"A beautiful place with beautiful people"

Outstanding Food with a different offering for every meal, all fresh/natural/tasty.

Amazing People: Adam our yoga teacher is a great instructor & a great person. The two hosts Emma and Dominika ( sorry if spelling is wrong) go out of there way to make it special for everyone. Every request they happily follow up always with a smile! We were so well taken care of.

Great location close to the beach, very quite and tranquil so perfect for a yoga holiday

Great trips offered incl a trip to the local Hamam

All in all very good value for money

"Wonderful relaxtion"

The yoga was superb and the studio created the perfect atmosphere. The food was sublime. Literally the best vegetarian food I’ve had over a week. The variety and quality was super. Hostess Dominica was lovely and super organised. Surfing was great with super empty beaches and the instructors had great English.

"Sjaan and Elena"

The yoga instructors (Sjaan and Elena) were true professionals. Excellent attention to detail, corrected postures, explained reasons for the postures and gave meaning to the practise. The massages were excellent. It was Sjaan and Elena who made the experience better than expected. I think that this should be acknowledged. I will follow them to Santorini!

The host (Dominika) did an amazing job of settling everyone in, making them feel welcome, was always there when you had a question and made sure everyone had what they needed.

"A sunny break to relax and be a healthy yogi"

Yoga lessons were very good. The shala house, the rooftop, the food, the spirit of the villa, the proximity to the ocean, the service, the kindness of people, the relaxation that come necessarily !

"Great retreat but cold in January and February "

The atmosphere and food were amazing. Our hostess Dominika was very friendly and helpful, we loved her. One of our yoga teachers, Helena, was very good —the right balance between guidance and respect for your limits while stimulating you to challenge yourself. Wifi was OK. The beach is beautiful and perfect for long walks.

I absolutely loved the diversity in everything. The breakfast, dinner, yoga classes as well as the wonderful people staying there. Our hostess was absolutely wonderful and so energetic and smiley, that you could not avoid being affected. After only a few days in the Villa Surya, it felt like I had been there for a year. That's how relaxed you'll be when your day consist of nothing but yoga, good food and total relaxation on either the roof terrace, the beach or in the jacuzzi.

"If you are looking to disconnect, this is the place for you"

The food was outstanding. I had no idea what to expect going vegetarian, but it was so easy, I didn't even miss the meat. The location was very nice as well. It wasn't as busy as Taghazout, so going to the beach was nice and hearing the sounds of the waves and children playing while doing yoga was so peaceful. The staff was also wonderful and I really felt welcomed by the entire group. My goals for the trip was to interact with as many people as possible and improve my yoga practice, which I definitely was able to do, so in this sense the stay was what I was looking for.

Valentina Bolognesi

from United Kingdom, May 2017

The place is nice, clean and near the beautiful beach. Laura the co-host was friendly and helpful (thanks for arranging our boarding passes). I really enjoyed the variety of yoga styles by Sjaan and Katrina. The atmosphere was easy going (there were also ashtrays...and I let go of a fag or two!). The vegetarian food was also good, breakfast and dinner were always different.

"Fantastisch entspannt"

Die Yogakurse waren mit sehr unterschiedlichen Lehrern besetzt und dadurch abwechslungsreich und mit unterschiedlichen Schwerpunkten.

Das Essen wird frisch, lokal und gesund mit viel Mühe und Liebe gekocht.

Flexible An- und Abreise ermöglichen einen Urlaub nach eigenem Plan.

Das Essen war super, die Mitarbeiter alle sehr sehr freundlich, wodurch ein schönes Gruppengefühl im Haus entstand. Die ruhige Lage war perfekt und die Tatsache, dass es jederzeit Kaffe, Tee und Obst gab war wichtig und gut!

Insgesamt tolle Menschen, alle scheinen Spaß an der Arbeit zu haben, wodurch man sich dort rundum wohlfühlen konnte.

De hostess Dominika van de villa was een positieve bom van energie. Onwijs leuke meid en niks is haar te veel. Dat maakte mijn trip nog meer compleet. Ook waren de yogaleraresses Sjaan en Elena ook erg vriendelijk. Ze helpen je goed met je houdingen en staan open om je vanalles te leren.

