- "Beyond Amazing": Luciano who runs the surf camp (penthouse) made the whole experience!! Being a local he knows all the people and places to go. The accommodations were top notch, breath taking, and completely safe!! I've been to about 30 countries and this was one of my top 3 experiences. Great waves and amazingly beautiful sights to see, from waterfalls and horse back riding through the mountians to stand up paddleboarding down rivers and kite boarding lessons from the world renowned Luciano Gonzalez himself. Luciano can really relate to travelers as he has traveled to many countries himself. Can't say enough positive things about this place, can't wait to go back!!! Great for singles, groups, or couples of all ages, you are treated like family!!... read more on TRIPADVISOR LinLaz, - Seal Beach, CaliforniaLG Surf Camp - Reviewed by LinLaz on . Rating: 5
“TOP TOP TOP”: LG surf camp is a really nice place to stay at... First, the location and situation are amazing : located near to kite beach, this part of the beach is not buisy and you can enjoy the place almost only for your own. Then the view from the penthouse is WoWW!!! Then you have the choice between : kitesurfing, stand up paddling or surfing or... chill out and do nothing = there is always something to enjoy. Then breakfasts are delicious... And last but not least, Luciano will definitely make you feel super confortable. To sum up, don't even hesitate, LG Surf Camp is the place to stay at!!! ... read more on TRIPADVISORMarie D, Paris, Ile-de-France, France
"The best of the best": I travelled a lot and never seen this concept anywhere. I highly recommend LG Surf Camp to all water sports & leisure lovers out there. Luciano was an amazing host and companion. He litteraly made us feel like family! We took kite lessons and we couldn't have a better teacher. He's so patient and passionate. The surf camp is located in a beautiful gated quiet condo complex. The complex is recent and very well maintained. You couldn't get a more perfect location: It is beach front and a short walking distance from beach restaurants and night entertainment. When you first walk into the unit the view is breathtaking. All private and shared rooms have ocean view. The surfcamp is very very clean, well decorated and functionnal. We had huge private room with private bath. Shared rooms are spacious and we really enjoyed the large ocean front balcony with cozy sofas. ... read more on TRIPADVISORAMParent, Montreal, Canada
“Best surf camp ever!”: LG Surf Camp is amazing! I stayed in the penthouse recently and cannot say enough good things. The accommodations are beautiful, the beach view is breathtaking and the location to everything Cabarete has to offer is perfect! Luciano is a gracious host who goes above and beyond to make you feel like family. He's an excellent surf instructor, patient and full of good tips. The family style meals are delicious and you will definitely feel spoiled. There is no doubt in my mind that I will be back again and again and again. ... read more on TRIPADVISORStorm B, New York, New York, United States
“The ONLY place to stay if you're in Cabarete”: It's hard to know where to start; The food is amazing, home-cooked and is ALWAYS on time. The accommodations are amazing. The entire penthouse has a clean, modern feel and is equipped with pretty much everything you'd need to feel comfortable away from home. With three pools, close proximity to the beach (which made for night after night of wave-induced lullabies) and the a head of the house like Mr. Luciano Gonzales, there's no way you won't have a blast at LG Surf Camp. I hated the my first day of surfing due to my own inadequacy with the activity, but after another day of closely following Luciano's instruction even I was catching waves left and right. ... read more on TRIPADVISORJustin K, Brooklyn, New York, United States
“Perfect”: Last summer my girfriend and I went to cabarete for a kitesurfing holiday. Wile I was allready an experienced kiter, my girlfriend wanted to learn the basics. With Luciano we find the perfect teacher. In contrast with a lot of kiteteachers, who are more busy with being 'cool' than with teaching, he is actually a real teacher. In notime my girlfriend got the basics and she actually really enjoyed the process! He teaches with humor and patience, and not unimportant, uses very cool kites( rabbit gang!) furthermore, was he really helpfull with everything, from dinnertips to surflessons or trips to La bocca to see the pro's kiting. His new hotel is just off the beaten track and gives a unbelievably nice view on the beach and ocean. A real hidden gem! ... read more on TRIPADVISORVdbergen, Utrecht, Utrecht, Netherlands
“Excellent surf camp”: We come to LG Surf camp as a group of four. The penthouse has a stunning view of the ocean, it is a dream accommodation by the sea. We enjoyed watching the sun rise in the morning before the morning surf session. We enjoyed the surf at Encuentro beach. The dinners served are really good. I took Kite classes with Luciano. He is a really good instructor. He is nice and will take the time to explain you what you need to do and improve. The highlight of our trip was the SUP ride on the river to a restaurant for lunch. We had some Coco Loco and Pina colada served in a pineapple. I would recommend this place to friends going to DR ... read more on TRIPADVISOROlivier P
“You won't want to leave.”: Loved everything about this camp. Travelled alone as a young female and felt completely safe and at home. Met some amazing people of all ages and will definitely return in the future. The owner Luciano is an all around amazing person and surfer who actually spends quality time with you. Short walk into town along the beach to bars, restaurants, shops, grocery stores, etc. You are literally right on the beach and get to experience the best of Cabarete. Very memorable trip and I highly recommend you put this on your list of travels. ... read more on TRIPADVISORDee S, Canada
