Anyone been to "Swell Surf Camp" in D.R.??

« on: March 30 2010 22:03:00 »


There is so much advertising for this Swell Surf Camp - has anyone actually been there? Is it any good? We are long boarders and want to go to a solid establishment for experienced surfers... that has good wave variety for long boarders...

Any feedback or comments??

Stayed there for 2 weeks, would have loved to stay there forever.
The place rocks. Owners are super friendly and Luciano Gonzalez is THE man.
The rooms are comfortable and the communal area is a superb place to chill, watch a DVD , play pool etc.

Don't even think about staying somewhere else in Cabarete, You'll love it!

from the pics on their website it looks like a cool place to stay.

What's the surf like in August?

August is a good time for beginners and intermediates.

When a hurricane passes north it's good for experts, like last year with hurricane Bill when we had sunny weather and  double over head waves here in Cabarete.

Stayed there 3 weeks ago: place is awesome.
Super cool building. Luciano Gonzalez is a great surf instructor, and real nice guy to hang with and the variety of nationalities from the 15 or so other guests made it one of the best holidays I have ever had.

Swell is highly recommended.

ps: Don't miss the BBQ night on the beach every Friday with the beer crate climbing.

I wanted to stay at Swell at the end of May but they have no more spaces then.

Is there a similar place in Cabarete?
I have never surfed before.

There's Aqualina at Kitebeach which is a decent condo / hotel although no social atmosphere there like in a surf camp.

be warned...don't stay at Extreme hotel, I did, for 2 nights, and then moved out. Place is a dump and falling apart.

have a good holiday.

Swell Surf Camp Rocks.
Stayed there for 3 weeks and I can honestly say it was the best holiday of my life.

Very friendly vibe, and the town of Cabarete is awesome 7 days a week there's pumping nightlife ( if you want that kinda thing).
We went horseriding, waterfall tours, yoga and spinning classes, SUP lesson.

I'll be back!

Been to 2 surf camps in Costa Rica and 1 in Nicaragua, but Swell was by far the best.
Clean rooms, good vibes and super friendly staff