Het eten is ook perfect. Heel gevarieerd, heel gezond en ze zorgen heel goed voor je. Al het personeel is zeer vriendelijk en ze helpen je graag.

De villa is heel groot en schoon. Elke dag maken ze je bed op en maken ze de badkamer schoon. Het is een hele fijne villa. Ik heb zeer genoten!

"A perfect place for a break "

Alles.

I just loved it. It helped that i didnot set much expectations. I was tired from work, from the dark gray sky, and i went for the blue sky, the sun, the daily yoga exercises, the all-in service. I got that all and that was indeed very comforting. But also, i soon fell in love with the simpleness of life there, in a small village where people still smile from their hearts and where i could still stroke dogs and cats living in open air. There was not much to do and that quietness brought me happiness in such a simple way. The house and its people take very good care of us guests. Not just in a professioanl way like i'm used to in hotels, but more in a kind, sweet way like with family and dear friends. The yoga teachers bring the special spirit to the house, and 3 hours of yoga with their kindness, together with other guests is uplifting. Last but not least, the staff who clean the rooms, prepare food, clean the fountain...i donot see them a lot but always enjoy their gentle kindness when i do.

Interactions with other guests was a big bonus point, though it was not my intention to seek social connections actively. Things flow naturally in the house and among people. It is a place filled with gentle happiness.

Everybody will have a unique experience with this holiday I believe. I am very grateful for mine being so perfect, and wish that you find what you are looking for.

"Beautiful yoga retreat"

My stay at Dfrost yoga- and meditation retreat was beautiful in every ways. The staff was so sweet and serviceminded. The food was incredible delicious. The house was lovely and peacefull. The yoga classes was nice.

"A beautiful place with great potential but poorly managed"

The highlight of my trip were the yoga sessions with Adam. Each class was rich and varied in style and intensity. I also liked that Adam recited us mindful words at the end of each session. I felt good during each class with no exception, even when being weak during sickness.

The beach house is quite nice and well-maintained, with beautiful large terrace, located on the water front and in the cleaner side of the village.

Dinners were varied and hearty, some really delicious (Tajine, barbecue) but lunch was only self-packed sandwiches from breakfast.

Euro is widely accepted by locals at 1 to 10. Payment at the property is possible by credit card, also by cash but with exact amount.

I was very excited before going on this trip and should say that overall I had many enjoyable moments and met great people, however, remained very disappointed with the staff and management’s attitude towards a very serious issue of people getting ill in mass. Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend this retreat to friends. Those who decide to take it should consider paying for surf classes on the spot as illness is highly probable while nobody is flexible to replace the prepaid classes with other activities.

"Great week of strenuous relaxation!"

Yoga classes - went to two a day and they were great. Lots of variety and talked through each move and pose to get the most out of it. Yoga Ryan was helpful and made the classes really enjoyable.

Surfing - the instructors were just great. Ibrahim is a natural teacher - patient, calm, kind, and determined for you to succeed. Hussain was also kind and patient, dedicated to helping us improve and helped with tips and advice throughout the whole day in the water. Kamal was entertaining and pushed us hard.

"Amazing place for totally switching off"

Lovely hosts and yoga teachers, the food is wonderful and the whole atmosphere is really relaxing. They have a great roof terrace with jacuzzi for views of the night sky and the ocean. And I really enjoyed the surf lesson and the hammam- definitely recommended! Went beyond my expectations- the only problem was that I didn't stay longer!

This was my first yoga holiday experience and it was fantastic! I really want to return to this place. Very friendly hosts, a nice group of mixed people (ages, gender, nationality), good yoga lessons for beginners and advanced yogi, very delicious and fresh foods and a comfort accommodation to stay. I really recommend this place!

"An amazing time!!"

The time at Dfrost Yoga and Surf was more than expected. My sister and me spent 8 amazing days in Dfrost Yoga and Surf and we didn't t wanted to leave.

We were surrounded by lovely people!

