I really enjoyed my time at oasis. I stayed at La Barca and the location was great, and since there were a lot of other oasis students it gave it a feeling of community. The rooms were all clean, and they would clean them about every two days.
The surf classes were wonderful. All the instructors are friendly, and patient people. I got a lot of feedback and my surfing improved quite drastically over the course of 8 days.
The whole staff was great. Roger, the owner and founder, was very kind and made sure everyone was taken care of.
My experience was very positive and I look forward to returning.

"Oasis Surf School was great!"
My instructor's name is not on the list, but Ivan was a patient and very chill instructor. The accommodations were perfect and convenient to be able to walk to school every day. Our Spanish classes were also accommodated to our skill level, which I thought was perfect.

"Great experience "
Had a great time at Oasis and was very happy with everything. Beautiful location very close to the beaches and a nice and clean room. Everybody was very helpful and friendly doing their best to give you a good experience. Surfing was fun and also good to learn for a beginner like me. Had a great instructor (Juan de Días) who was very kind and gave great instructions! Can definitely recommend and would come again.

"Surf camp review "
Friendly, experienced instructors who always gave excellent advice when out on the waves.
The photo shoot session and feedback on improvements that could be made was a good bonus.
The front of house staff were always helpful at the front desk, who always kept you updated with the various surf times and activities going on.
Great surf boards, leash and rash guards.
Good transport to surf locations, which the staff always choose depending on the weather and time of the day.
Accommodation was clean and comfortable and always kept tidy with the cleaning staff/gardener.

"Amazing surf camp!!!! 10/10 ! I loved everything !"
Amazing surfing experience! This camp is really well organized and full of great energy! I love how the lessons are 2 students max. My surf instructor: Oscar (Patola) was absolutely brilliant! He met me at my level and saw quickly where I needed guidance. I’m amazed at his expert knowledge of waves and how he always chose the best waves for me to catch. I felt really safe as he made sure I didn’t drop in on other surfers or catch waves too late. His constant feedback after every wave helped me improve my skills so much in just one week and really boosted my confidence. All the other students were super happy with their instructors too which shows what a great surf camp this is. I didn’t take the Spanish lessons but I know someone who did had trips to the market plus other interactive fun lessons. Betty on reception was wonderful and so accommodating with all my requests - like adding extra surf lessons at short notice. The accommodation I stayed in was excellent too (mango surf house) - it was peaceful and comfortable with a bit more privacy and just a short walk from la Barca where evening activities took place. Sol met me when I arrived and Roger went out of his way to come by bike to say goodbye to me when I left. Communication was fast and helpful from the start- thank you Scarlett! This place felt like a family and they really take care of all their guests! I will definitely go back and for longer next time! If you are not sure, just book here- you won’t be disappointed!
