I like the organisation at Maverick. You feel like belonging to a community but at the same time people are autonomous and free to join / not join events / dinners, etc.

The staff is amazingly nice and fun. Lisa the yoga instructor really makes a good job and is a very nice person. Finally, customers are a balanced mix of friends / solo travelers / families of all ages, which allows to meet very different people.

"Very relaxing - apart from the surfing!"

The Maverick is lovely, great facilities (kitchen, bathroom, dining area, pool area, gardens and winter garden). Very clean. Staff all helpful and friendly. The location is rural but that's fine for me as it made it more relaxing than being in the town. Breakfast was lovely - good choice. Surfing was great fun - class sizes small which helps for beginners! They also have a great yoga studio and we had a yoga class on the beach which whilst cold was really beautiful.

"Schöne Location - leider ungepflegt"

Eine wunderschöne Anlage mit allem ...gut durchdacht und mit tollen Ideen sportlich wie für das Auge.

Der Highlight für mich waren die Yogastunden mit LISA - sehr sehr gut - eine wunderbare Yogalehrerin - danke dir Lisa.

I had an amazing time at the Maverick. The staff are extremely efficient, welcoming, and friendly. The guesthouse is beautiful, so well designed, and extremely clean. The breakfast is delicious and filling. The gardens and sun-deck are wonderful. The pool is really luxurious. The surf lessons at Up Rise Surf School are tailored to individual needs and really helped me improve my technique. The yoga teacher was great and very attentive. Overall a wonderful stay and very good value. I can't wait to go back.

House and room brand new and high standard. Very well cleaned. Nice swimming pool and many other activities possible. Nice place for children too. Nice view. But lack of service at the breakfast. And poor quality of the bed cushions.
