Lovely accommodations a short walk from the premier surfing beach Playa Encuentro. The owners Walter and Jeanette live on the property and provide the most friendly and professional support to their guests. It was a wonderfully relaxing vacation, and I look forward to visiting again!

Honestly I was skeptical of going to a place in a different country that I had no idea about. When we got there it was like we were family. He personally took us to get groceries and get our money exchanged then showed us around the town. I really dk their intention is to make money I think they just love this job and love the different people from all over the world staying there. Always felt safe, and at one point we left our room with all our money and valuables laying around, not knowing they did room service every day, and every cent was just moved off to the side so they could clean for us, never felt the need to use the safe provided. They were so kind, and all of the people staying there were some of the coolest people I have ever met! Highly recommend if you are going to stay around this area you stay at this place.

Take us back! My husband and I just returned from a weeklong stay at Hooked Cabarete and have nothing but good things to say about it.

The rooms were extremely clean and private and the grounds were beautifully maintained, not to mention the fun surf that is only a short walk down the road!

Walter and Jeanette were wonderful hosts who went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed, and had great advice for what to do and where to go in the area.

The trip exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to go back next year!

5 stars plus 5 more. If you want to have an absolutely perfect Caribbean vacation, stay at Hooked. The accommodations were great, hospitality was amazing, and the grounds were extremely quiet and relaxing.

Hooked gave us everything we were expecting out of this vacation and then some.

Walter and Jeanette were great hosts. The place was beautiful and located in a quiet area just outside of Cabarete. Encuentro beach was a 10 min leisurely walk from Hooked and an easy one. The beach was a nice alternative to the hectic beach in Cabarete. And, if you're up for a longer walk, it is possible to walk to downtown Cabarete via the beach. Carlos does an awesome job on the grounds of Hooked making it like a little oasis after a long day of taking one of the tours out of Cabarete.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.
