Great accomodation with lots of young and nice people! I enjoyed a lot my stay at Alta Vista. The staff was always ready to help and had very good tips (sightseeings, restaurants, activities ...). The hosts organise a barbeque every Tuesday evening and a visit to a very cool burger place every Friday evening. I enjoyed both a lot. I can only recommend this place and I would stay there again!

The time I spent here was really awesome. Everything was far better than I expected, with all the facilities and all the perks, the breakfast, which was delicious and well prepared and all the staff that were always available to help and make all the experience even more relaxing and without any worries. The room was clean, really comfortable and the swimming pool, just speechless. The activities provided by the Lodge are for all tastes and the promise of a really great time is guaranteed. Definitely a place to go back again in the future. Cheers.

A wonderful place! The best surf retreat that ever was. Not only because the House is very nice, but also the owners and the guests are super friendly and you can do a lot of cool stuff. The massage of Anna is soo good and with John you can do cool things, like riding on his quad bike. I probably won't be able to come back, because they get so many visitors, because of my good review, but they deserve it. I hope I can visit them again soon. Love you all so much!

Beautiful location and place to stay.



The Perfect Escape after Lockdown

At our Adventure Lodge, we know our people!


We know at some point they decided that they will never lose The Spark

What they remember are the people they met

The weirdly shaped bruises from the first days of a surfboard romance

We know that what you will walk away with is the memory of your emotions

They feed your souls and that...is PRICELESS

These are the epic stories you will share with your children one day

Let's face it.... They are very unlikely to hear about your memories of a 5* hotel you visited

And this is exactly why we believe in crafting unforgettable stories you cannot wait to tell!

We are all about experience.

Lets make memories together because we are open for business!!!

We cannot wait to greet you into our land of adventure....with a jug of home made sangria

Join us in making this summer the most epic yet!!
