Terms - Swell Surf Camp amazing Caribbean Surf Camp Holiday with Yoga in the Caribbean for Social and Active people

Terms & Conditions

Please read the following terms and conditions, if anything is not clear, communicate this with Clare,

Swell Surf Camp

We know how people don't like reading Terms and Conditions, so we’ve kept them short:

We don’t offer any refund or credits on the room we save exclusively for you at Swell.  This includes (but is not limited to) illness/injury, family issues, expired passports, bad weather, sick pets, job commitments, traffic problems, airline delays, relationship breakdowns, etc. etc.

Don’t ask us for a refund or a credit; your reason will not be exceptional and we will say no: this is what a travel insurance policy is for and you must have one in place for your trip to Swell.  This policy will need to cover you for complete medical care in the Dominican Republic, together with cancellation or changes cover for any unforeseen circumstances.

If for any reason you need to extend your stay at Swell additional charges will apply; we will of course provide you with an invoice so that you can make a claim on your insurance policy.

Our kitchen is strictly out of bounds for guests: we know it looks inviting as a lovely open space, but it is for our staff only to use. We put Swell right next to a whole bunch of good, (often cheap) places to get lunch and dinners (on the nights we don’t cook).

If you ask to cook or warm something up or keep your half-eaten takeaway in the fridge, you will be refused. There is plenty of alternative accommodation available in Cabarete if you like to self-cater.

We will look after you very well; our staff have the best training available in their fields of expertise, but if you hurt yourself doing an activity (surfing/kiting are EXTREME sports), or your stuff gets stolen, we won’t take responsibility for it; your travel insurance policy needs to cover you.

Make sure you have adequate insurance to protect any belongings you bring with you to Swell.  Swell will not take any responsibility for any loss or damage to your belongings whilst at the camp; we can vouch for our own staff but in shared rooms particularly, we cannot vouch for fellow guests.

The same applies to any activities undertaken outside of Swell; like Canyoning for example, can be dangerous by their very nature and you undertake these excursions at your own risk.

Our surf coaches will give you instructions at the beach to keep you safe.  If you do not follow their guidance, they will refuse to take you to the beach or allow you to rent our equipment.

Thank you for reading.

  • Think of Swell as the anti-surf camp. There’s plenty of surfing, of course, but the similarities to other camps end there. For starters, the rooms are stylish — more boutique hotel than reggae-loving surfer digs. Then there are the legendary breakfasts (omelettes, pancakes and crepes, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and fruit bowls). Structured lessons take place each morning, with an instructor alongside you and the head surf coach watching from shallow water, ready to offer tips between rides.”

    About Swell Surf Camp:

    After living in the Dominican Republic for 8 years and loving the great outdoor watersport lifestyle, Jeroen (from the Netherlands) and Clare (for the UK) decided it was time to share their knowledge of the Dominican Republic all that this stunning country has to offer with visitors from around the world.

    Clare and Jeroen were already familiar with surf camps in many different countries and having had to stay in some very ordinary surf hotel accommodation in their quest for great surfing waves, they knew that there was something missing in the surf camp market; a place which was still social, but offering better quality accommodation, great food, nicer beds, cleaner rooms: A stylish, luxury surf camp. They set about designing the kind of place they would want to stay in themselves.

    So they hired a renowned Swiss architect for one purpose: to come up with the world’s first purpose-built, luxury surf camp & resort.

    Since opening in winter 2009/2010 Swell surf instructors have taught 1000’s of people how to surf in a safe, fun and structured manner. Since opening, Swell has won multiple awards and has 100’s of excellent reviews from happy guests. Swell continues to be one of the top destinations for couples, groups and solo travellers to go to as the #1 luxury surf camp holiday.

    It’s not just surfing on offer at Swell; You can learn to kitesurf, take yoga classes, go horse riding on the beach or in the mountains and enjoy some truly spectacular outdoor adventure trips like canyoning for example.

    Swell offers package surf holidays that take all the hassle out of the planning, with airport transfers, transport to the beach and much more, so all Swell guests can enjoy a stress free holiday right from the start. You just have to book your flights, and they will take care of the rest!

    With great food being such an important part of anyone’s surf vacation, Swell delivers there too; with superb home cooked food at the camp and on the evenings when guests go out to dinner, a large choice of restaurants offering a comprehensive choice of dining are all within a few minutes walk.

  • “The Dominican Republic has it all!”

    We hope you will join us on a Caribbean Surf Holiday in the Domican Republic.
