I had a great stay at Surf Cascais. The rooms are spacious and clean, the beds are comfortable and the bathroom has everything one needs for a great stay. The amenities are gr

at (BBQ, garden and pools!). The location is nice, peaceful and quiet, yet still close to the lively city center of Cascais and of course the beach. A big thanks to David and the staff of Surf Cascais for this great stay!

Best Surf Camp in the area - lovely, modern villa with a great atmosphere, comfy rooms and a beautiful pool area. The Surf Classes offered are perfect for Beginners as well as

Intermediates (special guiding & classes). The Surfspots will be picked by best conditions for the students. Staff is welcoming and super nice, the surf instructors are full of energy and motivating which helps a lot in order to step up your surfing game. Can't recommend this place enough!

I offered a 2 hours surf lesson to my boyfriend for his birthday and it was the most amazing gift! He had a great time, the value for money is more than excellent and everyone

was really nice. Special bonus for the communication between the school and us, a newsletter has been sent a few days before the lesson letting us know about the weather conditions, a very professional gesture. I recommend 100%!

Antje Heitland 1 / 5

Horrible experience! Checked out after one night! Two completely dirty bathrooms for just too many guests. Website promises reduction to 50% occupancy due to Covid-19 – lie!

Rooms were completely full, there was no space at all. Weird atmosphere at the Villa just in general. Also, two of the surf instructors had a really rude way of teaching – didn’t feel good at all. Some of the surf equipment was damaged (big hole in a wetsuit, damaged board). Overall one of the worst experiences ever. Was a complete waste of money.
