Everything I Needed and More Than I Expected!
I can’t identify many things wrong with Swell. All members of the staff are kind, enthusiastic, and genuinely want to take good care of you. The housekeepers/cooks are some of the hardest working women I’ve ever met, and the meals they cook will make you go weak in the knees.

I never once felt like I was in anything other than good hands while at Swell. Our room was clean and comfortable, the maintenance man keeps everything working, the instructors love their jobs and want nothing more than for you to find joy in surfing, and the establishment feels safe and secure. The surrounding neighborhood can be daunting at first (especially the insane roads!), but after spending an hour or two acclimating, you’ll learn to love the character and unique-ness of it all.

I would recommend Swell to anyone who is looking for the perfect mix of unscheduled freedom with open options and structured play time. Really, the only schedule you need to worry about is surf in the morning if you want…eat a delicious breakfast at 9:00AM…maybe take yoga in the afternoon…eat dinner provided by the kitchen every other day at 7:00PM. Everything else is unstructured and yours for the taking. I got everything I needed and more than I expected from Swell. Thank you!

  • 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!
