"Quinta D'Anta was Excellent!"
We stayed at Quinta D'Anta for a week, with yoga and surf lessons daily. The classes were always on time, and to a very high standard! We absolutely loved our surf lessons with Marcos!
The accommodation was beautiful, relaxed and cosy, and the facilities were really high standard. The hotel staff were so accommodating and helpful, and made our stay a wonderful. They went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect during our stay. Would highly recommend for a quiet surf week away, with wonderful waves to learn or practice nearby.
We can't wait to go back next year already.

I have never had such a good vacation time :) First of all, I have never seen so beautiful sunsets in my life. Its not related to the review, but I could not not mention it :)
Me and my boyfriend have tried the surfing for the first time. We had experienced instructor Marcos. He is really supportive and explaining everything pretty well. Usually, he was together with us in the water, helping to understand our mistakes and showing how we should stand. Also, I saw him surfing one time (we went together in the good weather further in the waves), he was surfing like in one of this resort advertisements (touching the wave), its so beautiful.
We have also had the yoga lessons every day. First time I have tried the partner yoga, which was an unique experience, because our yoga instructor Leonor could create this atmosphere, during which you could totally relax and enjoy the current moment.
Second of all, its amazing hosts. They were so friendly and kind that I felt really comfortable with them. If we had any question or any problem, they were always helping us. They also has given us many advice about the places we could visit.
Third of all, its really good service. The hotel was rated as 3 stars hotel, but the service was definitely higher than for 3 stars hotel.
I would definitely recommend this place and come there again :)

"Nice active Surf&Yoga vacation! "
We had 6 days surf&yoga package. Due to the everyday activity of surfing and yoga, we became very fit after the holiday.
The staffs of the facility were very attentive, making sure everything works well for you. Also great yoga & surf teachers, massage therapist!!
Wine selection, dinner&breakfast and dessert were very nice as well. Fairly priced and great value for money.

"Just what we were hoping for"
We enjoyed our stay a lot and got the much needed break we were looking for. Super nice team, good food, great room and overall fantastic place, fun activities, highly recommended!
Our room was clean, sunny and included everything we needed. Breakfast and dinner were good, also for vegetarians and the hotel offered everything we were looking for during our stay.
The team was kind, fun to be around and super helpful when we had to change our travel plans and whenever we asked for something. Surfing and yoga classes were fantastic.
The hotel is quite remote but we were looking to get away from the city and so got just what we were hoping for. There is a super convenient shuttle and so getting there was easy and stress-free. There´s not much around but this was absolutely fine for us.
We´re hoping to come back and can only recommend it.

"Nice secluded surf & yoga hotel"
We spent about two weeks at this place. We really liked the modern simple looks and comfort of it, as well as the facilities such as gym and swimming pool. The stuff is super friendly and helpful. You do need a car if you want to stay independent and go to Figueira de Foz for lunch / dinner etc.
from France, April 2019
L'endroit est superbe, le personnel est extrêmement chaleureux, on est accueillis comme de la famille ou des amis. Les cours de surf et yoga sont extras, les professeurs attentifs et qui nous portent, le tout avec humour! Le point majeur de ce séjour est vraiment l'accueil humain et le bien être ressenti. Bref, une expérience inoubliable !
Je ne serai pas sans y retourner !

"Beautiful place, beautiful people, amazing experience!"
The hotel itself is a little paradise on hearth: green open spaces, amazing swimming pool, great facilities (both bed & shower were so difficult to leave because too good!). I was waking up every morning, having my coffee while sitting outside in the porch surrended just by the sounds of birds..isn't just the perfect way to start your day?I can't thank everyone enough to have made my holiday so special, Samuel, Nuno & Nuno, Rui, Juan, Patricia, Sara, Ana, Lisa (she can cook the most amazing homemade Portugues food you'll ever have!)everybody made me feel like home since day one!And both my yoga & surf experience were just amazing!being a total beginner on both activities my primary concern was not to have enough time to get the hang of it at least a little. But both Leonor (yoga) and Marco (surf) were just incredibly patience and supporting, and never gave up on me. Leonor taught me how to listen to my body more, take more care of it on differrent levels, and how through practice and perseverance I can reach result that I never taught possible in such a small time!And surfing with Marco was just as rewarding!so patience and supporting, never leaving my side, constantly pushing me forward (sometimes literally😂) made me appreciate every single moment of it: the falls, the power of the waves, the incredibly tiring pedaling, finally reaching the outside, the silence, the wave coming and all the times I got so close before falling..but when you finally get up..it's all worth it!

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.