“Best vacation I've had”: The area is amazing and we felt safe the whole time.. There are so many activities to do so you will not get board like you will at some of the bigger and more well known places. Our whole trip was filled with non stop fun and I wish we would have stayed longer. We're already planning our next trip and will probably stay a whole week next time.. Kiteboarding is probably my new favorite sport! Luciano also gave us surf lessons and had us riding the waves in no time. He is patient, knows what he is talking about and will move at your pace. His place is also amazing and has beautiful views of the ocean. ... read more on TRIPADVISORTravis E, The Woodlands, Texas, United States
“Great place to stay in Cabarete”: I must say, it was my first time in the Caribbean so I didn't really know what to expect. But I was immediately relieved when I arrived at the penthouse, seeing the beach and hearing the sound of the sea in a comfortable couch, with a little drink. I shared a room there with a couple of friends. Then, Luciano took care of everything, from the kite lessons to the bars in Cabarate, always the good words to make the moment special ! It was definitely a good week, I would happily recommend this place. And don't forget to ask for "the bodega", it's a must try ! ... read more on TRIPADVISORColas F, Montreal, Canada
“Fantastic Family Fun!”: My wife, 9 and 5 year old, and myself just got back from Cabarete.We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Luciano was extremely accommodating during the entire vacation. He spent a lot of time communicating with me before our arrival to make sure I was comfortable with bringing my family to be taught by him and the conditions of the surf spot. He is an excellent teacher and an all around great guy. He was patient with my wife and 9 year old daughter and built up their confidence in the water and more importantly made it a fun experience. They looked forward to each session and didn't want to stop surfing! For myself, he took my surfing to a higher level as he could quickly see where I needed help. We would all highly recommend his instruction as well as his beautiful surf camp. His place is modern, clean, and situated on a beautiful beach and his surf equipment is top notch. ... read more on TRIPADVISORBridget S, Oakville, Canada
“Unforgettable experience”: Perfect place to stay when you are looking to get immersed into water action and enjoy a beautiful and comfortable accommodation. The first thing to strike us when entering the property was the view. It is simply unbelievable. You are looking over the ocean with the fringe of palm trees and this is the what we woke up to every day as it is visible from all penthouse rooms. The ocean is so close that you go to sleep to the sound of the waves crashing and wake up with the sun rising above the water. The accommodation itself is of a very high standard, very clean and comfortable with plenty of opportunity to chill in the common areas. The food is amazing, we were surfing every day at 7am and it was an incredible pleasure to get back to a warm home cooked breakfast. ... read more on TRIPADVISORChear_up, Hamburg, Germany
“Paradise”:LG Surf Camp has been around for less than a year, but it is already a fantastic operation. The "LG" in LG Surf Camp stands for Luciano Gonzalez. He used to be an instructor at .......... but decided to start his own camp. And what a camp it is! From the moment I walked into the amazing penthouse on the beach, I was blown away by the view, the accommodations, and, most of all, Luciano's friendliness and hospitality. I was initially hesitant to travel to a foreign country by myself, but Luciano quickly made me feel at home. Not only was Luciano generous with his kitesurfing instruction, he was also generous with his free time, giving me rides into town and taking me to locals-only spots for authentic (and delicious) Dominican food and drinks. Luciano grew up in Cabarete and shares his knowledge of all the best places to eat, drink, and party. Given that he was sponsored by Red Bull and flew around the world for surfing competitions, he also has some amazing life stories to share ... read more on TRIPADVISORJtownjd, San Francisco, California
“Fantastic Place!”: Went to LG surfcamp for ten days in February and it was great. Travelled on my own and was instantly taken care of as one in the "family" at the camp. Accommodation is great and Luciano is a great host, taking care of everyone! I can absolutely recommend this surfcamp if you want a luxury stay at the beach with top noche surfing with great instructor. Suits persons of all age, travelling alone or together! I will most definatelly come back! ... read more on TRIPADVISORJenni2013_13, Stockholm, Sweden
"One of the best trips of my life": Thanks Luciano and LG Surf Camp!”Short summary: LG Surf is fantastic and I will happily & confidently recommend it to friends & family. Great for anyone - singles, couples, families, elementary aged children, teens. Activities for all levels or just enjoy the beach/pool. Luciano is a pro, an incredible instructor and host. Want more details? ..... I went to LG Surf Camp not quite knowing what to expect. I had found it online, the reviews were positive and the photos looked good. I had never surfed before and I was traveling alone. (I have worked & been involved the travel industry for some 16+ years) What was it like when I actually arrived? Absolutely fantastic! I am so glad I took the chance because it far exceeded any picture I had in my mind ... read more on TRIPADVISORTomasinaTrvl
