We spent our first surf day with Dantes and enjoyed every second. They picked us up and dropped us off right at the hotel door, got us standing on the boards right away, supplied snacks and drinks and shaded lounge chairs. The instructors were so attentive and helped us progress at our own rate. We all got our own individual instructor. They also spoke English. I loved the day so much I went back the next day and William helped me graduate to a smaller board. They were very accommodating to your holiday schedule and set a very relaxed pace for the day. If I was staying longer I would definitely go back for more surfing with Dantes and recommend them to everyone.
