    From the moment Reda picked me up at the airport I knew I was in safe hands. The staff at the hostel were so friendly and accommodating and encouraged everyone to mingle, there was a real family vibe going on from the offset. The yoga classes were perfectly paced for pre and post surf/excursion and the tuition was second to none, many non surfers left with the surfing bug!

    The shared bathroom on the second floor had the wash hand basin in the communal area, this was mildly inconvenient but I found a work around for my morning wash.

    This was such a fantastic holiday and I highly recommend it! I went on my own, so was a little apprehensive, but there is such an incredibly warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere that I felt part of the group very quickly. The yoga is perfect, and the surfing was great! The instructors are fun and very patient. The best thing is eating each meal together, and getting to know each other over dinner. This was one of my favourite holidays and i highly recommend it!

    None!

    I had the most wonderful time, I can't say enough good things about my experience at Surf Coast. I stayed there over Christmas and was treated like a guest in their home! The food was plentiful and delicious!! OMG the beef, apricot and prune tagine!

    When I arrived they took me to a cosy little private room on the terrace, overlooking the ocean. The morning and evening yoga sessions were fantastic, with Rachael (the yoga instructor) taking us through a mixture of relaxing and challenging routines. We started one morning with an acro-yoga session on the beach and then ran into the ocean afterwards! There's simply no better way to wake you up and get you ready for the surf!

    The surf instruction was perfection with Muhammad and Frances providing hands-on and knowledgable instruction. They are both such laid back and wonderful people! Every person that was working at surf coast was an absolute gem and I loved how guests and staff hung out together in the common areas, making music, singing and dancing!

    Thank you for a beautiful alternative Christmas experience! I'd love to return again!

    I couldn't manage to get the hot water working in the downstairs shower, but I heard the upstairs one works. A minor issue, because we also had the hammam and ocean to dip into whenever we wished!

    It was one of my best Christmas! I really enjoyed the surf camp. Mohamed and Francis my surf instructors were very helpful. Every morning after wake up i start with the yoga on the rooftop was fantastic as well in the sunset! The instructors made the yoga spiritual a relaxing! Abdulla take care of us with super tastefull foods and he was very kind with everybody. I met many new cool person so really loved everything!

    The location was beautiful. The apartment we rented through Surf Coast was well situated with a stunning view. A very attentive local guarded the place night and day. The yoga instructors were wonderful. The surf instruction was also quite good.

    As a family, we found the main house a bit much for meals. Sometimes there were not enough seats for people, and we found the food monotonous. We all (as did most everyone in the main house) caught a bad stomach bug within a few days of arriving. I wouldn’t say the cleanliness standards are up to par. The yoga location is incredible, but again, there were often too many people for the space. Everyone was nice enough, and with some minor changes I think this place could be amazing. It’s just not amazing as is.

    The surf/yoga instructors were good.

    I felt like there was no host present. There seemed to be a disconnect between host contact and the people that were actually at the hostel. To me it seemed like the actual hosts were absent because they were too busy and they had other people fill in for them- who seemed to not really want the responsibility. There was no offering for other options on daily activities like their program states. Just surf and yoga everyday was the norm. Lunch sometimes seemed like old leftovers. Overall it was a bit disorganized for me and felt like there was no host like other reviews raved about.

    The place was right next to the beach which provided a beautiful setting for the yoga classes on the terrace.

    Everything was provided for the guests including day trips so no need to organise anything yourself.

    The surf and yoga teaching was excellent.

    Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.

    Everything was top notch at Surf Coast Morocco from the yoga taught by Kris/Amy on the beautiful rooftop terrace morning and night, to our awesome surf instructor, Mohammed. Both instructors were patient, and I learned so much about myself. It was the perfect setting to relax and take it at your own pace. You definitely have to go with the flow with things and just embrace the culture because its a super chill place and I had to learn to just trust that it will work out. I was also very impressed with the food at every meal. You definitely won't go hungry and there's always a huge variety of things to eat.

