surfing encuentro

There was never a time I didn’t feel at home at Swell. All the staff is warm, welcoming, and absolute professionals. The grounds are beautiful and immaculate. The rooms are ample sized, kept very clean, and everything works! For the social butterflies, there is plenty of space to mingle and get to know the staff and guests.
The camp is close enough to the action in town that you won’t need a cab during your stay if you want to try out the local cuisine, but just far enough that you can guarantee a good night’s sleep before your morning session. The surf instructors are amazing; super talented, knowledgeable, and patient. I should’ve put this first: The food is AMAZING! Never a bad meal. Never even a descent meal. They were all top-notch. Nobody leaves when the Swell chefs are cooking dinner, you won’t’ find a better meal. Swell made my trip to the DR hands-down my most memorable and satisfying vacations. I could stay.

  • 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 hotel 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. Highly recommended!
