    I loved the place, the people and loved all the activities. The staff are super cool, the surf classes were amazing, and all the extra trips were a great fun.

    I am very happy to choose Algarve for surfing. It's a wonderful place. I miss it now a lot. I think my villa is situated in a good location. There is a hipper market in front of house and our house is not far from center. About 10-15 min.

    For me was uncomfortable a problem of transferring. From Faro to Lagos was simple to arrive by train. But from station to villa I had to take taxi although I wrote an E-mail some hours ago to pick up from the station because I was not sure where is my villa exactly. So the problem of transferring from airport to villa and backwards for me was the acute. I hope they improve the situation in this question.

    The Accomodation is really nice and from the rooftop Terrace you have a Great view over Lagos

    Our surfcamp began with a cold welcome. No one asked about a booking or our names, we were just informed about to split up and have to sleep in separate rooms - no one could expect that one of the beds are already meant for another person - which was when I came back already sleeping in my bed.

    At the next day everybody had its own bed.

    Furthermore, the package price says breakfast included, so you expect to get enough to eat. However, we got cereals with milk, jam and butter (no bread ). When we tried to talk with one of the staff members the reaction was unexpected: it is our fault when someone is lying in our beds it could happen to anyone we should have searched for another empty bed and about the breakfast it was getting better and better in the following days. But are our expectations too high - when we just want some bread, fruits...

    referring to the offer on booksurfcamps.com it was written 5 days of surf lessons- this is incorrect, because you get 3 days with a real surf instructor (outsourced surf academy) and 2 days equipment and a ride to a beach - the offer has to be corrected and be specific, because when you know exactly what is included in your package it is easier to meet the expectations.

    At the end we talked with boss of the hostel and pointed out our points - he got our points and we got some money back.

    In conclusion, the place is nice and some staff members are really friendly but the Organisation and communication is somewhat bad.

      I had a wicked time in lagos staying at 9ninelives. brad the host is a super chilled out guy he made me feel welcome and gave me a good idea what i could do well i was in lagos. well i was there we went on a few surf trips it was great having some one with local knowledge i forget the names of the place we went but brad was able to find some where sheltered from the heavy on shore winds we had at the local beaches of lagos. i also did all the tours that he did from 9ninelives all were great experiences.

      We have been in Portugal last summer, in the end of July:) I was with my friends and some people who I've known before) it was the best summer holidays for me, because of different reasons: 1) it was my dream to try serfing 2) my good friends were with me 3) we could take the scooters and see all the seaside (alagarve)4) we have transfer to serf spots, really beatiful and fantastic places!!! 5) Portugal is the good place to see Atlantic Ocean! 6) we lived in the big house near supermarket where you can buy smth you need 7) every Saturday the organisators of Surf Camp made special dinner for new guests, it was really nice to eat delicias grill food and meet new interesting people;) thank you very much for the possibility to try Surfing, to be with you, to enjoy the ocean, sunsets!!!!!

      Everything was really well organized from the first to the last minute. It was not my first time surfing, but the instructors are always on top of you helping you to improve in every single session. Overall, an amazing time. I can't wait to return.