    I came to Taghazout to relax and not have to worry about anything, and that's exactly what happened. The beach house is absolutely stunning and I had my own room on the top floor. I fell asleep to the sound of waves on the beach and woke up to the same sound with brilliant sunshine, it was blissful. Anything we needed was always handled by Reda and he made sure we were always comfortable and well taken care of. He went above and beyond to meet our needs, always driving us to different surf spots and day trips (in the coolest Back to the Future car you have ever seen!), and I can't thank the Surf Coast Morocco team enough for such an unforgettable experience.

    That I didn't book my trip for a longer stay because I didn't want to leave

    Staff were lovely, friendly and very accommodating. The place is clean and has a lovely roof top terrace to chill out and where you can spend time with other guests, play cards, listen to music etc. The yoga teacher was also excellent (and I do yoga).

    The rooms are very basic, it would be great to have at least some shelves or somewhere to hang clothes.

    I loved this surfing experience a lot. Now I am hooked on surfing so million thanks for that :) enjoyed the ocean sounds from my room, falling asleep was never that easy for me! I was well looked after by people working in a camp and felt very welcomed! Going to miss it all!

    I had an amazing time at Surf Coast Morocco. Reda and Julia were super helpful and went way above and beyond what I expected, the hosting was awesome. Samira's food was also amazing and it was great to eat authentic Moroccan food. Mohammed made the surf lessons very fun and really helped me with my surfing. Loved the roof terrace and Julie's yoga classes.

    We missed a few yoga classes at the beginning as there was no teacher available. Not a huge problem as I was more there for the surf.

    Tucked away in an ornate coastal town you will find Surf Coast Morocco perfectly located on beach. Fall asleep every night to the peaceful waves crashing & wake up every morning to the most spectacular sunrises. This location is everything to live for. A true must visit. The staff became more like family to me as I was travelling alone. Reda, Khalid, Mohammed (both of them), surf instructor Abash, and yoga instructors Nastya & Amy. A gentle group who embraces everyone. They made sure that every aspect of my stay was comfortable from food, to linens, to atmosphere, to cultural experiences, to laughs and everything in between. I was inspired and will definitely be back to visit this beautiful country! Thank you so much Surf Coast Morocco!

    It was one of the best holidays. Accommodation is cozy and comfortable. Food is good. But the best part was to meet great people. It was my first surfing experience. I had help and support all the time. Now I am waiting for next holidays to come back there to surf and see again my new friends.

    Super cours de yoga avec Kris sur la terrasse avec une vue magnifique ? Super cours de surf avec Mohammed, très bon instructeur, nourriture délicieuse

    Logement un peu vétuste et peu confortable (une seule salle de bain pour la maison entière, pas de draps ni de taie, d'oreiller, seul un drap housse), vol d'une grosse somme d'argent dans ma chambre (qui m'a ensuite été remboursée quand je l'ai signalé), manager peu sympathique et toujours en retard

    I loved the atmosphere at Surf Coast Morocco. The group was small and the staff took really good care of us and always tried everything to fulfill all our wishes. The days typically started with a morning yoga class and breakfast afterwards. When we were finished we went to look for the beach with the best waves and surfing conditions and stayed there till the evening. Our surf teacher Mohammed was amazing and did an excellent job explaining us everything we needed in order to get started in the water and improve our surfing skills. The evening yoga class usually took place at sunset time with an amazing view over the ocean and ended with a Shavasana under the stars. The yoga teacher Kris was simply the best - she adapted all the yoga classes perfectly to our needs. Being very passionate about what she is doing, she even offered 1:1 sessions for those who have had some injuries or needed special assistance.

    Another highlight was the food, we had a different dish every day and it was always very delicious.

    We only had bathroom, which was a little difficult in the beginning but I got used to it very soon.

