"Amazing 4 Days."

Out of season experience, a great time to come to San Clemente as it was mentioned prior to the trip to me. I might even come back a bit later in November/December. The waves are fun, the town feels very local and can almost win the bunk house for yourself!

"Great experience!"

The instructors Todd and Sebastian were so friendly and enthusiastic throughout! They were so helpful and really took care of myself and my friend who had no surf experience. The food is amazing and the staff are all so friendly, they couldn't have done more. I would definitely recommend Nomad's and would love to return one day! :)

"Fantastic time"

I've gained a new passion appreciation for surfing based on the patience of my instructors Todd and Sebastian.

"Will come back! "

The coaches were always helping during, after and before the lessons.

They were interested in what else you’re doing.

The bonfire at the beach was great to get further insights into the coache’s lives and there surfing “history”.

They gave tipps for upcoming travels.

"Good times!"

Package was perfect, the ladies at the restaurant are truly wonderful, and the food was delicious. Room were all unique and inspirational in regards to all the wonderful pictures, should be a art gallery. locations could not be better, surf instructors/guide were over the top super wonderful and accommodating, The actual town and people of San Clemente made this week a most memorable week, each day was full of adventure.

We were so lucky to “find” Nomads Hotel on Tripadvisor! My teen DD and I spent three days there on a trip to meet Bethany Hamilton! It was the perfect surf, beach place. We absolutely LOVED our room – the Bali Room – which is beautiful and huge! So comfy with room to spread out and a delightful bathroom. Beautiful artwork and objets d’arts from around the world. We loved being able to walk to the Pier as well as upstairs to the Canteen (reviewed separately) – and a great restaurant called Vine. Sean is a personable, helpful, cool host! What a cool place!

Awesome spot to stay, we had 10 nights in the USA from Australia, we booked 2 nights as we wanted to travel around. We found the staff, service, price, gorgeous location and Nomads canteen so great we stayed for the whole 10 nights! We travelled to Disney land, San Diego, Venice Beach, Laguna and Huntington Beach all from Nomads. Would totally recommend, can’t wait to go back.

They made special accomodation for us at the last minute, and we felt totally taken care of. Personable, down to earth, and generous owner Sean made our experience taking kids to surf SoCal (from Santa Cruz) extra special. He and the hotel generally are an example of the surf community at it’s best. Clean & well amenitied room was perfect for our tribe of 5. The variety of rooms they have for families, couples, weeklong or overnight is impressive. They got it all! And good food, too. Sure didn’t mind that beer upon arrival after many hours of driving… a nice touch indeed.

My wife and son just stayed for a night at in the Bali Room at Nomads, between surf days at San Onofre. It’s the perfect spot. A brand new room with a great vibe and all you need to catch some Z’s between sessions. The Canteen upstairs is unreal, with plenty of beers on tap and and outdoor patio to enjoy the sunset. Try one of the Poke bowls for a little taste of paradise. The shops on El Camino Real are only a short walk away, and the Pier is just down the road. This is the spot if you’re looking for something casual and comfortable in San Clemente. We’ll be back for the next swell. P.S.: Epic surf shots throughout the hotel take the island vibes theme to another level. Very cool.
