Chris (November 2013)
The Surfcamp is one of the beste we have been to. The owners, Peyo and Babette, are the most friendly, relaxed and helpful people you can imagine. The rooms are very clean and and the camp is a great base for exploring the island, whether you surf or not. The camp is also good for traveling with children. Our one year old daughter really enjoyed to stay in the camp.

Talia (September 2013)
We stayed here for two nights in July, which is the off season so we had the entire place nearly to ourselves. It was very relaxing and just what we were hoping for. Peyo and his wife are wonderful hosts and they are very easy going and we enjoyed chatting with them in the evenings. Peyo served us a wonderful breakfast every morning, a perfect start to our day. We were also able to use the bicycles that they had available at the camp. There is a nice open space where you will find couches, books, hammocks and a computer where you can sit and relax. There is lots to do and the beach is only about a 20 minute walk from the camp. We very much enjoyed our stay at the SunSet Surf Camp and would recommend this place even for those who are not there to surf! Thank you Peyo!

Hayley (May 2013)
In early 2007 my then-boyfriend and I were offered a free trip to Guadeloupe. By the time we tried to redeem the trip voucher, the hotel portion of the trip (Club Med) had expired. With two plane tickets in hand and only a little money saved up (we were college freshmen at the time), we searched around online and found SunSet Surf Camp. We booked 5 nights in March at the camp and loved every minute. Babette and Peyo were incredibly gracious hosts, and they did not seem to mind that my boyfriend and I did not attend any surf lessons or extra activities while at the camp. There were two family-style dinners during our trip, each with fabulous, fresh, adventurous food and delicious fish caught earlier that day. The liquors and red wine were flowing, too. The breakfasts were simple but good with fresh baguettes, jellies and meats. There was no air conditioning, which surprised me at first but I realized we didn't need it much as the evenings were cool and breezy. The beds, while firmer than I usually like, had mosquito nets hung over them, which helped as the bugs could be annoying when you are trying to sleep. The common room had plenty of games and a hammock. My boyfriend and I had never played chess before, but were quite decent players by the time we left, thanks to the help of an older guest who served as our teacher. When not teaching surf lessons, Peyo could be found behind the bar serving drinks. It was nice to have the common area fridge available to store anything we bought at the grocery store. There was never any worry that someone would come by and eat our food our steal our beer. 

There was a wonderful pizza place next door to the camp that we ate at several times. Very thin, crispy dough with good toppings. We frequented the street vendors too for crepes and baguette hot dogs, all very inexpensive. Not knowing any French, it was a bit difficult for us to get around in the country. It seemed almost nobody knew English, so we did feel a bit isolated from the other travelers and people we met in town. If I were to go back again, I would definitely rent a car to make traveling easier. The Surf Camp provided bicycles, which we used every day for the 5-minute bike ride to the beach and the grocery store for lunch foods, though they were not in the best condition. We took taxis to dinner at night. The fancier restaurants were about a 15-20 minute walk from camp, which would have been fine except that we were constantly being begged for money by some of the impoverished locals, which made us a little uncomfortable.

Anyway, the water at the beach in St. Francois was gorgeous, clear turquoise blue and just about a 10 minute walk down the big hill from the camp. It is technically a topless beach, but I only saw small children and very old women going topless. The fact that anyone was topless was a big surprise to me, considering we do not have topless or nude beaches in the US.

We made a couple of friends at the camp, who all coincidentally traveled alone on holiday. Two of the gentlemen's names I can't remember - a French corporate lawyer living in London and French rally car driver - and Erwin, an air Traffic controller in France (hello Erwin if you are out there - you were so handsome and nice :)). All three men were very friendly, interesting people, and spoke better English than most! One of them had rented a car and offered to drive the rest of us to Basse Terre and Saint Anne to see the city. In Basse Terre you must visit Guadeloupe National Park and the Rhum Bolonge, the rum distillery. The climate of Basse Terre was so vastly different than in Saint Francois. It was humid with lush rainforest and beautiful waterfalls. It felt like a different part of the world completely. Saint Anne had beautiful beaches and really had the livelihood we felt we were missing sometimes in Saint Francois. Lots of good restaurants along the beachfront, and you can watch the sailboats come in while laying on the white sand. There were many street vendors selling sou

All in all, it was a wonderful trip! I am not sure that I would ever at the Surf Camp again, but that is only because my preferences and income level have increased since graduating college 🙂 . For those who are wondering, once we arrived in Guadeloupe, my boyfriend and I spent less than $100USD over the 5-day period, including all meals, drinks, transportation, tips, and souveneirs we brought home.
