Swell has a great environment where everyone interacts with each other either by playing pool, ping, pong or sitting at the pool. It has dorm style rooms and also private rooms, offers all types of lessons and excursions. All in all it was a lot of fun and definitely would love to go back.

My friend and I stayed at Swell in July 2014 for two weeks and had an AWESOME time! People were mostly from the U.S. and Canada, between 20-40 years old and very open-minded and laid-back. If you feel like going on an active holiday with a mix of socializing and meeting new people but also with the possibility to have... More

This was my second stay at Swell Surf Camp and it was just as great as my first time there. All the practicalities are taken care of in the most professional manner - right from the fast reply when booking, to the airport pickup and everything you may need during your stay. The camp itself is beautiful and clean with... More

I loved everything about my stay at swell! I was recommended Swell Surf Camp serendipitously by someone I was talking to at a bar in Manhattan. I booked this trip last minute with no idea what to expect. Everything about the trip was fun and easy. The staff were helpful and friendly. Haudy, the manager, is as lovely as previous... More

I cannot say enough good things about Swell. I loved every second I spent there! I was traveling solo and felt immediately welcomed by everyone there. My room was super cozy and the bed and linens were super comfortable. The camp itself is lovely and peaceful and all of the staff are incredibly gracious and friendly. Haudy, the manager, will...

This is third surf camp that I've been to and it was, hands down, the best one yet! The accommodations were fantastic, the instructors were excellent (and a lot of fun), and Haudy and the other staff made me feel like I was home....completely taken care of. Aaron, one of the instructors, was having first week at Swell and he... More

My trip to Swell Surf Camp was one of the most amazing, memorable trips I've been on. There is no way to put into words how great this place is. From the minute I walked through the doors I felt like I had a new Dominican family. Haudy and the staff at Swell were phenomenal! Haudy is the biggest sweetheart... More

Swell Surf Camp in Cabarete was AMAZING! The people, from Haudy the manager, to Sam, Jack, and Neno (the instructors) - everyone at Swell was amazing! Every single part of this trip was great, from surfing, to family-style dinners, yoga in the afternoons, and just hanging around camp. The people there were a cool mix of young people, families, and... More

Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time at the camp last week. Weather was great, surfing was fun and overall it was a fantastic vacation. Haudy and the team at Swell treated us very nicely. We are looking forward to planning another vacation with you. Thanks so much.

I was on the verge of booking to stay somewhere else but then I came across Swell's professional website and got a good feeling that I'd feel comfortable there as a solo traveller, and be with like-minded people of a similar age (i.e. 30-40, rather than gap year/early 20s). It was the best decision I could have made. Everything, from... More
