The place is amazing! What can I say?! The highway to swell motel is a little paradise a bit off the hustlin main road of Baleal/Ferrel! Which is perfect to have a relaxing barbie in the beautiful backyard after a good surf session around the Baleal peninsula! The opportunities to reach good surf spots within walking distance are staggering! Rooms...

This a perfect place to send some days surfing in Baleal. Cozy, close to the beach, clean, with good atmosphere. Carlo, Marieta and little Teo are excellent hosts always ready to help, give some tips or prepare a bbq. They have also material for renting (surf boards, bikes, etc). Will come back definitely.

Thank ManuSR83

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The highway to swell motel in baleal/portugal is a small, family-run place for surfers. things are simple here - like life should be in general. our rooms are tiny but sweet. we refused to spend loads of money on expensive "vintage shabby chic" furniture - we repair old stuff and build new beds chairs tables and shelves out of driftwood and things we find. the bedclothes are from the 60s and have strange patterns, cups plates forks and knifes do not fit together and our pool is for skateboarding not swimming. we don't need a "lounge" or chilling area - our guests hang in the garden between our flowers and vegetables. this is how we like it. and we feel happy if you like it too. ... more   less
