"Nice location but several annoying details"

"Wonderful stay!"

The place was very nice, cosy room, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, exactly what I needed to forget about everything else!

The yoga classes were very good, with a great instructor (Madelena, but her name doesn't appear in the dropdowns), very attentionate with both beginners and experienced practitioners, and always with a sunny smile!

Recommended to have a vehicle if you want to visit the many interesting places in and around Sintra in between classes.

"Cute property, but plan ahead to be off grid. Car preferred."

The renovated horse stable rooms are tight, but super cool. No full privacy with gaps between top and bottom swinging doors that need to be secured in winds (which will still affect you if your neighbor doesn't secure theirs). The grounds are very pretty! The breakfast sometimes had almond milk in the morning, but usually only soy. The sauna room is very nice, it's just odd that you have to book it during limited, later in the day hours.

"Great few days away"

Everything is so carefully thought of and the staff are so helpful and will try and help answer any query. The shops take a little longer to get to than is suggested but easy to find. If you are the sort of person who books an active holiday and you are self reliant this is perfect accommodation and base for you. I liked everything.

The kitchen and sauna/jacuzzi facilities were great (though there was an extra charge for these on most days, there were 2 free/no-charge) days per week). There was a nice outdoor swimming pool and some lovely hammocks for relaxing in.

The staff were quite friendly. The breakfast and self-made lunches were pretty good.

"A lovely tranquil place to do yoga and chill."

Friendly and helpful staff. Gorgeous pool and gardens - the sea is too cold so the pool was great. Very good kitchen and BBQ so we shopped at the local market for very good fish and veg and cooked a few meals at the Lodge and ate in the pretty garden. Breakfast buffet was extensive and plentiful. 10 minute walk to a lovely beach - Praie Grande - with steep cliffs, golden sand and crashing waves or a bit longer to a smaller beach along the coast path.

"Great relaxing holiday"

The starpine lodge is such a relaxing place to be. The breakfast is lovely, the staff really nice, the surfing brilliant and the yoga relaxing and energizing. Would go back i a heartbeat. You meet lovely people as well so also great to go if you are on your own. Praia Grande is the place to watch an amazing sunset and only 5 minutes walk

"Great facilities, very well run"

This place is run by Germans, and you can tell as everything is high quality and runs like clockwork.

They are EXTREMELY helpful and it's a great place for a worry and stress free getaway.

It's a nice concept where they have a continental buffet breakfast, pack your lunch from there, then can eat out or use a great community kitchen for dinner.

"AMAZING, I want to go back again and again "

Everyone at the lodge were so friendly and helpful. Food was fresh and different things to choose from daily. Facilities were great, esp the yoga hut & pool area. Converted stables as rooms were extra special. Several restaurants nearby had some of the freshest seafood I've ever tasted. (Staff recommendation) Will be back and will highly recommend. Loved it.

"Just perfect"

I liked all about The Logde. The staff was SO kind and helpful. I felt welcome and safe.

With a german owner as Ralph, you find everything in hand everwhere. Any detail needed had been thought of. Every morning I was met with a personal greeting and Ralph even knew our names. The yogateachers were exellent and so were the food. The place was cosy and clean with a spacius beautful garden and a

lovely pool with saltwater.

"4 night stay with surfing and yoga "

This was one of the most relaxing holidays I've been on yet! The surfing was organised well and we had great instructors. The yoga in the evening was the perfect balance after surfing. The Lodge itself was beautiful. The rooms were gorgeous, fitted out with all natural furniture and materials. There was a relaxed atmosphere among all guests and staff. Truly enjoyed the holiday!

"Super schöne Anlage, perfekt zum entspannen"

Die Anlage ist super schön, sehr gepflegt, die Zimmer hell und freundlich und sehr sauber, ordentlich.

Das Frühstücks-Buffet ein Traum (nur an den Plastikflaschen für das Lunchpaket könnte man noch arbeiten).

Ich hab lediglich das Yoga am Morgen gemacht, weil ich am Nachmittag immer unterwegs war, aber das war mega entspannend und ein perfekter Start in den Tag.

Die Mitarbeiter der Lodge sind alle super freundlich und versuchen jeden Wunsch zu erfüllen, gerade wenn es um Ausflüge (klettern, surfen, bouldern, Sintra) geht.

Eine wundervolle Anlage 15 Minuten weg vom Strand. Ruhig, sehr gepflegt und gemütlich. Das Personal immer freundlich und hilfsbereit. Man hatte ehr das Gefühl bei Gastgebern zu sein als in einem B&B.

