My friend and I stayed at watermark Surfhouse in Esphino for a week and we had the most amazing time! Not only the team is super friendly and helpful (shoutout to Ricardo, Rui and Fred - you rock!), our room was lovely with a balcony and ocean view. Plus the ocean is basically just across the street. It was the first time we tried surfing, so we booked the weekly surf package. The classes were really small and sometimes we even had private lessons. Yoga and especially the functional training on top were the perfect addition. A delicious breakfast is included and being served in a nice cafe next door. We would recommend to go to and from the airport by train as it is very cheap, convenient and the accommodation is close to Espinho train station.
We're already thinking about our next trip there! - Yana & Fiona

The Watermark Surf House in Espinho is a great spot! Next to the ocean! A lot good restaurants and bars are next to the house. Ricardo and his crew are really great peolple. Incredible friendly. To learn surfing by this guys is the best what you can do. We surfed for the first time and we learned it really fast. After the first day we could ride some white water waves. After 4 days we could catch also green water waves. Best teacher ever! Best location ever!

I was there with a friend and we spend one week there. We booked the weekly Surfpack. All was perfect from the airport transfer to the rooms.
All the rooms were clean and there were towels to use, a little and a bigger one.
The people were really nice we spend a lot of time with the best and coolest surf teacher Fred. Everyone was really friendly and we had one of the greatest time in the Watermark Surfhose in Espinho.
The breakfast was really nice and it was the best way to start the day.
and the rooms were in a nice position.

Thank you all guys you are the best!!!

Look at Fred his project Fredforfit in instagram ;) he is the funniest guy i`ve ever met.

First of all the location of the surf house is just perfect. You'll find everthing you need in the close surrounding and of course a surf spot just in front of the house.
The rooms are comfortable and clean. Some even have a balcony and an ocean view, thus you can check out the waves when you wake up.
The guys, Ricardo, Rui, Paolo and Fred are really friendly and heplful. They try theire best that you have an awesome holiday and feel at home.
The groups in the surf lessons are quite small and Fred helps you to improve your surfing very good.
I loved my time at the watermark surf house and can only thank these guys for all theire effort. You are doing a really great job!

I had the best time staying at Watermark in Espinho. From the moment I arrived I was warmly welcomed and well taken care of. The owners go above and beyond to make sure all of their guests have the best experience possible. My room was clean, cute and simple with a gorgeous view of the surf. Not that you need to spend much time at the hostel as there is always lots to do! I booked the surf package and spent everyday at the beach surfing and hanging out with other guests! The yoga and surf workout were a bonus and lots of fun too! The surf instructor Fred is great, super friendly and funny. He makes sure everyone feels comfortable in the water and is very safety conscious. Overall if you're considering going to Portugal for a surf vacation you will not be disappointed if you choose Watermark! Thanks again to Ricardo, Paulo and Rui for such a great stay! :)
