Really friendly crew, with a great sense of humour yet professionalism to their job. Surf instuctors are positive, encouraging and super awesome at their job. The staff definitly make your stay a fun one. Close to a cute little Portuguese village :-)

I went on the never winter weekend package in November and it was brilliant. Lovely people, great food, loads of fun on the surf and a laid back atmosphere. The lodge and location is great. I had a nice welcome when I arrived. I had never been surfing before and the instructors were all patient and encouraging. They split the...

Hey Hannah, Thank you for your kind words, it was so lovely to meet you!

I had a fab time staying in a lovely tee-pee in the surf house garden. Staff were very accommodating and easy to chat to-something that is difficult at times, with hard core surf 'dudes'! I would definitely recommended this place to others of all ages. Its simply got a good vibe, possibly the best I've experienced and I've stayed in...

Joined the staff in their end of season BBQ which was great fun, amazing food, bottomless Sangria and a great local band playing. Surf was also good, instructors...

Hey Emma, Thank you for your review, it's great to hear you had a brilliant stay with us. It was a lovely weekend hosting you and the London Surfers, the 24ºC sunshine was a real treat for November.

Jah Shaka was a great place to stay and learn to surf - especially for first time surfers. We met some wonderful people at the lodge and had some great nights spent drinking a couple of beers around the bon fire. The dinners served up by the Jah Shaka team are delicious and I would definitely recommend buying the meal...

Hey Monique, Many thanks for your kind words, we love hearing about our guests stays! I'll pass your compliments on to Bas our in-house chef, he creates such delicious meals for staff and guests. Hopefully see you again for a couple of beers around the firepit in 2015. Keep surfing! Nat :)

Have been to jah shaka twice now. First time in April, and I stayed for 2 weeks. In November they offered the green wave rider course, it was an offer too good to pass. And I am really happy I didn't pass, because it was really good! The staff is a fun and motivated bunch and do their best to...

Hey Lina, Thanks for your review! It was great to see you again this November. Jan said there was a great improvement in your surfing after our Green Wave Riders Week, our Intermediate Surf week!

Had a great week, laid back and great tuition, good food, thanks to all. Instructors were great at teaching what were mixed ability groups, giving plenty of tuition and support. Food was good, and the surf lodge was a really relaxing and pleasant place to stay. Thanks to all.

Stayed here for one week and had a great time, nice people, lovely weather (in Oct 32 degrees whoohoo) and very good food! I had a private room for the first 4 nights and slept in the dorm for the other 3 nights, both where great rooms. I can highly recommend this Surf house!

We took a party of 27 to Jah Shaka back in Easter for our annual University Surf Club trip. With such a big group organisation can sometimes be difficult, but right from the start the staff were extremely professional. Our flights to Faro arrived at different times across several days but a van was always waiting to pick us up...
