A friend and I just came home from a wonderful vacation at Hooked. The owners are super nice, relaxed people. They helped us whenever we needed something and even drove us to the supermarket and invited us for a barbecue. The rooms have everything you need. The terrace is the place where we were hanging out the most and it... More

Just came back from another wonderful vacation at Hooked Cabarete, the perfect place to relax, enjoy the nice climate at the beach and do a lot of sports such as surfing or kiting. Thanks Walter and Jeannette for the great hospitality, it felt like coming home!

My wife and I recently returned from a very satisfying and relaxing 3 night/4 day stay at Hooked Cabarete. I am Dominican and we enjoy traveling the Dominican Republic at least once every year, visiting different places on the island. We had never been to Cabarete before, so we decided to check it out. At first, my wife was skeptical... More

Located next to Encuentro beach between Sosua and Cabarete, these family run garden bungalows are awesome. Part of a small complex with comunal pool and BBQ area, the functional rooms are nicely furnished, all come with a kitchen and out front you have a private deck with a hammock and lounge chairs.

This location is ideal. It's the perfect mix between camp but you also have your privacy because you have your own apartment. It's very close to a beautiful beach perfect to surf and it's about 10min max ride to Cabarete. This area is perfect for any activities and trips you can imagine. The owners help you with tips and contacts... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and could not say enough great things about Hooked. It was such a pleasure to stay there! The management is amazing. We felt so pampered!
