The Arrifana Surf Lodge is the best place to learn or improve your surfing! The instructors were super fun but also great teachers. I am finally able to confidently catch and surf a green wave, thanks guys :-) The House itself is cozy and homy and the rooms are clean and spacious. And the food!! I don't think I've ever had better dinners in any hotel, hostel or guest house. It's fresh, home cooked with love and they take into consideration any allergies and intolerances. For anyone staying more than one week I would recommend renting a car so you can explore the gorgeous West Algarve or skipping a day of surfing to go for a hike on the fishermen's trail. I am definitely coming back! Thanks for a great time Aldo and Sarah

We booked the all inklusive surfer package for one week for the second time now. We had a very great time again and we can highly recommend the surf school because of the very good teachers - especially in comparison to other surf camps we stayed, this one is far the best.

We are looking forward to our next stay!

Booked a one day course for my son and his mate recently. They had a really great day - Aldo and Sarah and their colleagues couldn't have been more welcoming. Tuition was excellent. Thanks.

My first experience with Aldo and the crew was in 2015. I stayed in with friends in Albufeira and we wanted to get to know the basics of surfing. So me and three friends booked only the beginner five day course. After that five days I was addicted to waves and getting one with this part of our nature. Aldo and the other guides (Braulio, Antonio) made us feel very comfortable from the beginning. We had the feeling that we have met some old friends. The atmosphere was very familiar. And you have to see this beach in Arrifana, it was a mystic feeling every morning we arrived. When talking to the other participants of the course we heard more about the lodge itself, the hilarious food and the fridge collecting beer :)
So we decided to visit the lodge in June 2016 staying one week. What should I say, I never (NEVER NEVER) felt so much relaxed and comfortable in my life before and again! It was amazing from the beginning until the end. I was very sad leaving some new friends (Greetings to Ben from UK) and I promised Sarah and the guys and also myself to come back. Unfortunately there was less possibilty for me last three years BUT October this year I will visit this amazing place again. Can't wait for it!

I am writing this after my third trip to surf with the crew from Arrifana surf lodge, and having just booked my next trip in October this year. The surfing instructors are awesome, huge thanks to Aldo, Antonio and Braulio for their endless patience and enthusiasm when dealing with a talentless 47 yr old new to surfing. They are also fantastic with my (much more talented) 11 yr old son.
The lodge provides the perfect holiday accommodation which feels very much like a home from home but without any of the chores, awesome job Sarah and her team. And the food at the lodge was amazing, despite all the surfing I put on some weight!
I haven't had a holiday anywhere that has made me feel so relaxed and happy to be alive, I will keep going back, and back, and back...

I am writing this after my second visit to the surf lodge and like the first time I just had an amazing time again.
This lodge provides everything from amazing food (home cocked 3 course meals nearly every evening), the perfect equipment for your level of surfing, surf training depending on your level of skills (rapidly improving thanks to Braulio and Antonio), hosts that treat you more like family (Thanks Aldo and Sarah) and changing support that is always motivated and helpful with preping food and keep the place super tidy.

If you are looking for a place with awesome surf conditions nearly every day and a chilled atmosphere to forget your everyday live back home - this is the place regardless if you are advanced and just look for some tips where to improve further or if you are toying with the idea to pick up surfing but have never seen a board up close.

The only sad thing for me is that I can not spend more time at this awesome lodge as like most of us I have only limited days of holiday, but be sure I might see you on my next visit. Let's go and catch some waves!

Arrifana Surf Lodge delivers on all fronts. Aldo is a delight, has great and motivating energy, and is an absolute pro on the beach. We took private lessons (my wife and I) and Aldo was super accommodating. A must for anyone staying in Aljezur!

Aldo+Sarah´s Surf Lodge in Arrifana: Simply the best! Great atmosphere, great food, great team. Could have never wished me better 10 days of vacation...

After staying at the Arrifana Surf Lodge in July of this year, I was hooked! So I knew I could not wait a year of even longer to be back and decided to come again for not one but two weeks in November! And again time flew by way too fast. Sarah, Aldo, Braulio, Antonio, Pedro & the rest of the team are the best! Arrifana Surf Lodge truly lives up to their tagline “your home away from home”. Everything was just perfect, food, accommodation, people, yoga, massage and surfing lessons ! They made a surf girl out of me, I’ll be definitely coming back next year for at least one week. Don’t look any further, go to Arrifana Surf Lodge, enjoy one of the best things Portugal has to offer and I’ll guarantee you’ll have a fantastic time! Oh and you must book a massage by Sonia, best one ever!

Dear Aldo and Sarah,
thank you for the wonderful week in the Surf Lodge! We're still dreaming about the relaxed atmosphere, funny evenings playing at cards, excellent food and the waves of course. Thanks also Antonio and Braulio for great surfing lessons and yoga on the beach. We will definitely come back!
