Me and my husband were looking for a nice, small, not too touristy place not too far from the airport of Puerto Plata. We found this wonderful place Hooked Cabarete. It's like a boutique hotel with 8 studio-apartments all on the ground floor around a beatiful, large, tropical garden with pool. When we were there, quite some people that staid there were surfers or kitesurfers since Hooked is the closest spot to the surfbeach, but it was not like a young surfcamp. We didn't come to surf, but felt totally comfortable staying there since there are so many other things to do as well. Together with some other guests and the manager, we went to the 27 waterfalls (which was so great) and the owner showed us some beautiful, scret places along the north cost. We also went a day into the mountains on the quad bikes they have, we snorkeled, went horse back riding at the beach together with the neighbour friend of Hooked who has some nice horses, and made some nice long walk along the beaches (at some places where we walked it felt like being on a deserted island, so nice and quiet). Florian, the manager, helped us a lot with finding out what to do and where to go and he also recommended the nicest (and cheapest) restaurants. We also had a barbecue together with the other people at Hooked and went out to a restaurant in the mountains.
Our room was beautiful, clean and we even had our own little kitchen. And a nice private terrace with hammock! The combination of doing all these great things together with the super relaxed room and garden, made our vacation the best. We will be back!!
