I had the most amazing time at the Salty Pelican this June. The staff is super friendly and helpful and they prepare the most delicious food. The accommodation is brand new, stylish and clean. All rooms are amazing as well. They are all brand new, clean and have super comfy beds. Might want to ask for one of the rooms upstairs to wake-up with a beautiful sea view ;)

The morning yoga sessions that Salty offers are the best way to kick start the day. After yoga, Salty serves a delicious breakfast with a wide range of choices. The surf lessons are an absolute must try. They have partnered up with an amazing surfschool and organize surf lessons for all different levels. Coming back after a nice surf session Salty offers you the ultimate way to relax by the beautiful pool overlooking the sea. Finishing the day of with some yin yoga is the perfect ending of an even more perfect day.

Salty Pelican is like paradise :)

Loved my stay at the Salty Pelican in Ericeira! The atmosphere as soon as you walk in is so welcoming and friendly - both from staff and other guests! As so many people visit here alone, it’s so easy to make new friends, there’s always someone hanging around the pool or going into the town or to the beach - all of which are within walking distance. Things such as the BBQ, tapas night and the mediation hike are all amazing ways to connect with the like minded people you’re sharing this experience with.
I really enjoyed starting my day with yoga by the ocean followed by breakfast with everyone sitting around talking about their previous day, their plans for that day or whatever the hot topic was that day.

It’s an absolute treat that you should definitely give yourself the pleasure of experiencing!

WOW, what an experience. I visited the brand new Ericeira Salty pelican yoga & surf retreat. From the minute I arrived I knew I was going to have the BEST time. Monika, Gareth, Tiago and the manager Jamie are so helpful and accommodating nothing was too much of an ask for them, from the transport from the airport to help in booking covid tests, they made the process so easy. The retreat is beautiful the decor, heated pool, outdoor gym and rooms are fabulous. I opted for a bunk room with a private balcony which over looked the sea! Some of the yoga classes were held on the pier which was a great experience but for the colder days they have an indoor studio! The salty pelican team hosted a BBQ for everyone which was a great opportunity to meet and chat to other people!...also a bonus an all day menu so you didn't have to walk into the main town( which is only a 500m walk) for any snacks...or margaritas !! I can't wait to visit again in September!! Thank you guys for such a memorable trip- highly recommended x

Having just returned to the UK from The Salty Pelican in Ericiera, I have one word - AWESOME! We had the most amazing stay in every way. The location is superb - a stunning spot which is close to the town centre yet tranquil, and the actual property itself has been done to a great standard with sea views. Indoors and outdoors, there isn't a single thing we could fault. The staff and experience were something else - every one of them tried their absolute best to ensure we were catered for. They really went above and beyond the call of duty for is. The yoga and the activities were perfect too. All in all, we had a 10/10 experience and would recommend highly!!

Felt like I had a 5star accommodation. Everything works well at the salty, starting at the awesome staff, going through the great food and drinks, the perfect location (only 5 minutes away from the center) all this with breathtaking view from the sea.
Will definitely come back and can securely recommend.

This yoga retreat was just what I needed. I was stressed and working way too much so booked myself in for a week in October.

Ericeira is a beautiful little down, very relaxing, seems to be eternally sunny, wonderful restaurants, lots of beaches.

The retreat was great. Everyone was lovely and friendly, I intended to have a lot of solo time but the other people were just so like minded I couldn’t help but make friends.

Nearly all solo travellers, lots of people of a similar age (I’m 32), the yoga classes were lovely, the place was lovely, really enjoyed myself.

Area for improvement - there felt like a constant queue for the showers / toilets, if you could find a way to add a few more that would be ideal!

I would most definitely recommend and return.

Room Tip: It’s a steep place to get to and about a 15 minute walk if you arrived via bus. Just be mentally...

My stay at the Salty Pelican in Ericeira span over 10 days. The time I spent there was really high quality, when I left it even had a little family vibe.
I really enjoyed the benefits of the Yoga and Surf package. Two times yoga a day and seven surf lessons over the course of my stay was all I could wish for my getaway.
The nearby old town/city center of Ericeira invites to stroll and take a coffee or 3, charms with a lot of cute little places, gives the laidback surf vibe and allows lovely beach walks.
The food at the Salty Pelican itself was made with lots of love and fresh everyday. The staff went beyond for the BBQ and tapas events.
I felt really welcome all of the time I spent there, specially since I was there in December during low season and it was quite quiet for some times.
So, to conclude my review:
I learned a lot about myself, surfing, and found back to my love of practicing yoga. Had a great time with the people I met there (also a lot of solo travelers).
Over all I can really recommend the place and the experience I made.
Thanks for having me!

The house was nice and the massage was good, but this was really the only thing that I liked. Part of staff were not patient at all and the really bad thing about my experience happened because of them. When I checked in with my friend, they asked if we would like to dinner that night. They told that the dinner was at 7pm, but they hadn't said what time was about to end. When I arrived there with my friend around 8:30pm there was no food left and we had to pay 30 euros for the information that was not clearly explained. They said that they had to waste food because of ourselves - a clearly fake environmental friendly vibe - because when we arrived there was no food left at all. I wouldn't recommend this experience at all. Better to go to a hotel in ericeira and book some surf and yoga classes (there are many around the city).

Just got back from a relaxing week at The Salty Pelican, WOW I expected it to be good from reading all the positive reviews before my arrival but by far my experience there exceeded all my expectations. Really happy I chose this place, the yoga at sunrise with Lindsay was just the perfect way to start the day and she really makes the effort to take care of postures for a beginner like myself. Breakfast was also satisfying with fresh fruits, beetroot humus and more. I joined their guided meditation hike to this picture perfect national park beach in the middle of nowhere, truly paradise… what a joy that was, totally recommend that ! I cant wait to come back already !
