If you are looking for a magic place in Cabarete area - Hooked is the one. First of all the location (but not the best of all). It stays right at the surfing beach - playa Encuentro - 10 min walk and you are the first one in the water with the fist lights before all the beach-taxis and shuttles... More

We have enjoyed two weeks with Walter and Jeanette, who are excellent hosts. They make you feel like home from the moment you arrive. The place is small, friendly and very safe. The apartments have good size, a small kitchen and a large terrace. An additional advantage is the fact that you can drink the tap water. Especially if you... More

Just returned from a week staying here and had an excellent time. Hooked is a few minutes walk from Encuentro so absolutely ideal if the aim of your holiday is to surf. It's also very quiet and therefore perfect for really relaxing and chilling out while on holiday. In addition, Hooked is a small, friendly place which is also very... More

A few weeks before our departure to Cabarete, we had to cancel for medical reason. A few days prior to our scheduled departure date we had the GO from the doctor. Although Hooked had no more space available, they went behond any expectations, making sure to take care of us by securing a suite at their neighbours. This meant that... More

I must say Walter and Jeanette made every effort to make sure we and the other guests were taken care of. From the local dish we had for dinner the first night, I believe called Sancocho to reimbursing us for a taxi fare which I did not mind paying but Walter felt inclined to cover. We visited DR with surfing... More

Our rental car got a flat and he took care of us. Gerd, the manager got someone to remove the tire and personally brought it to get it repaired. The car repair place knew him and just did the work immediately withouth any hassle or over payment. I don't speak Spanish and so this was definitely a plus! He dropped... More

I had an awesome time with my friends staying at Hooked. Walter and Jeanette are fantastic hosts and the location is just super. I came to surf with my friends and unfortunately the waves where not that good but we still had a great time and met a lot of other lovely guests staying at Hooked. I can only recommend... More

We live in Santo Domingo and traveled to Cabarete for Holy week long week end. We found Hooked at the last minute by internet. It turned out to be the best choice we could ever make! The weather was really bad which could have ruined our week end but it didn't matter at all thanks to the great experience we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hooked Cabarete is the accommodation located closest (500m) from the world-class surf spot called Playa Encuentro in Cabarete. Our guests are active people who "hate" big All Inclusive resorts. We cater to wave surfers, kiters, wind surfers, divers, hikers, mountain bikers, Yoga enthusiasts, Spanish learners etc Our studio apartments are located around a pool in a tropical garden. Our place is very quiet, safe and clean. The owners Jeannette and Walter Derungs are Swiss who have lived mostly in the USA before settling in the DR. Our goal is to make sure our guests go home with happy memories of a interesting and relaxing vacation ... more   less
