate out every night which was great for socializing with the whole group and discovering new restaurants, a full belly cost us between £3-9 each evening depending on how full you wanted to be. Lots of fresh fish and tagines on offer as well as western style meals if you wanted it. The surf camp element was the best part for me; the instructors/drivers had great knowledge of where would be working best for the day and so for our van of competent surfers we enjoyed great waves most days despite the April winds and low swell at points. The lunches provided as always were great. The service was brilliant in terms of the commitment to finding us surf and hosting us in the evening. I've already booked to go back in seven months time! I would wholeheartedly recommend the camp for its great service, the awesome crowd of people I've met on each holiday and how cheap it is too compared to the other providers in Tagazhout. Wouldn't go anywhere else."

    "We had no expectations when arriving in Morocco, but Mint Surf staff made sure we want to return! Prior to our arrival, everything was sorted out smoothly and our emails and concerns were answered promptly. The apartments where we spend first five nights of our vacation are wonderful, with a view over the ocean, warm water, comfy beds, nice bed linen, and fully equipped kitchen. Also, towels were provided. Downstairs and round the corner, you will find small shops and cafes to buy groceries when needed. Last two nights we spent at Hotel Taghazout Art. It is a clean and modern hotel with an awesome rooftop terrace. The double room was really small and had no proper window, which was a small minus. Breakfast is really basic with coffee or tea and white bread, jam, or butter and some pancakes, but still okay. We had the beginner surf package and were really taken good care of by the instructors! With their laid-back yet professional attitude, they made sure we got a memorable surf experience and did progress every day of our holiday. They did good work on finding the best and less crowded spots to surf, and the groups were small so we got personal guidance.The packed lunches and dinners are good, transfers to the airport and beaches work well and everything was professional. We can highly recommend Mint Surf for anyone going for a surf adventure in Morocco."

    "This was my first visit to Morocco and Agadir, but definitively not my last! Courtney was very helpful with answering all sorts of questions before our arrival and during the week. It was much appreciated that a trip to the souk and a day trip to Paradise valley was organized in addition to the daily surf! The afternoon yoga session with Melanie on the rooftop terrace - amazing! We had a lovely surf camp week with Mint Surf, the whole Mint gang were all super friendly and I think added a nice family vibe to it."
