Depending on how you look at it, this is either a charming old manor house B&B or a really, really upscale surf camp. Or both. The rooms in the main house are sparsely appointed but full of character, the bed was comfortable, and the view unbeatable - It's right on the point - any closer and you'd be sleeping in the water. There's a reef break right in front of the hotel, and two beach breaks within 5 minutes walk. The staff is friendly, helpful, and enthusiastic. The only thing I wish is that it had been a better value. It's not that it was super expensive, but it cost us more to stay in a resort town that was shut down for the off season (90 euros/night) than in Sintra or Lisbon. I also thought that wetsuit and board rentals were a bit overpriced, many places like this I've been to would include them in the price of the room. Still, a very cool and unique place.
