“Enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

very friendly staff. it's a close walk to the beach where we rented surf boards. nice waves for beginners. the pool and dog in the hostel were very nice. each room has a hammock outside. remember to use the mosquito nets though. the hostel was also a bit hard to find at first

Stayed April 2011, traveled with friends

Me and my wife stayed here in December 2011 and had a great time. The place is clean and has a very good vibe. Flo was a great host and made us feel at home. You really can't beat the this place for the price and for what you get. As a surfer, this is the best place to stay in the Dominican Republic, walk to the beach to surf and far enough away from town to get away from all the touristy attractions but close enough to catch a ride to indulge in it. Driving the scooter into town was a experience all to itself, everyone should try it at least once. Staying here agian when I come back! Thanks Florian!

My third January at Hooked, and, once again, more good times. I stayed alone (travel buddy cancelled last minute) and hooked up w/some great folks. Surfed every day and went for some long walks when the wind came on (discovered path to beach so that I could've walked on the beach all the way to Cabarete). Flo took good care, as always, and Tino--the local yogi-guru gave some classes in the yard. Good to stretch after a surf....See you next year, dudes.

We stayed at Hooked for 3 weeks. Best beach for surfing right on your doorstep and town close by. Great experience driving the scooters. Thanks guys and see you next year. Say Hi to the dogs.

I stayed at Hooked Cabarete together with one friend in May this year. We had a perfect holiday! The accommodation was good! We stayed in a nice, clean and big room with a private terrace with hammock, and just 5 steps further, on the green field with palm trees, a lovely swimming pool! The couple managing the place were very friendly, and organized a lot of things, like BBQ's, trips to the paradise beaches and canyoning. The surf beach was just a short walk away and the waves were perfect!! It was definitely the best surf holiday ever!!!

My Husband, my brother and I stayed at Hooked for 10 days for our Anniversary. From the minute we got to this beautiful Oasis to the day we left Nino, Frieda and the staff at the hotel made us feel home away from home. The walk to the Playa Encuentro its only about 10 minutes, its a beautiful walk and Playa Encuentro had waves every day we were there. We loved the surf and the people at the surfboard shack as well. Dominican's are very warm people. The food its absolutely great. We rented a car so we can drive to the city of Cabarete. We will definitely make Cabarete another surf spot in our travels and will not anywhere else but Hooked Cabarete! Lastly but not least, Bill and Sita were always coming to our patio for a visit and we loved that very much....

Nino and Freido did such a great job helping me and the other guests feel comfortable that we could really forget all of our cares and enjoy all that Cabarete has to offer. The atmosphere at Hooked was active and social...for example, we all joined together for a family style barbque one night and tried several activities together like snorkeling, hiking,and paddle boarding.

Nino and Frieda have great recommendations for cafes for breakfast, markets for fruits and groceries, and restaurants for dinners. Options in Cabarete seemed to be flowing and open.

Traveling solo to Hooked, I was OK with jumping on the back of a motoconcho for the 7km ride in to town, but when I return with my wife and 3 year old son, I will rent a car. The two other couples at the hotel rented cars, so it is probably a popular decision there for groups of two or more since the hotel is a little removed from the main road and main strip downtown.

Two large dogs on the property are extremely friendly but can surprise you!
