Hooked was exactly what we were looking for - a homey/individual place with comfortable accommodations and the perfect balance of guests interacting and enjoying the peace of the place. Sosua and Cabarete are a short drive away so you can dance and eat out and still return to your peaceful and quiet bungalow at night; the location is ideal for... More

I have to say you cannot find better hosts than Jeanette and Walter. We were picked up by Marino, their very nice driver and got to the place safe and sound. I loved our bungalow apartment. There were cute tropical touches everywhere: bamboo furniture, a hammock on our patio. The grounds were well maintained and our bungalow was nice and... More

We, a family of 4, are just back from our 2nd vacation at Hooked. Everything was just perfect and we were so happy to come back being welcomed like family. Our boys, 15 and 8 loved the pool and we all had a great time surfing. The fresh fish delivered by the fisherman and (perfectly organized by Walter the owner),... More

Lovely accommodations a short walk from the premier surfing beach Playa Encuentro. The owners Walter and Jeanette live on the property and provide the most friendly and professional support to their guests. It was a wonderfully relaxing vacation, and I look forward to visiting again!

Honestly I was skeptical of going to a place in a different country that I had no idea about. When we got there it was like we were family. He personally took us to get groceries and get our money exchanged then showed us around the town. I really dk their intention is to make money I think they just... More

Take us back! My husband and I just returned from a weeklong stay at Hooked Cabarete and have nothing but good things to say about it. The rooms were extremely clean and private and the grounds were beautifully maintained, not to mention the fun surf that is only a short walk down the road! Walter and Jeanette were wonderful hosts... More

5 stars plus 5 more. If you want to have an absolutely perfect Caribbean vacation, stay at Hooked. The accommodations were great, hospitality was amazing, and the grounds were extremely quiet and relaxing. Hooked gave us everything we were expecting out of this vacation and then some.

We had a wonderful stay at the Hooked Cabarete. The rooms are very clean and nice. The owners are great people that went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. It's a great place for families or just friends to stay.

Walter and Jeanette were great hosts. The place was beautiful and located in a quiet area just outside of Cabarete. Encuentro beach was a 10 min leisurely walk from Hooked and an easy one. The beach was a nice alternative to the hectic beach in Cabarete. And, if you're up for a longer walk, it is possible to walk to... More
