Immediately we felt so relaxed talking to them and learning about the country as we drove to the resort. Upon arrival we chose...

Words cannot adequately express what an incredible time we had during our stay at Soma Surf Resort. From the moment we set foot on the immaculate property (with breathtaking views) we felt right at home. Casey and Bill (and their three loving dogs) were there to greet us and see us to our room which was beyond comfortable and spotless....

We just got back from our trip to Popoyo, wow what an awesome vacation! Soma Surf Resort and its staff lived up to, and in some ways exceeded, all of our expectations that we had from what we read on Trip Advisor. To make our review easier to follow we’ll break it up into a few different categories. Casey and...

We loved our stay at Soma Surf and highly recommend it. The property was beautiful, staff kind hearted, and the food was delicious. Surfing was so much fun. Wish we had made plans to stay longer. It was a quick flight from Miami. We'll be back, next time with the kids.

Bill and Casey will make sure you enjoy yourself! It's like staying with family. Very rural area but beaches and surfing are close, the food is great, and they make it easy to take day trips. Place has 5 rooms so never feels crowded.

Amazing, amazing, amazing! Soma Surf Resort is 5 stars. The resort is peaceful, beautifully crafted and has amazing food & drinks. The owners and their staff are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. Soma provides expert surf instruction and the Nicaraguan coast has some of the world's best waves. I am dreaming of my return back to Soma.

Soma Surf Resort was one of the best choices we could have made for our first surf trip. Our guide Andrew was very knowledgeable about the local breaks, and helped us gain confidence in surfing different types of waves. The resort itself was amazing and the staff was perfect.
