We were very happy with the staff, the breakfast, the yoga and the surf. As an active family of 4 people (2 boys age 10 and 12) we enjoyed the surfing and the surroundings very much. Comments on the housing: the '5 star yoga and surf retreat is correct when it comes down to the surf and yoga alone ..... More

It's just all made with brain and lots of love: the accommodation, breakfast, lunch, the yoga and the funny surf lessons. Thanks to Jens and Timo, Jessica, Silvia, Annett and Leonor but also Luis and Rogerio I just had one unforgettable week which gave me plenty of power and good energy. Just on like this, guys! See you soon:)

They balance the activities of Surfing and Yoga with downtime well, and make sure you have space and time to truely relax. For me I became sore for a couple of... More
