10/10 Exceptional

If you want a place that looks nice, peaceful and away from the city population. Then you've got a winner. Everything is as you see in the pictures. The only downside is being a bit far away unless you have transportation.

10/10 Exceptional

Property is small, but owner, staff, and pets are really friendly and make you feel at home. It's a quiet area, and walking distance from the beach, but an easy spot to get into/out of for trips to Sosua center or Cabarete etc. Property is well maintained as well and despite lots of guests never felt full, loud or overwhelming. Planning to return to Sosua later this year and will almost definitely stay here.

This was a pretty and very well kept small hotel, in pretty tranquil gardens and a short walk to the sea. Great hospitality from the host Nikki. Excellent place to stay just outside of Sosua town. I will be back!

Simply put, this place is amazing! From the moment you walk through the doors, the host Nicki makes sure you feel right at home (she’s awesome!). Great host, beautiful property, onsite parking, great wifi, great breakfast (extra cost), gated community, total relaxation... What’s not to like? I wouldn’t dare stay anywhere else when I am in Sosua. Just got back and already looking forward to returning soon! Thank you Nicki for such an amazing experience!

4/10 Fair

Habitación pequeña, piscina de cloro, Beida$$$$
Habitación muy pequeña. La piscina tenía una cantidad extremadamente alta de cloro, lo que hacía que fuera incómodo nadar. Los anfitriones le ofrecen un bar de autoservicio, pero debe lavar la licuadora, los vasos tienen que pedir hielo, hacer su propia bebida y luego lavar todo y vuelve a ponerlo en su lugar y luego te llevas una sorpresa cuando te vas cuando ella te cobra 20 dólares estadounidenses por una bebida diciéndote que los precios estaban en la pared pero no los ves por ningún lado un abogado estadounidense que decidió retirarse y aprovecharse de turistas viajeros
