from Russia, August 2018
The Quinta d'Anta was chosen because it has a surf school and comfortable accommodation.
We stayed at the hotel for one week. It was amazing.
The hotel is located in Miorca it tooks 20 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean by car. For someone, it can be a little problem, but we had a car.
The location is silent, there is no nightlife and noisy roads.
The hotel has a huge private territory that consists of a pool, pool bar, padel tennis, surf school, a big parking, a place for yoga and massage.
There is no crowd of tourists, and it's perfect. The atmosphere is very friendly like a small family, all of the guests to communicate with each other. Everyone of the staff was ready to help us.
The room was clean and comfortable and has a good balcony.
Meal. Breakfast was very good which consist of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, ham, cheese, yogurt, coffee, fresh juices and some desserts and etc. Everyone can find what he or she likes.
Dinner has four or five main dishes but each one was delicious. One time was BBQ evening, it was perfect.
For 2-3 days we learned to catch a wave and began enjoying the surfing. Unfortunately, we didn't have padel tennis lessons, because we had not enough time and special shoes for that. Next time we will do it.
I extremely advise that place for people who like activity holidays with comfortable accommodation. As for me, I have found an amazing place and I'd like to come back there again. Thank everyone from the team for that holiday.

"Perfect place for a surf vacation"
This was my best experience so far with surf camps. This is a perfect place to learn how to surf and to develop your skills. The instructor is very attentive and always provides you with a feedback. You have one instructor per 4 people. Every evening you have a possibility to see you surfing on a screen (photos) that is very useful for the analysis of mistakes. The personnel is very attentive and nice. Food and wine is just amazing. I really recommend this place.
from Afghanistan, July 2018
Everything is top quality. Food, surf, padel, hotel, service. Everything is accesible and easy thanks to the wonderfull staff. Never any problem in arranging things, very flexible. very relaxing place to hang out at after a days of surf a very charming and quiet area.

"Perfect place for rest and surf"
This was first time for me to surf and everything was perfect. Sympa atmosphere, clean and cozy room with modern decoration, comfortable drawing room for everyone. The food for every meal was nothing less, more than parfait. The most important part, every staff: they really welcomed me, helped me in every aspect and let me feel like at my own home. I could take a rest without any difficulty. For surfing? It was awesome thanks to the adroit coach who helped me so much. You can enjoy surfing, pedal tennis, biking, everything. I will visit the place again definitely with a car so that I can visit Coimbra and Porto, not far from the site as well. But just staying at the hotel itself is a perfect choice. Thanks for everyone again.

"A surf holiday that exceeded my expectations"
This is the first time I ever tried to surf and I must say that this vacation really exceeded my expectations. The hotels' location was outside the city limits but was close enough to the city (15 min) to be visited by taxi. At the hotel itself, there were enough activities to do, so one wouldn't get bored. Next to surfing one could go biking, relax next to the swimming pool, play Paddle and more. The surf lessons would start at an appropriate time so that you had enough time for breakfast before leaving.
The hotel had its own restaurant so ordering anything during the afternoon or at night was no problem. Plus the price value relationship was perfect. At dinner time they had enough choices in my opinion so going outside the hotel for dinner was not necessary.
About the surf lessons, I can say that the lessons were well taken care of. The instructors were knowledgeable about the subject and really help you to succeed and to get better.
I would really recommend this hotel to any one and I will definitely go next year to continue my lessons in order to be able to surf much better.

"Good Breakfast and familiar people"
Everyone from the hotel stuff and surfing lessons was such friendly, we really enjoyed our stay there. It was very familiar and everything is new and clean. Also Billiard, Paddle (Tennis) and loan of bicycles was included, so you can explore Figueira da Foz (e.g. the Blue Lagoon).
I would recommend it to erverybody.

"Awesome staff and place"
Gotu ( surf coach ) and Rui ( owner) really there for you help you and show you around . The rest of the staff amazing and the hotel really nice .
from Estonia, June 2017
The hotel is great - rooms are perfectly clean, food is delicious, there are lots of activities onsite that can be used for people who likes sports: padel, bikes, pool, and the main one - surfing!!! :) our surfing teacher was excellent - he is professional instructor that will inspire you and give this feeling of confidence and safety on the water, if you are a beginner :) ..
The staff attitude towards the guests is something I can't describe in words, they treat you very well paying attention to small details and trying to meet your preferences and expectation during your stay, they go extra mile for making the guest feeling like at home. Me and my boyfriend have purchased a surfing package for 6 days which was an unforgettable experience for us accompanied by the great staff attitude, professionalism of the surfing instructor and great hotel amenities.
I have to highlight Mica - our photographer who was doing an amazing job taking pictures during the surf classes, for us as a beginners pictures on top of the waves are worthwhile:))
There are lots lots of small details that have surprised me in a very good way, such as disposable razors in the hotel bathroom , which I never seen in other hotels.
When we went on a bike tour to Figuera De Foz (beautiful city nearby) on the bikes fitted with GPS, staff member Samuel was taking care of us providing us with extra batteries for GPS device just in case and asking for our telephone numbers in case we get lost. Basically these people really take care of you as you are someone special to them, not just as a client who pays them and they have to.
Hotel management is making sure the guest expectations are met by fulfilling the guest's needs and creating a very friendly relaxing atmosphere. Basically, 10 out of 10 for every single aspect! Would definitely recommend it to my friends and hope one day I will be back to enjoy it one more time :)

"ideal place to relax and do surfing"
I'm not young any more, because of that I found this place ideal to try surfing: relaxed, friendly atmosphere of the hotel, competent surf-teacher, the lessons accordingly to my skills and needs, I felt more among friends than a simple costumer.
It was a very modern hotel in a good way. the room was clean and had a very good bed. It was a nice place to stay for a couple for the nights. The distance from centrum was not a problem for us who were coming with a car. The breakfast was excellent and the pool bar in the evening was cozy. It was a superb place!

We had a great time with a clean room, good foods, and good services. We did find the area a bit expensive in comparison to other places but the views made up for it. It was totally recommended.
