From Swell Clients

Learned a lot at SWELL from knowledgeable and patient surf instructors. Cooks prepared fabulous hardy/heathy meals. Facilities were very comfortable, clean and safe. Can’t say enough about all the staff. Glad I stayed 2wks to allow time for other activities ie kiteboarding nearby. Traveled solo but felt part a family. Highly recommend this as an active holiday.

I spent a month in the Dominican Republic and some of my fondest memories are of my two weeks at Swell Surf camp. The management was great (Haudy), the surf instruction was good, and the Breakfast and Dinners were top notch. The establishment is very clean and well maintained. On my first day surfing I re-aggravated an old injury and I was in pretty bad shape. Haudy came through for me. She did all she could to comfort me and put me in the right direction to get the proper care which allowed me get back out in the water. I really appreciated that and it’s something I won’t forget. You all surpassed all expectations in every category and I’m definitely returning in the future. Thanks for the great experience!

The Swell Team is amazing! In 7 days they successfully taught me how to surf. We had an absolutely wonderful time. My husband and I were traveling together and enjoyed the camaraderie and community that swell offers. The accommodations were perfect and the food was amazing! I have a gluten allergy and the chefs were so kind to always have options for me at each meal. Everything is planned for you the moment you arrive and you can truly relax and enjoy your vacation. I would give them ten stars if I could. Highly recommend Swell !!
