I just returned from a week long stay at Swell Surf Camp, and have nothing but great things to say. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, and made us feel right at home. The breakfasts and dinners were amazing, always fresh and delicious! The hotel itself has a great vibe, relaxing, quiet, and clean. It is only a short... More

Swell is the place to stay if you're going to the Dominican to surf. Everyone at Swell was welcoming. Haudy was very sweet and attentive to everyone's needs. And the instructors were awesome! Tom and Aaron are fun and easy-going guys that know their stuff!!! Thanks for an awesome time. Cheers.

SO, you've probably read tons of reviews already. I'm the kind of person that is incertain of ease of making friends easily with strangers, but I read so many reviews on Swell Surf Camp that I decided to give it a go. First thing that happens when you land in Dominican Republic is that a cool driver waits with a... More

I found Swell Surf Camp after looking for an all inclusive place where I could learn to surf. The best thing about Swell is that the accommodation is part of Swell, run by Swell, not a hostel or hotel that they have a pricing deal with. A very short walk in to Cabarete's shops and bars right on the beach... More

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...
