I stayed for 9 nights in Hooked. Everything was perfect. David (Interim Manager of Hooked) answered all my questions very quickly prior to my arrival with the bus and arranged for me being picked up from the bus station in Sosua. One can see that Hooked is a very well kept place - it is nicer than the pictures I... More

Granted we were told it's predominantly a surfers camp and we don't surf, but it turned out to be the most beautiful cozy hideaway! From the hammocks in front of our cabins to the perfectly structured landscape surrounding the pool. It felt like your secret hideaway. Everything felt like it was dropped there out of Nicolas Sparks novel! And don't... More

David who manages is wonderfully helpful and supportive. The grounds are beautiful the safety of guests in beyond reproach and the atmosphere is quiet, quaint and home like. Hooked is 5 minute walk to the infamous Encuentro breaks and has a tie to one of the surf camps to make arrangements and logistics easy. It is also central to Cabarete... More

The place is great very private. All the rooms are spot clean and fully equipped with everything you need. The security is great and all installation are working like it should. Best of it all is the attention, the owner is really kind and trustworthy, will definitely go back there on my next visit. Highly recommended.

Hooked was a great choice for our stay in the DR. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the hostility of the hosts. Our room was very clean which is a plus!