The Yoga class with Lisa was excellent and we were very happy that we came at that time when she was there. Lisa is a wonderful person, speechless...

The surf instructors are very kind, responsible, motivating and good surf teachers. We felt in good hands. Thank you for motivating us and taking my fear ;-) We had a very good time with you guys. You all do a good job.

Many thanks to everybody working in the house!!

Hope to see you soon!

April 2017. Dfrost Almugar Surf House & Yoga Morocco

We spend 6 nights at Dfrost and it was amazing there. Our Balcony faced the ocean and you could listen to the waves at night which was really calming. The food was great, the staff really friendly and helpful and the surfing was awesome. Stan, out surf instructor took us to some amazing surf spots and the ride was always fun because of Stan´s funny comments ;) He is a great instructor and I highly recommend him as an instructor. The time at Dfrost was amazing because they take care of everything for you. They pick you up from the airport, provide surfboards and wetsuits and delicious food. I highly recommend this place to anyone who always wanted to try surfing and do some relaxing yoga.

April 2017. Dfrost Almugar Surf House & Yoga Morocco

This was my second time at the Dfrost Surfhouse in Taghazout, and I wasn't disappointed. I stayed 4 nights, 2 nights in their premium room in the surf house and 2 nights in one of the apartments. I read in one of the older reviews saying that the beds were too hard, but I had actually told the management myself 2 years ago that they should consider changing their beds, they were way too soft at the time! I find them just fine now. The yoga shala is still my favourite in the world: on a roof top, overlooking the sea, you can hear the waves crashing and you can watch the sunrise during your morning session. I counted my blessings every time I gathered the courage to get up in time for the 7am session! Another improvement I noticed was the all-inclusive breakfast and dinner menus. There were vegetarian and vegan options that actually had protein in them (peas, chickpeas, lentils, etc...) while it used to be mainly simple veggies/salads. I'll be looking forward to my next stay!

I really enjoyed my stay at the Dfrost. The week passed very quickly, with the surf and yoga program. Surfinglessons with surfinstructor Stan were awesome. To be out in the water with a person, who knows the mètier so well and can also explain it very good, improved my surfing considerably. After a day on the beach and in the water, you'd fancy a yoga session to get rid of the tensions in your body. The yoga sessions on the rooftop with Kat were incredible. With a scenic view of the sunset over the sea and guided by Kat's lovely voice, its just easy to relax mind, body and soul. What do you need more? For me as a person, who needs some time to release, the yoga sessions with Kat were wonderful and a relief. The food in the hostel was very delicious too. Two thumbs up for the girls in the kitchen and a big thanks for Mo for serving us beer. 'cause what kind of holiday would it be, without a cold beer after a salty surfsession :) Big thanks too to rest of the staff, with their very friendly service. Our rooms were very tidy and clean as well. I can really recommend the Dfrost Surfhostel and will certainly come again.

May 2017. Dfrost Almugar Surf House & Yoga Morocco

Complete escape and rejuvenation with the opportunity to do as much or as little (as in my case) as you liked. The food/flavours were devine (quantities were huge!) and the hosts could never do enough to help and always with a smile. I liked that we all ate together but there was the freedom to do as you chose, either alone or with others, during the day. Plenty on offer to do or just relax at the villa or on the beach, which is a very short walk away. I am pleased that I went during the quieter period though but this was more for my own personal 'escape' reasons. The yoga instructors were fantastic and helped/encouraged all abilities. Very relaxed, approachable, inspiring and fun. Just the perfect escape - like anything, you make what you want of it, but Villa Surya comes highly recommended for recharging the batteries. Recommended to several friends already. Located about an an hour/15 from Agadir airport but, with the free transfers, this was made easy too, even with my arrival delays. Thank you Mo and your team. Just wonderful! Namaste

Loved doing this yoga retreat with Dfrost. It was the perfect escape from the city. Emerged feeling very zen and healthy. The food was wonderful and Laura and the team managed everything seamlessly, so we were pampered and did not have to lift a finger. Never wanted to leave the beautiful villa surya. The yoga was BRILLIANT - challenging and invigorating. Great extra activities : horse riding, hammam..
