    the accomodation was fine and everything else but after booking a yoga and surf retreat months beforehand I found out upon check in that they had no yoga teacher and there would be no yoga. I asked for a refund and was given a nights free acommadation but it still ruined my holiday and left a sour taste in my mouth

    I mean, I booked through 'bookyogaretreats.com' . Yoga would be the minimum I expected

    This was a great trip for the solo traveller. I met so many lovely people including the yoga and surf instructors. The lesson were great fun and extra activities like going for icecream and the sunset tour were a great touch. Sagres itself is beautiful, peaceful and safe and everything you need is close by. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or visit again.

    The yoga and surf trip was great fun. We both absolutely loved it. All was well organized. The hotel is very nice with modern rooms and great location.

    We enjoyed both the yoga every morning as the instructor was great! Surf was great also. Good team of people and all materials were very helpful. Thanks a lot again!

    So I've been to Sagres a couple of times now, and I'd say that this was my favourite. I'm not really into all this online reviewing as you might see from my profile, so I'll keep it to the point. 1) For me, Carlos and Olly were brilliant instructors, unrelenting in their enthusiasm and just damn nice guys. They made this trip for me. 2) The hotel/hostel is really nice, it does exactly what it says on the tin. The rooms are nice and the staff are pleasant. I was near the stairs so it was a bit noisy sometimes.. But I manned up and got on with it! 3) Because Sagres is such a small place, you end up socialising with the other schools so to be honest, it didn't make any difference to me which surf school I chose. 4) You should just go to Sagres. Full stop. 5) I'll shut up now...

    Hi, we initially booked with Wave Sensations as the surf school at our hotel insisted a nine year old was too young to have all day lessons...boy were they wrong ! Jake took to it from the off, mostly down to Carlos, his instructor, whose enthusiasm and fantastic sense of humor were priceless. Over the first two days, Jake's confidence grew and grew. This then continued when Ollie took over on day three for the next three days. Nothing was too much trouble for either instructor, whether it was driving around to find the best waves, identifying the best board for Jake, or pulling him out to the green waves on days where it was difficult for him to get out himself. Both Ollie and Carlos were very patient and genuinely nice guys to be around...they certainly made our holiday, and we will be booking with Wave Sensations again. Thank you so much.

    Just got back from a trip with Wavesensations, so was visiting in the low season. I had three days worth of lessons which were brilliant, Carlos is gorgeous! Brilliant instructor, doesn't try to baby you too much like I noticed some of the other surf schools doing with their groups constantly pulling them out the water and having very structured time schedules, Wavesensations was much more laid back but still attentive which was perfect for me who just likes to get on with it and get help when you need/take breaks when you want. It is worth mentioning that the accommodation you are given is Casa Azul (so look at reviews there too), which is a lovely lovely place, but more of a hotel than a hostel/camp which is fine is you are with people but I was traveling alone with the hope of meeting/socialising with other travelers and found this difficult as this place has no socialising area, reception area or bar or anything like that, you are just given a (very lovely) room, ..but that's it, so i actually ended up paying to stay at a different hostel designed more for travelers rather than holidayers - where I could meet people, but continued doing the surfing with Wavesensations. In high season the surfing lessons may provide an opportunity to meet other solo travelers doing the surfing packages too, but for when I went there was mainly couples that were doing their own thing. So it may be worth bearing this in mind, other than that I had an amazing time :)

    We had a few mix ups with our booking, pick up and lunch. But aside from that Ollie, our instructor was great. He was friendly, knowledgeable and allowed us to work at our pace and what we were comfortable with. Lunch pack was average.

    Friendly, responsible and attentive to everyone. Didn't force us out but was really helpful when we were ready to try again. Will definitely go again on my next trip to Sagres.

    What a fantastic few days learning to surf (mostly falling off) Carlos, our instructor, was the nicest guy you could meet. On the beach there was a very genuine community feel, with other surfers and surf schools.

