Very nice place if you want to be close to surf. Nice garden with 2 swimming pools. Lots of fruit in the garden with mangos all you can eat. You can use the kitchen to make your own meals. The owner is very friendly and willing to help and advice you in anything you need to know.

I'm very happy you liked your stay even though the waves for surfing were only good for one of you: the beginner. If you want to be sure to catch big waves you have to come in the winter. Summer in Cabarete is for strong winds and not so much for waves. I really hope you can make it back... More

Located minutes away from the pristine Encuentro beach, Surf Break boasts a beautiful garden, comfortable suites, staff that goes above and beyond the call of duty, and a gorgeous, immaculately clean pool. Since my first visit a year ago, they added a breathtakingly beautiful penthouse yoga studio with a variety of styles taught by expertly teachers. The management will happily... More

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

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

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.
