Our hostel is a remodeled family house located in Sagres just near one of the most paradisiac beach in Sagres called Martinhal! This is one of the best spots to make snorkeling, scuba diving and many other aquatic sports that you can imagine, or even just to chill at the beach and get some sun in a relaxed and quiet place…Our location allows you to walk to the main road where you will find supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacy´s, post office, shops, and as well where all the night life happens!!In this lovely village, still remote and undiscovered by many people, Sagres has a lot to offer from visiting historic places like the Sagres, Fortress or the Saint Vicent´s Cape to watch the most beautiful sunset in Europe, and many, many other locals... With a lot of good restaurants where you can choose from Mexican food and place to chill,or to eat the best fresh fish just caught: Bars and disco will fill in your night, and give you a lot to work on!!

Huge thanks to Chris & the wonderful Pura Vida dive team! Our 14 year old son passed his SSI SCUBA Dive level 1 qualification, over 4 days. The training was professional, patient, very thorough and reassuring. My husband & I also had an Open Water dive, I was very nervous but

Stayed in the Studio, comfortable bed, good shower and nice small kitchen. As good and better than any hotel/apartment in the area.If you turn left outside the hostel you can walk to Martinhal beach in a few minutes.

It was my first time diving, the instructions that the divemaster gave me were bad, and because of it, i felt really sick during and after the dive. The worst was that he touched and grabbed everything he could under the sea. That disturbs marine life and is a unnaceptable

Hello Eve, this review, it is of course , a realy big surprise for us. PuraVida has been always been involved with marine and underwater life protection, events and causes. It really doesnt make any sense for us what you are saying. We really would like to know exactly what could went wrong on the instruction that was gave for you to feel bad. Actually we dont even have this name under our records of students diving for the first time. If possible we really would like if you could send us one e-mail reporting when this happened your cmplete name and date. Will wait for your reply Best Regards Joana C.

Everything in here was fantastic. Good localisation, nice staff and good vibes. The dorms are clean and big enough. The only think would be the lack of bathroom. Only one inside and the other one outside next to the dive shop. The dive shop is as well very nice and I had a good

"Slept at a room for four with excellent value for the price, but when coming with friends or family, I would prefer the separate private studio."
"The 2 rooms are shared rooms with 2 bunk beds (4 persons) each, the studio is a stand-alone studio for a couple up to a 4 person family."
"You don't have to stay here to book diving or other activities."
"take the cabana in the garden for extra privacy"
"This was at the Cascade Hotel, my first but certainly not my last visit, absolutely excellent"