    Went there for a two-day-first-experience of surfing with my brother. The staff was really kind and friendly. They gave us really good advice. Everything was very well organised.

    Had a fun week with Wave Sensations! Carlos our surf instructor was super helpful, considerate and an amazing guy to have around. He was a brilliant teacher and really easy-going. On the morning that we couldn't surf due to the weather, he took us on a mini road trip to some cool spots and shared all his knowledge on the area with us. I'd booked onto the Surf Yoga package for the week, and had yoga each morning with Rose. She was equally as fantastic, a huge asset to the company. Rose took us to the beach for yoga when weather permitted, and gave us the best start to the day. Her energy and approach to yoga was perfect.

    Carlos-our trainer was really great, very patient, and understanding. He was super easy going and managed to teach us to do some surfing tricks quite fast. In windy days he took us around the area and told us interesting facts and stories. It made a real difference that we could connect on a personal level and make the whole surfing experience even more enjoyable!

    My daughter (11) and I had a great time with Wavesensations. We were absolute beginners and learned very much during one week. Carlos and Alec took care of the kids. They took us to nice places where we were able to learn. We will come back

    I had a wonderful week with Alec and Carlos. The area is great with beautiful beaches and good surf. And if the surf was not as good they took us on nice sightseeing tours!

    I was having so much fun learning to surf and hanging out with the Wavesensations crew in Sagres I decided to stay for three weeks. The rooms were clean, had comfortable beds and were cleaned everyday plus the breakfast was a buffet style so you can eat as much as you like to give you enough stamina for a days.

    The crew is friendly and knowledgeable, equipment is in order and all in all it was a very pleasant experience to learn surfing there. I stood up on a green wave on my second day with no prior experience on any boarding sports.

    We had a great time with Wavesensations last January. Luis, our coach, did his best to teach us into surfing and demonstrated both professionalism and dedication as well as passion and joy of surfing. Accommodation was great and all equipment available and in good shape. Totally recommended for surf experience!

    This week we booked a private surf lesson with our two families with young children. We had a great time with our instructors Alec and Carlos (who looked after the kids). As location Beliche beach was chosen; a good choice, conditions were ideal for us (beginners). The place was also very beautiful. We enjoyed it big time, thanks again Alec and Carlos.

    Great surf school; we were no more than 2 - 7 students all 5 days, while the other schools we met brought a lot of students.

    The surf instructors Alec and Carlos were very engaged and patient with us and took us sightseeing and out at night. Carlos seemed to know almost everyone in town and were a great help and so much fun.Both instructers gave us some good advices and we both improved a lot during the week. Thanks for a great holiday - we would definitely recommend Wavesensations to all beginners! We cannot wait to go surf again!

    My wife and two boys aged 14 & 16 used Wavesensations during our stay at the Martinhal resort. They collected & dropped us off, were punctual, friendly and more importantly they went out of their way to make sure we had a great time even after surf lessons had finished. They took us snorkeling & paddle boarding and nothing was too much trouble. The attention to detail was brilliant and our instructors Alec and Carlos gave clear instruction (Carlos speaks fluent English) and made every attempt to find the best waves. The best part is that we were in small groups with other families, other surf schools often had 20 people in them and you don't learn very much in groups that size. If you are thinking of using a surf school in Sagres, look no further, these guys are brilliant.

    Wavesensations made my holiday in Sagres an unforgettable one. The instructors were great: professional, helpful and so much fun. They had endless patience with us beginners and thanks to the fact that we were practicing in a small group, they could pay a lot of attention to every single one of us, giving us personal instructions to improve our skills. In the evenings the instructors showed us the nice places in Sagres. Thanks to Wavesensations & their staff we had so much fun. We went home with a countless amount of wonderful memories and a newfound love for surfing. Thank you so much Wavesensations! PS: Don't forget to put tons of sunscreen on your feet and hands to avoid socks and gloves.
