Stayed here for three nights. The manager, Jessica, is super nice and really helpful. She was available whenever we had a question. The hotel is really close to the Playa Encuentro (about 5-10 minutes walking), so it is perfect if you want to surf. The garden and the rooms (we stayed in the orange (deluxe rooms)), are really beautiful, and... More

Surf Break is a perfect location for surfers. It is in walking distance to Playa Encuentro, with is the surf beach near Cabarete. The hotel is very nice. The staff is amazing, beautiful property and nice rooms. The staff helps you in every way they can; surf lessons and other adventures, eating tips and more. A very quiet neighborhood. I... More

I needed to find a place to say for the last three days of my trip and had been walking past Surf Break on my way to surf. I inquired about availability when walking past one day and Jessica kindly showed me a couple options and booked my room right then! It is such a calm and peaceful place to... More

On my second trip to Cabarete I stayed at Surf Break Hotel with my brother inlaw and friend. This was an excellent choice! Surf Break is located less then a mile from Encuentro and offers cozy rooms, and awesome staff. The hotel is owned by Julius who is a great host. They offer home cooked breakfast and dinner several days... More

We stayed in three different locations in DR when we visited and Surfbreak, by far, was my favorite. Everyone was so helpful, friendly and really made you feel at home. The food is wonderful - healthy and fresh. So good - especially breakfast after surfing. (We signed up for the 3 day surf lessons which was perfect for us). I... More

We were looking for a quiet place nearby the Encuentro surf break and passed this lodge on our way there. Surf within walking distance. Clean rooms, nice pool, quiet nights away from crowded cabarete. Newly renovated, good atmosphere.

My husband and I traveled to the Dominican Republic (first timers) via the Santo Domingo Airport and made the 4 hour trek north to Cabarete via our rental car. The drive on the new toll road was easy & beautiful (through the mountains) .... while the drive through the towns along the north shore were also enjoyed (beautiful ocean views),... More

I travelled alone and looked for a place close to the surf spot Encuentro and away from the tourist places Sosua and Cabarete. Surf Break is located perfectly in between. They renovated the place completely this year, so everything is in very good shape. For high season the price per night was absolutely fair. The place is approx. 5 minutes... More

Stayed there for 5 days at the end of December, 2014, and had a great stay. For the price and location, I really don't think you can beat it. They had just complete renovations, so everything was brand new. The key for me is the location, you can walk to the beach, but a close second to that was the... More
