This is a well kept place with good security, nice pools and a very short walk to banks and stores but note that the condos have 3 separate locking bedrooms, which will in high seasons rent out to others who will share the kitchen and living room.
In my case in early June nobody else showed up so I had the whole condo for a week. They have a few small condos for one person but rates are higher. Nice pool and also a smaller infinity pool on the waterfront. The units have mostly been sold and are occupied by families with children, so like everywhere it can get noisy whenever school is out. Likewise, if you happen to be there when the lawn crews or the mosquito sprayers come the noise (and chemical fog) goes on for much of the day.
Like some others on the north coast, the lovely little beach in the photos was eliminated by the big storm a few years ago, so like many others in the DR, when the ocean is calm they put out a ladder so you can get in and out of the water. However, the price of a mistake can be a nasty encounter with the sharp coral, so I resisted the temptation. However, they give you directions to the Casa Marina beach about 100m away which you reach by a poorly marked path next to Sosua by the Sea. There is a brown iron gate which is locked at night. Its only about 1.5km to the big Playa Alicia.
The luxury Hispaniola Condos next door have their own beach but are pricey.
I was in the off season so their restaurant was not active but they gave me a breakfast coupon for the nice little Margot Café nearby.
I had a nice stay but now that I understand the area I will pick one of the many alternatives next time.
If I was to stay here again I would definitely try to choose an apartment with the ocean view. there was not much of a view in the apartment that I stayed in.I had a view of the parking lot.I would also prefer to have a smart TV because there were not enough channels in English.
