Steve's got it. Him, Bob, and the crew run one of the best all-inclusive (but not your typical all-inclusive) I've been to. Great people, great food, great location, great surf, it's everything you could ask for. My father and I arrived in Liberia for a week long stay. We're both avid surfers (ended up surfing 4-6 hours per day), so...

The location is gorgeous, with a <5 minute walk to Playa Negra'a beach. The house has a beautiful pool, tons of space, and most importantly wifi and A/C . But, the hospitality and personalized service really...

While I had a few good sessions, besides the one where I broke Bob's board, which he was super cool about by the way, there were so many other...