    Definitely one of my best holidays. I didn't expect that it would be soooo nice. Perfect organization, perfect food. Thanks to Mohammed who taught me some many new things in surf so I really improved my surf level in 15 days. Thanks to Kris who taught Yoga in a so nice way <3. The beach house towards the ocean allowed me to fall asleep in a perfect mood every night, listening to the waves (and I miss it soo much in Paris), every end of afternoon enjoying the sunset of the rooftop with the others guest and this AMAZING staff team that paid a lot of attention to everyone. We had a looot of fun together and I will miss them (until the next time I come back :D). Every day a new day a perfect day. Go for it guys.

    The village is a nice place for vaction, beach for surfing was really good. My instructor was funny and I enjoyed surfing with him, as a begginer.

    People in the hostel were nice and they helped for everything.

    And food also really nice. Good breakfast and dinners.

    The hostel was fixing things, so it was a little uncorfortable to have people working upstairs.

    Also, as summer is low season, there were not people in hostel, just me and another girl. So I expected to meet more people. Good thing is that I spent much time with local people which also was a good experience!

    I had a great time at Surf Coast Morocco. Reda and Julia are very helpful and really make you feel at home. The atmosphere is very relaxed, lively, cheerful, welcome, open, flexible.

    Samira cooks the most delicious meals (you wont stop eating), Mohammad is the greatest and patient and funny surf instructor and I got great yoga classes from Anna, who is also a wonderful, warmhearted person. Amira is the cutest little surfcoast cat around town.

    Also the trips to Paradise Valley and the Agadir Market made it all together a great week that I definitely will remember. Keep up the good work guys! Love from Holland, Marjon

    My stay at surf coast morocco was great!! The place is amazingly located - couldn't get closer to the sea! It's super relaxed, staff don't feel like staff - more like friends of friends who become your friends. Reda met me at the airport and dropped me off, as well as constant trips to the beach, paradise valley and the souk. Julia is a great host and there's a cute cat.

    Anna taught yoga every morning and evening - she was fantastic. I didn't take surf lessons but Mohammad gave me some tips. Samira made all the food - it was all delicious and there was plenty.

    There are some tiny things that could be made even better, like maybe having more attention paid to lessons for non-beginners. It would be great to have something to keep the Mosquitos away when sleeping - maybe mesh to put over windows at night? and I think there are plans for a movie night on the terrace once a week... all in all it's a fantastic place with really friendly people and I'm really grateful for the week I spent there!

    An easy going and quality place. I loved my time with Surf Coast Morocco. It is a fantastic setup right on the beach. The food, surf, and yoga were all brilliant. I would recommend staying here. The place really has that personal easy going touch.

  • Celine

    My retreat with Surf Coast Morocco was great. They took really care of everything, driving us to the surf lessons everyday and arranging everything that we may need. Surf lessons were great. We were changing surf posts almost everyday. Yoga was taught mainly in a lcoation nearby where you could hear the sound of the waves so that was a perfect location fo meditation. It would probably have been better if we could have had the same yoga teacher during the whole week but at the same time, that gave us the opportunity to explore different teaching styles. And one important thing: the cooking from Ahmed (who was cooking us dinner every day) was delicious.

  • Yvonne Newfoundland, Canada

    My time in Morocco with Surf Coast Morocco was amazing!! Reda took such great care of me, making sure I was in need of nothing the whole time I was there. I'm spoiled!! The surfing was great and he took me to different beaches almost every day. The yoga was a perfect match with the surfing. The food was delicious, the accommodations were perfect and I met so many people from all over Morocco, Europe and Canada. Can't say enough about Reda and the great retreat he provided. He's so good at his job and a great guy!! The staff at the hostel were amazing, especially Ahmed!! The surfing instructors were so much fun, Khallid, Yusef (spelling?)!! One of my top vacations and I would highly recommend it to everyone!!

    Had one of the best trips with Reda at Surf Coast Morocco, he went over the top to be accommodating to all requests and help to arrange other activities outside of what was included in the package. Youssef our surf instructor was absolutely great at giving out pointer and even showed off a few of his own tricks. The day trip to Paradise valley was one of the high points of the entire trip. Could not more highly recommend this trip.

