RE: Cabarete surf camp

I did not stay at Ali's surf camp ever after hearing too many bad stories about rodents in the rooms and the restaurant.  

I met a girl and her boyfriend in January who had just left there.  As beginner surfers, they were taken to a surf spot called Preciosa which is an hour from Cabarete.  As a pretty good surfer myself, I know that this spot is NOT recommended for beginners or even intermediates.  It is a powerful wave and close to the cliff, shallow too.

The girl got into difficulties and once she made it out of the water, headed straight back to Cabarete, checked straight out of Ali's and left on a flight later that day.

If you do decide to stay there and you are not an experienced surfer, don't go on that day trip - it seems to be a money making exercise and nothing about matching the surfer's ability with the wave.

There's only one place in Cabarete that is worse than the Cabarete surf camp and that is the Extreme Hotel: no electricity (they talk about eco environment stuff at Extreme when the owner drives around in a huge GMC gas guzzling truck) and no security either.

To be avoided!

Funny that Extreme are marketing themselves as 'eco-green' when the real reason is that the place is a complete dump without a decent  power supply.
Sad to see a once cool place turn into a derelict dump.

Don't know about the Extreme Hotel in Cabarete, but I stayed at Ali's in Cabarete and he plays some dirty game with his clients. The room rate / package price was very unclear and when we asked about it, no straight answer was given, in the end we got a very inflated bill.

When we went home there was 3 of us in a taxi, and all 3 of us paid the full taxi fare to Ali, without us knowing that we were going to share...
The people at Ali's Cabarete surf camp are not surfers, they are just there to scam you out of money..
