I took my family of 5 to Monkeys Resort this year after waiting years to surf the Telo Islands. Well, Monkeys did not disappoint at any level. This was by far the best holiday of my life.

Great place to spend time in the Telos. Excellent location, accomodation and food. Consistent surf, excellent guides and more than helpful staff. Thanks to all at Monkeys for a couple of great weeks.

Have just had an amazing holiday at Monkeys! Peter had a blast enjoying the uncrowned surf - hence all the photos. As a non-surfer I too had a brilliant time. Such a quiet relaxing resort with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the surrounds.