    My stay with surf coast morocco was amazing. I was there for two weeks at the beginning of September and I had the best time. I was looking for a yoga retreat and found this one which offered yoga and surf so I thought I would give surf a go too and it was the best decision I took. I wasn't very lucky at the beginning as I was supposed to land in Agadir and my plane got diverted to Marrakech because of a sandstorm.The manager of Surf Coast Morocco, Reda, waited for me in Agadir from 5pm to 1am, he didn't even seem to be annoyed, he drove me to the hostel in Taghazout and stopped on the way to buy me food as I hadn't eaten all evening. The people in the hostel were so nice, they cooked amazing traditional Moroccan food every evening and they even asked what we wanted to eat and followed our requests. It was delicious every time.

    We had yoga in the morning at 8, then breakfast, then we would go surfing from about 10:30 to 4 pm, then yoga again at 6. One day I had surfed for so long (I chose to do that, they let you rest whenever you want) that the next day my legs were so sore I couldn't surf. Reda drove me to a massage place where my muscles could relax while the others went surfing. He was always doing his best to make everyone happy and he always drove us wherever we wanted to go.

    I didn't feel like I was part of an organized trip as everyone was so cool, I felt like I was on holidays with friends.

    We had a lot of different yoga teachers which allowed us to explore different styles of yoga.

    I can't believe I started with any experience at all in surfing and after two weeks I had learned how to turn and I surfed a couple of big waves.

    I am really happy I did this retreat. It was the perfect holiday: sport, fun, some night outs and I got to discover and experience Moroccan culture which is beautiful. People are so nice and welcoming. Reda and the others at the hostel take very good care of their guests.

    I didn't know what to expect, when I started my trip, and a lot of things were different to what I imagined, but I had the best time on a vacation EVER. I was a little confused after my long journey when I was dropped off at the hostel, which looked different to the pictures of the retreat, I saw before. But since I was traveling alone and booked a shared room, it was the best way to feel like being part of the community from the first moment on. I stayed a whole week to do some Yoga and learn how to surf but I got a lot more. Reda was the best host, you can imagine. We were talking every day about what to do or what to see and he was taking care of everything. It felt like having a djin with unlimited wishes. We had trips to the souk, hammam, paradise valley or a party at a nearby beach hotel. We always had a great time at the beach, although it was off-season and you had to be patient to wait for the good waves. The food at the hostel was always fresh, local and very tasty. Every night we finished dinner with a tea ceremony and the cook was always interested in what cravings the guests had (since I'm a dessert-person he made us fruit salad some of the nights!) Although I was travelling alone for the first time in my life, I never felt alone or lonely. I met so many nice and interesting people and everybody else felt the same hospitality as I did. I will for sure come back some day.

    Taghazout is magical. It was my favourite place in Morocco by far. The hostel I stayed in was less than a 10 second walk to the main street, from the terrace you could check the surf at 3 different beaches. The atmosphere was great too with communal dinners every night with the most delicious Moroccan meals being prepared so freshly. What made this experience so outstanding was the unbelievable hospitality that was shown to me by all the staff including Reda, the surf instructors, the hostel staff and the yoga instructor. As a solo traveler they welcomed me so graciously and made me feel like family. They were able to help me with anything I needed and were so happy to do so. I was driven anywhere I needed to go including which beach was best to surf on that day. Some of my best memories are cruising down the coast with the windows down and a stack of about 5 boards on the roof of a small car. I spent a day out in Paradise Valley jumping of the high cliffs into deep blue swimming holes. On the way out there we stopped in at an Argan oil farm and saw how it is made which is something you need to do if your going to by any of this magical oil. The surf in Taghazout was perfect for me to learn on when I was there (in May) and the boards and wetsuits were in good condition. Taghazout is such a small place it only took a few days for me to feel like I already knew most people. Overall this was the high light of my trip and I loved every second of it. It had a very relaxed feel so I could choose what I wanted to do each day. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Morocco.