Für jedes eventuelle Problem gab es eine Lösung, sodass man sich um nichts Gedanken machen musste.

L'endroit du surf camp est privilégié. Il est aménagé simplement et confortable., les espaces extérieurs sont très bien entretenus. L'équipe du surf camp est très accueillante. Les cours de yoga étaient top et ceux pour le surf bien organisés.

"touched!"

Es war ein wundervoller Aufenthalt. Ich bin immer noch verzaubert. Die yoga und surf Kombination bringt wahrlich alle Sinne zum tanzen. Ganz tolles Team! Man fühlt sich vom ersten Moment an gut aufgehoben. Es ist alles super organisiert. Es fehlt an nichts! Es sind Kleinigkeiten, die entzücken und den Aufenthalt lange nachhallen lassen. Thx!

I was looking forward to a relaxing holiday, enjoying the sounds and smells of nature, yoga, meditation and generally taking it slowly. I couldn't have picked a better place! The gardens of the property are stunning, the rooms are cleverly decorated (minimalist chic incorporating nature materials like cork) with a comfy bed and amazing hot shower (perfect after a day in the sun). The breakfast is plentiful and the communal kitchen is well equipped. I took the yoga package (10 lessons) and was pleasantly surprised by the dedication of the yoga teachers, who would take time to connect with you and help you to fully immerse yourself in the practice. I would say the yoga is of the more spiritual, mindful (rather than sporty) type - this is what I was after but perhaps it doesn't suite someone who is more interested in sweating it out rather than breathing techniques and meditation. The only disappointment I had is that when I arrived, there were 2 big groups of people staying at the Lodge and doing boot camp style yoga and surfing sessions. It was hard to coordinate with the group (as they had their own lessons) and organize any activities together. So to my disappointment, for the first 3 of the 7 nights there was little scope for socializing and I found myself eating and walking alone (and the roads can be dark!) in the evenings. I couldn't have changed my travel dates, but for other sole travelers it would be good to be given a heads up if there are not many like-minded solo travelers staying over around the same time. But as the yoga teacher would say, nothing is permanent and everything is in a state of flux - the Lodge quickly filled up with lots of solo travelers and the evenings got fun and relaxed with lively dinners (try sushi in the nearby village at David's - it's a must!). Everyone was super helpful, organised and friendly - there is a very welcoming atmosphere at the Lodge and everyone is doing their job wholeheartedly. I was truly impressed by how beautiful the place is and how everyone is super professional and tries very hard to make sure you have an amazing stay - and I definitely did, thank you!

I stayed in the mini suite with my partner and couldn't have had a better time. We booked an extra night immediately (we were lucky there was the availability). The photos don't do the Lodge justice, it is a stunning place with great facilities (pool, gym, spa, sauna, all set in the pristine garden). The staff are amazing, the food at breakfast is super fresh and delicious. Although I was there with my partner, The Lodge is perfect for families and friend groups. You won't be disappointed.

If you have teenage children you'll know how impossible it is to find a holiday to please the whole family. So this was perfect for us. Both teenagers wanted wi-fi. Tick. One wanted a pool and local beaches - tick. The other wanted activities like surfing and rock climbing - tick. My wife and me like yoga - tick. And we all like visiting places like the Pena Palace in Sintra. I could go on but you've got the picture. Oh and the staff are lovely - kind, thoughtful and very helpful. Great mixture of hotel and self catering as well. Please don't share this with too many people - we want to go again.

Two parents - one child - five days. Easy and accurate booking, pick up and drop off from Sintra and everything as promised. Mother did yoga and meditation every morning and evening. Beautiful friendly teachers! Catering to both experienced and beginner yoga practitioners. The rest of the family joined the last day and wished they could continue. Surfing lessons every day for father and son, with skilled instructor. We did several days of sightseeing in beautiful Sintra with surrounding hills and castles. Easy to get there, about 20 min trip by bus. Met several interesting, friendly, fellow travellers and Ralph and his crew were perfect hosts. Beautiful, clean rooms, great healthy breakfast and make-your-own-lunch. We made friends, went biking to the store, walked to the beach, chilled in the hammock, swam in the pool, went horseback riding, played football, had both self-made dinner and takeaway pizza at home as well as several good restaurant dinners. Highly recommended! Wish we could go back soon.
