We have chosen VNd Milfontes for surfing to escape those masses up north. Admittedly, the waves and beaches up north have been rated highly but we also were interested in the Alentejo region for its authenticity. After internet research we chose Alentejo Surf Camp because of the very good ratings and found ourselves to be more then surprised! We thought... More

I had a lovely time at Alentejo Surf Camp. The staff was really friendly and I've made good friends there. I totally recommend this place! Surf lessons are great and instructors are really patient (trust me!).

Alentejo Surf Camp was a blast. I arrived unexpected and without any available rooms left, I asked Sergio whether I could sleep in the garden with my sleeping back. He allowed me to do so right away and even provided me with his own tent to make sure I was okay. The facilities in the camp are all chilled out... More

I spent a week at Alentejo Surf Camp as a resident yoga teacher running a couple of sessions a day alongside Sergio's surfing classes. The place itself is lovely, conveniently located a 10 minute walk from town in a quiet spot. Rooms are spacious and clean, the garden and pool are two lovely chill-out areas and the living room and... More

As an absolute beginner to surfing, I was a little apprehensive about first going into the water, but Sergio was able to calm me right down - he is certainly an excellent instructor and a really nice guy. He always made sure that everybody in the class was doing OK - really watching out for people, advising us on how... More

Sergio lost his temper with his staff at times which made it a little uncomfortable. The surf lessons had no real start of finish times which was a little unorganised. The place itself and the volunteers were great.

This review was written by a volunteer that we welcomed and than we needed to tell her to leave, she was not really kind and was always in a bad mood and not keen to help us... so we, kindly, decided to ask her to leave! The Surf Lessons are ALWAYS during the best tides and surf conditions, that´s what... More

We booked a room for 3 nights on hostel world and when we arrived Sergio wasn't here. The girl who volunteers here didn't know we were coming as the room was already occupied. We waited for at least 1 hour before knowing that we'll have to go somewhere else. Sergio found a room in a guesthouse (in the attic), a... More

Just stood for an overnighter. Sergio picked me up, then we were out together for dinner and had quite a good evening. Very good breakfast, very helpful, awesome people. Thanks for everything Diane and Sergio! Highly recommended! Didn't take surf lessons but they are both very passionate about it so you should try as well :)
