Spent January 29th - Frbruary 5th 2013 at Hooked and had a wonderful experience. Was surprised to find new owners of only four minths of the facility after booking this place based on great reviews from the past, but the new owners are eager to at least live up to the reputation, if not surpass it. I travelled there alone, and found as much solitude or social interaction as I wanted. The owners Walter and Jeanette have, in a short time, established a relationship with many of the local business owners, including taxis, restaurants, and surf schools to make your stay here as effortless as an all inclusive. The location is almost perfect. It is a close four-minute walk to the Encuentro Beech, where the surfing is great. The grounds are also only a short 8 minute scooter ride form the core of the Cabarete. Which means a quiet place to relax, as well a great place nearby to shop, people watch, dine, or party. I am planning to go back next year for more of the same.
