Captains log house is a fantastic place to stay and relax in Paniche! I've never stayed at a hostel with such a nice, warm, thoughtful, and easy going staff. I think I had a new type of homemade cake every night I stayed. The breakfast was amazing and the location is perfect, right on the cliffs overlooking great waves! It...

Captain's Log House is the coolest place for Portugal surf-get-away. I stayed there for a week and had so many good waves from 3 to 10 feet. Just 5 minute walk from 3 three different surfspots. Hostel was super clean, had a very nice breakfast and even pancakes for Sunday morning. Captain's crew was very friendly and helpful. A++++ Will...

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Captain's Log House. The personalised service started months before when we booked and received good advice on which room would best suit us. The room we ended up in was the Red room, which suited us well, with ample space, a view and a balcony. It also had a spectacular ceiling...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Captain´s Log House is a recently built beach hostel / surf lodge intended to accommodate people from all over the world. Is owned and run by travelers for travelers. There are more than 5 surfing spots at walking distance. Captain´s Log House has a unique decoration design, and a wonderful friendly atmosphere. Guests can cook and eat together. Someone travelling alone can do friends here. There is a particularly fabulous fresh grass smell, and it is very relaxing to lay down on the grass at the sun, after surf/stand up paddleboard (or other ocean sport). Upon request there are yoga/pilates/massages, etc in the garden. The beach is in the back of the house, so you can listen to the relaxing sound of the ocean every night. Or you can delight with the beautiful sunsets seen from the house balconies. ... more   less
