"Definitely a fun & unique experience!"

Gwen Davis, student from USA

I liked the school very much. I stayed at an airbnb and wish I had stayed at the school instead. I also wish I had done the traveling classroom, which many of the students were in the process of doing (they were in the last week out of four weeks together... they were a very tight-knit group because of this) and seemed to love.

Actually the couple of us that were not in that felt a bit left out... it definitely seemed like a great way to bond and learn.

My morning teacher was excellent and my afternoon teacher was very good.

No one knew I was coming- I wasn't on the list and my payment didn't show- but eventually I was able to pull up the emails and we got it straightened out.

All in all, a good experience. :)

"Great experience, I would go back"

Benjamin Buss, student from USA

I had a very good experience at Spanish by the Sea. The teachers were very friendly, the dorm beds were comfortable, kitchen was very adequate, and bathrooms were nice enough. The owner Ingrid is a very impressive woman. To anyone who comes to the school, I hope for your sake you get to meet her.
