Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a fabulous 10 days with Steve and co - me, a 49yo man, and my three young teens. We all loved it. We'd planned to stay for a week, and then spend 3 days in Lisbon - but we had so much fun at Magikvanilla that we binned Lisbon and stayed for more surfing. Lisbon can wait!

Magik has everything that you could want in a surf camp and more! From the minute that we were picked up from the airport, to our final sunset surf, everything was super slick and professional. The team were welcoming and friendly and Steve went out of his way to give us surf tips and ensure that we were having the best possible time. The surf house itself was in a GREAT location just 10 mins walk from the beach and 5 mins to the middle of town. The house was really clean and the outside space was lovely to chill in. It is a perfect base for the week. The instructors really prioritised the level of surfing that we were at and got the perfect balance of pushing us to surf bigger waves whilst ensuring that we were still having fun and were comfortable. This is the best surf camp that we have been on and we will definitely be returning! Big shout out to the two dogs who made guest appearances...Ziggy and Kaia!! How long until we can come again?!

I picked the surf camp without doing a lot of research, so I was pleasantly surprised to find everything even better than it looks online! The accomodations are basic, but clean and tidy, and include everything you need. The communal kitchen and outside area is great for hanging out and meeting the other visitors. The surf lessons with Steve and Bernardo were excellent, I learned more here than at previous surf camps. The video analysis alone is well worth it. Magikvanilla is made great by the people running it. Steve is a super energetic, happy dude with a great sense of hospitality and he's picked out a lovely crew to help him run a tight ship. A big thank you to Choelle, Danny, Franzi and Matt for all the fun conversations and evenings out, and thank you to Steve, Bernardo and Jaul for all the awesome lessons. I hope to be back soon!

This is probably the 4th time I've been here and, like every time, it's like coming home. The staff does an excellent job, and as a single traveller you never feel alone or abandoned. The age of the guests is so varied that it could just as well be several generations of a family. And there we have the keyword: family. You feel comfortable and safe in the house, the terrace and the entire grounds of Magikvanilla - just like at home. The guys and gals around the house live the spirit you would expect here and are always up for a laugh. The surf instructors do a top job and are top notch in terms of friendliness and teaching techniques. And last and most important: Susie and Steve as operators are heart-warming and fabulous people who have fulfilled their dream of having their own surf camp and are happy to pass on this feeling to the many (especially returning) guests and share their experiences. A visit here is always worth it :)

Magikvanilla Surf Camp in Portugal is an incredible destination for anyone looking to catch some waves and enjoy the beauty of the Portuguese coastline. Steve, the owner, is a fantastic host who goes above and beyond to ensure that all guests have an enjoyable and memorable stay. The food at the camp is delicious, with a great variety of options made by the staff there. The surf instructors are knowledgeable and friendly, creating a positive and supportive learning environment for all levels of surfers. With comfortable accommodations, beautiful scenery, and a welcoming atmosphere, Magikvanilla Surf Camp is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a surfing adventure in Portugal. I went with Liverpool University Surf club and had the best week. The nightlife was really good too.

Steve and the staff were amazing. I couldn't recommend more. Doesn't matter whether you're a beginner or advanced surfer, the instructors cater for all levels. Only a 5 minute walk into town with a decent nightlife. And 2 minutes from the local shop if you want to chill in the sun with a beer.

Our week long stay for a uni surf trip was better than any of us could have imagined. Such a gorgeous house and perfect location near to the town, beach and shop right next door !! The whole week was geared towards helping us becoming better surfers, and we felt like we were being taught to surf by instructors who actually wanted us to learn !! - something we have not had in the past with previous surf camps. such amazing value for money in this trip, especially in our uni package that included meals, airport transfers etc. Steve went above and beyond in everything, and was so chill and easy going with plans. so so so generous, such lovely people !! Steve and Susie thank you for everything I want to come back already !!!!!

We had a great week at Magikvanilla! We loved the surf lessons, which allowed us to catch our first waves as complete beginners. The atmosphere at the camp was very friendly and relaxed, welcoming a great mix of travellers from all over the world - whether you're travelling solo, with friends, as a couple or as a family, you will have a great time at Magik. Many thanks to Steve, Susie and the whole team for this amazing experience!

I stayed here for two weeks (7.2 - 7.16) to learn to surf. It progressed fast with Steve and Brian's nice instructions! Susie and all volunteers working in Magikvanilla are super super helpful and nice (Angula, Niko, Edi, Joco). Love you guys! I just cannot describe how satisfied I am with these half-month holidays. I love the relaxing vibe in Magikvanilla and Ericeira. I met many nice people in these two weeks from the Europe mostly. It's a great decision to learn to surf and chill here!!!
