I've now been 4 times to the Surf Castle and plan to go back! A great place to travel with friends, family or solo. Lots of great people, Joao and the rest of the Surf Castle team will ensure you get the most out your stay. Great food, beautiful beaches and wonderful people. A magical place not to be missed!

Joao and his team not only make you feel welcome and comfortable at the Surf Castle, they make you feel a part of their surfing community... Even if you don't surf! A great place to relax and enjoy the terrace where you can watch three surf spots at once. A good breakfast is included to prepare you for your day...

I recently stayed in the Surf Castle on a solo trip to Peniche for the weekend. Overall I had the most amazing stay. The waves pumped, the sun shone, and the people were incredibly friendly. The hotel borders the shabby chic category and has loads of charm. You share a toilet but the rooms are clean and have the best...

Surf Castle was the perfect place to learn to surf: instructors were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and kept enthusiastically encouraging learners throughout surf lessons - despite our endless mistakes :-) The emphasis during lessons was on enjoyment and fun while striving to improve. Instructors were also extremely safety conscious by ensuing learners didnt drift too far from the shore or instruction...

“Surf castle has rooms inside the house, and other rooms that are built outside overlooking the garden. Only the rooms inside the house have the superb view. I stayed at one of the rooms by the garden, and I really enjoyed it.”
