Surfer's Garden private rooms are naturally their highest quality rooms.

Two of their private rooms are located beach-front and include sliding glass doors opening onto the terrace. Their third private room is located in the rear of our structure, with windows facing the property and tree-life. Private rooms will be booked on a "who reserves first" basis. If you are booking a packaged surf trip, and you prefer beachfront accommodation (2 out of 3 private rooms are beachfront) Surfer's Garden recommend you make your reservation early to score the best rooms available.

Private bunk room is cater to Surfer's Garden nightly guests, who want something a little more quiet than a dorm room, but still at a budget price. Their private bunk will consist of a bunk bed. This bunk bed however has a double size bed on the bottom, and standard size bed on top of bunk. Also included is night stand for personal belongings, one rotating fan, one wall fan, and a private bathroom and shower.

Their dorm room consists of 6 beds total (3 bunk beds), a wall or floor fan for each bed, plenty of windows, 12 lockers, nightstands for personal belongings and a shared bathroom and shower.

From the moment you arrive in Panama, you'll be greeted at the airport by a private air conditioned shuttle, and transported through the mountains, jungles, and towns of Panama to Surfer’s Garden lodge's location on the beautiful Pacific coast where you will be welcomed as family. Each day of your stay with them, you will wake up to a cup of rich Panamanian coffee and the sound of untouched nature. Surfer’s Garden will escort you personally via their 22 feet surf panga boat, 4x4 vehicles, or feet (amazing surf right out front) to the best surf available each morning and afternoon/evening. In between surfs you will refuel with delicious chef prepared meals, and re-hydrate with free purified water, coconuts right from our palm trees or ice cold beer. If the panga boat is not being used by package-trip or retreat clients, nightly guests may choose to use the boat to embark on a surf session at a rate based upon location traveled to, and number of people. Panga boat will always be captained by one of the lodge owners, manager, or surf guide. Panga boat will never be operated by guests or non-employees. Surfer's Garden will not operate the panga boat during dangerous weather or ocean conditions. The safety of our guests is our highest priority. Refunds will not be given for canceled boat trips (due to weather or dangerous conditions) during a packaged trip.

Here at Surfer's Garden, you will enjoy fresh, healthy, and tasty food in between your surf sessions, various adventures, or hours spent in the hammock with a book. Their dishes are created using ingredients that are locally sourced, and are prepared fresh for you each day by their knowledgeable and creative chefs. Surfer’s Garden prefers to focus on quality, not quantity. For this reason you will not find a menu (other than breakfast) within our lodge, as they prefer to select and prepare 3 delicious meals per day, with dish selection based upon guest requests, available ingredients (some are seasonal), etc.

Finish off each day in paradise with a sunset surf, a beer on the ocean-front bluff, yoga, or with a good book and glass of wine in the hammocks. Mix in some other activities such as spear fishing, coral reef snorkeling, exotic waterfalls, and more.

  • Review by Leonard G from New York

    "The name, Surfers' Garden, says it all. Beautifully located overlooking the Pacific, surrounded by palms, the Surfers' Garden is an oasis for surfers and other ocean-loving adventurers. Sunset and sunrise views are fantastic, as well as views of the neighboring islands and mountains. The accommodations are a bit basic, ranging from shared dorm rooms to private doubles with ocean views. My wife and I stayed in an ocean view double. The air conditioned room was adequate, the bed comfortable, and the view very nice. It was also nice to be able to check the surf from my bedroom and walk a few steps down to the waves! Surfers' Garden has both a communal kitchen and restaurant. Like many hostels, the Garden's communal kitchen could use more utensils and cookware and a little more attention to housekeeping, but it was nice to have access to a fridge and stove. Vegetarians, my wife and I did our own cooking, but the Garden's menu looked appealing, a nice combo of international offerings, and at very good prices. The breakfasts also looked like a good bargain. The owners are great, friendly, courteous guys. They are environmentally aware and make a real effort to run an environmentally friendly business. It was also a pleasure to surf with them and share some old school surf etiquette. One thing to be awre of: the town of Mariato has had problems with adequate water supply during the dry season. The Surfers' Garden has its own well, but it's good to check the water situation when you book."

  • Review by Suentony from Canada

    "My wife and I stayed 5 nights at the Surfers Garden in a private beach view room and enjoyed our stay. We were very lucky and had the place to ourselves. The location is excellent with great views of the reef surf break making for an easy check of conditions throughout the day. The sunsets were stunning. The staff was great and friendly and the on site meals were more than satisfying. The highlights of our stay were a day trip to Isla Cebaco for surfing and snorkeling as well as 2 consecutive nights of phospherescents in the ocean surf. This place is definitely worth a visit!"

    "Surfers Garden, with steps to the beach, overlooking a surf break, has modern functional rooms with A/C and ceiling fans. There are some doubles with en suite bath, a dorm, shared kitchen, common room, bar & food service. There are outdoor tables, hammocks and sofas for guests to watch the waves & sunset/sunrise over the water. The staff is generous with advice & helpful when problems arise--as during our stay when there was a water shortage. I like the quiet time policy (11 PM to 7AM); hoteliers in Pedasi ought to adopt it too. However, like many surf hostels I've stayed in , the shared kitchen here, though it has a full size fridge, spring water dispenser & two burner stove, is poorly equipped to handle the transient population. So, iff you're planning to cook for yourself, I suggest packing a camp kit of pot, plate, cup, tableware, as well as food supplies. There are no shops or restaurants nearby, but construction is underway so this will undoubtedly change ."
