As an appetizer you are served olives, delicious cheeses with cornbread or a vegetable cream soup of the day. Try some rissois filled with meat or crab. At lunchtime affordable daily menus are offered, including drinks, bread, soup, main course and coffee. Desserts are delicately fine and recommended with some port wine. You find an impressive selection of wines that fit to every dish, especially from the nearby Douro, one of the most important wine regions.

This reviewer told us :

Delicious breakfast, very clean and nice accommodation. I have never stayed in such a luxury Lodge before for that cheap price. The kitchen is a dream for everyone who likes to cook while seeing nature through huge panoramic windows. The large and well-kept garden is super quiet and the hammocks, bean bags and sun beds invite to chill out. You can buy fresh fish, organic vegetables etc. in the supermarkets directly by the ocean, 3 minutes by bike away. Good bikes are always available. The people, the place, the beaches, everything was brilliant. I got really grounded and refreshed here

This reviewer told us :

New, untouched interior, like a model home! The surf lodge is gorgeous and stylish.

Surfing:

Surf was outstanding, we felt a wave of great energy in every class. We also attended one yoga class that was a great experience! We are beginners in surf, but from the start it was an incredible experience!!

Other (e.g. Surroundings, Nightlife, etc.):

Sergio and Jessy gave us so many great tips about the area it is just a shame we didn't have longer to explore. The empty beach was in a pine forest, it was so clean and fragrant and we could spend time there without any care in the world. Can't recommend Golden Waves highly enough!
