My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our girls trip to Blue Surf Sanctuary. I had surf lessons every day, and friend did yoga just up the street. We were very impressed with the accommodations and the welcoming Blue Surf staff. Pablo, the onsite concierge, was a sweetheart and

our Family of 4 (kids 12 and 9) stayed in Sereno for 7 nights. It was perfect for us and we loved it. The property is on the corner of the main road. So there IS a lot of road noise. If this is something that bothers you.. keep it in mind. Upon our arrival we thought "oh

Had a really nice stay in Armenia, bed really comfortable and large space with a/c. Very noisy corner of the street with car, bikes but white noise after awhile! Pool great, small property but we were lucky (for most of the stay) to have quiet people in the other 3 bungalows.

We stayed at Blue Surf Sanctuary for 5 days. It was way better than we expected in many ways. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. The bungalow was perfect for our family of 4. A short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches we experienced in Costa Rica. A great place

Hi Alissa, I am not sure what you mean. There are 2 airlines, Sansa and Nature Air. Sansa you have to walk outside the SJO airport and take a left at the road, it is the next drive on the left. Nature Air is inside the airport--you will have to ask which terminal. Once in Tambor there are taxis or you can ask your property to arrange a pick up for you. Hope this helps.

Blue Surf Sanctuary is comprised of 4 well-designed and thought out bungalows. While standing at the western edge of the property, you will see bungalows Armonia, Sereno, Pacifico and Tranquilo slightly staggered and equally spaced from one another. The property itself is small and the space is used very well. Bungalows Sereno and Pacifico each have a hanging bed under them. The pool is centered between Sereno and Pacifico. Armonia is farthest from the kitchen and Tranquilo the closest and near the entrance to the property.

"Wifi is faster if you are in a bungalow closer to the common area."
"I'd just say bring earplugs if you want to sleep in...it's by the road and the motorcycle/4 wheeler traffic starts pretty early."
"Armonia most private - away from the entrance/kitchen. Then Sereno. All secluded in their own way because they are raised above compound."
"All the bungalows are lovely"
"The room opposite the pool was a little quieter."
