No, on the contrary, we provide boutique hotel -like accommodation at our place. Maybe we should have called it Swell Surf Resort to avoid any confusion about the luxury surfing holidays we provide.

Swell is ranked as one of the best luxury surf hotels in the world, (see our client reviews), and Cabarete is one of the best surf destinations for beginners to go on a learn to surf holiday. Our accommodation was built from scratch to have the comforts of a high end surf hotel, but with the social vibe of a hostel. That’s why we called it “Swell Surf Camp“. If you want to know more about what the accommodation is like at Swell for your surfing holiday, have a look at “Our Place” or “Rooms“, and you will quickly realise you will not be roughing it “camping style” when you are on a surfing vacation with Swell!

  • Think of Swell as the anti-surf camp. There’s plenty of surfing, of course, but the similarities to other surf camps end there. For starters, the rooms are stylish — more boutique surf retreat than reggae-loving surfer digs. Then there are the legendary breakfasts (omelets, pancakes and crepes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and fruit bowls). Structured surf lessons take place each morning, with an instructor alongside you and the head surf coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer learn to surf tips between riding waves. If you are serious about learning to surf, then Swell should be on top of your destination list. Highly recommended!

    Designed with the discerning surfer in mind, Swell is far from a crash pad. The spare clean lines, plush bedding, modern photographs and funky furniture say ‘boutique surf retreat’ but the pool, ping-pong and foosball tables and social vibe suggest otherwise. A huge wood communal table is the center of the hanging-out action, after all the surfing is done. Highly recommended!
